Hi from the great state of Louisiana. I was born & raised in New Orleans & am SO happy to finally be home after 30 years - this time to stay!

I am married to my wonderful husband of 12 years & we live with our 3 furbaby rescue dogs: 2 min-pin mixes, Shemp (because he's such a stooge), Polly (because she's such a princess), & Paco (our rat dog, a chihuahua). We also have 2 invisible & unsociable cats (Sox & Shado, brother & sister) that only come out when they want to eat & the 2 times during the day when they want to be scratched. LOL

My favorite things to do are Line dancing, snuggling in a soft throw & reading, with my dogs by my side, word search puzzles, watching movies with my Honey, sleeping, & when the weather get's warmer & the season is right - go crabbing (catching blue crab) & going fishing in our great Louisiana lakes!

Personal Information:
My Motto: God First

My stand on God's Word is what gets me through all things, good & bad.

I have to remember that I've already proven to myself I can lose 45 lbs. without much difficulty. All I have to do is stick to my routine!

I'm normally very quiet until I know someone well. People consider me very fair, trustful, honest, fun to be around, & easy to get along with. Normally I am slow to anger but when you push me past my limit, watch out. You will KNOW you pissed me off. (Must be the Italian in me. LOL.)

About me:
I'm strong yet I'm a little girl at heart, sometimes too nieve but not stupid, I'm fun to be around when you get to know me well, I don't like to be made fun of, I've got a sensitive heart but won't be fooled, I'm good at first impressions, and can easily read someone.

Other Information:
My fav quotes:

"I can handle anything that life throws at me -- I may not be able to handle it well, or correctly, or gracefully, or with finesse, or expediently -- but I WILL handle it!!"

Just Keep Swimming! - Dory

HE IS RISEN! May the blessings of the Lord guide, protect and be with you always! Sending spiritual HUGS from my home to yours. Have a beautiful and blessed Resurrection Day!
