Something different...

So as I was bouncing from blog to blog.  I came across All the Weigh.  She posted something called Friend Making Monday.'s Wednesday but I thought this would be fun anyway.  Basically for this particular one, I'll post something about myself for each letter of the alphabet (positive or negative).  So if you have a blog, you should do the same.  Then go to All the Weigh's website and post your link in the comment section. we go.

A) I like going to Atlanta to see the Braves play.

B) I really enjoy Boxing.  It's a great way to take out stress and get in shape.

C) I used to love cats but now I don't care much for them.  I can't stand having cat hair on me.  Now.....dogs are a different story :)

D) I love my husband Darren with all my heart and I am extremely blessed to have him in my life.  We've been married 6 years....together for 12 (yes we were in high school...crazy right?).  I could come up with a lot of D things but I picked my favorite.

E) Exercise has not really been my friend lately but I'm hoping to get back to a point where I actually enjoy and look forward to doing it.

F) I'm really tired of being fat.  I've been fat all my life.  I was born a fat baby.  I was a fat kid....teenager...and young adult.  I'm just tired of it.  This year, my goal is to go from Fat to Fit.

G) I thank God for His Grace and mercy and His love for me even when I am hard to love.

H) I'm pretty sure I could live in Hawaii.  I'm afraid of sharks so I would probably just chill on the sand and watch the ocean everyday.

I) I went to Italy last year and it was an amazing experience that I am truly thankful for.  It made me want to learn Italian or re-learn my French....or even another foreign language.

J) I really like Jewelry.  If I could own a ton of it, I would but I just can't justify spending money on it.

K) Kids! I long to have children.  I've said for years and years that I want to be healthy (& weigh less) before having kids.  I'm on the edge of 30.  I'm hoping 2014 is my year.

L) Laughter is important to me.  I like surrounding myself by people who can make me laugh without trying too hard.

M) My mom is the strongest woman I know.  She is the reason I am the person I am today (the positive side anyway lol).  She's always been my inspiration and I'm glad we get to talk every day.

N) My nephew Edmund can make my heart happy by just smiling his sweet lil' smile.  Our world has not been the same since he was born and it makes me sad that I don't get to see him more often.

O) I love the ocean.  Not actually getting in it but just looking at the waves rolling in and thinking about the wonders of the earth and how powerful our God is.

P) I would love to travel to Paris one day.  I took 6 years of French between High School and College and would need to brush up on it a bit before going but I would do it in a heartbeat.

Q) I can only deal with the quiet for so long before I have to turn some music on.

R) My great grandmother's name was Rosa Lee (said together kinda like Rosalie from Twilight lol).  If I have a little girl, I might use part of that as her middle name in honor of her.

S) Steve is my dad's name.  We are a lot alike in ways and in group or family settings, I always gravitate his way because I know he feels just as uncomfortable being there as I do lol  I love him.

T) Twilight and Tattoos.  Two things I love!

U) Utterly unable to come up with something Unique here.  haha

V) Vin Diesel and Venice.  You just can't go wrong with either one :)

W) I wish life wasn't so hard sometimes.

X) I haven't had an X-ray since 2002 when Darren and I were in a wreck and I separated my shoulder.  fun times.

Y) I would like to travel on a yacht....

Z) I would love to be able to keep up with the people who do Zumba.  I will get there one day.

Whew......that was more difficult than I anticipated.  I had multiple things for many letters and not a darn thing for several of them.


  1. Hey there, just found your blog! That is a great list! I've been a graphic designer for the last almost 20 years and I just started back to school to learn web design (vs. just print) and let me tell you PRINT is soooooo much easier than web. Oy vey!

    Anyhoo, you can find me at:

    1. Hi Sheila :) Thanks for stoppin' by. I've been to your blog a few times. It's very encouraging. I've had a hard time finding a lot of WLS blogs where people actually update them regularly so when I find one, I always make sure to write it down. I've dabbled in some web design but I've mostly done print stuff myself. Although I wouldn't mind learning more.
