Thanks for stopping by today as I celebrate my 32nd birthday. In honor of my birthday I am listing 32 things about me. After that, I am celebrating my birthday by giving away presents to you.
I love birthdays
I have three girls, Nadia (3), Madelyn (6), Taylor (8)
I have a degree in Mass Communications.
I have been married to an amazing man (Chad) for nine years.
I love to travel. (I have been to Hawaii four times in the last nine years)
I became a Christian when I was 25 years old.
My dream is to own a cottage on the beach someday.
I learned recently that I love riding horses.
I am scared to death of rattlesnakes and sharks. (Yet I live in rattlesnake country and I love to snorkel)
I am a Stay at Home Mom. I was a working mom until my youngest was 6 months old.
I am a speed reader. I love to read and sometimes ignore my family until I finish a good book.
I love public speaking.
I love Children’s Literature. My kids could seriously open a library right out of their bedroom.
I am a middle child and have all of the characteristics of one.
I have lived in South Dakota my entire life.
My parents still live in the house I lived in throughout my childhood.
I have no pets, yet all things furry love to take refuge in my backyard.
The one place I told my husband I would never move to is exactly where I live. Crazy thing is I love it!
I am domestically challenged. I can find just about any reason not to clean my house.
Since I have been married I have never owned a dishwasher.
I love chocolate.
I am going to attempt my second 1/2 marathon in October and I haven’t even started training yet, Yikes!
I love throwing fun parties for my kids and all of their friends.
I am a girl scout leader.
I love to scrapbook, but am so behind I am a little overwhelmed with it all.
Two things I really want to do in my 32nd year of life is start learning to play the guitar and re-learn how to use a sewing machine.
I really dislike vegetables, but I am trying really hard to like them and add them to my families menu.
My husband (a banker) really likes to save money and I really like to spend it. (I think we compliment each other quite well)
Both my parents and my husband’s parents are still married.
I love New York City and wish I could visit there every single year.
Someday I hope to be published.
My MacBook is the best toy I have ever owned.
What am I giving away. . .
First of all, my all-time favorite devotional, (that I blog about a lot), My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers. This book was given to me about 7 years before I became a Christian. It has had a huge impact on my faith journey.
Next on the list, The Shack by William P. Young. This is a great book that I recently read. I think everyone should read it!
Third is a scrapbook kit by Made Simple. It has 12 papers: 6 designs, 2 sticker sheets and 1 sheet dimensionals. (I would include a picture but I am away from home and I forgot my USB cable for my camera.
Finally, a subscription to Family Fun Magazine. My all-time favorite. This is a magazine that every mom should own.
