50 Random Things

Hello friends! I have been neglecting my blog lately, and feel horrible about it. Life is getting in the way, but I need to make writing here a priority. It's an outlet for me, and I always feel better when I write frequently.

When I found out that my friend Carla over at All of Me Now was writing a "100 Things About Me" post and challenging our group of bloggers to do the same, I knew it was the kick in the pants I needed to get back in the swing of things.

I've decided to keep it to 50 things (I think you might all fall asleep if I try to do 100...I'm not that interesting!) You might already know some of these things, others might be new. But they are all random tidbits into my life. If you want to learn more about some of my local blog friends, hop on over to Carla's page and check out the links.

And now, without further ado,
