Ok, So if you want to know a little bit about me.....
I am the oldest of 3 kids. My dad is a Pastor, an only child, originally from Charlotte, and yes I was born there too. His job moved us around the Carolinas growing up. My mom is a nurse, the youngest girl of 6 kids, originally from Uxbridge, Massachusetts. She was raised in a Catholic Family and doesn't keep up with her parents anymore. The rest of the family is really close knit. We are the only ones that don't live in MA.
I grew up an honor roll student, FHA State Leader, not really popular, but people knew who I was. I always 2nd guessed myself. I did not worry overall because I knew I was living my life with no regrets. I was the "good girl." I dated some, and enjoyed High School, but wouldn't go back. I guess you could say I was a nerd. LOL I kept stats for Basketball and baseball. I graded papers, was in the National Honor Society, and Battle of the books. I LOVE TO READ By the way. I always envied my sister- 16 months younger than me, she was the beautiful one, ditzy, popular, the cheerleader, but SMART!
I gave my parents no worries growing up- I did backtalk, and wanted to go to the things the cool kids did, but when they said No, I didn't push the limits. I didn't sneak out. I never could do that though.
I came into my own in college. Campbell University was the place for me. More people that believed the same as me. I was in the majority. I felt comfortable. I knew my limits and knew my parents raised me to make the strong decisions I was. I dated the "hot" guys-HA, was on Homecoming Court- something that shocked me. I was in Student Government, planned the parades and parties. I dated the Spring King. Man- I would go back to those days!!!
I graduated with my Biology degree- no longer wanting to be a Dentist- but loved my field. I got a job working in labs and loved it. I met the man of my dreams- without knowing that he was the man of my dreams. He was younger than me, didn't like to drive, didn't like to leave the area, and was a mama's boy! LOL He won me over with persistence. . I became closer to my mom, and bought my own house. I Loved being an Adult.
I met new friends- neighbors, co-workers, random people, people with the same hobbies. I live to be creative or copy someone else's idea. I like scrapbooking, photography, saving, stamps, sewing, and I am sure I will find more. LOL. I like to stay busy, have a FULL life. I enjoy cooking, good wine, fun martinis. I like to have close talks, to sit and enjoy the company of another person.
I married the man of my dreams in 2002. I lost my job, but found one even better for me! Recruiting for personnel! I found myself- became more outspoken, stood up for more, got involved in politics.
I change my hairstyle, and color, I got a tattoo.....yes I did, conservative me.....but it is well hidden.
I have a daughter that I Love to pieces. I just want to hug her and squeeze her and love her forever. She is a pistol already, and has my temper, though I tell people it is Shea's. LOL She showed me a life I never knew I could love so much! I never knew my heart could be so Full!
I love church! I love how they reach out and I am getting more involved.
I am so proud of how far I have come and what I have accomplished in life so far. I believe it is the meaningful stuff!! and it does make a difference!!!
