(You can be my facts can be random and or weird!)

  1. I love to learn. And the scope of what I like to learn about is vast. I love to take things apart and figure things out. I'm mostly a hands-on and visual learner. My favorite segments of Mr. Rogers was always the part where he went to see how something was made. I still love that.
  2. I like my bed made. Neat and tight. And it has to be made before I go to bed. Which irritates Morgan because sometimes I don't get around to making it until it's time to go to bed. And then he's already in it. So I shift him around and cover him up until I get the covers just right. We have one set of sheets that is my favorite too. I'll use the other sets but a lot of the time I'll just strip the bed, was that set, and put them back on. They are just super soft.
  3. I don't like messiness. People told me this would ease after I had children. For me it has gotten worse because I stay home and I notice it more. So I spend more time thinking about it and wandering from room to room tidying things up. Our house it by no means immaculate but I would like it to be!
  4. I love chocolate. Candy, cake, ice cream. Milk chocolate, a little dark chocolate. Hot chocolate, chocolate milk. Chocolate covered donuts. If it's chocolate, I'll probably eat it.
  5. I also love potatoes. I've not had a potato made in a way that I don't like. Baked, mashed, fried, augratin, hash browns, twice baked. I love potatoes.
  6. Before my digital camera I wasn't too interested in taking pictures. I wanted to learn but I figured it was too much work, too expensive, and too difficult for me to do. Then my mom gave us a digital camera for Christmas three years ago and I was off!
  7. I love art and crafts and doing all kinds of crafty things but art was my least favorite thing to teach when I was a classroom teacher. It was difficult and messy and I didn't like the hassle. I'm learning to overcome this with Owen. I want him to try all kinds of creative things. So we paint and color and bake. And I do it in a way that I can handle but that is still enjoyable for both of us. Morgan cooks and bakes with Owen too and his style is far different from mine (Tazmanian Devil of the Kitchen) so Owen is exposed to more than one method!
Okay, 7 people to tag, Noelia, Lynn, Lily, my Sister, Alli, Emily and I can't think of anyone else at the moment that hasn't been tagged so if you want to participate please do!

I had to laugh about the bed ... I think I am genetically incapable of making a bed. Much to my mother's chagrin.
