Have you ever done any drugs other than what a doctor has prescribed?

Nope, I sure haven't. I have never really wanted to try them growing up and now that I can honestly say I have never done them, I want to keep that up. I want to be able to tell my daughter I did not crack under the peer pressures of high school. I made a choose to stay drug free and I am proud of myself.

What is stressing you out most right now?

I guess if I am honest it is my husband and I trying to get our credit cleaned up and our score raised a bit more to be able to qualify for a home loan. I know we have a year of work to do, but the process seems to be so long and dragging on. And trust me, I know that we have put ourselves where we are today. It is just a bit stressful trying to work it all out and get it to where it needs to be.

What is your biggest fears?

My biggest fears is something happening to my kiddos. I know I am a mom and that fear is normal... but it is my biggest fear! I know they are both protected and loved and will flourish in their life... I love watching them grow!

Who do you look up to?

Name someone who you did wrong and what did you do:

I am not someone who does wrong often. I guess the only thing I could say is maybe to my ex-husband for the way I acted at times during our 10 years together. I am sure there were times he was not happy with the way I was acting and vice versa. I never mean to do anything wrong intentionally to anyone.

We have overcome our past and have moved forward with our future raising our kiddo.

My most embarrassing moment would be the same as the last 2 posts... The night I blacked out and then the moment I had to tell my dad my car was almost totaled. Not very good moment's in my life and definitely embarrassing the day after!

What is the worst experience you have ever had?

Well, this sure goes with the craziest experience... The worst experience would be my last big drinking night out before I moved back in with my parents. We had some drinks at my cousin's house and by the time we were getting ready to leave to go to Beaumont to go to a club, I was completely out of it and my cousin didn't let me leave. My car however, was taken by my friend without my permission.

I woke up the next morning not knowing where my car was. Turns out, the friend that took it got in an accident in it and he was in jail. He was okay, just in jail. My car however, was not okay! Super sad day!

Definitely a life lesson learned that day!

What is the craziest night you have ever had?

The craziest night I have ever had is probably one of the nights where I was drinking. I guess the one I will share is the one night where I completely blacked out. I was 18 and I was living on my own with a buddy at the time. We went out and partied hard. I don't remember the rest of the night. There are pictures that proves I was out of it. But, not one of my best moments!

What would make your life complete?

One paragraph, really? Okay, so here it is. I was born in 1980 in a small town in Southwest Louisiana. Great up with 2 older brothers and a best friend that live behind my house. In 1999, I moved to Tacoma, Washington. Moved in with my boyfriend Justin. In 2006, we got married. In 2008, we had our first kiddo. In 2009, we got divorced. In 2010, I started dating Abe. In 2012, we got married and I gained a step-daughter. And I have been living my happily ever after, ever since.

My dream job if money wasn't an issue:

I think this would be a teacher for maybe 2nd or 3rd graders. I have always wanted to be a teacher, but the length to get there and the path I choose to wait for college made it harder for me to succeed. So, I choose a career path that I would be able to succeed at.

It works for me, but my dream has always been to be a teacher!

My dream date:

This will always be with my husband Abe. He makes me incredibly happy. It doesn't matter what we do together, we have a blast. So, my dream date is anywhere my husband is...

What are you most grateful for?

I am most grateful for being a strong independent woman. I made a big choice to move to Washington state when I was 19 and I do miss my family down south, but it was the best decision of my life. I made that choice. I chose the path I would walk down. I have cherished every awesome experience this journey has taken me down. 

The journey has not always been easy. Some days were the hardest I have ever been through, but I was able to stand up on my 2 feet again and continue to walk down my path! 

After my divorce I was not sure I could do it myself, but then I decided I owed it to myself to make sure I could support the kiddo and myself on my own. And I did. I flourished and grew during the experience.

He is a hard worker for our family and I appreciate and love him with my whole heart. I am very thankful God brought this mighty man into my life!

I look forward to my future with him!

What are your best qualities?

I think my best quality is how honest and trustworthy I am with everyone I am around. I love people and I want to help anyone I can. I think those 2 qualities are some of my best... along with being kind and nice to everyone.

Just remember, you don't know what anyone is going through on any given day. Always be nice and kind!

What do you want to improve about yourself?

I want to lose weight and enjoy life more. My body aches all the time and it would DEFINITELY help my bulging disc in my neck. But it is so hard. So so hard.

But I won't give up. I know I am only hurting myself. I got this!

First thing you would do if you won the lottery?

The first thing I would do if it was right now is buy a house and pay cash. We have to get our credit up a bit in order to buy a house and man it is not as easy as I had hoped it would be.

But, once we buy our first house it will be all worth it! 

So, that is what I would do. Pay cash for my house so we didn't have to wait for our credit to improve...

Where would you go if you could be anywhere in the world right now?

Are you happy right now? If not, why not?

I try to live my life being happy. Life is too short to be unhappy. It is hard sometimes, but I try to wake up each and every day with a positive attitude. Sometimes it is hard because I am so tired. But, I make the most out of my days.

So, today. I am happy!

What do you love most about your best friend?

I have a few best friends and each of them are different in their own way. But all of them are very trust worthy and are there when I need them. They love me just the way I am and they understand just who I am. We might not always talk every day, but when we do its like nothing has changed.

Where would you like to be in 20 years?

In 20 years I will be 2 years from 60 years old. By this time in our life, I hope that my kids are thriving living their lives with their husbands and hopefully we have a few grand kids running around. I hope that we are able to travel a little bit and enjoy the end of our 50's.

Wow... just thinking about the next 20 years is just wow.

Favorite Childhood Memory

I grew up with some great kids. I lived in one house on my street. In the house across the street was Jennifer and then the house behind me had my friend Heather living there. We were always together. Jennifer ended up moving away and we didn't stay as close, but Heather and I stayed best friends all our lives. 

Of course, life changes and we had times where we didn't talk as much... but we are still as close as ever. She is the only one that has walked beside me growing up with the hard things I had to go through. We were there for each other no matter what. It is still the same to this day, just different because I live so far away. 

She married my brother though... so now she is not only my friend but my sister!

A letter to yourself 5 years from now:

Dear me age 43:

How is your 40's treating you?
Well, I hope you stop taking life so serious. It is okay to be responsible and take care of the adult stuff you need to, but life is also suppose to be fun and definitely lived! I hope you are enjoying your kids... now ages 18 and 15. Where did the time go? Spend every minute you can with them... because they will soon be off living their own life. Hopefully making time for their parents, but it won't be the same. They will have their own friends. Their own jobs. Their own school schedules. They will be trying to figure out this thing called life. 

You are doing an amazing job as a wife and a mother. You are too hard on yourself. As long as everyone is happy and fed and loved, they are doing just fine! Make sure you smile even on the bad days. Remember to laugh with your husband every chance you get. Life is hard. Enjoy every day together. Life is too short. It could change in a second. Love with everything you have. Give whatever you can. Cherish every second that God gives you! 

I hope you remember you are beautiful. Again, you are too hard on yourself. You might not be the weight you want to be or you might not have the hair that you want or this or that... but YOU are beautiful. Inside and out. And you should tell yourself that every day. Your husband thinks you are and so does God... so why do you think otherwise?

Here is to 5 more years of great memories. Cherish all of them big and small.

Your 38 year old self...

Newest toy bought for yourself:

I think this is a toy for both my husband and I, but we got me a set of golf clubs this week. I am not a big golfer, but he wants me to go with him and I didn't say no. I use to golf a long time ago when my grandparent's were alive. They had a club membership and I remember going with them often. I wouldn't golf all the time... I drove the cart, but it was fun memories. 

I am excited to go with my husband and make our own memories together!

What is your most proudest accomplishment?

I have 2. My first is the birth of my daughter. A birth of a child is the proudest happiest day ever. But, the second runner up would be graduating college. I did it. I accomplished something not everyone has. And I did it on my own. With the help of my ex husband. 


What about you?

My biggest regret... 

Man this is a hard one. I think my only regret I can think about is not going to college when I was younger. It would have been a lot easier and better financially if I went right after high school.

But I was young and wanted something more for my life... so I traveled on my own path and I will never regret that!
