THANK YOU SO MUCH SIDNE!  I really appreciate that you sent me this award.  I am so glad that you are my friend!

Seven things about myself
1.  I love to read (obviously), but I love it so much that I will sacrifice any amount of my sleeping time to say up and read a book.  I average about 5 hours sleep a night.  I read EVERY NIGHT before I go to sleep.  I read until I can't keep my eyes open.  I also have the TV on for sound.

2.  This year my husband and I will be celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary!  

3.  One thing on my bucket list is to swim with dolphins.  I think they are so amazing!  Today my husband promised he will take me!  We are going to renew our vows and take a second honeymoon.  Not sure when, but within the next few years hopefully!  

4.  I have three tattoos.  I have dolphins around my ankle (my first one-because I love dolphins) which I got about 15 years ago (I think). The second, which I got last summer, is butterflies with the names of me and my 2 daughters and a dragonfly with my husband's name on my back. I got the tattoo done twice.  I had gone to the tanner (DUMB) just before I got my tattoo and got burned really bad.  After I got my tattoo, some of the color peeled off.  I had to go later and get it redone!    The weird thing is I got my dolphin tattoo done twice too.  The first time I just didn't seem dark enough and peeled.  I went back to the tattoo shop and they blew me off.  I ended up going to Fast Freddy in Port Huron, MI to get it redone.  He did a great job.  He has since passed away.  The third tattoo is the battle mark from the Vampire Academy books.  I got that last summer as well.  I loved that series and thought that would be a great tattoo. It's on the back of my neck.  I really wanted something to signify my love of books, so I thought it was perfect!   The most painful tattoos were the ones on my back (on the spine).  It took an hour but hurt like heck!  Even though it hurt, I can say that I wouldn't be against getting another tattoo.  My 2nd and 3rd tattoos were done by my cousin Nicole.  She is an awesome tattoo artist!

5.  I am a pretty quiet person and express myself so much better in writing!

6.  I usually change either my haircut or style ever time I get my hair cut!

7.  I almost went to beauty school.  I was all signed up, but I changed my mind at the last minute and went to school to be a legal administrative assistant instead.  My high school counselor seemed to think that going to school to cut hair was dumb.  He didn't say that in those words, but I got the message loud and clear.  Plus, since I am a quiet person, I was worried about cutting hair and trying to strike up a conversation.  Also, I have allergies and thought all that hair flying around would really bother my allergies.  I worked as a legal secretary for about 10 years.  Now I am a middle school secretary and love it! 


  1. 17 years, that is so wonderful. I had that desire to also to swim with a dolphin and the close i came was standing next to one in the water. i always wanted to become a trainer. I so love dolphins. I collect all kind of dolphin things. i will have to send a pic of some of my collecting items. I express myself better in writing also.

  2. I collect dolphin things too! Yes, I would love to see pictures of your collection!
