Random Facts

Back in January (I KNOW!!!) the most lovely Brooklyn from Hoot Knows nominated me for the Liebster Award.  There are three parts to this award. The first part asks for me to share eleven facts about myself; the second part asks me to answer questions provided by Brooklyn that are listed below; and for the third part I am supposed to nominate eleven people who have blogs that match a certain criteria.  

so here we go...

Part 1:

11 Facts. 

  • I have a fear of velvet. It makes me cringe like nothing else. I can't tolerate it. If I am even around it, I feel like I am suffocating. For this reason I do not like peaches.
  • I am a concert junkie. I love love love music. Especially live music. 
  • I would rather travel the world than have material possessions. 
  • I am my biggest enemy. I have often been described as extremely confident, but in reality, I am not. 
  • I teach Sunday School to little kids. I love every minute of it. I'm not even kidding folks. Before teaching Sunday School to little kids, I never really liked being around children.
  • I am fascinated with birth. It scares the living heck out of me.
  • If you ever need to borrow a tube of red lipstick, I am your girl. I counted ten tubes the other day.
  • I love sushi. 
  • Owls have a special place in my heart. I loved them before they became super trendy. Like back in 2006.  
  • I recently took a DNA test that revealed to me that I am 25% Italian. I've always described myself as half Middle Eastern. In reality, I am only 8% Middle Eastern. 
  • Florence, Italy is my favorite place in the whole world. I died and went to heaven the first time I visited. It is magical beyond description.
