I would love to do this!

Name: Teresa


Birthday: July 9th

Spark Anniversary: August 11, 2010

Wedding Anniversary: Between June 27-29, 2003...It's a big joke between my husband and myself

Kids and Ages: Two boys and girl...Quinn 8 yrs, Wyatt 5 yrs, and my baby girl Rei 9 months

Grandkids: none

Some of my favorite things children and to crochet. I love to dance as well.

My current goals..

1. To stick within my calorie range.
2. To get 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week.
3. Do my strength training 3 times a week.
4. Keep myself away from emotional eating by crocheting instead. (So far it's working.)
5. To get back in the swing of things with Spark! I can't believe I stayed away for as long as I did!! :/

Other things: I have been a stay at home mom for the last 6 years and it doesn't look like that will be changing anytime soon. My husband drives an oil taker in ND for a living, so I get compared to a single mom all the time...difference is I don't have to work for money. I admire single mothers. They are amazing. My favorite forms of exercise are walking and dancing. I went missing from Spark! for a while due to some complications with the birth of my daughter, but I am back and eager as ever to get my butt in gear!!

Hi Everyone!

I have done this before and it was really fun! I want to restart a fresh post so that people that want to join now can and those that are still wanting to do it can let me know as well.

Q & A:

Ok so WHAT IS a SPARK PEN PAL? It is where we can send each other (only the ones signed up) post cards, cards or just a little note of encouragement in the mail. I loved getting the post cards but they are hard to find sometimes, that is why its not called postcard pen pal anymore.

WHO ALL WOULD GET MY ADDRESS? Well first you would send me a spark mail including your name and address (can use p.o box) then as we get people that join us (ONLY THE PEOPLE IN THE PEN PAL club) would get a list of names and addresses from me that I will email each person in the club. THE WHOLE TEAM WILL NOT GET YOU ADDRESS!

FIRST: Fill out the questionnaire that I will post below to let me and others know that you want to join.
SECOND: Send me via spark mail your name and address. DO NOT POST YOUR ADDRESS IN THIS POST! THEN EVERYONE WILL HAVE IT! Only send it to me and then i will send each one participating a list of the names and addresses of the other pen pals.

WHO WANTS TO JOIN ME AND OTHERS IN THE SPARK PEN PAL club? I Will be in it! Its lots of fun to send and receive inspiration to other team members!
