I’m Vintage Today

Ok, so I have been vintage for a while. Today is my birthday, so I thought I would share a little you may or may not know about me.


I was born and raised in the Lone Star State (that’s Texas)

I am stronger than people think, even myself sometimes

I love the smell of freshly sharpen pencils

My favorite scent other than babies is freesia and garden roses

I love Philippine Mango’s

I’m quite chatty

I’m an interrupter, it’s rude, I need to work on that (although it’s mostly from excitement in certain subjects)

I love blue, all shades, except primary blue, I’d take ANY color over that shade of blue

I have an inner pirate/sailor, an infatuation with nautical things

I love water….born from it, reborn in it, love to swim and good at it, find being under water extremely relaxing and calm

When I am super stressed , a long hot bath helps

I stress easily

I like horses and woodland animals

I make realllllly good french toast and potato soup

My Dad died when I was 7

I have three sisters and two step sisters (no brothers)

I enjoy reading my Bible

I lived a really sheltered life until the age of 12 (the year I moved from my birth town and started public school)

I like to dance ( a lot)

If i laugh too hard, I snort

My younger sister and I can make each other laugh by laughing and the find it hard to stop (sometimes it catches onto my mom)

My Mom is my hero

I stand up for myself and my littles and don’t regret it

I am anemic (although not severe)

I like being nice

My life has had many, many bumps, but it has had many, many highs that became even higher after I had children

Here is a pretty list I put together as a birthday wish list , not that I need these things but the things you like say a lot about yourself too.


Hope your week starts off terrific.
