My guilty pleasures when I fly are The Economist and US Weekly. When skimming through US Weekly this past trip, I found myself reading "25 things you did not know about me" and I thought it was a fun idea for a blog post. I always enjoy learning fun facts about people, things you expect and others that you would have never guessed. Here are 25 Things You May or May not know about me:
1. I have lived in 5 cities and 3 different states in the 10 years since I left home for college.
2. My Daddy and I have the same initials.
3. I read Pride & Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird every year. I am starting to collect used hard cover editions of the books.
4. If I could live anywhere, it would be in a cottage on the lake.
5. I do not believe there is much that a bubble bath and glass of Cabernet cannot fix.
6. My cats are named Abbey after Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and Atticus after To Kill A Mockingbird.

22. I buy little cocktail napkins and decorative muffin liners all the time.
23. I got a referral in 5th grade for saying "turd". When the principal called my Daddy, he said next time I would just say "s**t". My referral got tore up and dismissed from my record.
24. I am named after the little girl my mother babysat when she was a teenager.
25. I accidentally stole a handi-snack from the grocery store when I was little. My Momma made me go into the store to admit what I had done and pay for it.
