I'm in my mid thirties, mother of three kids, 2 dogs and a cat. I love to cook as long as I can con someone else into cleaning up my mess. Scrapbooking is a hobby of mine, I wish I had more time for that one. Update: 5/29/04 My s.o. asked me to marry him! OMG! So, yes, I'm engaged now. I will update this page as the plans move along. :) (giggle) Update 6/17/04 I have the dress now, here's a picture, but I'm going to try to find a better one, because the gown is REALLY gorgeous http://www.thebridalshop.com/gz43212.htm (this link no longer takes you to a picture of my gown 5/19/05) Date and location of wedding to follow soon! I'm so excited! Update 11/9/04 Wow, time flies! My fiance and I were married on October 31, in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was incredible! Hopefully I will be able to post some photos soon; the resort was too beautiful for words! I have updated my name too! :) Update 5/4/05 Woo hoo! We're having a baby! Okay, yes, we've known for 3 months now; I'm just now getting around to updating this. We're due October 8 (almost an anniversary gift), and hoping for a girl. Keep your fingers crossed and think pink! Update 11/30/05 Wow, where does the time go? Lily Jade will be 8 weeks old on Friday. She was born October 7, 2005 at 9:25 AM. She weighed 7 lbs, 9 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is the most beautiful baby girl I've ever seen; her daddy and I just cried and cried when she was born. Pictures will follow. For the first three weeks, dad took a picture every time her outfit was changed. We carry the camera in the diaper bag. Update 4/26/06 Lily is 6 months old. She'll be 7 months old in 11 days. I can't believe how the time is flying. She is sitting by herself, and trying to pull herself up to things and scooting around the floor in reverse. She has her two bottom front teeth coming in, and is the most adorable baby in the world. (unbiased mommy opinion, here). For more pictures of Lily, check out my website. I'll add more as time allows. Ain't she the cutest of the cutes? Update 10/16/06: Our beautiful little princess turned 1 on the 7th. She's simply the most amazing little girl (imnsho). Lily has been walking for over 2 months now, has 7 teeth and a vocabulary of about 20 words. Yep, she's a baby genius! :) Update 6/28/07: It seems like only yesterday La Princessa was born, now she is a fiercely independent young lady, who has no qualms in telling you "I do it." Precious, precious girl growing up so fast. I'm sure it sounds like the other two children in the house are ignored, but my son is 14; no longer cuddly, and possesses a very impressive roller coaster set of emotions. My step son will be 17 in 3 months, so of course he is an "adult" now, and the rest of the household is not worthy of his time or attention. Ahh, teenagers and toddlers, now that's a lovely combination. ;) I'm also no longer in my "mid" thirties. Yikes, how does this happen?
