35 fun facts

Today I turn 35. There will not be much fanfare, it’ll be just another day. In fact, there probably won’t even be cake.

The boys have an event at karate and I have a big race coming up so there probably won’t be too much celebrating. Oh well, Spring Break is just around the corner so I’ll have a week to celebrate my entrance into this world.

There is one tradition that I wanted to keep going and that’s sharing some “fun” facts about me with all of you. So in celebration of my 35th birthday I give you 35 facts about me.
