Getting to Know You!!

Today marks my 100th post…how exciting this blogging experience has been for me. I have especially enjoyed making new friends and getting to know so many of you. I so appreciate all of you that regularly visit my blog and leave such kind and encouraging comments. I thought I would use today’s post to let all of you get to know me a little more (I once read one gal’s 100th post with 100 random things about herself…..100 things!! I couldn’t come up with ten!) But, here are some odd, but true, thoughts about me…

Top Three Pet Peeves

*talking on the cell phone while driving (and, yes, I even do this – pathetic!)
*officers running radar and stopping speeders by stepping into the middle of the road to flag them down…..I’ve seen this even on the interstate!
*leaving the toilet seat up (I know its the oldest one in the book…but it drives me crazy – and they know it!!)

Three Things from my “Bucket List”

*visit Dr. Charles Stanley’s church in Atlanta and Paula Deen’s restaurant in Savannah (not necessarily in the same trip)
*publish a children’s book
*lose fifty pounds (yea, maybe sometime before I die…..)

Three Random Things about Me

*I tend to be bit OCD…(but my seasonings are not alphabetized – only my flavorings are!)
*I met my husband while we were both working at the police department and he was my boss..(its not quite as creepy as it sounds but it is always an attention getter when meeting new folks)
*Right after my daughter (our first-born) arrived, she was rushed off to ICU and I really didn’t get a chance to see her. Naturally, I was asking everyone to tell me about her and all they were talking about was her red hair! Seriously…I didn’t believe them (not my husband, not the doctor, not the nurses!)- apparently red hair is in the family three generations back – and I literally made a fool of myself disagreeing with them. For the record…she – and her hair – are beautiful!!

Three of My Favorite Things

*Double stuff OEROS….actually, just make that COOKIES!
*Mornings! (major Morning person)
*Talking about Tyler – sharing memories (like the one about his 13th birthday!)

Three of My Best Memories

*Well, there’s that 13th birthday party of Tylers, but I already mentioned that, so
*Our honeymoon trip to Barbados…..
*Family vacation to Maggie Valley (a dot on the map in the NC mountains)
*The view from the Eiffel Tower

Three Things I’m Looking Forward To

*Going to visit Riley
*The first time I see my boy in that Air Force uniform!
*HEAVEN…..I can only imagine!!!
