5 Random Facts about Me

#1. Dating at our Age

I have been married to my college sweetheart since 1994.  We have a wonderful relationship and I truly love and respect him.  I found this card game this past year and have really enjoyed answering random questions on “Date-Nights!” (I will post a link once it restocks).

If your conversation has been lacking this will spice it up!  We also read THE LOVE DARE. Excellent book!!  Highly recommend it for ALL marriages!

#2. Old School Teacher

I taught Second, Third, and Fourth grade while my children were in school.  I loved being in the classroom and watching their eyes light up as the light bulb went off!
       My years spent teaching taught me many valuable lessons, mainly how to deal with parents, I mean people.
          I used to keep one of these chapsticks in my desk and use it when I knew a child was watching.  Their eyes would get as big as saucers and they’d say, “Mrs. Patton are you putting a glue stick on your lips?”  I’d indulge them just a bit and tell them YES… But seriously, I am addicted to this one.  I probably own five of them right now (bedside table, purse, makeup bag, car and my desk). It is a favorite!  My lips never peel or flake with this swivel stick.

#3 Young at Heart

In January we went on an amazing trip to Costa Rica with four other couples.

Unfortunately I tore my rotator cuff while surfing.  It was such an amazing trip with so many fun things to do and see.  When we went to Costa Rica I was in the best shape I had been in in years!  I had discovered Orange Theory and was loving working out for the first time ever!  Shortly after our return, the Pandemic hit and I lived with the pain for four months before I finally had the surgery in June 2020.  I did not only merely tear it, it was unattached.  So after 3 anchors and a lot of rehab…      I am finally back!!

#4 Ageless

I am very addicted to this face wash.  I have one in the shower and one at my sink.  I normally use it once a day, but have been known to use it twice a day.  My skin has cleared up and feels so fresh afterwards, not tight and dry.

#5. Owning My Age

Who knew you could love a $20 sound machine so much… Right?  Chris and I love sleeping with a bathroom fan on, that is until we discovered this little gem.  We love the rain sound, but there are 20 other sounds to pick from.  The best part is you can set it to turn off after a few hours or let it play all night like we do.  I really love how small it is – we can pack it in the suitcase!

 So share with me a random fact about you or your favorite product!!!!

I’d love to know!!
