tag, i’m it (again – lol!)

Taggin’ is a popular thing right now. And I am happy to take part.

JPKittie of Won’t Go Down w/o A Fight graciously tagged me to tell 6 things about myself. So, in no particular order, here they are:

  1. I make really good lumpia/egg rolls – they are always eaten up really quick in my household
  2. I am a good mother (says my mother-in-law just now – awwww thank you)
  3. I play a mean game of Scrabble (and my 8yr old is catching up to me)
  4. I love the mountains!
  5. I would love to open up a small bakery/cafe w/ an attached book shop (but I need to expand my baking skills)
  6. I used to be a gifted violinist

It’s funny this should be brought up as I was just thinking about making some aprons of the vintage/retro kind. Take up a new hobby of sorts.
