25 Things I Bet You Didn't Know About Me!

You ready?

Ever stop and wonder who exactly is the person you are reading on these blogs?

I mean there are so many of us here on Babble, and so many bloggers in the blog-o-sphere I think sometimes it is so important to stop and really let your readers get to know you more.

Over on Babble Voices Monica dished 25 things people probably don’t know about her accompanied by some great pictures and it inspired a lot of the other bloggers here on Babble to do the same.It really is a fun project.

I put together some of the facts about me. From family life, to my childhood and everything in between.

Feel free to throw out some questions below too… lets have fun with this!

You ready?
