MckLinky Blog Hop Three Things you Don't Know about me

Three things you may not know about me...

1. I was a cheerleader in High School that married her High School Football Coach!
Not as scandalous as it sounds and it has last 37 years. I LOVE football and loved being a football coaches wife for 30 years. I never missed one game. That will be a post someday.

2. People have been so interested in my job..."Holiday Decorator", which in plain terms means I decorate a lot of Christmas Trees. It started with one house and 15 years later my team decorates 60 homes from November 1st through mid December. I am hoping to share a lot of "tree knowledge" in the fall and even a few tricks.

3. I do not COOK!!!! Hate it...Fortunately my husband is a great cook, we love The Dinner Station where you pick up prepared meals, and we LOVE to EAT OUT.

Holiday Decorator sounds like fun, but then I have decorated my share of trees at Christmas time and it is more work than fun sometimes. Say, how did you find yourself in such a career? And, would you be intersted/available for guest blogging at Christmas time?

Inksstillwet said...

What a fun job!! I can’t wait to see your work and hear your tips. I don’t cook either and love that my husband doesn’t mind doing the cooking. I guess I’ll have to pass some other heritage down to my children because the poor things won’t get a recipe file from me on their wedding day.

Susie said...

Well that was interesting about you. I wish my hubbie liked to cook. Oh well, at least he doesn't mind cleaning the kitchen when I'm thru.

TammyIsBlessed said...

What fun facts! Cute story about you and your dh.

I love eating out too, but try not to do it too often.

DH and I are going out for one night for our anniversary on Thursday, so we'll get to eat out a few times this week - yay! :)

Omah's Helping Hands said...

No big deal about marrying your coach. The important thing is you two are obviously compatible and very happy together.
It sounds like you have an exciting job! How cool.
How wonderful that you don't like to cook but your husband does. That works out great. Too bad it's not that way for others as well. ;) Thanks for sharing!

Marsha said...

Holiday Tree Decorator...hopefully you'll have some great tips later that will inspire me. Now that my kids are all grown and on their own, I've lost my interest in all that. I just do what I can do to get by. Actually, it's the UNdecorating I hate, so I just go with the bare minimum. HELP ME, PLEASE!

Also, I'm so glad your newest grandbaby is doing so well. There were some scary moments there a little while back if I recall.

Blessings.
