50 Random Facts About Me- Part 2

This is Part 2 in a series of posts. You can read Part 1( Facts 1-10), HERE. Hope you enjoy getting to know me a little more.

     11. My step-daughter made me a grandmother when I was only 35. (17 years ago.) O.k., don't lie. I know you're doing the math. Let me spare you the brain overload - I'm 52. And I now have 3 grand-kids!
My oldest grandbaby, born on June 17, 1996. Next to me is my son(T), - who became an uncle at age 4
   12.  My favorite Christian musician (other than my son) is Chris Tomlin. I have been to 3 of his concerts and will be going to a 4th on October 18th of this year! Can't get enough of his worship music!
  13My step-son was tragically killed in a car accident his senior year of high school on December 26, 1996.
  14My favorite books, movies, etc. are historical fiction or biographical - most notably, from the late 19th-early 20th century time period. 
 15My least favorite are scary, murder, or super-natural stories...ghosts, demons, zombies, etc.
 16. When I was 5 years old, I had half of a kidney removed - a birth defect caused it to function improperly. I have not had any problems with it since then. 
 17My two favorite foods are mac & cheese and peanut butter. I could eat them every day and never get tired of them! 
 18. In the U.S. I've traveled as far west as Colorado, south as Florida, east as North/South Carolina, and north to the U.P. in Michigan.

 19.  The only time I've been out of the U.S. was to visit relatives in Montreal, Canada several years ago.
 20.  My favorite movie of all time is "Under the Tuscan Sun" with Diane Lane (my favorite actress, of course). Of any country, I would LOVE to go to Tuscany, Italy. Maybe one day!!
