11 Random Things About Me

1. I LOVE the color orange! I literally have orange everywhere!

2. I love kids. I'm extremely more comfortable when I'm holding a baby or talking to a preschooler.

3. I get a funny rush when I see my name written places. (I know I'm weird!)

4. I tend to be over-prepared for things. If we are taking a road trip I've been known to take 4 or 5 different things with me as entertainment for the ride.

5. I will dip almost anything in Ranch dressing. I hate ketchup so I use it as a substitute.

6. I HATE socks and shoes! I go barefoot whenever I can, and when I need shoes it's flip-flops except when there is snow on the ground or it's a fancy event.

7. I'm a firm believer in the fact that God created this world in 6 literal days. And I get offended and my opinion of a person lowers if they say they believe otherwise.

8. I absolutely love giving presents to people. I get so excited that I often can't wait for B-days or Christmas.

9. I'm an extreme cheapskate. I cringe at spending more than $5 for something, and I've gotten pretty good at hunting down a deal.

10. I love Iced Tea! I can sometimes be a snob about what kinds I like but I've found some core places that have the best. McDonald's Sweet Tea is one of those!

11. I obsessively quote movies, trailers, commercials, random youtube videos etc. on a regular basis. Often actually using them as part of conversations. You can say just about anything to me and I can most likely come up with a quote that is applicable.

Thanks for tagging me, Abbi :) And about the 6 literal days of creation...Amen, sister! Thanks for standing up for the truth! I'm like, obcessed with AiG, and I was so excited when i got the opportunity to see Dr. David Menton in person at a conference. I was one of the only people younger than 50 who went, which was really sad, but it was a great experience! Loved getting to know more about you, Abbi :) See ya on Goodreads!
