I’m playing an old school blogging game called 5 things! I’m sharing some interesting and little-known facts about my life in this post today

I am popping in today to share a fun post: 5 Things about me! Lynda at Fitness Mom Wine Country tagged me to participate in an old-school blogging game just for fun. So, if you want to learn a little bit more about me, keep reading 😉

5 Random Facts about Me:

  1. I hate horror anything (movies, music, etc.). Real life can be scary as it is, why add to it by filling your mind with depressing stuff?
  2. I love fairy tales and mythical stories (hence my love of LOTR)
  3. We don’t have cable (just NetFlix), so I don’t know too much about the newest TV shows. But in this case, I am perfectly okay with being clueless 😉
  4. I was home-schooled for most of my school years. Homeschooling works (I graduated college with a 4.0), but it’s difficult and isn’t for everyone. Our 2 kids are in public school, but we might try homeschooling when they get a bit older
  5. I went to modeling school when I was a teenager and was in a beauty pageant a few years ago. I am not very confident on stage, and I was pretty awkward, so it wasn’t a very good fit for me.

    • If you didn’t have cable I would be worried…your blog would be called Gigi Eats “Celeries” instead, haha! My husband does miss live hockey games in the winter, though. Oh and new episodes of Psych 😉
