  4. Hey! This might be more weird than interesting, but I've had numerous surgeries on my big toes! Growing up I always had ingrown toenails and they would get so bad that the only way to fix them was surgery.
    I think you already have my email :)

  163. Hi! funny fact - a year ago we adopted two dogs -- they were definately going to be outdoor dogs - somehow they have managed to slowly make their may further into the house; first the back room then the floorboard section of the house and now into the 1 carpeted room. they are certainly not allowed on the couch or bed though!

  164. Hmmm... I have a bald spot birth mark on my head. Thankfully I have a lot of hair so it's almost never visible!

  165. I love that brown/teal print. Just gorgeous.

    When I graduated high school, I made my own prom dress, with a matching purse sized to carry a plastic container so that I could steal desserts for my friends. I also made a matching backpack to carry my comfortable shoes. After the prom my friends and I went out for doughnuts and then to one friend's farm, where we taunted the goat in our fancy clothes. Best prom ever!

  172. Hey, my name's Eleanor and my interesting fact is this: Recently I cut ~6 inches off my hair (first time doing it for myself) and my own mother didn't notice. (Well, she noticed the hair in the garbage . . .) This is because my hair used to be The Longest It's Ever Been, and it was getting to the point where if I did dishes with my hair down I'd have to be careful to keep i out of the dishwater. My Love Interest noticed though, which was quite thoughtful of him.

  173. I don't know that I have a interesting personal fact.... but I do have an interesting kitten. He was rescued from a fire by the local fire department! Scrappy little fellow!

  174. A fact - perhaps interesting - I get stage fright when speaking in front of a large group. Instead of that old trick of picturing audience members naked, I picture a scrap quilt with the colorful clothing of the audience making up the patches. This way I don't see individual faces but I'm looking right at the audience!

  183. Last Easter I gave birth to my daughter (first and only so far) in the car... most people think that's pretty interesting! We were 2 minutes from the hospital. It was snowing. I I caught her and then my husband pulled over. And I had my seatbelt on the whole time. She was (and still is) perfect.

    I am 8. I am learning how to sew. I have been doing some embroidery stitches. My 6 year old brother is learning some too. I hope to be on the machine before the end of summer. There are pictures of both of us sewing together and of our projects on my blog. Further down in previous posts, I also have pictures of my family, mom, dad, 15 month brother and other brother and sister. We homeschool.

    I am having a giveaway as well at

  191. What fun facts! I too have ridden on an elephant, and been chased by a black rhino in India (luckily there was a handy tree and an extremly fearless guide who chased it away!) Thanks for the chance to win such a fab giveaway!

  192. Great fabric. Let's see... I lived in Mobile, AL during Hurricane Frederick. We had 7 trees on our house, one that came through the window and was lying on my brother's bed. We were huddled in the hall and the winds were making the walls shake that we were leaning against. We really thought the roof would be taken off and we would die. God is so good and protected us.
