Thanks to Trumpet Wives Club for nominating me for the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you so much! Go check her out ladies!
So, I have to list 8 things about myself:
1: I was born in San Bernadino, CA (a 'valley' girl), but grew up in Houston, Texas. We moved when I was 4 years old so my dad could work for the Space Program thru IBM.
If you watch the movie Apollo 13 and see the kinda geeky guys with their big frame glasses, short sleeves shirts with the pocket protectors and slide rules..well, he was one of them.
2: I am one half Japanese, my mom and dad met while he was in the Navy. Now, growing up bi racial in Southeast Texas during the late 60's, early 70's...yeah, not fun...but all a part of my story.
3: I have two younger sisters who are twins. 'Nuff said.
4: I LOVE cats, I think they are God's perfect creature and that He was only joking when he made dogs. I got my first cat when I was 14 years old...I would be the crazy cat lady if my dh hasn't threatened to divorce me if I got anymore! We only have 3.
5: We are a Marine Corps (military) family. Long line of service dating back to the war of 1812!
6: I have 2 of the best kids ever! I was extremely blessed in this area, both kids are simply good human beings that make me and dh look good.
7: I am a grandma! The best thing in life is being a grandma, and I am sooooo lucky they live nearby, so I get to see her at least a couple of times a week. She calls me 'gammy' and I call her my 'sweet pie' or 'missy boo'
8: I am a Christian. A relationship with Jesus is important to my dh and I. We've been very fortunate. My first influence were our neighbors growing up, who had 4 daughters, they lived out their faith...they had a whole, loving family...and invited me in. They got 4 girls thru the late 70's, early 80's and none of them did drugs or slept around. So, when I had my first child, I thought of them...and decided I wanted to raise my kids like that. AND that is when dh and I started looking for churches. And learned that Christianity is not about a religion and set of do's and don'ts but about a relationship with Christ. This will give you desire to do the do's and not do the don'ts.
