If you're hopping in via the blog Hop, welcome, come on in. The last 2 Blog Hops have been tons of fun. It's such a great way to meet new people and connect with some fantastic blogs that I may never have run or hopped into. So this weeks theme is: 3 things you didn't know about me. So without further ado:
1. I have a beauty mark in my eye. Yes, it's true. I have a small brown dot in the iris part of my left eye. Since my eyes happen to be light blue, I guess it's very noticeable. I get told all of the time, "you know, you have a dot in your eye." As if they are telling me something I do not know.
2. I saw a beached whale in Cape Cod Massachusetts. My husband and I stayed at an old bed and breakfast for a weekend getaway when we were first married. We rented bikes and went for a bike ride along the trails near the ocean. When we rode past it the first time, the whale was crashing in the waves...poor guy was hurt bad. By the time we returned from our bike ride, the whale was way up on the beach and a whole crew was out taking measurements and pictures. I was very upset for the rest of our weekend about this big guy...poor whale. I love the ocean and often wonder what sorts of other creatures live way beneath the water.
3. On my wedding day, the makeup artist got pink lipstick down the front of my dress. I had to be to the church within an hour. The makeup artist wanted to put white makeup on the dress to cover the lipstick! Ummmm NO. We called the Bridal shop where we bought the dress and they wanted us to come to their shop so they could sew applique over the stain. Ummmm No. My dad ran up the stairs with a bottle of Goo Gone (you know that yellow stuff...sort of smells like lemons) and said "the bottle says it removes lipstick." My mom washed my dress with the Goo Gone....and my aunt Doris stood with a blow dryer to dry is right away so it wouldn't leave a water mark. It was a miracle. It all came out and you would never have known there was lipstick on my dress. I was 45 minutes late for church and the priest at church joked with my husband that I wasn't going to show up. I guess he was relieved when I did and the rest of the day and night was magical.
So there you have it...3 things you didn't know about me and now you do. Thanks for stopping in, now I can't wait to read all about you!
