Things You Should Know About Me if We are Going to be BFFs:
I am only 5’0 tall, but I married a guy who is 6’6.
(We get a lot of funny looks).
Before this last haircut, I never cut my hair
so short it
couldn’t go in a ponytail -
And I always slept with it up on top of my head.
My husband and I met online,
originally we only talked on Instant Messanger (AIM – and yes, I am dating myself here).
We met when he was 25 and I was 19.
I was a Freshman in college and he was working.
I thought he was way too hippie, and old for me (he had really long hair).
BUT we talked every day for eight years until we finally met in person.
(Picture from going out in Houston, TX when I first met his family).
Husband claims he knew from the first time he saw me that he was going to marry me.
(It took me almost a year to get to that conclusion as well).
Also, my mother claims that she knew he wasn’t going anywhere on his second trip out when she went to DIA with me to pick him up. He brought his dog, JJ, and my mom says she knew he was moving to Colorado.
I am easily stressed, but I thrive on stressful work – like legal work or health.
I have had three careers since graduating college.
I am a swimmer – foremost, it is the best source of stress relief.
Secondary to my love of swimming, I am a personal trainer and barre lover.
(You might ignore me now because I WILL talk about fitness and healthy eating whenever possible).
I cook healthy. My husband lost 50 lbs since we got married because of it.
On our wedding day in 2011.
This past summer (2014).
We have an Airstream and we LOVE to travel!
My husband and I have been to Southeast Aisa twice.
This includes Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Singapore.
My beauty regimen usually only includes AcneFree Cleanser and a little bit of eyeliner.
I really need to learn how to deal with this new climate, my skin LOVED living in ATL
but now that I’m in the mid-Atlantic, every inch of my skin is dried out and painful.
My Parents both went to the University of Rhode Island.
My brother and I both went to Colorado State University.
We were ALL Rams.
Lastly, I LOVE my Miniature Schnauzers.
Our First little Girl was JJ.
Then we got Nones.
(Our first picture of him – ever), And then we had two Schnauzers.
JJ died in July of 2013 when we were out of town.
I don’t honestly think I will ever stop missing our girl.
We got another dog, a boy to play with Nones.
Holes likes to chew on things.
And then we had two little boy Schnauzers and life was good.
