I grew up in the country and I loved every minute of it! I had two older sisters and a younger brother. I am pretty sure I was the favorite. Although my siblings probably thought they were too.
(See? I have ALWAYS loved chocolate!)
I pretty much had zero fashion sense from the get go. I ran around like a wild child constantly getting dirty and pulling out any elastic or accessory my mom could put in my hair. She eventually gave up and cut it like a boy when I was 3. I loved bugs!!! I collected them, dead or alive. I so many animals in my room you would have thought it was a pet store. Gerbils, fish, birds, frogs, etc. My mom put her foot down when I wanted a tarantula though. I bawled for weeks!
I don’t really wear makeup. For church sometimes and when I am going on a date with my hubby. I wore mascara sometimes in high school. I always wore blush though. I am VERY pale and everyone was always thinking I was sick. I got called casper several time too.
(I didn’t even wear it when I graduated with my associates)
I met my hubby while in college. He was quite the man on campus. He had tons of girls chasing him (sometimes literally!). I had never gone after a guy. It wasn’t my style. I can be aggressive in other areas but not with that. Turns out he didn’t like forward women :) We married young. He was 24 and I was almost 21. When you know it is right, why wait???
When I was 15 my dad died of cancer. It was one of the hardest things I have had to deal with. I was a daddy’s girl. A tom boy who loved to follow him around and “help” him. Even though it has been a long time, I still ache for ONE more conversation with him. I still feel jipped that my husband and kids don’t know him. He was hilarious and the life of the party. He had a temper (that I inherited) and was stubborn as a mule (which is probably why he loved and had mules) but was the most generous person I have ever known. He was always helping other with time and money. Man! I could go on and on! But I feel lucky that I know I will get to see him again one day.
Well, as Shrek put it, those are some of my onion layers. I think you should do a post like this and link it up over at Amy’s. I LOVE reading about other bloggers. It is fun :)
