Happy Friday

You Are 68% Open Minded

You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.

Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.

But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.

You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.

I love these things. Sometimes they're pretty true and other times they're off the wall. This one is pretty true about me. I like to be places where there's a mix of people (you know, diversity - different races, religions,different styles,people from different countries/states/cities - you get the picture).
This is probably due (in part) to my Dad being in the Navy when I was growing up. By the time I finished third grade, I'd lived in 4 states and 5 cities. In fact, I went to 3 schools for third grade (in 2 states). One question that people ask me, that I never really know how to answer is "Where did you grow up?" or "Where are you from?". I mean, I live in PA now - but I don't consider it my hometown (even though I've lived here for almost 20 years!).
Wow. I've lived here for almost 20 years! 2 decades! That's a long time.
Did you ever do that? Not realize how much time has passed until you figure out how many years it's been? Take my best friend, Lana. We became friends in 7th or 8th grade...that was something like 22 years ago! I mean, we can't be old enough to have been friends for 22 years! Don't mind me, it must be my Soon-To-Be-A-Year-Older-Self-Reflection!
Ok...on to other (less depressing!) things. You know how I love colors, right? And yarn. Well, there's a new online yarn store. Sundara Yarn. She hand-dyes the yarn. Click here to see all the pretty yarn colors. I'll wait while you check it out.........aren't the colors AMAZING??? I think I was drooling when I first checked out that site. How do you choose a color when they all are sooooo beautiful (stunning, amazing,vibrant,wonderful)??
Check out Countrygirl to learn about the Backyard Greetings meme. It happens this Sunday.
Oh! And in case you haven't noticed, I've added a Frappr map to my blog. Take a moment to add your pin so that I can see where you are! Thank you!
MAKE it a great day!

It must have been hard moving around so much while growing up. I've only lived in 4 different places, really. Home, college, home with my first husband, and now home with Dale. I'll do the Frappr thing, too.

It is amazing when you realize how fast time goes by. I am turning 37 on the 9th and I don't know when that all happened.
