I've been tagged by Australian Friend, Anastasia to entertain you with 7 Random Facts About Me.
1. I have way too many hobbies and interests including: scrapbooking, paper arts, reading, genealogy, miniatures, needlepoint, crosstitch, photography, collecting vintage items, jewelry making, decorating, writing, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and traveling.

2. I put myself through college and graduated in 3.5 years. While I was there I was never without a job, was a member of a sorority and was active in campus positions. I thought college was a total blast.

3. I moved to the Phoenix area from Iowa right out of college, relocated to Oro Valley (Tucson) and back to Phoenix three years ago.

4. I planned my own wedding filling countless planners and notebooks, attending several bridal fairs and salons and collecting every bridal magazine and book that I could get my hands on. My plan was to become a wedding planner. However after we were married and having been responsible for my entire wedding, I decided not to pursue such a stressful career.

5. I took parenting classes from the time my oldest was 1 and until he was 11 always learning invaluable lessons.

6. I was on the gymnastics team specializing in the uneven bars in high school.

7. I was somewhat of a travel writer before children, writing for a relocation company. It definitely put the travel bug in me and inspired me to plan adventurous family trips.

This was interesting and fun to read! I have so many hobbies and interests too. I'm sometimes overwhelmed by them and have to take a little time to really think about what things to put my efforts into. If only there were more hours in the day!
