7 Random Facts About Me:

1.      I’m 6’1” and I like to wear high heels (on most days when a lot of walking isn’t required).  What? My hubby’s 6’10” – I feel tiny when I stand next to him… plus is gives me an excuse to buy hot shoes like the ones I’ve been eyeing for about two weeks:
Don’t know where I’d wear these, but you can’y deny the awesomeness. 🙂

2.      As if the love of music didn’t really give it away: I am a bank geek!  I played the flute all throughout middle & high school and on into college where I also played the saxophone (Yes, we had band camps. No, they were nothing like what you saw in American Pie).

3.      I have a son. He is furry, likes to purr a lot, wakes me up when I continually hit the snooze button, and his name is Dusty.

4.      My grandparents were international missionaries who lived in the Domincan Republic for about 10 years, and Trinidad and Tobago for 11.  Trinidad and Tobago is my all-time favorite vacation spot and I really hope to get back there one day (minus the family and plus the husband *smile*).

5.      My great-grandmother collects salt and pepper shakers – she currently has about 1,000 sets in her home (where my sister now resides while she is in a nursing home).

6.      I have an industrial piercing.  I got it on my honeymoon when my bestie said she planned on getting one while we were at the beach.  It’s the best impulse purchase I’ve ever made.

7.      I began a new diet plan last year (as a New Year’s resolution) and I’ve lost 3lbs since last Wednesday.  Ultimate goal: To get down to 150lbs.

What about you – Any random facts about yourself you’d like to share?

  1. Haha! I know, right?!? I only wear heels every so often because I have issues with my feet, but I'm thinking I'd gladly wear these ALL the time if I had them 😉

C'mon! Don't Be Shy ... Talk to Me!
