About Me

I've been MIA while my daughters all graduated high school. I'm now an empty nester and would like to get back to swapping:)

I am a wife of 28 years and a mom of three daughters. My oldest, Tiffany Joy, graduate from the University of Pittsburgh as chemical engineer. My middle daughter, Natalie Faith, is my artsy/musical one. She is currently attending SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) My youngest, Kaylee Hope, is a freshmen at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn State) studying biological engineering.

I love to read!! Karen Kingsbury, Lori Copeland, Robin Jones Gunn, Lauraine Snelling are some of my favorite authors. I also enjoy listening to books on CD when I'm driving!!

More about Me

My favorite movies are any one of the Disney Pixar movies. CARS, the first one, is my favorite one!!

Love the movie "You've Got Mail!"

I like bright & happy colors. My favorite color would be bright yellow, makes me think of sunny days and smile faces, which make me smile.

I have a basement FULL of arts & crafts....I've enjoyed trying new crafts.

I collect pumpkins & sunflowers!! My kitchen is full of pumpkins and sunflowers. Pumpkins hanging on the wall, pumpkins on shelves, on top of the fridge, in the window sill, just about any where I can put the:) It is always fall in my kitchen, I love it! My favorite time of year is fall, October. It may have something to do with it being the month of my birthday and sweatshirt weather!!

I've been collecting and trying to add more sunflowers to my kitchen. My family is tired of pumpkins:)

I celebrate my birthday month with five others in my family. I'm the oldest of four in my family, out of the six of us, five of us have birthdays in October: me 9th, mom 13th, brother 14th, sister 21st and dad 24th. My sister married an October birthday 19th! We have one big birthday dinner in October to celebrate everyone's birthday.
Plus my husband's sister's birthday is the 15th:)

I also collect shot glasses. Everywhere I go I find a shot glass to bring home, I started when my husband and I got married. I now have others bringing me shot glasses from their trips. I have over 150+!! I love all the different & fun ones.

What I Do on the Side....

I enjoy scrapbooking and paper crafting. As my husband has said, my crafts have exploded all over the house now that all the girls are gone! lol:)

I like gardening and butterflies. During the summer I like to raise monarchs and swallowtails.

My husband and I bought a tandem bike a few years ago. Which we really enjoy during the warm months. I like to collect anything with an tandem bike on it. Which is hard to fine!

I enjoy baking and cooking too! Breads and cookies are some of my favorites. And experimenting with recipes.

Dark Chocolate

My favorite candies are mini dark chocolate Reese cups and dark chocolate peanut mms!! And plain dark chocolate.

I do not like nuts!! Only peanuts (which technically are not a nut;))

My favorite hot drink is hot chocolate, dark chocolate being the best!

I enjoy a cup of tea but only decaffeinated green tea and chamomile tea with honey.

In the fall love hot apple cider (they we press ourselves) and wassail. (do not like the apple cider spice packs you can get)
