About Me

UPDATE 6/14/2012 -I have been admitted to the hospital for a serious infection in my head, ear, neck. With extreme pain and swelling... I am sorry that I do not have any swaps up at the moment and hippie for your understanding. Not sure how long it will be before I can get back into the dwi.gd of things. Much regards, Trayce

UPDATE: 5/15/2012 - I am extremely busy for the next few weeks trying to gather everything for my lawyer, I will be going to court to try to get disability that is very much needed. Which is making me extremely tired and hard to keep up from day to day. So I will only be hosting a few photo swaps this month so that they do not get over whelming and or on the back burner as I do take this very serious and want to have fun and not have it be "work". Thank you for understanding the need to back off for a few weeks here.

I am a 43 year old mother of 2 beautiful children. Our daughter is 20 years old and our son is 13 years old.

I am a wife to a very amazing man whom is Australian. At times I consider myself an single, married, parent, as my husband is a Professional Truck Driver. I grew up with my family in this profession before he even became one, so I had a clue how to live this life style. However, when he is home, he is my world and other things get dropped for the short time frame my man is home.

I have Three Dogs and Two Cats. Every animal that we have had is a rescue animal. I received the love of animals from my great grandmother, and my son has received it from me. He is so sensitive that when the ASPCS commercial comes on he has to leave the room so that he doesn't tear up, so he keeps his manhood about himself.

I like girly/girly things but it does not have to be high end for me to enjoy it. For example I would enjoy a homemade facial mask vs. a expensive cream that does not work on my face. That being said, I love the Arbonne Brand that is all natural and works well for me.

Personally, I Love animals, Photography, Cooking, America, Australia, Italy, Ireland, France/Paris/Eiffel Tower, Wine, White Sandy Beaches. I love candles, and tarts. I love going on dates with my hubby and spending time with the family. My version of fishing with the family is bring a beach chair and soaking up sun and bring my camera and taking photographs. I love going to Farmers Markets and Street Fairs, I love the city and the country they each bring their own enjoyment and photo opportunities. I love muscle cars and have a 2002 GT Mustang.

One Fact about me: I have been in a very serious car accident years back that has me left dealing with internal injuries/pain on a daily basis in my neck and back (One tiny fall could turn my world upside down because, I could become a quadriplegic). So, when cooking or doing things, I need tools that help me not work so hard at what ever it is that I am attempting to do, and to relieve any stress as that effects my body and my memory loss problems. I bend over backwards to write things down and set alarms. However, a few things slip past me, so if in doubt please feel free to ask me, just in case I plain old forgot.

I Love coffee, tea, hot cocoa drinks, (sugar free is preferred), however if the others are sent other family members can drink it.

Favorite Music

I like the top 40's, 80's, 90's some country, some techno.

Favorite Books

I listen to Audio books with my husband on the road, Harry Potter, A Clash of Kings.

Favorite Movies

Back to the future I, II, III James Bond LakeHouse NoteBook

Favorite Television

Cooking Shows Triple D NCIS CIS of Miami HouseWifes

Favorite Crafts

Cooking, my mother bought me a 5 quart kitchen aid and I have been baking and cooking and having fun I want to learn to decorate cupcakes and cakes and make pastries & I just started to take up crocheting of wash clothes only, my hands get swollen and hurt for days when doing just one...But could use black and red (true red not pink orange or blueish) 100% cotton yarn.

I want to do something creative with my photography and give it that edge, something fun and cute and vintage looking. Not sure yet if you have any suggestion please feel free to message me. OH I just discovered ATC cards too :>)
