random fun facts

I mentioned yesterday that it’s been so fun to learn a little about some of you these last few months through Friday Fun Finds… In the spirit of celebrating new friends, we thought we’d share a couple of random fun facts about us today and then open the floor for you to do the same. 🙂

So, random fun fact about us:


Green chile could be declared our family’s signature dish. Even though no one can whip up a batch of green chile like our dad, we all try. And we all LOVE it when he pulls out a crock pot, a bag of green chiles and a pork roast because we know the yumminess to follow!

I couldn’t find a picture of dad cooking… so this picture of the boys this summer will have to do. Actually, there’s another fun fact for you- the boys in our family always do weird stuff when we’re taking family pictures. So that means that every year, we end up with a picture or two like this one- haha! Classic, right?

Now it’s your turn! Will you take a minute to introduce yourself, tell us about something you love (maybe your family’s signature dish?), let us know what you’re up to this weekend, or just generally contribute to the random fun fact sharing?
