7 Random Things

One of my blogging friends, Tracey Lau, recently tagged me in a little game called “7 Random Things”.  I don’t normally post “random” things on this blog, but I thought I could make an exception just this once.  I mean, how can I say no to a person who is so incredibly talented that she can…
take photos like this…
make desserts like these…
and set up a dessert table like this…
You see, I just couldn’t say no to a woman like that!
So here are 7 random things about me…
1.  I married my high school sweetheart, and 13 years later am still very glad I did!
2.  I’m 5’11” tall, and have been since I was 13… yes, the phrase “jolly green giant” was tossed my way a time or two.
3.  I was homeschooled until 8th grade… and I think I turned out pretty o.k.  =)
4.  I am currently training for a marathon (my first, and most likely only!).  Last week I ran 10 miles (at once!) for the first time. When I started training in January, I couldn’t run 1/2 mile.  I don’t look like a “runner”, but that may have something to do with my other hobby… baking cupcakes!  
5.  I made my own wedding dress… hey, these are supposed to be “random” so that’s what I’m doing! 
6.  My favorite indulgences (to buy)… Starbucks, ribbon, cake stands, glassybaby.
7.  I won first place (and $50.00!) at the county fair when I was 12 for a homemade Lemon Meringue Pie.  And again the next year for a Chocolate cake.
That’s it!  Seven random things.  If you enjoyed them, you can thank Tracey.  If not, well I promise I’ll get back to sweets, crafts, recipes and parties next week. 
Either way, do yourself a favor and head over to Tracey’s blog, Tracey Lau- Art & Soul, it’s full of all things sweet and beautiful.  
Have a great weekend!

    I'm like Cecilia – it just made me feel really good that I knew those things about you. I think your "followers" will enjoy the tidbits you shared!
