a speed date with me

Trip to DC 2010 096

Wanted to know more about me? Lucky you! Today, we're going on a speed date:

I was born in New York

I grew up in Southern California and Las Vegas

I met my husband when I was 16 years old

I have a BA in Psychology and I don't owe a penny in student loans. I only went to school when I had the money, a grant or a scholarship. It took about 5 years to finish

My husband served 8 years in the Marine Corps and is now in college (and was just accepted to TCU!!)

I am pro-life and am very vocal about it. I believe we need to do something about it and don't mind a good debate

I've been thrifting since I was a kid and its one of my favorite things to do, ever

I love a good deal. Because I'm ridiculously frugal

Jesus saved me when I was 12. He's been changing me every day since then, for the better.

I haven't worked outside the home in over 5 years, and I'm proud of it.

When I was growing up I wanted to be a waitress, a teacher, a county coroner, a forensic psychologist, a fashion designer and a politician (yikes!). Once I earned my degree, the only thing I wanted to be was a mom. 3 years later, the Lord blessed me with that position.
