Bits and Pieces

Finally here to post about me, it took me awhile and I apologize about it, but time went by too fast with the race, sick kiddos and with me being sick now, too. Anyways, I turned 33 years old and I am proud of my age, I don't lie about it, every year when my birthday comes it makes me happy, it means I am alive, that I am raising my kids.

33- I wear a very colorful crochet skirt that I made almost 10 years ago every Summer and I love it (answering Sandra's question)

I hope you have enjoyed getting to know me a little better!



  1. It still continues to amaze me how much you can learn about a person through activities like this. I knew of some of your random facts, but so many were new to me.

    You know, it's quite impressive that you can wear that beautiful skirt. It means that you've been taking care of yourself and of that skirt!

    Again, Happy Birthday. (I may have to steal this blog idea if I can remember it on my birthday. And if I can think of 36 new things.)

  2. I am late for this but anyway, happy belated birthday!! We love knowing tiny bits of you.

  3. I didn't know you met your hubby on a blind date :) And I'm sorry about your Mom, I did not know that. Hope you had a great birthday!!
