This is Me

Thank you Julie for today's chosen topic!  For those of you who are following (and perhaps even reading my blog)...This is Me...This is who I was before (and some things still am) I was the victim of infant loss, before I was Bailey's mommy, and before I entered into probably the toughest time to date in my life.

I grew up in a very small town in Oklahoma.  The movie "Footloose" was based on my hometown.  I graduated in a class of 50-60 students and was 1 of 4 class Valedictorians (sp?).  I was a cheerleader ALL through school, and loved it.

I married my high school sweetheart.  I met Adam while working at McDonald's.  His awkwardness, shyness, and dry sense of humor I guess just won me over!  We have been together for 11 years this October, and have been married for 5 years.

I have a Business degree from the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!). 




I work for a bank in the greater Oklahoma City area as the Teller Operations Supervisor.  I enjoy my job...most days.

I grew up with cats as a family pet.  We never had a dog.  So, Desmond, is the first dog I have ever owned.  He's spoiled rotten.  We do have 2 cats also...Smokey and Tabby.  Smokey acts EXACTLY like Adam...so anti-social...he even hides in the closet when people are at the house.


We are homebodies...through and through.  We don't have a lot of close friends, and we don't go out and do the social scene.  We are perfectly content staying at home.

I love the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series.  Yes...I'm a dork like that.  However, since Bailey's death, I haven't been able to read.  Reading used to be part of my nightly ritual.  I read for a little while before bed.  Now, I have no desire to pick up a book...no matter the topic.

I have a thing about personal space...I'm not a big hugger, but I love virtual hugs!  I like my "bubble"...

I hate my hair.  I never know what to do with it, and if it doesn't have just the right amount of hair crap on it, it stands about 10 feet tall.

I love with every fiber of my being...but if I'm crossed, I also hold grudges with every fiber of my being.  It's a fault of mine...I'm really trying to work on it.

I go to bed between 9 and 10 every night.  I still don't sleep without assistance from Ambien, but I have tried to maintain a schedule.  I also used to be able to nap anytime, anywhere, and then could sleep a full night.  I haven't had but maybe a handful of naps in the last 2 1/2 months.

There are some random facts about me!  Tell me a little bit about you!

I wish we lived closer Danae!! We could go see Eclipse together and forget about our troubles for two hours just to stare at Jacob's abs!! I'm going to take this question and use it for my post today.

I love this Danae! It's good getting to "know" you a bit more.

My husband and I are the same way - homebodies. And perfectly happy that way.

Ahhh, the Twilight series. I enjoy them quite a bit. The perfect "escape" books. I love being able to go to a different world for awhile.

I love love love reading these! : ) <3 Thank you for sharing with us! I used to be a bank teller. I absolutely loved it to be honest. I like rules lol. The day I put in my resignation, I was offered a promotion to YOUR job. I turned it down to work at the violin shop.

It is great to learn more about you! Do you have naturally curly hair? Arkansas is NOT being kind to my curly hair so far. :) Your puppy is adorable. We are such homebodies as well...We would much rather spend the evening alone with each other than with crowds of people. It is nice to learn that we have other commonalities.
