Career wise I am an Executive Administrative Assistant and I currently work with Mechanical Engineers. They are all men!! Don't get excited they are soooo not eye candy!! LOL Any who, I have worked with all men my entire career. I started out in the Air Force and then worked in the Aerospace industry for a few years.
I only have an Associates Degree in Business Administration but I am a very hard worker and have always worked my way up. I have thought about going back to school but then I think....ahhh NO!! School bores me. lol I know that does not sound good because education is very important but I am just being honest. My husband on the other hand is what I like to call a "career" student. He will have his Master's next year and is already looking into Ph.D. programs!! smh He is very smart and I call him my "NERD". haha My hubby is also a preacher and works in the health care industry. He is very quiet and humble. He is a great father. He loves me to pieces and I love him right back. We have been together since 1996.
Below are a few pics of me in the Air Force, my typical work attire and my hubby.
I have a 10 year old daughter who keeps me very busy with all of her school projects and extracurricular activities! She is in 2 forms of dance. Ballet Folklorico and regular ballet. She is also in piano and figure skating. Lately its all about the hair, nails, American Girl dolls and cell phones. She does not have a cell phone but thinks she is getting one for Christmas (no way at 10). lol Here is a picture of my daughter with long hair and then after she begged me for weeks to cut it. Can you believe it!
I LOVE the New York Yankees!! I rock this hat often on my chill days!I have wonderful neighbors that both my daughter and I adore. We are all very close. Here is a pic of us hanging out one night. We had just had Pink Berry. These kids LOVE to pose for the camera! haha
Personality wise I am a pretty straight forward person. I have my moments of goofiness and I love to laugh. Don't leave the door open for me to get a "punch line" in because I will take it!! haha I give good and honest advise with your best interest at heart. I am not a jealous person. I don't see the need for it and how does being jealous of others or their things profit me? I love to see everyone succeed and will help you in that effort in any way that I can.
I have 3 tatoos. I was young and stupid! haha My mom had her nose pierced so I begged her for one and she pierced my nose when I was in the 5th grade. I was made fun of a lot for it but I thought it was beautiful. It was a small diamond stud. I wore it all the way through high school and then removed it when I joined the AF. I think it still may be open. I got my belly button pierced when I was in the AF and one morning I woke up and the ring had come out. My uniform pants used to rub it and it tore out. EEWWW!!
My mother was a model and a jazz singer. She has a degree in Psychology. My father started law school but decided it was not for him. He was very popular in high school and was the senior class president. He and my mother both ran track. My mom was very fast and won many state competitions. My father ran cross country. He now works for our tribe. I have 3 sisters and 3 brothers. All are successful in their own right. My mom and dad had a short relationship and were never married.
Here are a few random facts about me.....I love watermelon. I buy one every couple of days during the summer and I have literally eaten watermelon for dinner. I remove it from the rind, cut it up into small chunks, put in bowl, refrigerate and then eat from that bowl for days!! I love to thrift but I also shop retail. My favorite stores are Macy's, Dillard's and Nordstrom. I also frequent TJ Maxx and Marshalls! My favorite on-line store is ASOS.com and I am an eBay-a-holic! lol I only buy things on sale!! Yep, I'm cheap! haha
I am a bit of a neat freak but my closet looks like a tornado just went through it. I have my days when I sort of let the house go and then when I can't take it any longer, I clean like a mad woman. Dirty bathrooms...I will not use! I would rather "hold it". hee hee I am obsessed with washing my hands. I take notes of co-workers that walk out of the restroom without washing their hands. LOL I don't eat everyone's food (see sentence before this sentence). LOL I love watching movies. I get a movie from the Redbox daily. I am a hopeless romantic and love "chic flicks". One of my faves!Pet peeves: Chipped nail polish, people that talk over me while I'm talking, people that brag, people that see you need help and don't offer it (like holding the door when my hands are full). Men or women that think they are "ALL THAT"! I have a thing for teeth. I love straight white teeth! I wash my makeup off every night and I still have problem skin. I love Jesus because He 1st loved me. I once was lost but now I am found. I serve the Lord with all my heart and all my mind and I shout it from the roof tops. I am not ashamed of my JESUS!! I am a work in progress. Jesus works on me daily! I need to read my bible more!
I will not drink or eat after anyone...not even my husband or child. Wierd! I know. I love music. ALL music. I listen to country, jazz, rock, Spanish...ALL OF IT!! I love Martin. He is flippin hilarious! I have all the episodes! I can't stand clog shoes. I think too much jewelry looks a mess. I am a good cook but I don't like to cook. haha I have not always been plus size. I fell and ruptured two disks in my back and could no longer run or exercise like I used to. I love the smell of rain in the desert. I don't like men that degrade women or women that degrade men. I wish I could take every child that needed a home into my home.
This one may throw you for a loop...I'm a Republican! I love makeup and have tons of it but I don't really wear it like I could. I love dogs. I do not and will not wear a thong! lol I read every blog that I visit. I can tell if you read mine or just comment on the pictures (I'm watching you). lol I love chewy candy but am not a huge fan of pastries or chocolate. Chocolate must have nuts or I will not eat. I am very kind to everyone UNLESS I'm PMS-ing!! lol My favorite perfume is Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. I would die without lipstick! I am not afraid of many things. Not even snakes or spiders but I don't like confined spaces or fast cars. OK...that is all. lol
