    One of which I am having removed. (Which hurts like hell, by the way) Think before you ink.

  8. I love camping and can build a fire like nobody’s business.

    When I was 5, our neighbor’s cat had kittens. I picked out an orange kitten.

    When we were walking home with our new kitty, my mom asked me, “What do you want to name your new kitten?” and I replied, “Her name is Violet!” HA!

    I think I’ve always been a little bit quirky. 🙂

  2. I used to play the flute.

    I started to play the flute in fifth grade and continued until I was a Sophomore in high school. I wish I wouldn’t quit, but I hated the marching band.

  3. I love the water.

    And I’m a pretty good swimmer and could float in the water for hours. I learned to swim at a very early age, and for that, I am thankful.

    I taught my children how to swim when they were babies.

    Hearing someone say they don’t know how to swim makes me sad. Everyone should know how to swim.

  4. I love, love, love to shop!

    I consider shopping a sport! I love big shiny shopping malls, little tiny thrift shops, and online shopping too! I just can’t believe that some people hate shopping! WHAT?!

  5. I love to go to the movies.

    Everything except horror movies. And binging shows at home is fun too. True life confession? I watch too much TV.

  6. I love poetry.

    A good poem or song lyric can take you anywhere. I know, deep thoughts.

  7. I’m like an egg.

    Tough as nails on the outside but soft on the inside.

  8. I took an IQ test when I was younger.

    I think I was in my early forties. I was feeling very underestimated. Ever feel that way?

    Anyway, turns out I was right. People do underestimate me.

  9. I forgive, but I never forget.

    Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they deserve your forgiveness. (source)

  10. I’m short—5′ 4″ on a very, very good day.
  1. And Blonde.

    (and sometimes I tell little white lies. HA!). I’ve been blonde all my life, but it’s gotten darker and darker over the years.

    I have no idea how much gray is in my hair now, although I suspect there is at least a little bit since some of my eyebrows have turned white!

  2. My eyes are blue.

    People sometimes ask if I’m wearing blue contact lenses.

  3. I honestly don’t know why this popped into my head, but here goes—another random fact about me.

    I hate, and I do mean HATE, dirty fingernails.

    Dirty fingernails are always a deal-breaker in my book. Also- never blow your nose at the dinner table.

  4. I love to meditate.

    I mostly meditate in the morning and before bed. I believe that meditation, like gratitude, has improved my life.

    If you want to learn more about the benefits of meditation, I wrote an article about meditating here: The Benefits of Daily Meditation for Women.

  5. My favorite movie of all time is?

    Forest Gump! First of all, I love underdog movies.

    Second, I fell in love with little Forest 5 minutes into the film. Second, Forest Gump is clever, heart-warming, pretty darn sad, and funny all in one!

  6. I love black fingernail polish.

    I wore black fingernail polish in the 80s, and my mother worried about me. Come on, Mom! You had bigger things to worry about!

    Of course, these days, black fingernail polish is all the rage. LOL.

    My favorite nail color? OPI’s Lincoln Park after dark. It’s a black/purple shade it’s the bomb!

  7. Speaking of black.

    I wear a lot of black. Mostly black. What can I say?

    It looks good on me. I think I own at least 50 black t-shirts/tank tops. And maybe 10-15 black dresses.

    Do I need therapy? HA!

  8. I don’t have a favorite color.

    My favorite color changes too much to have a favorite. I love the whole crayon box.

  9. I also have a thing for denim jackets.

    They never go out of style as far as I’m concerned. Also- I would hold on to those skinny jeans if I were you!

    Skinny jeans are fantastic and make me look, well, skinny!

  10. I used to love to wear high heels, but I can’t do it anymore.

    At just shy of 60 years old, with a bad knee- heels are just not a good idea. It’s sad and limiting when you want to dress to impress.
  1. Let’s talk underwire bras.

    Probably the most random fact about me yet. I think that underwire bras are from the devil.

    I haven’t worn an underwire bra for about five years now and only wish I would have burned them all sooner.

  2. I’m blessed to have some of the best friends in the world.

    You know the ones. The ride-or-die girls who have my back no matter what.

    Like Thelma and Louise, only without the car going off the cliff at the end. 🙂

  3. I can cook. But most times, I just don’t want to.

    It’s just not my favorite thing to do these days.

    I love Christmas, but decorating the tree and the whole house and then taking it all down (especially that Christmas village!) has lost its luster after all these years.

    I can’t be the only girl in the world that feels this way. Anyone?

  4. Speaking of Christmas. This is a super random fact about me! I was supposed to be born on Christmas day but was late.

    So instead of being born on Christmas day, I was born on the day of Epiphany. Pretty cool, right?

  5. Here’s the thing about being late.

    I can indeed be late sometimes. Sometimes time just gets away from me. But I’d rather be late than ugly or unprepared. LOL.

  6. I love, love, love time travel movies!

    LOVE! What’s your favorite time travel movie? Mine is The time traveler’s wife.

  7. I consume a ton of water every day!

    How much water do you drink daily? Do you think it’s enough? If you want to know more about how much water you should drink daily, click here.

    I start every day with a big glass of water. First thing in the morning. I keep a small carafe on my bedside table, so I’ve always got water at the ready.

  8. I am in love with candles.

    I guess you could say I’m a bit of a candle freak. But I love candles burning all of the time.

    Candles make me happy. A house without candles is like a day without sunshine.

  9. My intuition is my favorite superpower.


  10. I consider myself to be an extroverted introvert or an ambivert.

Extroverts are typically outgoing, fun-loving, friendly, and talkative. In contrast, introverts are reserved, withdrawn, and introspective with small social circles.

Ambiverts, on the other hand, may exhibit behaviors common to both extroverts and introverts.

Depending on the circumstances, they might prefer to spend an evening alone or be the life of the party. (source).

And that’s me!

  1. In the words of Joan Jett, I love Rock n’ Roll. Always have, always will.

  2. My favorite song is Landslide by Stevie Nicks.

    Although I have many favorites, it’s my number one. Recently, My Son Kyle and I danced to Landslide at his wedding.

    What a beautiful and emotional experience! One of those memories will be etched into my mind forever.

    My oldest son, Tyler, picked “Perfect fan” by the Backstreet Boys for our wedding dance. Oh,
    my heart!

    I sure love my boys and am so proud of the men that they have become.


  3. Sometimes I think about writing a book.

    I’ve got a few ideas. Swimming around in this little head of mine. But don’t worry, I will change the names to protect the innocent and the guilty!

    PS. I also have a dry sense of humor! 🙂


  4. My favorite food?

    That’s a hard one! I love Thai, Italian, Mexican…and there’s nothing better than a good burger! And Pizza! OMG. Now I’m hungry.


  5. I guess we should talk dessert now, right?!

    I love a moist chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and pineapple upside-down cake. And ice cream!


  6. Favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor?

    Right now, I’m into half-baked (and I love the name too!)


  7. I’m afraid of heights, and I’m pretty sure I also have claustrophobia.

    So those movies where they are crawling through a tight air duct or tunnel freak me out! And Bungee jumping? Never.

  8. Roller coasters?! NOPE.

  9. If I could meet one famous person? (alive today), it would be Oprah Winfrey. Love her.

  10. I love to get my hands dirty. I like to be busy. I love a good DIY project.

    So that’s three random things about me in one! Bonus!
