How well do you know the blogger behind the blogs you read often?

We all have our favorite blogs to read, but do we really know who is behind those blogs?

The bloggers that spend hours upon hours writing content, reviewing products, pitching companies so we can offer you great giveaways along with hours we spend testing each and every product to make sure it does what it's supposed to do, and in my case, figuring out how it works since that's an obsession of mine. lol

Well, it dawned on me last night, that I rarely, if ever, put anything about myself on this blog. So, I thought I would write down 10 things about me, that y'all probably don't know. :)

1- My favorite all time book & movie, is Gone with the Wind.  I've read the book & watched the movie numerous times, beginning when I was 13.  I loved Scarlett O'Hara, but thought Melanie was a wimp, and Ashley, oh my goodness, even at 13 I thought he was definitely not an Alpha male.  But I did love Rhett, other than his having a mistress...that was just wrong. lol

2- I love to read! Although I don't have much time to read anymore, I find reading to be one of the most relaxing things ever. I love comedy, romance, especially paranormal romance, horror, and mysteries.  Some of my favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Janet Evanovich, Annie Marshall & Catherine Coulter.

3- I do have one major addiction- Cruising.  It all started when the Love Boat series first came on TV.  I was bound and determined that I would, some day, go on a cruise. I didn't get to make that dream happen until I was 41. But I'm trying to make up for it now! There is nothing more soothing to me than to feel the deck of a ship beneath my feet, the rolling of the ocean and that amazing salt breeze.  Pure heaven.

4-I have 4 Children. I had them Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl. When my 2nd daughter found out the 3rd child was going to be a boy, she burst into tears and yelled "But I don't know how to treat baby boys!" and went running from the room.  I felt so bad, she had me in tears! So... I made an impossible promise.  I told her that I promised that next time I would have a girl. And I did.  *whew-that was pure luck!* I have one grandson and 5 other 'kids' that I love like my own, along with their 2 children.

5- I am the oldest of 13 children.  I've pretty much been taking care of babies since I was 7 years old. lol But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

6- Some of my favorite hobbies are sewing, quilting, crafts, cooking and home canning.

7- I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythamotosis 24, almost 25 years ago, shortly after the birth of my 2nd child.  It finally offered me an explanation as to why I miscarried so often.  I ended up having 9 miscarriages through the years.

8- I love people, and I tend to get emotionally attached to them, especially the elderly. If I were rich, I would do my best to help each and every person that I could.

9- I love Dogs and Horses. Cats are ok too, but I've always wanted a Dolphin. lol.. I was hooked on the show, Flipper, as a little girl.

10- My birthday is on the 4th of July.  Every birthday cake I can remember from childhood, either had a flag on it or fireworks. :)

Well, there you have it. I love doing reviews, and I only recommend the products that I believe are good products.  If I get a product for review, that does not hold up to my standards, I will not write about it, but I do contact the company and tell them why, and sometimes tell them what could be improved, so that is why you never see bad reviews here.
Thank all of y'all for reading my blog! You really don't realize how much we bloggers appreciate our readers, and that's why we try to offer you great prizes now and then on our giveaways.

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!
