About Me

If I didn't rate you please send me a reminder. I try to be good about that but sometimes I forget! Please let me know if something doesn't show up! That way I have a chance to make it up to you!

◊ I’m a wife to the most wonderful husband in the world (John). We have 3 children. 2 girls named Annika (18 yrs) and Maya (12yrs) and a boy named Jonas (9yrs). ◊ We live out in the middle of nowhere in West Tennessee. We're Yankee transplants. lol ◊ We are a family that loves animals. We have 2 dogs (a Pit Bull and an English Bulldog), 3 cats, a lovebird, a hamster, 2 goats and 12 chickens. ◊ We're a homeschooling family. I also work part time.. ◊ I have hobbies but not much time to enjoy them since we're so busy. However, they are sewing, photography, and reading. I am really trying to spend more time sewing these days.

I used to participate quite a bit in Swap-bot. However life took over and I have been inactive for many years. I am going to try to slowly get back into it.

Two things I REALLY dislike......

1 = the smell of cigarettes! I quit a while back (yes, i have cheated more times then I care to admit). But, I hate receiving items that smell like smoke. 2 = animal odors! Barf! I have a dog but I don't think she stinks! I got a swap once that smelled so bad of cat urine that I had to throw it out. I even put it outside for 2 days to air out. I really liked it too!

Favorite Music

My husband and I are into OLD time country (hank williams, stuff like that), Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Hellbilly, mostly independent bands. Hank 3, Bob Wayne, Reverend Horton heat, Stray Cats, Unknown Hinson, Nekromantix, blah blah blah.

Favorite Books

I love reading! I prefer non-fiction/memoirs but I will read what ever I can get my hands on if I have a few spare minutes to read! I am currently reading Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil. I also reading books on people leaving religious cults. I find it so interesting.

Favorite Movies

I like horror, suspense, thriller, cult classics, and comedy the most. Since I am a girl.....i do tend to like chick flicks now and then too. The Harry Potter series will always be our family's favorite movies list! (I'm a Huffelpuff.)

Favorite Television

We don't have cable tv so I'm sure we miss out on some cool shows. We're all about The Walking Dead! I also enjoy The American Housewife, Family Guy, The Golden Girls, Robot Chicken, Stranger Things I ♥ SQUIDBILLIES!
