Geez, you guys make this look easy.1. I've been married 7 years. I keep telling everyone 8 because we've been together 8 years and I forgot. Ooops. Close enough, right?2. I was born in Missouri, but I spent the first five years of my life in Oklahoma. We moved back to MO right before I started kindergarten.3. I used to have a terrible Okie accent as a result. When I get really tired or relaxed, it comes back.4. I just bought socks for my dog. I don't really know why, except they were on clearance.5. I'm getting ready to start the 4th book in my series. Woohoo!
The socks for your dog are too funny, Allison. :)
