Today's 30 Day Blog Challenge assignment is to list 20 facts about myself that you may not know. 

 1.  I am afraid of deep water.
 2.  Because of fact 1, I cannot swim.
 3.  I think the best vacation for anyone is to go to Disney World.  If I could afford it, I would go every year.  As it stands now, I have only been there three times.

 8.  I work best under pressure.
 9.  I fell in love and married my high school sweetheart.  He is the only man I have ever loved.  We have been together for 41 years.
10. If I could have a pet again, it would be another golden retriever.  I loved our dog Jack so much. 
11. If you are my family or friend, I will fight to the death for you.  You can mess with me, but don't mess with my people.

16. Although I love to blog and be on Facebook and Twitter, I am not technologically inclined.  I don't have an ipad or Nook or Kindle or any of the other things that are so popular right now.  I just got my first laptop (used) at Christmas this year from my nephew.
17. I have three beautiful grand kids.  If you visit here at all, you have seen them.
18. I have met James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Dom Deluise, Ali Vincent and Allison Sweeney.  I even got to interview Ali Vincent for the Sisterhood.

20. I have four beautiful daughters that I was once accused of making on a Xerox machine.  They look that much alike.

Those are my 20 facts.  Sorry they couldn't be more interesting. 


  1. Sounds very exciting to me! How neat to meet those famous people! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Kudos on entering your first photog competition! Everyone starts somewhere. :-)

  3. They WERE interesting!! Good luck on the book challenge~ and I agree with the Xerox fact because your daughters do look identical! All so beautiful!

  4. Your daughters are all BEAUTIFUL!

    I can't even count the number of houses I have lived in my whole life. I should try, though. It would be A LOT.

  5. I LOVE your life. God has truly blessed you. I got a new book for Christmas that sits beside my bed and I have only read 1 chapter. I need to turn off the t.v. and finish it. And you do have a beautiful family.

  6. Your FACTS are incredibly interesting and perfect! They are why so many people love you! Your family is beyond beautiful. I love your protectiveness. I am like that, too. That's another reason I love you! Like Lissa, I'm not sure I can count the houses I've lived in... especially because my Dad was in the Navy and my family followed him everywhere he was stationed. You've met some awesome people and your writing is wonderful! Love you, dear friend! xo!


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
