**Random Facts About Moi**

1.  I stay up way too late at night. Usually facespacin and mybookin (that's what the hubs calls it) jk in all reality more like stalking other bloggers pages! I am an addict. I could read all night.

2. I enjoy watching the Food Network. Unique Eats, Andrew Zimmerman and Rachel Ray are among my faves!

3. I am extremely forgetful. I have to save everything in my phone on my calendar for timed reminders or this girl will lose her head.

4. Cheese is a huge favorite for me, all cheese. Anything with cheese just makes my world happy.

5.  I am addicted to Starbucks. Seriously. If I could drink Grande Carmel Brulee Lattes all day I would.

6. I rely on the acceptance of others to fulfill my happiness. I know this way of thinking isn't good but I can't help it.

7. I should of been a race car driver. I drive way too fast. Break at the last minute and I tend to yell at people like they can hear me. Road rage is a flaw of mine.
8. I hardly ever eat breakfast. I hate eggs and everything else is just too greasy for me in the morning.

9.  I wish I would have been brave enough to tryout for the Pacemates dance squad. I regret not having the confidence.
10.  I clean constantly. I will go off the deep end if my house isn't at least picked up. I tend to battle it out with hubs, we do not see eye to eye on this subject.

11.  I love fruit. I could eat it for the rest of my life and be very very content.
