Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes my peeps, today is my 40th birthday!!! Not a clue what we will be doing to celebrate but whatever it is I'm sure it'll be tons of fun! In honor of this major milestone in my life today's post is

40 Random Things!

1. My favorite color has always been blue

2. I love COACH purses!

3. I have at least a touch of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)! I detest clutter and am happiest when everything is in it's place

4. I love dogs...big ones, little ones, every shape size and color

5. I do not eat "ugly" food! Chicken wings and brussle sprouts are a total NO!

6. One of my favorite things is buying gifts for people. It doesn't even have to be a holiday. If I am out and about and see something that reminds me of someone, I'll get it and mail it to them with a card

7. Not a dancer - trust me on that!

8. My camera is always in my purse cause I love to take pictures

9. When driving, my cell is always in my pocket. Some freaky fear about running out of the road and not being able to reach it
