a dozen things you don't know about me

1.  i've never eaten a brussel sprout, artichoke, or any other "weird" vegetable.  & don't intend to either!!!

2.  since we grew up on a farm, my parents would cook "weird" meats like cow's tongue or heart.  i would go to bed hungry on those nights!!  i'd rather starve than eat a cow's tongue!!!!!!

3.  i lived in 15 different apartments or houses from 1980 to 1989.

4.  i've lived in the same house from 1990 to now!!!!

5.  i hate to shop.

6.  i don't like my name.  i was named after my 2 grandmothers.  i wish my name was emily.

7.  i would have loved living during the civil war era - except i would want deodorant, makeup & to shave my legs!!!  i also would have been a rebel because i would have removed my big hoop skirt in order to get a fantastic tan!!!!!!!

8.  my mom was a fantastic gardener & could grow anything.

9.  i can kill dirt!  (wait, some of you DO know that!!!!)

10.  growing up, i wanted to be an architect.  i would sit for hours & draw house plans.

11.  i grew up swimming in a pond; now, the neighborhood pool is too dirty for me!!!!!!!!!!

12.  i love my job, but would rather be a SAHW (stay at home wife), living in a little old house out in the texas hill country, loving & spoiling my husband like crazy!!!!

now tell me a dozen things i don't know about you!!!!

and be blessed!!!
