Like... what's your job?
I read a lot of your blogs, but don't really know what your professional life is, where you are across the US, etc... lets get some background on you peoples.
I am 30 (going to be 31 in one week-ish). I met my husband and started dating him my senior year of high school. Fear not, we didn't get married then. He's a year younger than I am. We went to separate colleges. I graduated with a degree in psych, sociology and religious studies. My parents asked what I was going to do with that... my response... ummmmmmmmm?? So I moved home and painted my room bright yellow. Then I went to grad school and left them to deal with the room about 1.5 months later.
The first time I went to GA was when my mom and I went to find me an apartment. I moved to Georgia by myself, found the 2nd love of my life (Gizmo), and found and relished in the glory of living by myself. I got my MDiv at Emory University in 2005. I got married in Jan of 2005. We moved back to Texas in 2007. I thought that's what I wanted, and I did, but I seriously miss GA. A lot. We're still 3 hours from home, but way easier than being 13. This drive doesn't even include the directions of get on I-20 and drive through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Turn right on 287 and you're home. Now I get on 35 head north and exit LEFT onto 287. Huge difference.
Before all of that I grew up in a small town, lived down the street from my grand parents and aunt and uncle, with my parents and my sister. My favorite thing is church camp (both from growing up and directing it now), I have a severe love for eating and working out. I loved gymnastics and cheer leading and would totally pay to see NKOTB right now.
Now I work with Methodist clergy across the state of Texas. It's truly an amazing job. We had a baby in July, I'm ready to move closer to family. I have a desire to own a clothing boutique called the A-List (hence the title of the blog) where we sell absolutely cute things that are under $100 (except jeans.)
I don't understand mean-ness. I don't get why people are mean to others. I have a love of sarcasm that is my language of love. When I'm uncomfortable, I laugh. When I'm awkward I realize it and usually become more so. I'm a marketers dream. You tell me your shampoo will make my hair curly, I'll try it. Make my skin smooth, let me buy it. I believe mascara makes you dramatic and glamorous. If in doubt, put on more. I have an obsession with eye brows, but don't use hairspray.
These are small glimpses of me.
