About Me

I am a single mom of three beautiful children that love to keep me on my toes. :) I have two girls that are 15 and 12 and my son is 11

I love spending time with my family and friends, listening to music, watching movies, reading, writing, meeting new people, the outdoors, trying new recipes, jigsaw puzzles, cross stitch, animals and many more things. I like to stay busy physically and mentally.

I feel I have met the man I want to be with. On July 25, 2014 will be 1 year that we have been together and I am looking forward to many more!

**** Update Jan 26, 2014**** I received a very adorable envelope has a little panda on it and is tannish in color. There is no return address on the envelope. When I opened it there is a piece of paper about the size of printing paper folded up. But there is nothing written on it... I do not know if it is for a swap on here or what is going on. The postage is of a woman holding a child and has '88' on it for cost. If this is from you please let me know so I can find out what it is for... Thanks

**** Update March 11, 2014 **** Due to medical issues I am going to slow down on my swapping. I will still do some but I do not get out as much right now due to the problems and I do not trust to drop mail in a box where I live so I will still be checking in and if there is a swap I "can't live without" I will join but not like I had in the past. At least until I find out what is going on. Swaps I am signed up for WILL be sent out and ones I receive will get rated. This just goes for the number of new swaps I am signing up for. Thanks

***Jan 3, 2015 I started to move in with Jason. The move has been taking up a lot of time. If you are waiting for a return letter from me please be patient I will get back to you ASAP.

****Update Jan 17, 2015**** I had previously thought I would be getting a new box closer to where I am now. This is not the case after all. I am keeping the same post office box until the Summer 2015 when I will be changing. I am also doing much better physically (not the problems with my back much anymore)

****Update Jun 22, 2015**** I have a new post office box finally. It is changed and correct on here.

Favorites

BOOKS

I mostly read romances but also will read thriller and horror as well. Sometimes I still read young adult books. I've started writing in this genre and need to keep updated with the others in the genre. A couple of my favorite authors include RL Stine, Mary Higgins Clark, Keith Ablow, Nicole Jordan and Heather Graham.

Right now I am on a historical romance kick.

TELEVISION

I love Vampire Diaries, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men (in my opinion the old ones with Charlie Sheen are WAY better than the newer ones), Hawaii Five O and Grimm. I also like NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. And I will admit I love to watch WWE. It is my guilty pleasure :)

CRAFTS

I guess this isn't going to be a complete list as I haven't had much of a chance to try new crafts so I will say it is a work in progress... I do like to cross stitch and crochet though. I love doing jigsaw puzzles and my two youngest like to help with them as well.

Favorite Movies

*Dirty Dancing

*Grease

*50 First dates

*The Ugly Truth

*Couples Retreat

*The Proposal

*Pretty Woman

FAVORITE ACTORS/ACTRESSES

*Ian Somerhalder

*Johnny Depp

*Vince Vaughn

*Adam Sandler

*Bradley Cooper

*Patrick Swayze (may he RIP)

*Gerard Butler

*Julia Roberts

*Jennifer Aniston

*Katherine Heigl

Collections

I have a collection of frogs with stuffed frogs, ceramic frogs, frog paper, stickers, postcards... anything with frogs on I gotta get it :)

I also have a smaller collection of postcards.

Just started collecting magnets of different kinds

Likes/Dislikes

LIKES.....

*frogs

*Postcards

*stickers

*stationery

*homemade envies

*new penpals

*Cute address labels

*fat pens (easier to use than skinny ones with the wrist problems I have)

*the colors green, blue and black

*magnets

DISLIKES...

*cigarette smoke

*really religious stuff

*rude people

tea... not that I really dislike it but I hardly ever drink it so I would prefer them to be sent to those who enjoy it. I will admit though I've got some tea bags from countries other then the USA and I think it is cool to see the writing on them so I've kept them just for that reason :) But when it comes to hot drinks I am more of a hot cocoa kinda gal

For swaps:

  • I don't wear makeup and my ears are not pierced so please don't send these items

Writing

I love to write. Besides the normal letters I also write short stories. I also completed my first novel in November 2012 while signed up for the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It was a HUGE accomplishment for me! :) I write in a couple genres which include young adult thriller and romance, and also romances for adults.

NaNo 2013 is quickly approaching and I am still undecided on whether to work on another high school story or if I want to work on one geared more towards adults. Either way I got a few ideas and I am going to be a on the edge of my seat kind of gal waiting until the 1st to figure out which I end up with since I can't make up my mind just yet :)

*** Update 11/12/13 due to being sick I am behind so I have lots to catch up with my writing for NaNo

*** Update 7/4/14 I am going to try and complete Camp NaNo this month. I feel like I have been neglecting my writing with everything going on :(

Swaps

I send out all my swaps. If I know I cannot do so I will not sign up for them and if something happens unexpectedly after I sign up I will let the person I am swapping with know as well as the coordinator.

If for some reason you do not get a swap from me PLEASE let me know before you rate poorly.

The mail has been known to lose things and I've received mail that was sent to a University in my town by accident.

Anyway just let me know if you do not receive something and I will resend it. Thank you! :)

From reading your profile, I see you like frogs just a wee bit so I made you a couple. With the ages of your children, I imagine you stay pretty busy. Hope everyone is doing great and you got settled in with Jason easily. I wish you and your family the very best. Hope you are enjoying some warmer weather.
