About Me

Hi, I am Connie,I am a 50 ish wife and mother. I have been married for 24 years and have a wonderful daughter! I have an identical twin( and yes her name is Bonnie!!) Mom had to come up with names quickly, they were expecting a baby boy!! Surprise!!!!. I think that is where I have received my love of surprises. The whole swapping thing was new to me, but I have quickly become addicted too it. I am also a licensed Optician for 31 years, A Girl Scout leader for 11 years. But now that I have found this site, I do believe the craft side of me is coming back out. 04/21/10 We have a new addition to the family!! A 6 week old schnoodle puppy. Her name is Evie. I lost my beloved Sandy on 02/27/10. But the house was empty without a fur baby running around, so in comes Evie. She is full speed, I was use to a 12 year old, and now this. I have my hands full, but I'm loving every minute.

I LOVE Christmas! The decorations, the lights, the music ( I hum X-mas songs all year) the yummy smells, the Christmas cards, shows, and all the wonderful, and happy spirit of the season. I see more smiles and cheerful looks during this time of year than any other time. Christmas

Oct. 2010: I have started a new hobby. Yea!! I bought a new camera and several different lenses, and driving everyone around me crazy taking photos.. It has been great fun going on long drives and seeing new places, so I can get different shots...Sept 2015- Still loving my Photography!.. I got my Christmas present early this year from the DH, a new full frame camera!! I am one happy girl!!!...

Thank you SO much for the amazing and generous stocking stuffers from WIYM SS Gift #1. I absolutely love the citrus towels and kitchen set, and the warm fuzzy grippy socks. These are all so perfect for me. This is the nicest prize I received out of all of the year's stuffer swaps by far. Hope your New Year is a great one!

Re Awesome $25 Profile Based Christmas Gifts- Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much for these beautiful Christmas gifts. Every year my daughter visits with me from Seattle for the Christmas holiday and we open all of my gifts on Christmas Eve, it is our ritual. You really spoiled me. Thank you so much. I really appreciate my gifs. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
