Now...7 random completely random pieces of information about me...this is EVEN HARDER!!!

1.  I've never met ANYONE EVER with the same name as my middle name...I've heard variations...but NOT ONE PERSON with my middle name!
2.  I LOVE TO READ...and, once I get hooked, I can stay up all night just to read the complete book.  
3.  My husband and I honeymooned in Jackson Hole, WY...and, it has an airport kind of like the set of "Wings" walk out on the tarmac to the airplanes.  Anyway, they lost our luggage flying, we didn't have any luggage except our carry ons for the first night of our honeymoon.  Oh yeah, I can't ski well either...but, it is GORGEOUS!  Would go back in a heartbeat!!
4.  I have studied three different areas of studies since high school...BSW in Social Work, Graduate in Education, and Paralegal Certificate.  Yes, I enjoy all three!!  
5.  My dad raised cows (I'm a TN gal)...and, when I was in the fourth grade...I purchased a female cow (heifer) from him to "invest" and learn the value of money and saving.  I used the money from my cow and sale of her calves each year to purchase my first car...a Chevrolet Cavalier.  Oh yeah...I paid him to take care of the calf...I wasn't and am not a "farm girl" at all!
6.  I purchased and lived in my own home for 4 years prior to getting married to my husband.  When we got engaged...I decided to sell it, and sold it WITHOUT A REALTOR and while we were on a vacation in New Mexico!  I doubt that would happen in this real estate climate...but, it was "kind of" awesome!
7.  I've never broken any of my bones...but, when I was 5 years old...I cut my toe to the bone.  Still one of my most vivid childhood memories, and the scar to show it!

Well...there they are VERY RANDOM pieces of info that I know you feel so blessed to now know about me! :)  So...there you have go and visit these wonderful blogs and show them some love.  Thank you Debbie for passing the award onto me.  I truly appreciate it!
