About me!

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Since I haven't gotten around to the about me page, I thought I would just make a list to share.


  • I was born in Las Vegas, NV--moved to Central Louisiana during my teen years

  • I have 2 older brothers

  • My Dad lives in Central Louisiana. My mom died about 17 years ago at the young of 52 from breast cancer

  • I went to school at Southwestern Adventist University--Nursing degree

  • My specialty is Critical Care/Open Heart Recovery

  • I worked at one of the best Open Heart Recovery Units in the country

  • I have a wonderful husband who is so persevering and such a visionary that it is sometimes scary

  • I told my husband before we got married that "I am not domesticated." Boy, how the Lord changed my mind

  • I enjoy paper things such as fancy pens, pencils, crazy paperclips, different kinds of sticky pads, etc

  • I have two wonderful daughters (Meg, 19 and Ari, 14)

  • Anything that is pink peaks my interest. Pens, water bottles, flashlights, office supplies

  • My daughters think I am eccentric(maybe they don't know the definition)

  • Quilting fabric is on. I like to touch and take in the colors. I can spend hours in a quilt shop. What am I talking about, I have

  • I live an hour from any worthwhile grocery store. The nearest gas station is 18 miles away

  • My youngest daughter is a duplicate of me. Sometimes I just laugh at her

  • My oldest daughter says that I am soulful. I think it is just my southern roots

  • I love linen material. Not bad for a woman that hates to iron

  • I am totally into heirloom tomatoes. Buying heirloom seeds is like picking fabric for a sewing project

  • I like making bags

  • My family says that I am dainty because I don't like to get my feet dirty. Whatever

  • I love books, books and more book. I love buying my children books

  • I love fluffy towel and they have to be folded a certain way

  • I like 600(+) thread count sheets and flannel sheets in the winter.

  • I love gardening but I am just not allowed to touch the houseplants, I kill them

  • My house is not totally finished and sometimes it drives my crazy. Very cozy though

  • I am passionate about "True Education"

  • I enjoy homeschooling even though about 3/4 of the way through the year, I am dragging my feet

  • I thoroughly enjoy buying school supplies

  • Some people say I am very organized. That is from many years of nursing

  • Rubbermaid storage bins are on the top of my list. It is difficult to do without them

  • I hate talking on the phone. I don't even answer my own phone. I'd rather visit

  • I love my church and the message

  • I enjoy kitchen appliances and gadget. I think I use to be just on the verge of obsessed until I learned about simplifying

  • My favorite comfort foods are homemade biscuits (which my grandmother taught me how to cook--I had to modify to a healthier version) and butter beans

  • I don't exactly like cooking (especially since the girls do such a wonderful job) but I like to cook vegan food with a southern flair

  • A little over 90% of the food we eat is made from scratch and home grown

  • I like the concept of food storage. My food pantry puts a smile on my face

  • I enjoy the history of the deep south

  • I love quilting

  • I live on twenty acres. I have two other neighbors--the closest a 10 minute walk. It is a mile down my driveway to the country asphalt road.


  • Well, there you go!!!

    @ Ann--You know they are good. When I was small and would visit my grandparents, she would always have a pot of butter beans waiting just for me with stripples in it. That was good eating. Good memories. LOL.

    Marilyn!!! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I think that maybe we were destined to be friends. I was born in Las Vegas too and now I live in the state of Washington! Lol!
    I love this post. I'm thinking about doing a post like this myself :)
