Heeeyyyy, Sexy Lady!

Or, hey party people!
And by party people, I mean all you awesome people who for some reason follow and read my blog.

For those of you who are a bit new around here, welcome!
When I start reading a new blog, one of the first things I do is check out their fun "about me" posts.  And since it's been a bit since I've done a little factoid post about moi, I feel like this is the perfect time.  After all, you should all know about the person behind the blog...skeletons and all.

1: My two absolute favorite television shows are The Walking Dead and Friends.  I can {and do} pull quotes from Friends as applicable to daily life as often as possible.  Also, my husband and I are soooo Monica & Chandler.

2:  My favorite color is purple.  I own very few purple things.

3:  I have too many purses & reusable shopping bags.  I haven't counted purses in awhile {and I did recently purge my collection a bit}, but it's well over 20.  And I buy a new shopping bag nearly each time I go shopping {since I always leave them at home...}, and I shop a lot...

4:  I have a lot of tattoos.  I'm working on a calf sleeve & a half sleeve on my arm.  Plus a bunch of others.  Like Betty the sugar skull on my wrist, accompanied by my part of the song lyric my husband and I got tattooed for our wedding, "I'll be the fire."  Ooooh, and my new pink diamond on my if you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it finger.

5:  I finally married my soulmate on May 11, 2013.  {so we're super newlyweds}  I now have a nearly 11 year old stepdaughter.  The next few years will be terrifying, if her father's teenage years are any indication of how hers will be...  

6:  I live in Western New York.  It's kind of great - a short drive to the beach in summer, ski/snowboard in winter, and a short drive to great campgrounds and national parks.  But I live in a tiny town, and there's fields on both sides of my house...so outside it always smells like manure.  Ahh, farming.

7:  I'm kind of obsessed with decorating my home.  I'm constantly on the lookout for cool knick-knacks and artIn addition, I own seven couches.  {seriously, i don't even know how that happened but they're all here...though mostly in my basement}

8:  I love scrapbooking, jewelry making, sewing...my hobbies have taken over a few rooms of my tiny abode.

9:  I believe the movie Elf is a perfect representation of how people should feel every day.  That every day is magic, and everything is amazing...

10:  I am a size 14.  Up around 190 pounds.  This is the most I've ever weighed...and it's the happiest I've ever been in my life.  I am finally in a place in my life where I am happy with what I see in the mirror {at least 90% of the time, which is  a damn lot}, and I don't care if you think I'm fat.  I know I am a bit overweight.  And I'm cool with that.  I have a husband, a family.  Friends for like ever.  And I no longer feel like I have to be "skinny" to fit in, because I've finally found who I'm supposed to be.

Yay for purposeful happiness! :)
(Also the fact that you're only a size 14 at that weight is AWESOME! I'm a size 16 at 170 lbs, and sometimes I forget that size and weight have no correlation to each other, and even 2 people the same height and weight will have different body shapes....hence the importance of embracing your own uniqueness. Thank you for that reminder).

I totally agree-- The Wallking Dead is the best show on tv right now!
