I'm 35 years old and I have been married to my wonderful husband for 12 years. We live in Louisiana (my husband's home state). I am originally from Arkansas. We have two dogs--Jada and Sujo. I have been swapping on and off for more than 8 years. I am currently in many yahoo swap/couponing groups. I am currently a full-time housewife. In the past, I've worked as an addiction counselor. I really love working with people, but I'm ready to go in a different direction while still staying within the social services realm. I have found that I have to have hobbies to maintain my sanity! Besides swapping, I love tv/movies, spending time with my family and dogs, shopping and decorating. I've also recently starting penpalling--I prefer long-letter snail mail.
I love top 40 pop/r&b. I also like some country and some rap--my music collection is very eclectic. My favorite artists are Mary J. Blige and Taylor Swift.
I have a ton of books but don't read very much. The last books that I read (and absolutely loved) was the Twilight series. I'm currently trying out James Patterson.
I love Pride and Prejudice, Sweet Home Alabama, The Notebook, Sixteen Candles and Pretty Woman. I guess you could call me a romantic. :-)
My absolute favorite shows right now are Parenthood, The Good Wife and Brothers & Sisters. I also like Desperate Housewives (but it's really fallen off over the years), Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Law & Order SVU and NFL football. I am also a big reality tv fan!!!
I really like making envelopes out of various pretty papers, some crocheting (only know a couple of stitches), rubber stamping/heat embossing, a little scrapbooking/card making and simple beaded jewelry.
I collect Christmas ornaments, anything personalized with my name or my initials on it, dragonfly decor and anything Pittsburgh Steelers (hubby and I are both huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans so LOVE anything dealing them).
I also really love cute/decorated notecards, lined stationary with matching envelopes, colored envelopes, colored gel pens/sharpies/felt tip pens, candle holders, plaques with neat sayings, framed artwork, picture frames, orbs, beaded jewelry, cute magnets, fruit scented Scentsy bars or Yankee/Colonial tarts. I love stickers--really like these types of stickers: butterfly, flowers, current holiday, friendship, and cute animals. We just recently moved into a new house and I would love new decor (please ask me for colors/themes).
Dislikes: coffee and anything coffee scented or flavored, used items (unless the swap specifies used), smell of cigarette smoke, items that are torn/broken/dirty, blue/black ballpoint pens and list pads (as I have plenty).
