About Me

I am 30 and I work at a tax firm. I wanted to broaden my horizons and meet new people. I have my Bachelors of Business Administration in Management, a certificate in Accounting and one in Human Resources.

I have two boys and a little girl who, are my entire world. My oldest is in 6th grade, he plays the saxophone in the middle school band. He plays football, soccer and baseball and he very recently crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. My younger son will be in 5th grade this fall. He also plays football, soccer and baseball. He plays the trumpet in the middle school band. He also recently crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts (an entire year early!!) They are called Irish Twins because they were born in the same calendar year, 2006. My oldest was born in January, and my little guy was born in December.. Its really fun when they are the same age, it confuses alot of people! My daughter is 5 and has started Kindergarten. She is enrolled in dance classes and piano lessons.

I am engaged to a wonderful man whom I love very dearly. He is awesome and I finally feel like I have found my one and only. He loves Dallas Cowboys Football and Duke University Basketball. .

POST CARD SWAPS

For the postcard swaps, I prefer store bought only. Please send only 4x6 size so that I can add to my collection. Tourst-y are great, anything that says something about your state, location, country any of that I would love. I love bright colors, and scenery, and nature and anything that really gives me a sense of where I am (well where the postcard is!!) I want to see what all the world has to offer, and I live vicariously through the postcards you send. Feel free to include the crazy roadside attraction cards also. I am an active member of postcrossing and I love getting postcards in the mail. If you live in a different country, could you write the word "Believe" in your language on the card for me, this would mean alot to me!! :) I prefer them to be naked (not in an envelope) written on and stamped! Thank you alot :)

*If it is an animal postcard swap I would really love to have a postcard of an animal that is special to your area. For example if you live in Louisiana maybe a Gator, or if you live in Colorado maybe a Moose...you get the idea. Something specific to where you live!!

*animals - see above

*mountains

*bodies of water

*churches

*waterfalls

*architecture

*buildings

*native people

*native plants

*bridges

*MAP CARDS

*touristy cards

*cards that show the seasons

*nature

*people dancing

*laundry hanging on the clothes line

*shadows of people

Dislikes

Things that I dislike in no particular order include:

*black licorice

*spiders

*things that smell like smoke -- my youngest son has severe asthma and I do what I can to avoid his triggers. (not trying to offend any one!)

*anything banana flavored-artificial or real- my youngest son is allergic to them and I like to share with my children.

*kawaii, diddle or other cutesy stuff. I am not against it if you are into that, I just am not a collector of those type of things.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my profile! I'm so glad you like my blog and my Russia pictures! :) Perhaps if you're interested we can arrange a private swap in the future. Thanks for stopping by, and have a happy day!

Thank you so much for the fun birthday card (Aug wish from wishlist group) Love it. Birthday wishes seem to take the sting out of getting another year older (well maybe not entirely but makes it not seem so bad) thanks again for brightening my day. :o)
