the ABCs of me

26 Apr

This post was inspired by the ever-creative and super cool Crystal from House of Hearts, who found this fill-in-the-blank via some of her lovely friends. She posted her answers on the blog for us to read and I think this is a great way to let people get to know you better without doing something like twitters boring #100factsaboutme or writing a long-winded post about deep passions and interests. So without further ado, the ABC fill-it-in…

    I like this! I think I’ll give it a try as well.

    Oh, and how about when you hold the door open for someone and they don’t make eye contact or say thank you.

    Although I was a chef, I always hated all kinds of exotic mushrooms. I could not admit to this, or the other chefs would make fun of me. To add to my misery a family member grows premium quality oyster mushrooms & was always laying them on me. It was horrible!
    I’m doing the ambidextrous tendonitis dance, too!
    And it’s your birthday on Sat??? How fun! Life just keeps getting better as you get older!

    Much Love,
