Lets play a get to know you game! (Since we seem to have so many new members!)

Just tell us something that we wouldnt know about you otherwise!

I'll start....

If you really knew me, you'd know that I love makeup and probably have more than at least a few people put together! (I wanted to be a makeup artist for most of my life!)

If you really knew me, you'd know that I love to read and will sit down and read a book until it's finished....my most recent was this past weekend, Mitch Alboms "have a little faith", finished it in 5 hours.

If you really knew me, you would know I'm a go getter and I don't do a 1/2 crappy job. When I want something I put my mind to it and I go full force until I have it accomplished. I love working my 10 hour days and I only dread it for 5 minutes when the alarm goes off at 6am. I'm a positive person and only surround myself with positive people.

If you knew me, you would know that I am a mineral makeup lover (Indie Companies only). I'm an addict, it's not even funny how much I have ! Oh and if you really knew me, you'd know I love Sushi and girly drinks!

If you really knew me, you'd know that DH and I moved in together after only being together for a month! We knew it was gonna make us, or break us...and it was the BEST decision ever!

If you really knew me, you'd know that I make plans and I always follow through. Whether it was school, or learning my profession, or creating a freelance company, or moving across the country twice. I make it happen. My husband is the same. Some plans take a long time to come about, and that's how I see TTC.

If you really knew me...you'd know that I am a PLANNER. Spontaneity and I do not get along well...I like making a plan and following through. This made TTC ridiculously hard for me, because I dont' like when things don't work out according to my well-thought-out plans!

If you really knew me you would know I am super organized and pay very close attention to detail. I think some of my employees hate it because i catch them doing stuff wrong all the time when others dont.

If you really knew me, you'd know that all I want is to make the people around me happy.

I bend over backwards for my friends, family, and especially my DH...because I just want the people I love to know that I appreciate them just as they are

If you really knew me, you would know that I will do just about anything for a laugh. I love making a fool of myself, being silly, and having a good time. You would also know that I am just about as open and honest as they come. I don't really have secrets and open up fairly easily.
