100 things about me

1. I am married to the most wonderful, funny, sweet man who makes me laugh daily (ok, everyone else thinks he's cranky, especially his parents, but what do they know)

4. Antique malls are my favorite place to shop, while I detest the mall (everything is just too new & pricey!)

6. I also eat too many sweets...trying to work on cutting that way down...hello Weight Watchers
7. My favorite flower is the rose, but all flowers make me happy

8. I can't choose a favorite color- how could one be so much better than the rest? But I admit I adore PINK! And my husband would say I adore GREEN! (must be the Irish in me)
9. I enjoy looking at all the talent on Etsy & wishing I had time to do more crafts
