About Me

Hey, I'm an office manager at a social dance studio. I just got married June 28, 2008 (my husband makes me feel like sunshine). I’m originally from North Augusta SC (right across the river from Augusta GA, home of The Masters and James Brown) and moved to NC in 2007. I was raised by and married law enforcement, very proud of Daddy and my husband. We have two dogs (Feylan and Charlie) and two cats (Tink and Titus). I love being domestic and appreciate the ideas and roles of men and women of the 1950s (call me crazy).

My favorite colors are blue and green (aqua and clover); I love bright colors and patterns too. Our house is sort of a beach house decorated in a beachy eclectic style.

I like to wear clean scents...citrus or grass-y smells are my favorite. For my home I like warm scents like vanilla and cinnamon or summery scents like cotton or citrus.

  • I am a huge Elvis fan.
  • I love music, the beach, and margaritas.
  • I’ve been called a princess and a hippie.
  • I like to go shooting at the range with my husband.
  • My favorite tv show of all time is Dawson's Creek.
  • I love to travel and love cruises.
  • I seem to never go to bed at a decent hour.
  • I enjoy geocaching.
  • I'm slightly OCD and love making lists and labeling things. Things have a place and that's where they should go.
  • I'm a beginning knitter.
  • I like meeting new people and seeing new places.
  • I love cooking and sharing recipes.
  • I'm working to get us to live a little greener, use less, and produce less waste.
  • I love gardening and playing in the dirt, just being outside (gonna try my hand at a vegetable garden this year).
  • My husband and I like to go camping with friends on the islands here in the ICW.
  • I’m a vegetarian (lacto-ovo).
  • I like taking pictures of everything, but I especially enjoy taking pictures of my feet.
  • I'm pretty casual and laid back; I am a beach girl!

  • brown (although my husband's uniform is sheriff brown and I like it a lot ;-) )
  • seafood (that's right, I live on the coast and I don't eat the stuff)
  • licorice
  • cotton balls (they are like nails on a chalkboard to me, strange huh)
  • necklaces (they're just not for me)
  • spicy stuff
  • malt balls/Whoppers
  • anime
  • goth/dragons
  • country stuff (like farm houses and chickens)

  • mixed CDs
  • craft supplies (paper, stickers, rubber stamps, anything sparkly...)
  • yarn for knitting

My Man

My husband collects EVERYTHING (which just makes me more and more OCD).
Just to name a few...

  • law enforcement patches or other LEO stuff
  • knives
  • flashlights
  • pens

He loves:

  • peanut butter
  • chocolate
  • watches
  • his XBOX, Call of Duty, FPS games (sigh)
  • trail mix
  • coffee
  • anything camping related
  • St Michael's
  • ME!
  • pocket sized flashlights and mini keychain lights
  • nuts
  • anything multicam
  • crackers
  • single drink mixes (for his Nalgene)
  • paracord (he makes bracelets and lanyards)

Crafts I'd like to get into

I would like to start sewing again. My grandmother taught me when I was little; she's amazing at it. I've made pillows and even a bag one time. he he

I'd like to try making inchies. It seems like a fun challenge to fit something super creative on a 1" square.

Quilting...never done it, but always wanted to. My great-grandmother was a quilter, back in the day when you made 'em to keep you warm, not just as a craft project.

Oil painting...I've always been interested but have never had the resources to take a class. I still hope to one day.

Green IS my favorite color

I like to reuse packaging (or even random, clever containers). It reduces waste, which is a great thing! Please PM if you prefer the fresh stuff.
