Okay Kelly, I Will Give This a Try!

So, I read Kelly’s Korner (http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/) and she always does this Show Us Your Life Friday post. Of course, I have always wanted to link up but I never have until now. . .

This is me:

Just a Day at the Office

Well, let me show you another one. . .

Letting my hair down

I am 36 (Gasp!) and single. Never been married, engaged or the like. I am a Christian that has struggled with my faith from time to time. I am 5″1″ and there is a whole lot of random facts on the 100 Things About Me page but let me give you a snapshot.

I love to cook but can’t clean worth a darn. I am pretty open and honest, trusting to the point where I have gotten hurt in the past. I love to laugh, especially at myself and am about as graceful as a minute old foul. Yep, I trip over everything including my feet. I read all the time, help my friends when they need some help and would take in any and every animal if I had room and if my cat would tolerate it.

I love football and cannot wait for the season to start again. I currently live in Chattanooga, TN but my heart is still in Nashville. I am the last single gal of my friends and they are kind to let me third wheel with them often. When I travel, I prefer to hit NYC and DC just so I can eat my way through the city.

And here is the upfront part and gentlemen, I know this scares the crap out of you but hey, I have gotten to the age where being upfront tends to put everyone’s expectations in line. I want to get married and have children. I love kids and have a ball with my friends’ kids. I don’t want to just get married for the sake of getting married though.

I want a mate that will have my back, laugh at me and with me, willing to share the remote from time to time as well as willing to go see a chick flick. In return, I will do the same. It is all about love, respect, being their for the other person and being honest. Oh, I also have friends who happen to be male but don’t let that bother you because it really is just a friend thing.

I also do not mind embarrassing myself when the moment is called on, so I will leave you with last year’s Halloween costume for work. I was Mary Katherine Gallagher and I think I rocked it. I do an awesome Super Star and yes, I sniffed my armpits at work for good measure; had to make sure I was really in character that day!

I was put in timeout, one of the departments was a daycare center.

So there you have it in a nutshell, you have any questions, I will answer them. And if this gets me a date? Kelly I so owe you!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
