My BLC46 Fuschia Beauties teammates keep reading my page and posting the same info about me, so I thought I'd update it!

Hailing from Corpus Christi, TX, I married a handsome Naval Aviator and moved around the world. We've been stationed in Texas, Virginia, Utah, Arizona, Japan and since retiring have moved to California. We've spent a good amount of time on Florida's Redneck Riviera, also.

I have a degree in Biology from Texas A& M and a Masters in Education from Regent University. My favorite things to do in college were to make friends and hang out. I loved working in the field - I've caught lots of animals: several species of mice, bats, fish, stingrays, frogs, and even a vole once! Thank goodness I was never sprayed by a skunk, but I have had my share of ticks and chiggers!

I like to learn. I read about different diets and health, religion, politics, history and archaeology, and cats, to name a few.

My favorite past times are Trivial Pursuit, darts, wine tasting, impressing my husband with my cooking, singing and dancing. I'm also trying to up my Scrabble game so I can beat my husband.

We have 4 cats which are just a riot. Except Princess. I call her Dark Overload. She's pretty, but seems a bit ditzy. Can cats be ditzy?

My favorite flowers are birds of paradise, hydrangeas, gardenias and then hibiscus. I have a special love of sand dollars. Always have. Seeing them broken breaks my heart.

I miss the beach and wish I could drag the family out to the coast. Texas is nice and warm. California beaches are cold. Boo! I enjoyed the beaches in Florida and Virginia and North Carolina...wait, I've been to the beach in South Carolina, too. And Mexico and Japan. I didn't realize it was that bad...

Sunshine makes my happy and rain makes me relaxed. I miss Texas thunderstorms!

I can't wait to learn about YOU!!!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog! When I was unemployed, I used to do a Goal & Gratitude blog daily. Now that I'm working and in school, I try to do one 3 times per week. It's a nice way to get my thoughts down on "paper" even if only a few other people read and comment. Our stores still are not very well stocked. TP is available only if you get there early and are willing to pay a premium. Same with Kleenex and paper towels. Cleaning supplies are non-existent. I hope I'm able to find dish soap at the end of the month, or I may resort to using hand soap to clean my dishes!

    emoticon Life is short, live it.
    emoticon Love is rare, grab it.
    emoticon Anger is bad, dump it.
    emoticon Fear is awful, face it.
    emoticon Memories are sweet, cherish them.

    One of the best gifts you can give someone is thanking them for being part of your life.
    Thank you for a great BLC 42 experience.
