About Me

Sketched for MeLearn alil more ABOUT ME with my TOP TEN list and brief summary of the blogs purpose

This blog is simply going to act as a GO TO location for my friends and family to check in on my lil happenings as they go on…whether it be everyday life, a new crafty project or scrapbook page, travel near or far and/or local or far away adventures. This will NOT be about work (either job) or MEN…anyone in my real life hears enough about both regularly!!

Take a look around and as always let me know what you think.
Big BIG Hugs,
Carole

Favourite MouseViennapoledancingHe'll always be my baby brotherFOUR top indulgences

  • 2 hr hot bath w/a glass of chilled white wine and a book or mag
  • An evening of laughter, food and friends
  • Couple hours of uninterrupted good TV or movie
  • An afternoon of being creatively …scrapbooking, painting, etc

THREE is the amount of times I have truly been in love, HOWEVER didn’t discover the true meaning or felt it unconditionally until June ‘07

TWO things you can always find in my refrigerator –

  • Vodka…Grey Goose and Vanilla Stoli as well as Veggies that are past their expiry…ick

ONE addt’l and totally unimportant thing you should know about me:

I truly believe that the combination of peanut butter & chocolate should be outlawed. I mean, just think about it, it’s a spreadable savoury breakfast condiment and a sweet afternoon treat … it just doesn’t make sense and will never cross my lips

Thanks so much for checking in,

Hugs, Carole
