Ok, so technically this isn’t a “new” blog, per se, BUT I will be writing in it now so that’s cool, right?
Since I posted this address on Facebook in the hopes of getting people to check me out, I thought I’d give a little history about myself to those of you that don’t know me very well.
I am a happily married, full-time working mother of 2 and I love to write. Most of the time, I am just flat-out goofy. I am that person that hides behind humor. I am very guarded and while I can be serious, it’s very rare that I am because I don’t like to open myself up to people. I’m working on that though. I love the Lord and am thankful for the situations he walked me though. I like the person I have become. Some of you know my testimony and you get me. Some of you don’t and probably won’t, but don’t take it personal, I still like you! I am just quiet that way. Anyway- here are some fun facts:
1- U Silly Pickle- this is a nickname for my children. Yes, they are silly, no they are not pickles.
2- I will never use the following words: “hubby”, “hubs”, “yummy”, or “preggars” and will limit my use of “prego” only to refer to spaghetti sauce. Please do not ask me why I hate these words. I just do.
3- I will; however, use words that don’t make any sense. Vomitacious, Starvacious, Impressable. You know, pretty much add an awkward sounding suffix to most any word and I’ll probably use it. Definitions are optional.
4- I do not understand the phenomenon that is “American Idol.”
5- I am obsessed with all things Facebook, but will never ask you to join my mafia.
6- UFC is the most awesome sport ever. That is a statement, not a debate.
7- I’ve never struck a match. What?! I am not a Flintstone.
8- I did not know you could put outgoing mail in your home mailbox and that by lifting the flag, this signaled the mailman to pick it up and take to the post office for you until I was 22.years.old.
9- I am very serious about #8. That’s how I roll.
10- Most importantly, I love the Lord. I love my husband. I love my children. I love my friends. In that order.
Do you feel like you know me now? Because you totally should. In the future, you should know that I will talk a LOT about my children because I am a mom and will probably mention weight loss because, well, I am a woman and that is what we do. I will say stuff that will catch you off guard like say, BOOB.SWEAT. Are you uncomfortable now? What about you? That guy in the back? OK, we’re all good then. You should also know that I type EXACTLY how I speak, so when you read this, you should do so with a Valley-girl meets Southern Belle accident. Now throw out some “yo’s” and “homey’s”. Because I am part gangsta too. Consider my essence captured.
