1.) I’m not a morning person ~ I routinely do not “get going” until late afternoon, even after my six cups of coffee.
2.) Speaking of coffee. I’m addicted. Like intravenous addicted. Do they have a group for that?
3.) I am SO in love with my daughters. There are no words to describe how it feels to be a mother. To finally understand the bond between a mother and daughter. It is overwhelming and pleasantly surprising.
4.) I really want to be a successful writer. I want to bring something to the lives of others while leaving my little “print” on the world for my girls to go to in the event I cannot be with them.
5.) I am SO not domestically inclined…..at all….not even a little bit. But…I’m ok with that.
6.) I am indecisive. I often defer to others for choosing things like the movie we’ll see or the restaurant we’ll go to for Girls Night Out.
7.) I talk. A lot.
8.) I’m wordy when I write….refer back to #7
9.) I value my friendships because they were my saving grace when some of my immediate family members failed me.
10.) I’m the mother of Monoamniotic-Monochorionic Twins who survived their 50-50 odds.
I know, right?
11.) I’m a closet gangster. You will find more rap on my iPod than any other music genre.
12.) I’m insecure to the core. I’ve gotten better with age and I really wish I would have known myself so well at 15 as I do now.
13.) I want to be a good mother. I want my daughters to be annoyed at my protective nature while they are growing up but at the same time seek me out as their biggest confidant.
14.) I want to adopt a child. One day. I was raised by a “village” – which saved me. I want to be that saving grace for another child (or two).
15.) I want to be fashionable, and while I do feel I keep getting better with age, it’s all still a little bit of a mystery to me. When I’m 80, I’ll get the animal print down and you will be in awe.
16.) I fear living hand to mouth because it means I’m back where I started. Back to the heavy, hard parts of life. I do not want to go back.
17.) I strive to live in the moment. But so often, I don’t. It’s frustrating.
18.) My celebrity crush is Alex O’ Loughlin…….google him, it will be worth it I promise.
19.) I wish life was just a little bit simpler, but then again, if it were, I would not be there person I am today.
20.) I’m an Elementary School Teacher when I’m not a full-time Mama to three wonderful little human beings. And I’m a recent freelance writer on the side with all my “extra” time.
21.) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE baby feet and those little creases in their thighs when they start putting on the pounds. The dimpled, chubby legs were especially sweet to this Mama of 2lb preemies.
22.) I want to put down roots. I want to live in a small town (small meaning Starbucks and Target are somewhere nearby – is that possible?). I want to have my kids grow up and live down the street where they can come and argue at my dinner table on a weekly basis.
23.) I love mindless television. Nonsense guilty-pleasure TV. The Real Housewives is like a train wreck….
Cant. Stop. Watching.
24.) I drink wine. Out of a box. It’s my trailer roots rearing their ugly head. Some cycles just can’t be broken.
25.) This is me. There is more. I plan to share it. Let’s be friends.
**This was orginally posted in my “About Me” section, so for those of you who thought this was oddly familiar, you’re not crazy. I’ve decided to go a smidge more professional in my “About Me” section ( I still mention the coffee crack habit…..but meh….have to have something there that’s fun.) and simply link back to this post.
