Getting to Know (1): Random Blogger Facts

First off, I don't have a button for this as I still don't know how to do that...so if anyone knows of someone (or can do it themselves) that can make a cute button for this new feature, that would be awesome. Plus, I have some other features that I said I would do or have done in the past and I promise I'm going to try and bring those back more - break things up between all the reviews, etc.

Getting to Know or GTK depending on how much room you want to give the title.

The idea behind Getting to Know is to share at least one fact about yourself once a week (or hopefully once a week!) I know a lot of people have round up type posts on Saturday or Sunday, so you can add this there if you like.

I think it's fun to get to know the blogger behind the blog, so feel free to share whatever you wish! It doesn't have to be anything terribly personal. The fact can be something from your childhood, it can be something that pertains to your previous week, whatever! I hope my facts will give you some idea of what to go with. If you decide to take part in this, please let me know and feel free to leave a link in the comments!


Getting to Know (GTK) Number 1: When I was younger, I used to read some of the Harry Potter books out loud to my dad. He wanted to read them but never really read much, so I decided to read them aloud as I had already read and loved them. If he fell asleep, I'd go back to whatever he remembered and continue on! We got through about two or three of them, I believe.

YASSS! I love this - so cute. I've already told my nephew that once he learns to read, he'll be in charge of bedtime stories {he's going to read to me!}.

What an awesome way to bond with your dad as a kid. I am so looking forward to sharing Harry Potter with my two kids in a couple of years.

What an awesome feature Lauren and a great expansion on Ask Me Anything. Let me know what you need made, more than happy to help out <3 such a beautiful memory. My mum passed on her love of books to me and I even remember being only a toddler and being at the library with her borrowing Spot books. Those childhood memories are still so vivid. Thanks for sharing Lauren and looking forward to the next instalment <3
