Ten Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me
1. My dog tries to root me off the bed every night.
2. I think chocolate is one of the major food groups.
3. After going ten years without drinking soft drinks, I recently caved in and had one. (Bad author. Bad.)
4. I don’t care if I have a cell phone or not because sometimes I don’t want to talk to anyone.
5. I’m looking forward to Christmas because my family has divided into teams to see who can create the best Christmas wreath. I should be able to come up with something in a year’s time.
6. My husband surprised me with a ruby ring for our anniversary.
7. I remodeled my bathroom in a retro style, and I love it. Everyone who sees it does.
8. I like to watch Love It Or List It on HGTV.
9. When I went to Alaska, my cousin and I went on a short cruise in the Pacific. We went upstairs to the top deck, and the wind blew so hard we almost couldn’t make it back inside the boat.
10. I love junk, er, antique stores.

  2. Elise-Maria Barton says:

    Sounds like an exciting read Elaine! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I love this kind of mysterious/thriller read!

  4. Would anyone like to tell us one thing we don’t know about you?

  5. stacey dempsey says:

    thank you for hosting and my mom collects vintage chirstmas ornaments, it is actually a really neat thing to collect

    • They are so beautiful, and they’re different from the ones we have today. I have modern ornaments, but to my mind they aren’t as pretty. I especially like Rudolphs from the 1950’s.

  6. Rita Wray says:

    I like the Ten Things. My husband and I watch Love It or List It every week and we try to guess which way the couple will go.

    • The houses Hillary does are beautiful. I don’t know how she does it. I pull for her, but if it were me, I’d take the biggest one I could afford. We have five people and three big pets so we need the space.

  7. Come on, y’all. Tell us something we don’t know about you. (Yep, I said y’all. I am from the South.)

  8. Loved your 10 things. I agree with you about chocolate. I gave up drinking soda, and didn’t realize how addictive they were till then. It was a difficult thing to do.

  9. Rita Wray says:

    Something you don’t know about me is I was born in Finland.

  10. Who else will share something?

  11. SHELLEY S says:

  15. Retta Sundblad says:

    I went to church with Elaine and she makes this fabulous chocolate dessert. It is simply to die for!!
