11 Things about Me ... 

1. Above everything I am a Mom to two Beautiful Boys :) 

2.  I love my pets like they are family.. 3 cats and one dog.  My Boston Terrier had a leg removed years ago due to being hit by a 4-wheeler.  She's almost 7 years old now and my boys refer to her as their little sister LOL.

3.  I am TERRIFIED of thunderstorms and Tornadoes!  And have been as long as I can remember.  I'm an intelligent person and realize it is an irrational fear, but I just can't shake it.  I am still working on it though.

4.  I LOVE this time of year!! Fall, the leaves, the chilly smell in the air.  Not to mention, very little storms! lol   Pumpkins, Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping! 

5.  I'm almost 30 and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up lol.  I started majoring in math education.  Then I went to work at a Nursing Home and got me CNA.  Love it but not sure about finishing in nursing... 

6.  I have a 3rd degree brown belt in Shoa-lin karate.  I grew up in it because my dad taught it and I feel like it's in my blood.  I also have a yellow belt in Kempo.  

7.  I battle depression.  I'm currently not taking any medication for it but I have tried most of the types available.  It's hard.  

8.  I LOVE sweet tea!! 

9.  I've always wanted to write.  Articles, books, anything.  For some reason though I have the hardest time actually doing it lol.  I love Blogs, but I just have the hardest time writing them.  Hopefully I'll get the hang of it? :)

10.  I live in the mountains of eastern Ky and Love them!  I can't imagine living anywhere else!

11.  I have an obsession with Netflix!  I find a series (right now its Murder, She Wrote) and watch them ALL!! 

The 11 Questions Asked of ME by The Childless Stepmom.  I just picked one of the three :)

Hmm... I have a lot lol.  I think it has to be people who hang up without saying goodbye on the phone.  Just irks me haha.

Well, I kind of answered that one already.  If I had to choose somewhere else, I would pick New York. I'm not sure why exactly, but it intrigues me.

Sometimes.  I prefer a chai latte or hot tea.  I wish I loved coffee as much as some people do. :)
