Meet Me Monday...

1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?

I jump around a lot until I get to the one place that is comfortable enough to fall asleep. Then I don't move the rest of the night.

I must have the top cover taut & tucked in against my feet, or I just can't take it.

for the most part I am a neat tummy sleeper.

2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more ________________.

Of a free spirit that I use to be. I use to be the fly by the seat of my pants kind of a girl and then I grew up and became a total OCD planning freak show. I write lists and plan vacation down to the very second. I know one thing I made my Mom &
Hub's trip so stressful, it wasn't as fun as it could have been if I would have just chilled out a bit. In my family we call it being the camp boss! ( Type A control freak I guess)
          But even with me being a type A We still had an amazing time! 
        I love my husband & Mom so much, this memory was wonderful..... 
                             Only thing that was missing was Dad!

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?

That going to collage was not something I should have skipped. I should have been told I needed to be in collage because those that have a education can get paid more then someone that didn't,  Because they put in the hard work.

I should have gone to collage, but I decided to go to work and start making money, I thought that I would work there forever but things change and I don't work there now but because of that I am now working on being a paid freelance writer and truly doing something I love!  

4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?

I am a thrifty person and I love to go to yard sales and flea markets. The best thing I found at a Yard sale was the drapes I have in my living room, the Chair that I sit on everday, and the wonderful vintage fabric that I always seem to find.

Almost the entire living room is from Craigslist and yard sales :) Not to bad huh?

5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?

Hummmmm. Tonight I would love to have my Nana's home made Chicken noodle soup. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I love my Grandma more then she or anyone else will know. She is an amazing wonderful women and she is one of my best friends...I just love her so much.
