11 Random Facts About Myself

1. I have an OPEN and CLOSED sign that hangs in my kitchen so when my boys are asking for snacks 5 mins after a meal I can point to the sign and say, “Kitchen’s CLOSED.” As if it’s out of my hands.
2. I would love to have Beach Cruiser pedal bike with a basket on the front.
3. I love learning new things and taking classes! I’ve been SO jealous of all the crafty retreats so many of my favorite bloggers have been going on. Oh the cool things I would learn! Someday I will go on one!
4. I love big fuzzy socks. I often pack a pair in the diaper bag to slip on when at friend’s houses.
5. White subway tile is the best!
6. I didn’t get the whole UGG thing when they 1st came out. Maybe it was the fact that they were often paired with jean mini skirts. I bought a pair of knockoffs when I was preggo and fell in love with them! I wore them everyday and with everything (not a jean mini skirt). I loved them SO much my husband treated me to a real pair last year and I adore them!
7. My Grandma used to say that she needed to do the worsh instead of wash for laundry. It makes me smile whenever I think of that…maybe I’ll say worsh when I’m a grandma, too!
8. My favorite cupcakes have a lot of frosting and only a little actual cake.
9. I surprised my husband with my mad scoop ball talent.
10. My toe nails are always painted.
11. I love the Real Housewives franchise. I watch them all!
