Did you know..

Wolf spiders carry their babies on their backs.

Reading to your kids when they're younger, promotes a passion for reading when they're older.

I loved vampires before The Twilight Saga and even read the book when it came out in 2005.  :)

I saw my first horror flick when I was five years old and now I'm hooked.

One of my babies is white all over.. sits in my garage...and occasionally receives kisses that I blow to her.. She is my 1999 Ford Mustang.

I learned to skate when I was four years old.

I am impatient.

I'm not a sappy kinda gal nor do I appreciate romantic flicks...Ok.  Maybe occasionally.

I cannot stand hypocrites, dirty bathrooms, or kitchens.  Ever.

Say this and repeat daily:

If there is a will, there is a way.
Aspire and make it happen.
Make a plan.
Adapt to it.
Don't make excuses.
Your past isn't what's holding you back.
It's you.
Trust me.

I've been through a tornado.

I was a pastor's daughter for 18 years.

I started working at 13 years old and stopped when I had my daughter at 20 years old.

I should have been an exterminator, for I know way more about bugs than a normal person should.

I hate the beach, especially the sand.., and sunlight is my enemy.  :)

I love to create stuff even when it comes out like crap.. and I'll probably even post pictures of it on here thinking that it's amazing!  LOL

I can't make jello.  Don't ask me why..just an impairment.

I have extreme OCD.

I enjoy and even gross out my closest friends and family members by researching abnormal and weird diseases.  Just because I can.

I am the Google Queen.

I love Research.  Learning.  ..And knowledge.

Vintage is amazing.

I'm a hoarder at heart.. but am trying to be abundant in gifting my crap to other's.

I have been writing a book since 2005.  It's called, Counterfit.

My husband IS my other half.

Vinegar kills bacteria and can be used for windows, countertops, floors, rid of stink-ness, and bacteria in laundry.

I wrote a children series for my daughter.

I didn't use my glue-gun for four years because it was intimidating.

My children have lifted my snob-ish spirit.. and now I just know that I'm awesome instead of flaunting it.  HA!

I am happy.

I am in-love.

I love literature!

I have my Associates Degree in Business.  Pursuing my Bachelor's in Project Management (which is so much fun for me).. and will obtain my Master's in 2012-2014.  Yayyyy me!

A must-have is a To Do List.  Period.

Sticky notes are everywhere, all of the time..

and I hate putting laundry away.. so my husband does it for me rather frequently just so it gets done.

I love my life and have a passion for change, even if it's minor.



What words of wisdom do YOU have for someone, anyone?

What inspires you, moves you, and makes you who you are?

  2. This is 100% true:

    "Reading to your kids when they're younger, promotes a passion for reading when they're older."

    My mother read to me each night and I love to read.

    Then I read to my niece and daughter CONSTANTLY. We checked out 60 books sometimes twice a week from the library and we had our own too. I read and read and read. Now both girls like "long" books meaning 900+ pages LOL

  3. I'm from Oklahoma but I have never been in the throws of a tornado...although it did come close a few times. Were you scared to death? Where did you hide for shelter?

    P.S. That is awesome that you wrote a children's book for your daughter. :)

    P.S.S. Sticky notes are my fav. Couldn't live without them.

  5. Oh my goodness.. I have fallen so behind on responding to comments so I apologize. Lauren- Thank you!! Yes, I was beyond scared and in a car. Driving, more like FLEEING from a hurricane and then the tornado came into affect as my mother and I were driving on I-75. This was many, many years ago and luckily it didn't last long.

    Alli, thank you!! I will most definitely shoot right over and check out your blog!! Blogging is sooo much fun! ...I love school and the flexibility it provides for us. I just think how nice it'll be when my little boy goes to school and I go back to work.. with my Master's in tote. :)

    Thanks again, ladies!
