65 Followers, 65 Facts

I have a really hard time writing about myself. You'd think it would be easy since I'm probably the person that knows me the best, but it stumps me every time.

Since I really started blogging regularly and trying to grow my little blog, I've got a lot of new followers who don't know me from Eve. And because I'm still working on a super duper "about me" page, in honor of my 65 followers, here are 65 facts about me. (Don't worry there are also some photos to keep you interested)

  1. I too can't get rid of my baby belly. Its the only pouchy part of me. I also ALWAYS wear a toe ring. On my left foot. For some reason the one on the right foot really hurt when I ran. I also love swimming-I do it on the days I don't run. And I refuse to watch horror movies. Why?

    Oh yeah...and you won my giveaway yesterday, but I will email you, and get your info to my ladies too.=)

  2. I love this list! I love getting to know fellow bloggers! A lot of these describe me too...but I am a huge cry baby when it comes to TV shows and movies!
