What do you admire most about your friends?

I admire that they are ALL different in their own way.
I love each and every one of them for that reason!


I admire how they live their lives for themselves and no one else. I admire how they are unique in their own way. 


I have some amazing friends. And boy am I extremely blessed!

What would you do if you only had one month to live?

I would spend every second I had with my family and friends. I would take a trip that I have always wanted to take and I would make sure everyone knew how much they meant to me.

I mean, I kind of do all the above minus the trips now... it would just be more noticeable!

What would you do if there were no laws in this world?

I don't think that would change one thing that I would do. I am not a rule breaker, so I would live my life the exact same way!

Write about a week that you can recall that was your favorite week of all time:

I am going to say the birth of my kiddo. What an amazing experience! I am so blessed... I had an emergency c-section, but she was one of the highlights of my life! And the week was great because my mom was in town. She stayed for 5 weeks.

What Superhero power would you choose?

FLYING

By far flying wins out over everything else.

I would love to be able to get up early and fly to my mom's house and visit with her while she drinks her coffee in the morning and then fly home to get ready for work and to start my day. That would be the perfect life!

Your favorite gift of all time... 

I have 2 different gifts that are my favorite. 

My wedding ring is my number 1 favorite gift of all time. It is so beautiful and my husband worked hard to provide it for me. 

My car would also be another favorite. I have never had a new car in my life and having a new car makes me so proud of what my husband and I have accomplished in our life time together. I can't wait to see what our future holds!

If you had to give up one of your five senses, which one would it be?

Hmmm... 
Taste
Sight
Touch
Smell

Sound

I can't imagine giving up sight or sound at all. So, those 2 are out. I can't imagine touching people or things. I am a hugger. I need my arms and hands to do that.

It would have to be between Taste and Smell.

And I am going to say smell. I have lived a long time with allergy symptoms and not being able to smell. I want to be able to taste the delicious things they have in this world.

What is your definition of happiness?

My definition of happiness is being able to smile no matter what is going on in your life. Smiling is the best thing you can do... Happiness defined is also my family.... my husband, and my kiddos - they bring me so much happiness!

Who you love most in the world?

Other than my kiddo and my parents, it would be my husband. This question is fitting on today since it is our 6 year anniversary today. He loves me unconditionally and I love him the same. Life is really great right now!

Your first kiss?

A neighborhood boy. We were playing hide and seek and we just got it out of the way.

What would you say to your childhood crush?

Not a word. I am sure he didn't even bat an eye at me growing up. I am thankful for the way my life has turned out. So, I would not say anything to him!

If you could change your life, would you?

I am going to go with no.
I mean there are parts of my life, I wish I could redo just because of the outcome, but then again I don't wish I could redo it... I learned from every part of my life. Even the bad times, hard times, depressing times, embarrassing times... They all shaped me into the person I am today and if I didn't have those moments, I don't think I would be ME... And I am not perfect, but I love ME!

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?

I look up to my daddy. He is a very hard working man. He always has been and I believe he always will be. He is always on the go. I hope that I make him proud every day!

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!

Do you remember your last dream? What was it about?

What would make your life complete?

I think having our own house and watching our girls grow up into beautiful women and have kids of their own would make my life feel complete!

Your life story in one paragraph and GO:

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!
