11 Random Facts about me!
1.  I'm a total spreadsheet a'holic! I have one for everything...color coded.
2.  To go along with #1, I am very structured, organized and am a bit ocd about a clean house. Now, that does not mean that my house is always spotless. I do have 3 kids and a dog! I just get very anxious when it is not up to mine and my husbands standards. 
3.  I am married to an IT guy and it does come in handy!
4.  My ideal work/life balance would be to work part time so that I could spend quality time with my kids. I currently work 4 - 10 hour days. The days are long and the evenings always feel rushed. 
5. I love cooking in the crock pot. The house smells amazing and dinner is ready when I am done working. Win, win!
6.  My favorite place is the beach but I do not like to swim in the ocean.
7.  Along with #6, I would love to go to Hawaii. This is Dom's dream vacation too, he already asks when we can go.
8.  My favorite team is the Steelers! This year is not looking good for them during the preseason. Lets hope it changes before the first game!
9.  I have already shrunk an inch and half since high school. I blame my back surgery!
10.  We have a plan on what needs done in this house to list it in 5 or so years. Our dream would be to build but all the plans have such small amounts of land. We keep going back and forth at adding on here compared to buying a new house.
11.  I am very afraid of heights.
