Fifty Fun Facts

Why hello y’all! I don’t know about where you are, but it’s currently raining here in Houston, TX on this dreary Tuesday morning. I really think that forget how to drive when water begins to fall from the sky. It took me several extra minutes to get to work even though I left 5 minutes earlier than yesterday! Oh well, moving right along. Today I thought it would be fun to share 50 super fun and completely random facts about yours truly. I personally love reading these kinds of posts on other blogs, so I thought that y’all may enjoy it here.
