You're in for a real treat today, because Sherry Hart from Design Indulgence is here sharing her ABC's.  You do read her blog, don't you?  I think I laugh out loud just about every time I read her posts.  She has such a knack for writing and always seems to add some humor to it.  Love that!  Did you see her gorgeous home featured in a recent issue of Better Homes & Gardens?  She wrote about it here in case you missed it!

As a flight attendant!

Vegetables you dislike:  I do not like Lima Beans at all!
What makes you run late:  Poor planning can cause me to run late. I really do try to be on time though :)
X-rays:  Only had an Xray once with my broken toe last year.
Yummy food you make:  Since I don't really cook....I can make great popcorn the old fashioned way. I always throw in some squirts of Tabasco!

Thank you so much for being here today, Sherry!   The catamaran trip sounds amazing.  What a dream to be able to do that every year!  So jealous!  And, of course, love the photo from your flight attendant days!
