Tell me about yourself...

So I feel like I kinda know you gals/guy, but I would love to know more about you. Tell us all something about yourself we all don't know. It can be diet/not diet related. I just thought it would be fun for everyone to get to know each other a little better?! Maybe you all have done something like this while I was ignoring the fact that I was getting fat again? Tell us something anyway.

I love polka dots. I have for years. Not too sure why, but I love em'. I am 29 (for another couple months at least) and married with 3 kids. I homeschool my oldest while the other 2 run around crazily playing. I love the Lord. No real interests or hobbies. Yeah, that's about it. What about you people?

Good idea, Nikki!
My mind's gone blank, but I'll be back :)

I'm (shhhhhh) 37, going on 38 in a couple of months. I have a 4 year old daughter and will have been married 11 years in a couple of weeks.
I enjoy scrapbooking...didn't really get into this until I had my daugher.
I'm also a software developer.
And there you have it....

I'm 32...33 in May. I have 2 awesome boys ages 5 and 12. The Lord has blessed me with a great job and I FINALLY live in my hometown again!! YAY. And today I woke up to frozen pipes. :-(

There is so much I love to do. I love being with family and friends...even if we are doing nothing at all. Goofy fact: Since moving home... I've helped my dad cut wood and found that I LOVE to use a chainsaw!! LOL

Great idea, Nikki.

Nikki said...

ChristyF, that's goofy alright! Maybe even CRAZY!

I am 54, married for 31 years and have 3 daughters, Bekki, Debs who are both on here and HP who sometimes comments. HP is getting married this year so that is giving us plenty to organise. I am a dyslexia specialist teacher who works part time.
I was a full time mum for 18 years and feel very priveleged to have had that chance. However I didn't home school. I think it was virtually unheard of here in the UK when my girls started school. It is more common now and I know a few families who do, still very much in the minority though even in church circles. I think I would have the confidence to do it now but I certainly didn't at the relevant time.
I am a Christian. I enjoy crosswords, swimming, singing and reading children's books (they are shorter and I have to keep up with my pupils - that's my excuse anyway).
My car sadly died just before Christmas but I bought a new (to me) one yesterday and will pick it up next week. I can't wait.

Well its good to know all of you better! Thanks.

Hi Y'all!
I am a Christian, 33, and live in Waco, TX with my husband (Bird) 2 sons (9 and 7) and daughter (5 in Feb.)

I graduated from Baylor with a major in special ed. and have taught and been an ABA therapist for children who have autism for several years. I now do that "on the side" as I am a stay-at-home mom who homeschools and I am so blessed to be able to do so (thank you, God and Bird!)

I reached my goal weight on this site and went on to maintain. Now I am steadily gaining in anticipation of the birth of our 4th child in June. I feel him/her kick all of the time now and it's the coolest thing!

Interesting factiod: I had to have C-sections with my first two and was able to have a non-medicated VBAC with my daughter...praying for another with this one.

I love to cook and read...and laugh! ;-)

Nikki said...

Wow Brandi that is great. Our hospital here won't allow v-bac's here. You are so blessed to be able to do that! How many weeks are you now?

Brandi said...

I'm 18 weeks...so you mean they won't let you plan a VBAC or they will perform a C-section against your will?

Debs said...

I am 26 (I just wrote 24, and then thought, hang on a min ,that's totally wrong!)I'll be 27 in May.

I started out at 294lb, and today I was 223.6.
I've been as low as 205 ish, but put on a bit of weight in the last few months.

At the moment I look after two adorable children 2 days a week.
I'm job hunting for something that will pay a bit more..!
I'm also trying to figure out just what it is I want to do with my life.

I've met the man that I want to marry, and he wants to marry me too, so that's good ;) So just watch this space!

Nikki said...

What? Where was I? You met the man you want to marry???Tell us about him!

Hmm, one way to announce it to the world, Debs! I take it you're not officially engaged yet?

Debs said...

no, not officially.
I was just in an announcing sort of mood!
