10 things to know about me SOLC #10

10 things you should know about me

1.  I'm a procrastinator, but sometimes I surprise myself and do things on time or even early (it's rare)

2.  I never met a carbohydrate I didn't like.  Really.

3.  I really should be eating better, but it's hard.  I cannot cook.  I repeat, I cannot cook.

4.  I love to walk, ride my bike, and take yoga class.  I just don't exercise every day (I'll do it soon, see #1)

5.  I'm the outside person at our house - I take the garbage out, deal with the cars, pull the weeds.  My husband is the inside person. He can cook (see #3) up a storm!

6.  I love chocolate.  The darker the chocolate, the better!  Just leave the nuts out (you are what you eat!)

7.  I've played violin since 4th grade.  I joined a community orchestra when I turned 40, and it's a challenge (in a good way!)

8.  My birthday is September 8.  I'm a Virgo who is not organized.  I like to take care of everyone else.

9.  I hate to shop for clothes because I'm not good at creating outfits.  My favorite outfit is jeans, a hooded sweatshirt and thick socks.  My kids have threatened to put me on What Not to Wear.

10.  I have the best husband in the world (see #5), the most awesome daughters (watch this space for slices) fabulous co-workers (some even slice - Michelle and Lynn), and very fantastic friends.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Chris, good to more about you. I'm with on #3 - I don't cook and thank goodness hubby does! .

  2. Love this list! And your additional comments too. My favorite was #6 - you are what you eat! I laughed out loud for that one! (I guess I'm a nut!) Thanks for the shout out too -- from one fabulous friend to another!

  3. Now that I have read them I am glad to know these ten things about you. Creative list! I especially like how you referred back (see #10's example:))

  4. Chris- Right there with you on #1, #2, #3 and #9. And I love chocolate, no nuts (totally agree with you) but not dark. Thanks for starting my day with a laugh!

  5. Excellent list! You share your birthday with Joyce's Molly Bloom! And your zodiac sign with me (I'm September 11). I'm happy to read another Virgo how isn't super organized (and who procrastinates)!
