While I identify myself as a Texan I haven’t lived here my whole life. I started my life in Texas and then around the 5th grade my family moved. I did my “growing up” in Las Vegas. Yes, THAT Las Vegas. No, it wasn’t weird. No, I didn’t live in a casino. No, I don’t know Sigfried and Roy (My dad has been to their house, but that is another story). After I graduated high school my parents moved back to Texas and I followed them, like any good daughter does.
My husband’s name is Jason. When people first meet him they immediately think he is quiet. Which he is around people he doesn’t know. Around me? He never shuts up. And I like it that way. He is super caring and wickedly funny. He is also one heck of a dad. Together we have four boys. Yes…all boys. No we aren’t going to keep trying for a girl. That would mean we were trying for one in the first place. Our boys are talked about a lot around here…they are: Austin, Brodie, Chase and Evan. Yes, we realize we screwed up the pattern.
Other interesting random things about me:
I am blessed to be a daughter of THE KING! I am a stay at home mom. I have not eaten a bon bon, however, since high school. We homeschool our children so I drink a lot of coffee. I am a runner and photographer. I make up words quite often. My husband thinks that I should publish my own dictionary to save him from the confusion. I love to cook and I am pretty good at that. I hate laundry with a passion that only mass murders usually possess. With four kids I have a lot of the dreaded laundry to do too. I always put my right shoe on first. I am hopelessly addicted to the Internet. I text message my husband roughly 1500 times a day. I am highly opinionated, but I try to not step on too many toes. I think political correctness has ruined America. I have anxiety attacks when I am running late. Being on time is late in my book. This annoys just about everyone around me. I love Starbucks and realize that it is ridiculous to pay that much for coffee, but don’t really care. We are diehard Texas Tech fans. We have two Boston Terriers, Bugsie and Frank, that our basically our other children. We also have two cats that I used to hate, but now I tolerate. We are a loud and random household….and we like it that way.
