  1. My husband is a funeral director.

  16. I love Art.
  17. I was an Art major for 2 years in college. I changed majors because everyone thought I was weird- I only had one hair color and no piercings.
  18. I think girls a crazy. I work with mostly mid-late 20 something girls and they make me want to pull my hair out.

  24. If something is monogrammed I will buy it.
  25. I love my married last name; I especially love an E in monograms.

Did you watch Six Feet Under?...that show gave me a great appreciation for funeral directors!

I am the opposite - I would much rather spend money on clothes than stuff for my house! My sister is like you - house comes first. It was fun learning more about you!

Those were great! I'm like you...love the beach, hate getting in the water. I refuse to go deeper than my waist and that deep even bothers me.

Just found your blog :)

#27 cracked me up! Growing up in LA I've realized almost everyone in Hollywood/entertainment is tiny (including the men)!
