About Me

I'm a 36 year old, mother of 4 beautiful babies. I have been married to the love of my life for 17 years! :) I'm a very lucky lady.

I love pen palling, scrapbooking and many, many more things! I'm addicted to VERY long letters and truly getting to know other people on a deeper level. :) I am currently searching for a new journal pal. I ADORE journal palling. It's a creative way to share my life and really, truly get to know someone else!

I am silly and sappy. I can be off the wall in my moments but it's mostly happy off the wall-ish times. I love to make up my own words and to just be and enjoy life. I am extremely energetic & bubbly and I love making true friendships! I just LOVE genuinely good people! I live in Maine, USA and have my entire life. I love it here!

*Please do not send religious stuff. I have my own beliefs and I will practice based on my own preferences. I have a lot of friends who practice religion. I'm not against that. "To each their own". My preference is simply to find my own way and do my own thing in this regard. Thank you.

Hobbies/Interests: Soooo so many including: hanging out with my hubby & kids, scrap-booking, taking photos, watching movies, listening to music, camping, hiking, kayaking, nice long walks, biking, writing very long letters and receiving, EBaying, thrifty shopping, clearance rack shopping, mall shopping once in a while, playing poker, playing games, playing volleyball and more. I like to do so many different things! I really enjoy going to the drive-in movies these days! There are not too many things I won't try at least once! ;) I'm also passionate about the Relay For Life cause.

Favorite TV shows: I really don’t watch a ton of TV. I have a hubby and kids who dominate our home TV’s most of the time. When I do though, I really enjoy being a reality TV junkie! I also love Dr Phil, Golden Girls reruns, Big Bang Theory and tons more. I prefer to watch movies over TV shows though.

Favorite movies: Toooooooooo many to list...most of them! LOL...Guess I will list a few: Ever After, Proof of Life, Beautiful Mind, Good Will Hunting, Patch Adams, Troy, Gladiator, We Were Soldiers, Harts War, Enemy at the Gates, Here on Earth, Poetic Justice, Save the Last Dance, Step Up, Raise Your Voice, The Notebook, Platoon, Hamburger Hill, Slackers, Weekend at Bernie's, The Crow, Uncle Buck, A Cinderella Story, Finding Forrester, 27 Dresses, Baby Mama, the Hangover, Fear, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and TONS more. I just absolutely LOVE movies.

Favorite music: I love music of most kinds....many favorite bands...there isn't much I won't listen to! My husband says I'm stuck in the 80's though I love current stuff too. To name a few: Eminem, Nirvana, Metallica, Ozzy, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, Gwen Stefani, Theory of a Deadman, Alanis Morissette, Carrie Underwood, Trisha Yearwood, Blue October, Pink, Queen, Guns N Roses, Live, Michael Buble, CCR, Phil Collins, Beyoncé, and TONS more! I even love symphony orchestra. We have a college locally that offers free concerts occasionally and I love to go with the kids!

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to coupon and save tons of money. Some of the items & brands I use are:

please no cleaning products, febreeze, etc

Arm & Hammer liquid laundry detergent

Chobani, Yoplait and almost any yogurt

any kind of dish liquid

big amount coupons on makeup ~ any brands


Hamburger Helper

Scott toilet paper

Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo & body wash

Birdseye vegetables

Black beans

Frozen veggies

Most kinds of coffee creamer


Cereal of most kinds (I have 4 kids!!!) ~ especially .50-.99 off of ONE box coupons

Baking goods like Betty Crocker and any of the brands.

Hunts canned tomatoes other brands of canned tomatoes

canned fruit coupons

Dole Pineapple Del monte fruit cups packaged fruit of most any kind ....and TONS more!

My FAVORITE coupons are: anything that is between .50 and .99 OFF because the grocery store I use doubles the coupons UP to .99 and I save tons this way and often get free items. ;)

Comment: Re-rating. Thank you Jan, for the swap. It arrived safely today. I love the two art images, they're very sexy! Thank you also for the extra goodies. It wasn't necessary to include them, but I do appreciate it. I'm very sorry, but I can't rate above a 3. Simply because it took too long for the swap to arrive. I am very thankful you were able to send.
Response: I earned a 3 and that's great. Thank you and I'm glad you got it and like everything :)
