A little about yours truly

Do you want to know about me and some things that I like?  Really, you do?  Oh yay!

I like natural light.  When I walk in a room with a lot of windows and "sunny" colors it makes me feel good. When I wake up in the morning one of the first things I like to do is open the blinds or curtains and let the light in the house.

Blue is my favorite color, Red is my second favorite color.  Yellow reminds me of my Grandma because she had this breakfast nook in her house that was so bright and yellow.  I remember having wonderful meals in there with her and my Grandpa.  Love them!

Every time I get in the shower lately I think "Yes to Carrots!"  Isn't that silly? The reason I think that is because I want to try this new product line called "Yes to Carrots." When I am done with my current shampoo and body wash I am going to give some of their products a try.  I am excited because they are natural (FOR REAL - no parabens, petroleum, etc and they are full of minerals) and most of their products are rated 1 or 2 on the Skin Deep website. It is hard to find products that work, for a decent price and are good for your skin and body. I hope these do the trick.

I love to cook and bake.  When I was a young teen I started asking for kitchen stuff for holidays and birthdays.  It am so glad I did because a lot of the things that I received I still use to this day. My favorite kitchen utensils that I would be lost without are my J.A. Henckels knives (received as a wedding gift) and my cutting board that my Dad made for me. 

I just made these Gluten Free Ginger cookies today (used my own GF flour though.) They are slightly chewy no crunchiness here. Just the way I like them.

Other things on my baking list this week are ChexMuddy buddies (well you dont really bake these), GF lemon Bars, GF Peanut Butter Kiss cookies, and GF Peanut Butter Cup cookies (we like peanut butter around here!)

My favorite kind of food is Mexican.  My second favorite is Thai.

My hair was white- blonde when I was young.  As I have gotten older it has gotten darker and darker. Now they made me put "sandy" on my license.  I have almost always worn it long.  I wish I knew more ways to do my hair though.

I have always wanted to visit Italy and intend to do so some day.  My two favorite countries I have been to are Switzerland and Austria.  They are breathtaking.

Hope your having a wonderful week before Christmas!
