Leave Me A Comment Swap


My name is Wendy, nice to meet you =) I see your husband is stationed at the Pentagon, I guess that means you are living in the DC area now. I grew up in Rockville, MD. My parents still live there and one of my younger sisters lives in the Dupont Circle area. DC is a great city but it wasn't really for me, so I came out here to Arizona for college and have stayed. I do miss Maryland sometimes, especially in the spring and fall. We don't really get seasons here, we get two times in Arizona: "Hot" and "REALLY Hot" =)

CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss and fitness! That's amazing that you started out 60 pounds over your target weight and are now running 5ks. I wish I could do that. My body just isn't cooperating with me though.

You list "Blink" as one of your favorite books-- is that the one by Malcom Gladwell? I really liked that too, as well as "The Tipping Point". If you haven't read that yet, you might want to check it out. It's very interesting.

Well before I leave you a whole novel here, I will say goodbye and just leave you this sparkly blue fairy =)

Best Wishes, Wendy


freckleface on Aug 23, 2009:

I too want to say congradulations on the weightloss, comming from someone who has been battling her weight since I was 8 I know its a lifelong issue. We have a few things in common actually my husband is ex-army, I love tea cups and tea party's :) "To Kill a Mocking Bird" is among my favorite books and I love lillys. I hope someday we will get a chance to be swap partners, well "material" swap partners lol. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Im in for a storm here in Newfoundland Canada. Take Care, Freckleface.
