TMI Tag: Getting to know me

I saw a couple of bloggers doing TMI tag posts and I thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know me, seeing as I am new to the blogging world.

  1. Great post! Loved getting to know you a bit better XXX

    1. Thank you for commenting, Charlene! I quite enjoyed posting it. :) xxx

  2. Loved learning more about you :-)

    I turn 29 in September and I'm excited! 28 is such a bleh age for me. I don't like the number (yes that should count as a reason lol!) and my actually birthday was crappy. Spent most of the day in tears (work related) and since then its been nothing but stress (again all work related). I'm hoping 29 will be better (and yes I do like the look of the number!)

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that! I have to admit, my first month of being 29 was a bit...weird, but I'm sure it'll pick up! I'm thinking you can't have two bad years in a row, so here's hoping 29 will be a spectacular year for us both! :) Thanks for stopping by, Kate! xx

  3. Agree 100% with your one true paring. Love Boston Legal!

    1. Aren't they just perfect together? :) Thanks for stopping by, Anye!
