Random facts about me

I wasn't really inspired today to do a decorating post
I thought instead, since I have several new 
followers, I would share a few random facts about me. 
I always enjoy reading these on other blogs and getting to know 
fellow bloggers better. 
I hope this helps you get to know me a bit better
1) I love Coffee and can be a bit of a coffee snob. 
   I like it rich and robust.
    I love a good Starbucks Iced americano with white chocolate 
   (yes I know, lots of calories )
   My daughters all joke that my grandchildren will 
    call me "grandma coffee"
2)  When I was younger (and thinner) I was often told I looked
     like Barbara Streisand 
     (I think its the nose and the blue eyes)
3) I come across very together and confident but many times inside 
    I am just the opposite
4) I cry easy. Hallmark card commercials get me every time. 
    I cry at sappy love story movies, 
    I cry when someone gets engaged,
    I cry when I am happy and words just wont do. etc
5) I like a clean house but don't always make my bed 
 ( silly cuz I always like it better when I do)

6) I love planning events such as weddings, fundraising dinners etc.

7) I have known my hubby since 6th grade (some of you may know this) 
   We are just about to celebrate 29 years of marriage

8) I love giving gifts(getting them too)  and I love wrapping presents. 
I like making the package as beautiful outside as it is on the inside.

9) I love to laugh and often get the giggles at inappropriate times. 
I remember my son in law telling my daughter " your mom thinks everything is funny"
 I guess I just enjoy life and try to find something everyday to laugh about : )))

10) I love to sing but was not blessed with a great voice. 
I like singing along with the radio when I am in my car and no one else can hear me. 
(make a joyful noise : ))

11) I am an American Idol fan and have watched every season although this year
 has not been my favorite.

12) I like to be in control and in charge. I guess I like that others think I have it all together, 
but trust me I really don't. It's a hard one because I am very open 
so people who know me well, know I do not have it all together (I am human after all)

13)  I am a sinner saved by grace. I know that God is the one in control and 
in charge of me and my life
So there you have it 13 random tidbits about me.

Feel free to share some random thought about yourselves too
