7 Random things about Myself
1. When i was 10 i spent the day with Mother Teresa

2. When i was little my neighbor friends and i started a pet sitting business called the critter crew. haha. an entrepreneur from the start!

3. Ben and my first date was to Eat N’ Park. he interrogated me the whole time. and fell in love immediately when i ordered a burger.

4. I am deathly afraid of sharks. thus not a fan of large bodies of water. even lakes are a little scary to me..even though there is no connection with sharks…i knowwww…haha.

5. When i was pregnant with sophia, a couple times i sneezed and peed my pants!! it is the most frustrating thing ever. the husband thinks it’s hilarious. (don’t you feel so close to me knowing this??? haha.)

6. Sophia’s first full sentence was “shake your butt.” 

7. I did a year of volunteer work right after high school. doing ministry work. traveled the U.S. and Rome. it was amazing and hard at the same time.

    How wonderful that you got to meet Mother Teresa! What a memory that must be.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I always love to “meet” new people through the blog world.

    Ok, the frame – actually, that one isn’t a PS action. It’s just one of the options in Windows Live Writer. I use Live Writer for all my blog posts because I get so frustrated going through Blogger. Hope this helps!
