Lauren tagged me earlier this month, so here I am with 11 things about me and answering Lauren's questions.
11 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME:
1. I have to have coffee in the morning.
2. In 3+ years of knowing my husband, The Hunger Games is the first book I have read completely ((I'm so bad about finishing books)).

5. I like listening to talk radio in the car in the morning on my way to work.

7. I only cook at home about 20% of the time, my husband is the cook in our house.
8. If there's one type of clothing you can never own too many of it's jackets. I love blazers, denim jackets, rain coats, etc.
