I keep running across these 100 things about me lists when looking around blog land. So many times, in fact, that it made me want to do it too. So here it goes.
1. I am 5’10″ tall.

3. I want to go to New York for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade…and stay over for New Year’s Eve.
4. I hate to fly. Well really take off, the rest isn’t so bad…just the take off part.

11. I love all the rest of the things at Christmas time too. Candy canes, cookies, songs, mistletoe, the smells…all of it.
12. I love to hug people. I try to avoid hugging clear non-hugging type people, but sometimes I can’t help it and do it anyway. I am not sorry.

23. Yes, they were all planned.
24. I love Pumpkin Bagels from Noah’s in the fall….and pumpkin donuts from Krispy Kreme and Pumpkin Spice Yankee Candles. Perhaps, I just like pumpkin.

26. I love people.
27. I love my house full of people.
