Oh boy, a recent picture. I didn't think this would be so difficult. I've been looking thru my photos for 10 minutes to find one of me. Apparently I am always behind the camera because there are approximately 8000 photos of my kids, dozens of my husband, but only a handful of myself. I should try to fix that. 

Taken before attending an event for our oldest daughter.

Next up, 15 interesting facts. Maybe 15 random facts would be more appropriate. I lead a boring life.

1.  I have waaay too many purses. Yet as much as I'm trying to simplify my life lately and get rid of unnecessary stuff, my purses always make the cut.
2. I could eat Mexican food all day every day.
3. I am a master of procrastination. The more pressure I feel, the better I work. I love a deadline
4. I love nerdy stuff. Star Wars is high on my list. My oldest daughter is named Anakin for pete's sake.
5. I am the queen of budgeting.
6. I'm afraid of flying. As in shakes-sweats-nauseous-notify the Air Marshall-this lady is acting strangely- afraid!
7. I still have (day)dreams of being either a NASCAR driver or a ballerina.
8. I don't think there is anything natural about marriage. Man and woman living together in harmonious bliss? "That's not natural." It's friggin' hard work! When I hear of another couple divorcing I think "Wimps."
9. My husband is 6'7, I'm 5'1
10. I have huge feet for a short person. Size 9's on this body mean I was robbed of some height.
11. I was a homeless, pregnant, drug using, drug selling teen mom. Certainly not boasting about that. Just an example that you can overcome almost anything and my past does not define me.
12. I make 80's and 90's movies and TV references often. I try to include at least one in everyday conversation.
13. I think I'm funnier than I actually am.
14. I will hijack a Facebook page anytime I see the opportunity. I have no shame.
15. I can quote the movie Steel Magnolias for hours once I get started.

My sisters wrote that list.

I threw in a serious one  just to keep it real yo.
