11 Random Things
1. I have no clue how to exercise! Not one damn clue. I somehow talked my way out of any physical sport that was mandatory in school and I way that girl dragged to the gym by her friends who smoked cigarettes on the outside treadmill... ya pretty pathetic but its just not my thing. After Miles was born my poor body needs some TLC so this year I may need to buck up and actually do something about it. But in all honesty I'm hoping it magically disappears tomorrow.

2. Five years ago I impulsively became engaged to a man I knew for nearly two months. Seriously. Four days before the wedding he left me. Seriously!! It was really painful and confusing but if he hadn't realized that we were being crazy I would have never moved to Portland, met Steve or had our son.

3. Ever since I was a wee one I would leave my mom love notes by her door or in her purse. Even now when she visits I always make sure to sneak a note or two in her bag reminding her how great she is. Like a good mama she keeps them all.

4. Our baby boy, Miles Waylon Wolf,  is named after three righteous musicians. Miles Davis, Waylon Jennings and Howlin' Wolf.

5. I use to be really embarrassed of thrift stores. When I was in grade school I felt humiliated and poor going into a thrift shop with my mom. Shopping there symbolized not being able to afford new things which when your young means more then it really should. Im not sure when it changed for me but buying second hand is pretty much the only way I shop now and in fact thats how Ive learned to make a living. Not to mention I find it thrilling to thrift! 

6. Steve is 15 years older then me. 

7. I really want to take sewing lessons this year. I would love to be able to make things for Miles and alter my own clothes. I actually really like hand sewing but using a sewing machine would make things much easier and a lot less time consuming.

8. I love love love June Carter Cash's voice. This is one of my most favorite songs. 

9. It drives me insane how clueless Steve is on the computer. Ohh I love him dearly but Im pretty sure Miles can type faster then him. For reals. 

10. I would love for my beau to build us a green house this summer for our backyard. He has a major green thumb and its the sweetest thing to watch him tend to his plants. We have a great size yard and Id love to spend some time in it this spring to make it look as dreamy as this.

11. I'm a lousy bike rider, aliens freak me out, I get major hair envy and I don't know how to whistle.
