I'm from Toronto Canada! I was raised up in Thunder Bay where outdoor activity is the norm, I'm on Spark because when I moved to the big city I stopped MOVING. Need to lose the weight I gained here.

Can't believe I JUST now found this group! I was born in CA, raised in Tucson AZ, then moved to Mesa, AZ and met my husband. We moved to St. Cloud MN for about a year or so but had to leave our beloved house behind for Falls Church VA. We have 5 kids ages 5 and under and we're going to start homeschooling our oldest soon! :) If anyone ever wants to get together, just message me! :)

I'm very late on this one. But, better late than never. :)

Navy Brat here so, we moved every few years. I was born in Portsmouth, Virginia. Then moved to Portugal, Charlotte, Arkansas, Italy, Spain, and then Pensacola, Florida. My Dad retired us to Cave City, Arkansas where I spent my miserable teen years in podunk, nowhere. At 18 I married my hubby and became a Navy wife. We moved to Pensacola, Florida, Wahiawa, Hawaii and then to Pensacola, Florida. Yes, again and hopefully for the very last time, darn it! Now we live in Marysville, Washington but will be moving to Hampton Roads, Virginia next May.

Just call me fashionably late!
I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. After high school, I moved to a small town south of Corpus Christi, TX for college. Met my husband here-he's originally from a speck of a town in central TX, where I would go every summer for a family reunion, but we had never met. After we graduated college (we got to walk the stage together! Yes, I'm a sappy cheese ball), we stayed here to work and go to grad school. Now our lives and friends are here, so I guess here is where we'll stay.
Though, we both would pack up and move to Colorado or the Pacific Northwest if we ever had the opportunity and the money.

Since we've got pockets of folks who are close, maybe it would be fun to have quarterly shindigs where mamas get run around together and share healthy snacks (& wine.)

I am so late to this too but here goes...
Spent my first 18 years in and around Princeton, NJ. Then college at UMass in Amherst, MA. Then grad school at the Univ of Michigan in Ann Arbor (where i met my husband). Then to Mobile, AL for a year. Then Philly for almost 4 years. Then back to Alabama (Montgomery) for nearly 4 years ( where i had two kids). We've been in Fairfax, Va outside DC for almost 6 years. I have loved every place I've lived but Fairfax really feels like home.

I was born and raised in Petaluma, CA, which is about 45 minutes North of San Francisco and 40 minutes West of Napa. I went to college an hour away from home, and then moved back when I graduated. Met my husband, got married, finally got pregnant with my son, and when I realized I didn't think I could give him over to daycare we moved to Las Vegas, NV so I could be a stay at home mom. :) Been here for 8 years now.

I prefer to appreciate what I have, rather than whine about what I wish I had. :)

Well, Nita, you weren't last to the party (glad to help you out there)
I get to add to the Jerseyites. I was born in St. Pete, FL, but was raised from 3-18 in Summit, NJ. Went to college in Madison, WI (Go Badgers) then lived in NC (Fayettenam and St. Pauls) before moving to the land of my heart, Maine. Unfortunately, the man in my heart whom I met there has half of his roots in FL (grimace). So we have been here for almost seven years - four in Melbourne, and three in Lee County.
And speaking of losing sports teams, I think I can beat ya, YCA. At least the Dolphins have won a superbowl in the last 100 years. Imagine being a Cubs fan....sigh.

A few days late, but I'm used to being behind everyone. It's part of the joy of living in Alaska. *sigh* Are you ready to laugh? I'm not just from Alaska. I grew up in North Pole, Alaska (seriously). I moved around for a while after highschool (Idaho, Montana, Washington, NorCal, Missouri, other parts of Alaska), but I've settled, for the time being, in Fairbanks, Alaska. (Go Nanooks! Yeah? Hockey? Anybody? Not so much?)

I'm Late too! But anyway...

Nothing Exciting...Born 15 minutes WEST of Cleveland Oh. Lived pretty much the same place for 26 years. Then met my lovey and moved an hour EAST of where I grew up. Still in Ohio though...except instead of being an hour or so away from Michigan, I am now an hour or so away from PA ;)

Oh, and Go Steelers ;)

feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
and just pull that $hit out of you and get that motivation to not give up and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse." ~ Eminem "Till I Collapse"

I grew up in Roy, WA, a wide spot in the road, surrounded on three sides by Ft. Lewis. I went to college at Washington State University, where I met and married my husband. Then he got at job in Michigan so we moved. We have lived outside of Ann Arbor for the last 8 years now. It is hard to believe it's been so long.

I feel like I'm late to the party! My family has been taking up so much time lately, and not leaving enough space for my darlings of the internet.

I'm an East Coast gal. I've spent most of my life in Virginia but my family roots are in Alabama. My big rebellion was the decade I spent in Boston. Hubby is a Georgia-boy through and through so I have dreams that someday we'll end up down in the land of springtime warmth once again.

This weekend we're taking the whole gaggle up to Boston to see some of my old haunts and to watch a friend of ours run the Boston Marathon. It's cold up there this time of year. Looking back, I wonder how I put up with it for so long.

My nephew did the same act of rebellion but for colleges. We're all HUGE University of Florida fans (GO GATORS!!). He decided he was going to root for Florida State. Boooooooooo

Of course, then I had to go and marry an FSU fan. Blasted mixed marriages...

I live in Hudson, OH, just southeast of Cleveland. Our teams always lose, too. Except, miraculously, the Indians swept the Red Sox this week, to my son's immense disappointment. He's only 10, but his first teenagerish act of rebellion, when he was 6, was to become a rabid Red Sox fan. Anyway, I grew up closer to Cleveland, but moved to Woodstock, GA for the end of High School and then went to college in NC. (Appalachian State) Hurried back to Ohio as soon as I could, despite the grey skies and snowy Marches. Love the seasons, sledding and skiing, not needing air conditioning for more that a few weeks and even the losing teams. :)

I grew up in a very typical Texas small town (oh, the joys...), I went to college in Houston (Go Coogs!), and my family and I now live in "Fun Central": Arlington, Texas...home of our beloved Texas Rangers and our not-so-beloved Jerry World, I mean, Cowboys Stadium. Bring on the snarky Super Bowl comments. ;)

I was born in Indiana, in a dinky little Mayberry-ish town southwest of Indianapolis. My parents moved down here to Florida when I was about 2, and I've been here ever since. For the most part, we've lived in Orlando, or a suburb of, but I also lived in South Florida for a year. Right now, I'm about 20 minutes from Disney World. (Keep that in mind when you plan your next Disney vacay!!) ;)

Born on the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba after my parents (dad is Cuban, Mom an American born in Cuba because her Marine dad was stationed there) jumped the fence onto the Naval Base (Mom was 9 months preggers with me!). Came to Norfolk, VA on a Navy ship when I was a wee one (less than a year old) and lived in Norfolk (my alma mater is Old Dominion University) until I was married in 1984 and hubbie and I have lived in Virginia Beach, VA since then!

I was born in Cranbury, NJ. Live there until I was 18. Then went to college in Nashville, TN. Then followed my boyfriend to Colorado - lived in Colorado Springs and various Denver suburbs for 8 years. Then moved back east to be near family (with my 'new' boyfriend who is now my husband). We lived in Manassas, VA for a year and a half and then finally broke down and came back up to NJ. So now we live in East Windsor, NJ...about 15 minutes from where I spent my first 18 years. Been back for almost 9 years now.

I'm from ALL over. My real dad was in the navy, so I've lived in all the southern states. My adoptive dad designed amps and whatnot for bands and companies like fender and we covered more southern and west coast states before moving to PA and MD. But I was born in South Carolina. Right before a hurricane apparently.

AND now! I live in Gaithersburg Maryland. I miss Frederick, and I REALLY miss West Virginia. Currently hassling hubby to move us back out to Frederick or Hagerstown (Hagerstucky.. hehe).
