Thanks Melissa for this fun post about random things about me... I had to really think about them.... If things like this make you bored you can stop reading now.

1. I am the most low-maintenance-high-mantenance girl ever. I love make-up, hair, and clothes. I just like it on others.
2. I love Tupperware, and totes... BECAUSE---
3. I love to organize things.. I like rows, stacks, bundles, and clean lines.
4. I have to have a tidy house.. I don't expect it of anyone else, just me..
5. I am really bad at laundry, I can do it, I just don't like to. I am infamous for leaving wet laundry in the washer until it smells all mildew-y.. But, I have learned that a 1/2 cup of white vinegar takes care of that.
6. I love salty foods... saltine crackers(I have loved these since HS I can eat the whole package), cucumbers in vinegar, edamame(sp?), salt on my grapefruit, green apples, rhubarb, My family makes a drink called "Lemon on the Rocks" which is basically lemon, salt, water and ice.... MMMMMMMM
7. I love the romantic style of decor, antiques and roses... but because there is so much pink and flowers I have to limit it to Ry's room...
8. I don't care for debate.. I just have an opinion that I don't care if no one agrees with; it's mine. I usually educate myself to make an informed decision on how I believe and that is that....(no I am not stubborn)
9. I really love to have my veggie garden, although it is really hard to have with kids... No time for weeding.
10. I am a shower diva, I like to sing. Just not in public....

I could only think of a few... but I am full of quirks... so...... Lets hear this from, Angie N., Likes Chocolate, Little Collection, Mindy F., Andrea(s) (all of you!!!!!)

it is comforting to hear that the lady with the always super clean home doesn't enjoy laundry!

I will confess to a nearly overwhelming urge to open your cabinets when I'm there getting my hair done. I have marveled at how it is even possible for ANYONE to have ZERO clutter like you do. So, spill it. If I DID open a cupboard or closet, would I be met with some clutter or (the more likely scenario) a whole bunch of Rubbermaid totes?

Seriously. Your powers of organization are amazing. AND with kids.

To Binders ... if you open her cupboards or closets, they are as organized as the rest of the house!! It just makes me so intimidated, because she knows that it is definately not that way at my house!!

Wanna come organize my house? Clutter spills out all over the place! Glad you don't it expect it of everyone. You can come visit my cluttered home anytime! :)

Fun to see all these random facts about you....and surprised to see my name on the tag list. Will have to do this soon!

Hooray for the primary program too! Can I tell you my favorite moment from ours? In one of the kids talks he shared that when he got baptized he felt "feliz y un poco mojado". (Happy and a little wet!) I am sure you are great! Good luck to Gator in nursery and you in the new calling.
