Random Facts

Hey, everyone!

Ok, so I was tagged in this sort of survey thing from Bridget@Flour&Friends.  She's cool, you should check out her blog.

I thought it would be fun (it's fun, right?) to use this opportunity to tell you more about me.

The Rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself in the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them.

*find how to make this shirt here*

Yeah, I'm not gonna do all of these rules.  If people want to be tagged and answer these questions, they can holla' at me, but I'm not going to tag anyone on my own.

Sorry, I'm a rule breaker.  That's a bonus random fact for you ;)
