Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Yep, another year has passed and I've climbed one more rung up the age ladder!

I'm 31.... Cuh-Raze-EEEE.

I have fun posts surrounding this weekend and today. I want to document all the special ways my loved ones have celebrated me. And, I WILL do that, this week.

I just read back my post from last year and it's sort of neat to remember where I was at that point. A lot has changed, in so many great ways.

More than that, I think back to five years ago on my birthday. The growth I see in myself sort of astounds me.

Anyway, I have lots of things running through my head that I *NEED* to jot down. So many things. However, for now, it must wait. My boss just left and so I'm taking that as a sign that I can, too. I have some more celebrating to do!!

Because I trust Kelly more than dating websites......

Kelly is at it again and so am I ;)

So, here is where I try to convince you that I'd be great for you or the guy you are "trying to help out." I seriously hate this part. I always sound lame and cheesy, lol.

Anyways, as my sidebar says, I'm a native Florida girl who is fine staying here forever, but wouldn't be opposed to uprooting, someday. I've spent the last ten years working really hard to succeed in school and then my career. Now, I'm ready to focus more on the personal side of things. Only problem? When you've spent ten years on your career, you find yourself only meeting people within your work circle.... hence, trying Kelly's little link-up ;)

As I write this, I am 30. However, if you read this on Monday the 25th, I will be 31. 

I'd consider myself quirky, rather than weird. If you've watched that show 'New Girl' with Zoey Deschanel, I'm a tamer version of 'Jess' (or so people say). I also find myself relating to ridiculous things that Mindy says in 'The Mindy Project.' Like, there are times where I will say to myself, "OMG. Those words have some out of my mouth before!"

I like to laugh and will occasionally break into dance in random places. I'm pretty sarcastic, but no one ever realizes it (apparently, I have an innocent face and a sweet tone). In some instances, I'm totally organized and anal.... in others, I really couldn't care less.

I try to be honest and upfront (when I'm not being sarcastic).

I like music, movies, Disney (yes, Disney), and spending time with my friends/family.

During the summer, I and my immediate+extended family have a very serious addiction to 'Big Brother.' It is our goal to have a member of our family on the show, at some point. Anyone who complains about or mocks the show in any way is excommunicated until it's over. Just a fair warning, lol.

Over the past couple of years, I've gotten into running. I do it, but I tend to complain about it until I have a race and actually finish. Then, I am happy and will be proud for about a week until I complain about it, again. 

What am I looking for?

A guy who loves Jesus, knows His love, and knows that we are all very flawed humans (especially me).

I want someone funny, relaxed, responsible, and caring. Someone who is ok with the occasional random dance (you don't have to join... you just can't pretend not to know me, lol). Someone who likes kids (and maybe wants some of their own).

My job is very social and so are my coworkers, so I'd really prefer not to be involved with a hermit. However, I also want someone who is ok with having a 'couch potato day' every so often.

Seriously, if you do any sort of tobacco.... no thanks.

That's about all I can think of at the moment :)

If you think there is a match in the making or you have any other questions, feel free to comment or email me!

Convos with H&J

Hi, people! So, I did so well posting in July and then I went on vacation.

Yeah. Almost a month later, I'm back on zee ole blog.

Let's start back with a quickie, ok?

My mom, my cousin Heidi, and I are planning my sister's baby shower. Well, we're also trying to plan with HER mom, too, but she's been a bit MIA. That's another story.

Anyway, we've all been out of town over the past several weekends and the shower is in a few weeks. On Saturday, Heidi decided to go get a few things for her part of the shower and invited us along. This was me texting her on my mom's phone........
