5 Things You Didn't Know About Me (I'm Sharing Because I Love You)

Hello and welcome to all of you coming over from The Modern Tulip! I'm so excited to have you here and for those of you who have been around for a while, I'm guest posting on Maeg's blog today, so you should definitely go check her out! I thought that it might be a good idea today to list some random facts about me that the majority of blogland doesn't know. That way, not only are my new BFFs going to learn something, but my old BFFs will learn something too!


1) I raced quarter midgets when I was little. These are cars that run on lawn mower engines and, when you're six, you feel like a bad ass going 35 MPH.

2) When I was racing, I had a Pink Power Ranger flame retardant suit. Yes, I was the coolest. If you're really good, maybe I'll have my parents dig out an old photo.

3) During my few year racing stint, I flipped my car on a wall and held the record for highest skid mark for a good 3 years. This statement now does not have the same meaning, so I don't share this accomplishment often.

4) I used to host karaoke. You never knew what you were going to get, but if you go in with a good attitude, it was always entertaining!

5) I love brussels sprouts. Honestly, I was that kid who hated anything green when I was younger, but now that I actually like vegetables, brussels sprouts are one of my faves! Maybe I'll give you all a recipe soon so that you can love them too!

What are some things that blogland doesn't know about you?



Have I told you guys lately how much I love you? No? Well, I do!! Without you guys, I'd be pointlessly writing stuff that no one would ever read! I wanted to give something back, so I decided that I would borrow an idea from Why Girls Are Weird (hope you don't mind, Krysten!) and giveaway a free ad space to one of you lovely readers! I just changed the names of all of my ad spaces to jewelry this weekend (because really, who doesn't want to be called a statement necklace for a month!) so this is for the Bangle Bracelet spot. I'm giving away 3 spots to you ladies because you are all my favorites!

You really REALLY need to post the pic of the Pink Power Ranger suit. That would make my day!

I hate brussel sprouts, but if you post a recipe, I may try them.
