Getting to Know Me..................

Sunday, February 21, 2010

OK, I’m jumping on the A to Z bandwagon – it’s been so fun to get to know my fellow Sparkers this way, so hopefully, this will be a fun way for you to get to know me

A is for Age: 56

B is for Beach...I love the beach! Any beach! I have been to many beautiful beaches all over the world.....

C is for Cameron, my only sister. She is the wonderful mother of my 18 year old niece, Emily. She is a 2nd grad school teacher, and loves teaching children. She is very patient and kind.

D is for Daisy, my wonderful mother's name. She will be 81 years young next week. She's been through alot recently and I am so blessed to have her in my life

E is for Elvis. I am a die-hard Elvis fan and had the priveldge seeing him eight times...He was an amazing performer! When I was 18, I went to Graceland, jumped his high fence and grabbed a blade of Elvis grass...I still have it somewhere.

F is for Fun-loving. I love to have fun and do crazy things.You only live once right?

G is for my God...I believe in a higher power and I know that everything happens for a reason

H is for Hometown: I was born in Long Beach, California, so I am a California native! Not too many of us out there!

I is for Intelligent. I know that I am intelligent and love to expand my mind

J is for Joanne, my BFF for over 22 years! We have had alt of great times, and met wonderful men. We spend time traveling, photography, The Laker's and enjoying each other's company

K is for Kevin, my only brother. He is 50 and has gone through some rough times. He found a wonderful woman, so I am really hoping his life will turn around

L is for Love. I love being in love! It is the most amazing experience in the world....

M is for Michael, my hubby. He is almost 60 years young and is the most patient, kind, and caring person I have ever met. I feel truly blessed to have him in my life

N is for Nurse. I have been an oncology RN for the last 29 years! I am now a clinical educator of a large hospital in Southern California..I teach new nurses and student nurses. Nursing is my passion!

O is for Outside. I love being outside when the weather is nice ( which is most of the time in Southern California). We love to hike in the park next to us.

P is for Photography. I am slowly learning to take better pictures...We take alot of pictures and i make a Shutterfly photo album every year of our year in pictures. Most albums are 100 pages long, which is usually around 250 pictures!

Q is for Quick.....I am quick at doing almost everything..That can be good or bad, depends on how you look at it!

R is for Rudy, my Dad. He is almost 82 years young and still very active. I am so thankful my parents are now well and enjoying their busy life.

S is for Sun...I have to have it! I don't do well during the rainy times (thank goodness, it's not much in California!). I LOVE the beach and go there to walk or simply listen to the waves. That is my hubby and my special place to go...Don't tell anyone!

T is for Travel...something we both love to do...Went to England, Ireland and Scotland 2 years ago, then last year went to Alaska...Both trips were family trips and they were wonderful!

U is for Unique..My hubby always tells me I am unique. I hope that is good?

V is for Vision.. We have a vision of where we want to be in 10 years....Hopefully, with alot of hard work, it will happen...

W is for Wonderful....I feel my life is wonderful...I am in a really good place right now, and am working hard to continue the positive thoughts and energy

X- is for Xrays.....Have a quite a few in my lifetime....Thankfully nothing too serious

Y is for Youth...One thing I am always trying to capture, and haven't quite figured it out yet is my youth. I want to be young and healthy forever! But in the mean time, healthy will do!

Z is for Zodiac....my sign is Cancer, a home loving, caring person. I am really not too much into Zodiac signs.

    Hi, Laura!
    I don't know how I missed this, but I surely enjoyed getting to know you better! It sounds like we have a lot in common: beach, outside, photography, to name only a few! I love the picture of the zebra tails -- how fun!

    Now I do know you better! I posted this some time in Jan. So check mine out. How about that...I have experience in oncology too...smile. And lived in San Bernardino...when it was beautiful in the late '70's and I met my husband there. We moved to Monterey through '83. We visit frineds in Cardiff once every few years. Anyway...I digress. Thanks for sharing! Mary
