About me

Occupation Stay at Home Mom, Sunday School Coordinator
Location Texas, United States
Introduction I am the wife of a great guy and the stay at home mom of two great kids. I am trying, each day, to put as much love and creativity and joy into this fabulous job of wife and mother as I possibly can.
Interests parenting, marriage, scrapbooking, audio books, frugality, family, cooking, vintage kitchenware, driving the kids around, planning birthday parties, looking for fun stuff to do with the kids, homework, volunteering in Little Dude's class, putting Little Dude on time out for various naughtiness, snuggling the kids on the couch, singing lullabies, reading aloud, planning and cooking dinner, washing dishes, doing the dread laundry, never putting away the clean dread laundry, making excuses for not exercising, trying to be a good friend, and kissing my husband when he gets home from work.
Favorite Movies Any Christmas movie, especially A Christmas Carol (I love the Muppet version. It makes me cry.) I try but just CAN NOT watch scary/gory/bloody/slasher movies, but I love anything about a vampire. I'll be honest and say that I like the nice Hollywood happy ending type movies, and I laugh like crazy when watching Adam Sandler (You can do it Water Boy!)
Favorite Music Folk, jazz, Classic Rock that I remember from when I was a kid, Country, soaring Hymns, torch songs from the 40's, songs written by Naomi (my undisputed BFF), and I admit I like the Flying Burrito Brothers in honor of my husband.
Favorite Books Little Women, Harry Potters, The Secret Life Of Bees, Twilight series, anything by Charles Dickens (I really love A Christmas Carol and David Copperfield and a Tale of Two Cities), I love old Children's books- Anne of Green Gables series, etc. I love Dr. Suess for reading aloud, ...there's more...
