7 things about me you probably don't know...

I rarely share off-topic facts about myself but I always love looking at these lists from blogs I read regularly so when Jane from Maiden Jane (who's general craftiness and amazing sewing skills I admire greatly) gave me these awards I thought I'd take the opportuniy to make one of
these lists.

1. Recently my hubby and I changed the way we eat entirely. All organic, as local as possible and no more factory farm meat (that was a big one). If you want to know why... all you have to do is watch the movie Food Inc. We've enjoyed this change more than we ever could have realized when we started.

2. I love MTV, Bravo, and Food Network reality shows. It's my favorite trashy T.V.

3. Less than six people who know me in real life also know I have a blog.

4. I love Halloween but hate horror movies.

5. My favorite color is teal. Close to Pantone number 3258c

6. I've never been camping (unless you count my backyard)- but want to try it sometime.

7. Starting with my first job in college, if I picked one or two words for each job and assemble them into a mad libs style sentence this would be it.

Overnight dinosaur party selling merchandise by invitation that's voluntarily recycled, then designed and marketed to famous writers.

Someday maybe I'll tell you what all these jobs were. That could be seven things all on it's own.

Thanks Jane for these awards!


  1. I LOVE this post! Say Food Inc and know what you are talking about, truely an eye opener.

    I go "camping," it gets quotation marks because we go in a cabin that is air conditioned, has a bathroom and has television. It is in the woods and has a lake though. That is how you should try it :)

    I like the mad lib work experience, and hope to someday hear about the overnight dinosaur party.

  2. Thanks Nelly! You're version of camping sounds perfect

    : )

    One day, maybe soon I think, I'll tell you guys about overnight dinosaur parties.

  3. So funny Meg! I love this post! Although, you are still a mystery! Don't you feel like you have an entirely secret blog life? Few in my family know I have a blog - let alone knows what a blog is! Camping? Don't do it! LOL. I love when my family backyard camps - then I get the bed to myself! We went camping once as a youngster and it was a nightmare for my parents. We haven't done much beyond backyard, but we did camp out several times on the beach at my brother's house. Beautiful setting, I just can't relax and sleep until I feel secure - which means no tweens running around trying to do bad things to our tent! Good for you on the food! And I'd love to know about your jobs someday!

    Thanks for the sweet compliment and have a great wkd!

    PS, I'm not a huge fan of horror films. I love good suspense - those movies don't seem to be made anymore.

  4. Haha, Jane.

    I do sort of feel like I have a secret blog life, which can be problematic or liberating depending on the circumstances. I didn't intend to have a secret blog, it just sort of happened... but that's another story for another time.

    I'm not sure I'd like camping either... but I'd like to give it a try at least once. Camping at the beach sounds wonderful!

    I really like a good suspense movie too and you're right those don't seem to be made much anymore. But l guess everything goes around- so maybe soon they'll start making them again.

    Thank you for doing me the compliment of giving me an award and featuring one of my MegaSpooky projects on your blog today!
