About Me....

Here are some facts you may or may not know about me...I thought I would share! Another great idea from Ann-Marie Friesema!  ;-) 

I always wanted to be a mommy and wife, that was my lifelong dream of 18 years!

I love camping.

I lived in tents then buses for several years. We cooked on a campfire, then bought a wood cookstove. Our income was 20.00 a week....we were POOR!

My favorite color is pink, no purple, well maybe blue...okay, I don't have a favorite color.

I am confident in who I am, which I am finding to be a rare thing.

My pet peeve is disrespectful children. And disrespectful adults!

I love big white fluffy clouds and coffee...

I was born in Nebraska.

My husband is my best friend, followed closely by my sister and mom.

I love to cook and sew and read....

My husband is 16 years older than myself...and is still in amazing shape and quite good-looking! 

I birthed 5 children at home, in 6 years, and had my last one when I was 26!

I love country music!

I love to travel...with my whole family!

I am constantly in need of patience.

I hate is pure self-discipline that drives me.

For some reason I have always wanted a tatoo.

I abhor snakes...all kinds, colors, and sizes. It is rare if I even let fake rubber ones in my house.

If you feel so inclined, share a few things about YOU that I might not know. If you
have any questions...feel free to ask!  :-)

Good Morning...

When Steve and I were first married over 15 years ago, I would get up with him every morning. I would make breakfast for him, and his brother who lived by us. Well time passes and in just a few short years 5 children were born. When they were little and still breast feeding I would always see Steve in the morning before he went to work. Since I was a scheduled feeder they would be up at 6 to nurse. I would then get to say good-bye to Steve and get my "morning kiss" that I loved so much. Well soon babies turned into toddlers, toddlers into school-age persons and I don't get up in the morning anymore. I am NOT a morning person. I love laying in bed for 10-15 minutes before rolling out, going to the bathroom and brushing my teeth. On the rare occation that I do get up with Steve it is more of a "watch him eat breakfast, read the Bible, and head out the door" kind of thing. I have mentioned several times that I love it when he comes up to tell me bye and give me a kiss. I have NOT however nagged him at all! I know times flies for him in the morning too and he shoots out the door at 6:18 am! So needless to say when I felt someone tap me this morning and I rolled over (looking my best I am sure! *sarcasm*) and saw Steve there my heart just melted! "Have a good day Honey, Love you" *Kiss* As I was laying there listening to his Jeep pull away I was thinking that it is amazing to me that even after 15 years I still feel giddy with a "good morning kiss" I hope others are this blessed!
