Things you Didn't know about Me!

I thought I would share a little bit more about me today with everyone! I’ve been reading about some of my other blog friends this morning and they have inspired me to write this post, so here goes.

Thanks! I love to wrap those presents girl! My whole family brings theirs to me, and then they all ague over who's going to wrap mine! LOL I don't know it's so much that I like all the wrapping, but the fact that I can lock myself in a room with nothing but presents and wrapping paper!!
