I’m not one to forward (or even read) chain emails, so I probably have about 8 lifetimes full of bad luck from the emails I delete. I never really get around to posting “blogger” tags either. Don’t get me wrong, I love being tagged. I greatly appreciate all of you who have felt me worthy enough to receive various “blogger-sponsored” awards and such.
After being tagged by Pure2Raw, Liz Ashlee, and Katie. I felt it was time to honor the awards and tags others have given me. So this post is for all of those who have tagged me with various requests. Thank you!
7 Random Facts:
1. I was born with birthmark on my ear, which prevents me from getting my ears pierced. I did get the other one pierced once, though, but let it close up over time. I love my special ear, though, very unique.
2. I hate clothing shopping. You have to force me to shop for clothes because I hate it. If you want to go food shopping, though, I’ll gladly come along!
4. I have one brother, one sister, and one golden retriever. Love them all very much!
5. I hate cold weather. Anything below 50* is too cold for me.
6. I usually cut my hair only once or twice a year. I’m more of a no-fuss person when it comes to hair.
7. I LOVE peanut butter, banana, and chocolate. But you already knew that.
Questions from Liz Ashlee
Liz also posted questions for me to answer, so I will!

2. Do you prefer cooking at home or eating at a restaurant? Cooking at home, definitely.
