Hello, My Name Is... GIVEAWAY HOP ~ Enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card!



Hello, My Name is...
GIVEAWAY HOP

As always, very huge thanks to our hop host:

............................................................................................................................................................

Hello! My name is Sarah ;)

This hop is all about ringing in the new year with some fun goodies and getting to know the bloggers you are hopping with and maybe finding someone new to follow or subscribe to. :D

So, here are five little-known/odd facts about myself:


I'm left-handed and must always be on the left-hand side of everything; on the road when driving, in a bed when sleeping, on someone's left when walking next to them, etc.
I am deathly terrified of flying insects. Not spiders, not snakes. Flying things. Butterflies. Beetles. Wasps. Anything that can buzz by my head is cause for screaming and embarrassing anyone who is with me.
I currently work at a Kroger grocery store. I am also in college (majoring in English Lit) at 30 years old. :)
I am obsessed with Xena: Warrior Princess. I own all the seasons on DVD and have watched them hundreds of times. I could recite each episode for you by heart!
If I don't have my coffee in the morning, I am literally a monster. If you see me coming in the morning without a coffee in hand... run.

Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.
