It's MY Birthday!!!

Good Morning Lovelies!

I have to honestly say that I don't feel 32. I can remember when I thought 32 was SOO-OOO old. While, at times, the number creates a slight panic throughout me; I take joy in living to celebrate another birthday.  To have fun with this joyous day.. I thought it would be fun to tell you all 32 things about myself that you may or may not already know. Ready?

  1. I am married to a Sailor
  2. I have a Great Dane named Gideon {means Mighty Warrior}
  3. Gideon got his name from a character on Criminal Minds
  4. I have a Pomeranian named Grizzly.
  5. Grizzly owns my heart.
  6. I have two cats; Spice & Sprinkles.
  7. I have an obsession with G names for my dogs & S names for my cats.
  8. I was born in Jacksonville, Texas.
  9. I moved to Oklahoma when I was 20.
  10. I moved to California right before my 29th birthday.
  11. I own a Toyota Corolla
  12. I want a Ford Edge or a Jeep Patriot
  13. My Corolla was a birthday present from my Dad on my 25th; it was the last gift I got from him before he passed away.
  14. I'm a coffee addict
  15. I'm a little obsessed with Starbucks.
  16. I collect Holiday Barbies & Holiday Barbie ornaments.
  17. I love working out.
  18. I want to own a bakery one day.

  22. I love to cook 
  23. I try to be very organized
  24. The beach calms me 
  25. I have to sleep with a fan on me; even if it's 20*
  26. I have been battling infertility for 6 years.
  27. I was adopted at an early age
  28. I was reunited with my biological family

  30. I'm slightly addicted to pinterest
  31. I'm in love with Carrie Underwood & Reese Witherspoon
  32. This is my last year to try & have a baby.

Those are 32nd fun & personal facts about my life. It has been life full of ups & down. To say my life is drama free would be a HUGE lie. Nobody knows what cards our future holds.. but I would like to encourage everyone to do at least five things.

*Love your friends & family with all your heart & allow yourself to be loved back.
*Be true to yourself NO MATTER WHAT
*Volunteer your time to something much greater then yourself.
*Try something new; it could change your whole world.
*Adopt a pet when you are able ... it's one of lives true blessings.

Here is to a wonderful birthday & a new year to celebrate life, friends & family.. CHEERS!
