(Anybody remember Holly Hobby?  Circa 1977!)

I don’t know about you, but now and again, I love getting to know the blogger behind a blog I follow.  And I want to assure you that my life is far more than door decorations or recipes.  In fact, for weeks, my front doors have been bare, I haven’t cooked in a week, and my house is dirty;).  So here are “18 on the 18th” real-life things about me…

  1. Wife to one, mama to three!
  2. Arkansas is my home, but Mississippi will always have my heart.
  3. 9 times out of 10, I would choose Mexican food when eating dinner out.
  4. I only cook a real, live decent dinner about once a week.  Sometimes twice.  The truth behind a recipe blog;)
  5. A relationship with Christ is the only reason I am sane most days.
  6. Nearly every single thing on the walls of my home has a special meaning or is an original creation by someone I know.
  7. I am a really good, but not very patient driver.  Recently reminded of this as one of my children uttered “idiot” and revealed they heard me say it in the car.  Just grand.
  8. Guilty pleasures-Hot Tamales, Junior Mints, raw cookie dough, Dateline NBC, wine.
  9. I have a Bachelors of Court Reporting.  I didn’t use it a day.  Finishing my degree constituted many dark days.
  10. My dream vacation is Italy with David.  We love talking about going there one day.
  11. I pretty much hate to exercise.  Perhaps that will change once all of my children are in school all day and I have more time.  As it stands, using my 2 free hours getting sweaty and staying gross all day does nothing for me.
  12. I LOVE Little League baseball.
  13. I love Dark Roast Community Coffee.
  14. I love blogging, the blogging community, relationships built with readers, and the creativity that blogging inspires.
  15. I treasure family heirlooms, big and small, and love using an item I know was well-loved by someone in the past!
  16. My recent favorite shows are The Office and Downton Abbey.  Always DVR’d.
  17. I have naturally (very) curly hair.
  18. I can play the piano.  But I rarely do.  I should change that.
