25 Things to Know About Me

I read an article in US Weekly about Molly Ringwald. One of the more interesting parts of the article was a section called "25 Things to Know About Me". And I was inspired...

1. I am always on the hunt for the perfect shade of “Hello Sailor!” red lipstick and toe nail polish.

2. I would love to cook (read: eat) my way through France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Greece.

3. I LOVE buffets.

4. When I was 12 I decided I wanted to be an attorney because I was completely infatuated with Susan Dey's character on L.A. Law.

5. I really do want World Peace.

6. I can fit 23 green grapes in my mouth at one time.

7. I’m a Chino Bandido addict.

8. When I hear a “big” word, I feel compelled to spell it in my head.

9. Some people remind me of animals.

10. If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be my Funny Grandma.

11. Sandra Bullock (read: Gracie Lou and/or Birdie) would play me in the Lifetime movie of my life.

12. My imagination knows no limits.

13. I have never mastered the cartwheel.

14. I don’t like people invading my personal space.

15. The window of my childhood bedroom seemed very high off the ground when you stood outside my house. At least to a five year old it did. Because of this, I would pretend I was Juliet.

16. I think sending someone a card or letter through the mail is a beautiful way to tell them how special they are to you.

17. I believe writing someone a love letter – and sending it – is a dying art.

18. I’ve been learning how to play the banjo for 6 years now. So far, I can rock out a killer version of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”. I'm thinking about touring Europe.

19. I LOVE creating and editing documents – PowerPoint, Excel, Word, Publisher - you name it, I love it!

20. Savannah, Georgia is my home.

21. Motherhood humbles me daily.

22. I’m currently reading three books (Confections of a Master Baker, The Four Agreements, The Shack)

23. I really love to sing. Too bad I’m so tone impaired.

24. I don’t like to go places alone, or where I won’t know anyone.

25. I’m in the process of writing a cookbook and a children’s book series (based on ture stories from a moderately neat-o life).
