First snow at our new house
So this space is going to be about our adventures; both of us living them, but documented by me. This is also going to be an outlet for me as we continue on our newest adventure – caregivers. It’s kind of like foster care, but not.
More random facts…
I want a dog/puppy, but the hubs doesn’t.
I have a fear of heights, and feet.
I have a slight obsession for The Real Housewives of…and The Food Network shows.
I went to college for seven years – some full-time, some part-time. And despite my dad’s thoughts, I am not a doctor.
I have two associate degrees and two technical certificates.
I am contemplating going back to school to get my Bachelors.
I actually use two of those four degrees/certificates with my current position.
I have one older sister.
I am a Starbucks lover!
I have a slight fetish in finding new blogs that I want to read/follow.
My dream job would be for me to work from home (and have summers off!)
I love the beach. Like move there, love it.
I hate bridges —> connecting back to the heights fear.
I have only been to 14 other states.
I would love to be able to travel all over the world someday.
My hair is naturally red strawberry blonde.
I am obsessed with calendars – I am still very much a pen and paper kind of gal.
Hence mentioned above, I am also a pen snob. I have my favorites, but I am always on the hunt to add to my collection.
I like to craft and decorate.
When looking for houses, one of my “musts” was a mantle. I have always dreamed of being able to decorate a mantle for each season/holiday. And I do!
That’s all – hope you enjoyed. Be sure to stay for the ride!
