Jen tagged me to tell you all 5 things you don’t know about me.
1. I’ve never been outside of the United States. Not even to Hawaii or Alaska. Someday I would love to visit faraway places, though. I just haven’t had the means yet.

2. In 5th grade I won a Halloween costume contest. I went as Dolly Parton. My mom had a wig like hers for some reason, so I wore that, bright red lipstick, and I super-stuffed a bra.

3. November 2001 my apartment burned. Everyone made it out safely. However, many plastic toys and beanie babies in my kids’ room did not survive the fire. (Started in the kids room by a halogen lamp). Actually, nothing in their room survived. Luckily the complex had a unit exactly like ours available for us to move into, and the Red Cross was wonderful. We also got lots of help from some of the kids’ classmates, donating clothes and dishes and stuff. It was a horrible thing to happen, but it also was one of those things that restores your faith in humanity.

4. I do not know a single one of my blogging friends in real life.

5. One of my hobbies is making soap. Not the melt and pour stuff you get at the craft store, either. I use oils and lye and measurements… I feel like a mad scientist… it’s cool. I use it myself and I give it as gifts sometimes. I’ve thought about selling it, but I feel like it might not be fun anymore if I did that.
I’m not sure I can tag anyone that hasn’t already been tagged by this one… but, by all means do it if you so desire. I love finding out new things about people!

    I think you should post how to make this soap – my mom used to have homemade soap with lye in it – and worked awesome on getting grass stains out of clothes…
