  • I love when my house is very clean, so I'm constantly cleaning.
  • I think cleaning is theraputic.
  • Nothing makes me happier than a clean car, inside and out.
  • My grandmother gave me her China when I got married. I love it so much, sometimes I just sit and look at it all. 
  • If you turn my TV on, there is a 90% chance it's on E!. The other 10% is Bravo.

  • Best Valentine’s Day gift ever? My sister had a guy write a song for her this year. It's a great song too. The most romantic I've ever received was an orchid from my husband. The BEST gift? He bought me a car wash package this year. He knows me so well!

Thanks for the tag, doll. I will try to get to it soon. I've been very lazy with the blog lately! :)

Say, I couldn't live without my iPhone either. Obsessed is putting it mildly! He he...

I had to say "hi" because 1) I'm on a quest to find people that "still blog" and 2) because I almost could have written those 11 things...except the part about the Kennedys, but I still have a small obsession. Anyway, hello :)
