This is Me

hello all I  always do Time to eat Saturdays but today I am going to share a few things. Good, bad random and ugly.

I live in a small town and this year turned the big 30 (sigh). I am the oldest of 3 girls all L's. I was raised on a tobacco farm and it was amazing!  I met my husband when was 20 and married at 23.
I have 3 fur babies 1. Bo my dog (who is also bobo and to me roo) is it my 8 year old baby and I love him to pieces! Toby (my cat) is my second  at just over 3 years and Sophie is the baby at about 1 and a half. my husband found her at the house he is working on for us starving at about 4-6 months old.

My husband loves me the good bad and ugly and thankfully puts up will all my faults. Love you B! My sisters are my best friends. My mom is everything! She is my heart and I would be nothing without her. My Dad is my Maverick and I am told constantly I am like him.
My favorites: Music country! Love Garth, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sugarland, Gary Allen and the list goes on!
Current favorite song: Remind Me!!!
All time favorites: The Dance, Paint me a Birmingham and A Rose Shall Bloom (I love this hymn)

Movies: okay am weird totally random here! Top Gun, Pollyanna, You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, Con Air, Grease, Kate and Leopold, The Marine, Sleeping Beauty and Elf.

Colors: Black, Purple and Sage

Food: Potatoes

Things I love: Reading, Crafts, Makeup

Random Facts: Hated high school some of my worst years. Vegetarian for 3 1/2 years now, Princess House Consultant, Love QVC, love all things Disney but my favorite is sleeping beauty. Anything old I adore! shows, furniture, books. I collect thimbles, willow tree angels and all things Christmas!
Oh and just fyi cutting my hair not an option I plan to be the old lady with the grey bun!

Biggest Faults: Smoker (yes I know I have to quit) I am totally obsessive about my weight and never satisfied with how I look. When it comes to things I care about I have a very short fuse.

The Hard Facts: brief and may go more in depth later on these.
At 21 my kidneys shut down due to an eating disorder that started when I was 18
At 23 - 15 days after becoming engaged Bryan was in a head on collision and broke his back... long road
We have no children not by choice we have even done IUI with no success.

There this is me... in a nutshell


  1. Well it was nice to find out more about you. My husband is a smoker too. I know it's hard to quit. I think you are gorgeous!

  2. It's amazing how tragedies and problems that can pull people apart can also bring them together - it sounds like you guys have already weathered a couple of storms. That should give you a lot of strength to power through the next couple challenges (*cough* STOPPING SMOKING *cough*).

    And I'm not sure if you read this already, but Charlotte over at The Great Fitness Experiment blogs a lot about balancing health and fitness when dealing with an eating disordered past. Might make for interesting reading...

  3. Wow, thanks so much for sharing such personal details about what makes you YOU! Hugs girl!

  4. This is such an awesome and real post. I used to smoke-- very difficult to quit. You can do it. Thanks for sharing more about YOU!

  5. great post, loved learning more about you since I just recently started following your blog. I love the song Paint Me A Birmingham haha and I cracked up about being the old lady with the grey bun, I can't imagine ever having short old lady hair so I'll be right there with ya!

    so glad you and your husband have overcome those situation, but sorry that you had to go through them. I look forward to reading more about them if you choose to do a more in-depth post!

  6. I loved this post! Sounds like your marriage is very strong :)

  7. Im the same about my weight. I think you are fabulous and I heart the L sisters :)

  8. So sorry about your difficulties conceiving. My husband and I have been trying for over a year now. It can be so disheartening, so I can only imagine how difficult it was to be unsuccessful with IUI. So yeah...just sending some sympathy.

  9. Thanks you for being so real! Stay strong in your journey to parenthood.

  10. love hearing people's personal stories! thanks for sharing :)

  11. Oh I love you for posting such a real entry! This was great to get to know you better. I'm praying for you on the quitting smoking and building your family!

  12. I like your descriptions. Especially about Daddy. Haha!!! You KNOW he'll love that :) And you are totally going to be the old lady with the gray bun threatining anyone who comes close with scissors! Your love of potatoes..Daddy always said you should've been named Spud! LOVE YOU!

    Now stop smoking.
