25 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Hey there! Happy Weekend!  Hope you're having a great day.  Whitney over at The Glamorous Life of a Housewife posted her 25 things you may not know about me list on Wednesday of this week and so I decided to play along.  You should really check out her blog - she is such a sweet and beautiful person who has a wonderful husband and the cutest of little baby boys and her blog is wonderful - I think you'd really like her and her blog, so go check it out!  If you would like to join in - please do so as I'd love to know more about you! :o)

1.  My husband and I met and only dated 2 months before we were married and we'll be married 12 years on the 29th of this month.

2.  I am 8 months older than my husband though he gets told all the time that he looks older than me. :o)

3.  I am a mommy's girl.

4.  I hate Mexican food.

5.  I had to have a complete hysterectomy at the ripe old age of 28, just a year after having my daughter and have been taking HRT's ever since.

6.  I work in the legal field and have worked in it now for over 12 years and I hate it.

7.  I've always wanted to be a stay at home mom. :o(

8.  I was a Baptist my entire life until I met my husband and then I took classes and converted to Catholisism after we had been married for a year.

9.  I enjoy most music, but country music is my favorite by far.

10.  I L.O.V.E. Seafood and could eat my weight in King Crab Legs.

11.  I am a Taurus.

12.  I am 41 years old.

13.  Any time that I eat popcorn, I always have to have something chocolate to eat with it at the same time. 

14.  I am a cat person more than a dog person, though I do love our golden retrievers.

15.  I am a HUGE sports fan - football, basketball and baseball - the Razorbacks, of course, but I am also a huge Chicago Cubs fan too.  I am more of a sports fanatic than my husband and I scream at the tv when we are watching any game.

16.  I am a really good bowler and used to be on leagues for years.

17.  My baby sister is my best friend.

18.  I have a wonderful mother-in-law that I can truly call a friend.

19.  Red, Black, Brown and White are my favorite colors.

20.  Christmas is my most favorite holiday of all times and we go all out.

21.  Fall is my most favorite season of the year and if I could find the perfect place to live that had Fall year round, I would move there tomorrow.

22.  I have NEVER dyed my hair - it is the same true brownish/black color it has been all my life with a few grays starting to pop up here and there.

23.  My grandma Carrie died about 6 years ago, and besides my mother, she was my closest relative that I had and I still cry to this day anytime someone mentions her name or talks about her because I miss her terribly. :o(((

24.  We own 3 houses in 3 different states - 1 in Arkansas, 1 in Connecticut and the one we live in here in NJ.  Anyone want to buy a house?! LOL

25.  I am not a redneck at all, but am a true Country girl at heart and truly hate living near and working in the big city and really miss "home".

So... those are the things I can think of for now that tells you more about me - what are 25 things I don't know about you? I'd love to find out!  Have a great day! And since I can't post anything without a picture, here is the BIG game we will be tuned into and watching this afternoon:
