5 Out of 100

Since this blog is newer for me I thought it might be fun to list 5 things about me as a way to introduce myself.... I will be adding posts like this every once in a while.

Here it goes:

1. I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls. There names are Emma (11) and Kaitlyn (8) They are so much fun but a lot of work. They make me laugh all the time. They are really messy. They have each other and I am grateful for that. I don't know what I would do without MY sister. I hope they realize what they have and hang on to it with both hands.

2. I am married to my best friend Sean. We met each other when we worked nights at Wells Fargo years ago. He is very considerate. He also makes me laugh (A LOT) which is probably where my kids get it. He loves sports and poker. We have a lot in common, like we both enjoy weird movies and just relaxing at home. We both love to play video and board games. We are both very competitive. When meeting Sean you would never guess these things because he comes off as quiet and conservative. He isn't in to politics (neither am I). He is very clever and likes to play practical jokes. He is the best!!

3. I actually really enjoy my job. (for the most part) I work at a local credit union. It is very small and in a great neighborhood. I enjoy the members that come in and chat. They really make my day so much easier. I learn so much about people and they make me laugh. I feel like some are great friends. I know what is going on in some of there lives and they ask about mine. I am very social. Coming from a job previously where every one is always screaming and yelling at you it is a relief. There are a few things I would change about the job going on behind the scenes but for the most part I really like it.

4. I LOVE food but hate to cook. This is a good and bad thing. I really enjoy all different kinds of food and my husband is a wonderful cook. He doesn't realize the talent he has. I always tell him we should open a restaurant. The bad thing is it makes me fat! I have no self control when it comes to good food. Especially pizza and sweets (my favorites). I really hate cooking though so if Sean isn't around I am pretty lazy about feeding myself.  

5. I call my mom everyday. I really do. If I don't call my mom everyday she wonders if something is wrong. Like I said in an earlier post she really is the best. I look foreword to calling her and she always is very encouraging and helpful. She would do anything for us and my kids adore her. She is creative and we like a lot of the same girly movies. She is a strong woman and has set a wonderful example for me and my sister. I couldn't have asked for a better mom and hope she realizes how much I appreciate all she does for me. Not everyone has the same relationship with their mom and I am fortunate to have the one I have with my mom.
This post is really long... Sorry about that. 
Have a great day!!
