Just got back from a cruise for my mom's 60th birthday. 🛳💕🎈We had a total blast sailing to Mexico and back. Which was just enough time to be reminded of all my quirks, sayings, & habits as a kid. 😂 Family trips are the best, right?! 🙂 So, here’s 3 quirky things for today’s #fridayintroductions 01. I’m a worry wart 🙈 02. I lived at HOME in college (#totalpartygirl)💃🏼03. I’m clumsy as all get out in the kitchen because apparently I’m not patient & I move too fast = spills everywhere. 😜 Your turn. What are 3 quirky things about YOU?!? 😘(pc: @kathleengeiberger)
