1. I am a non-confrontational person. I just want everyone to get along. That said, I hate it when people try to "buck the system." You know steal, cut in line, etc. and sometimes I will say or do something depending on the situation.
2. I love McDonald's Cheeseburgers. I know, gross, right? But my favorite way to eat them is to take the pickle off (I hate pickles) and put a layer of french fries on it. I know, this is a weird one, but I did it as a kid and I still like to do it. Now both of my kids do it too.
3. I hate to be late. To anything. It stresses me out and I will intentionally be early to something to avoid being late.
4. This one kind of goes along with the first one. One of my favorite quotes is, "don't sweat the small stuff." I read once somewhere that the "big stuff" is you are born and you die, everything else in the middle is small stuff. I try to live my life this way and not let things get to me. Basically I just want to be a happy person so I strive to do things that make me happy as much as I am able. We have a saying in our house that my hubby came up with and it's, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
5. I love to laugh and try hard to never take myself too seriously. I also love to surround myself with people who love to laugh too.
6. When I was a kid, I loved to roller skate. I was completely passionate about it and at one point, thought I would become a professional roller skater. Of course, I didn't know that such a thing didn't really exist or that people wouldn't pay me to roller skate.
7. I also took lots of dance classes as a child. Ballet, tap, jazz. I was pretty good too, but we moved when I was about 10 years old to a new town and I just lost interest in dancing and started cheerleading instead. I wish I would have kept taking dance lessons and sometimes think I will take an adult ballet class just for fun.
Well, that's it. I thought it would be harder to come up with 7 more things about myself, but if you know anything about me, you know that I love to talk about myself. Really, I do. But even more than talking about myself, I love hear about other peoples stories. Oops, I guess that would be #8.
I mentioned in my last post that my hubby and I went to the flea market on Sunday. It was a good thing Isabel sold a couple things for me at Expo on Friday, otherwise I wouldn't have had any money to spend at the flea market. I get it, I spend it. Anyway, here is what I came home with.
I found a neat barkcloth era slipcover for a chair. Pretty much a cutter, but lots of pretty fabric to craft with, three old dolls, rose apron, bird cage, little tin mirror, spool of black velvet ribbon, little mirror, rick rack, black and white baby pictures, and some misc. rhinestone pieces, another old shopping cart (not pictured) and a scrolly pink metal holder thingy.
Well, this is #99 so you know what that means. Next post will most likely be on Thursday so come back and see what I have planned for the 100th post giveaway.
