About Me

I'm a mom of a 20-year-old daughter (wow that seems so strange to me still) and a 16-year-old son.

I am an avid reader and my favorite genres are mysteries, thrillers, Christian fiction, light romance, YA, and adventure

I live in east Texas but am originally from Dallas (30+ years there)

I love to listen to music

I enjoy having "family movie night" and try to fit this in at least twice a month

My favorite place is the beach

I love animals and share my home with several cats, two of which are mine

I'm not much of a tea drinker and due to a medical condition I can only have very limited amounts of caffeine at one time which I prefer to consume in the form of chocolate

I have enjoyed crafting since I was a child and my grandmother taught me to make flowers out of tissues. I also like to make things for gifts, i.e., latch hook rug, decorated candles, handcrafted jewelry, shadowbox with memorabilia, dragon eggs and potion bottles, a tutu, wreaths, etc. I have tried my hand at many mediums over the years but didn't really love anything I did. Recently I started playing around with designing my own postcards and bookmarks, dabbling with watercolor painting, and creating paper collages and I am loving it. I think I may have found my niche in papercrafting. It is still relatively new to me but I am having a blast learning about this medium.

I will continue to update my profile as I think of more things to add/revise about myself

Favorite Things

A few of my favorite things are: *Seahorses *Mermaids *Sea stars *Sand dollars *Seashells *Washi tape *Birdhouses *The color aqua (like the ocean in the Caribbean) *Music (the 80s, classic rock, smooth jazz, 90s, country) *Looking at the stars in the big Texas country sky *Dancing (although my kids tell me I'm no good at it) *Snail mail - I love post cards and handwritten letters *Swimming *Cooking/baking *My great-nephews and great-nieces (they are like my grandkids) *Cupcakes *Baskin-Robbins chocolate chip ice cream *Shopkins *Uncommon small toys (wind-up toys, light-up musical spinning tops, Jacob's Ladder wooden toy, tiny Tinkertoy set, wooden cup and ball toy, etc) *Autumn *Soft, snuggly throws (I could never have too many) *Hot chocolate (in assorted flavors) *A glass of good wine *Fireplaces *Southern-style home cooking *Fun/silly socks *Dragonflys

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV programs are: *America's Got Talent *Making It *Take Two *Elementary *The Good Doctor *Dancing with the Stars

Favorite Movies

Favorite movies include: *Hope Floats *Dirty Dancing *Joyful Noise *Bad Company *El Dorado (John Wayne) *Open Range *Big Hero 6 *The Karate Kid (2010)


Call me old fashioned but I dislike: *Profanity *Facial/body piercings (small nose piercing is okay) *Sagging (pants) *Goth attire/makeup *Hip hop music *Occult and related items *Nudity/X-rated pics and items

DISCLAIMER: This list is not meant to offend anyone. I am not judgmental and I totally believe in self-expression whatever form that may take. These are just my personal feelings and even my own two kids don't totally agree with me about some of these things. I have chosen to share my dislikes (and also my likes) only as a means of helping people learn more about me.

Hi Myra! I'm your partner for the Post on Profile-Christmas/Holiday Movie swap. This swap was hard for me because I love Hallmark Christmas movies! My absolute favorite Christmas movies of all time are the "The Santa Claus" movies with Tim Allen. I love those movies. Take care!

My wife's favorite place to be is also the beach, so I understand your passion for the sand and the waves. When you need a break, I hope this can serve as a five second vacation. Hope you enjoy!
