11 Things about Me --
1. I am a momma of two amazing kiddos. Who are lovingly referred to as my spawn on my blog. The are my world.
2. I have a super awesome boyfriend who we live with in Texas. He is hilarious and the biggest nerd ever. And so perfect for me it is insane.
3. I am really into body art. I probably always will be. At one point in time, I had around 18 piercings, 8 of which were in my face. Now I am down to 8 total. I have 6 or 7 tattoos. lol [6 if you count the swallows on my chest as one. But it will be going down to 5 when I get the ring removed on my finger.] I also have a brand. I fully intend to get hella more tattoos.
4. I have an insane love of cupcakes. I don't like to eat them so much as make them. I love to decorate them and look at them. I love creating something so awesome that is edible.
5. I start Culinary Art School for Baking & Patisserie on July 10th. I keep going back and forth on the excitement. I AM excited. I really am. But part of me is scared shitless.
6. Matt and I are going to Vegas on Thursday! It will be the first time for both of us. I cannot wait. I am soooo excited over the bright lights.
7. I am highly addicted to World of Warcraft [when the expansion doesn't suck balls.] and met my boyfriend in the game. I've stuck with playing a paladin pretty much my entire WoW existance. BUT Diablo 2 is my all time favorite video game. I played that shit forever. Diablo 3 is a little disappointing in comparison.
8. Zombies are just too cool, as are Vampires and werewolves. :]
9. I am a huge book worm. I read a lot of fantasy. haha. Yes, even Young Adult Fiction. No shame.
10. I have lived in Indiana, Alabama, North Carolina [unfortunately, although, had I not moved there I might not of gotten the chance to fall in love with the Matt], Florida and now Texas.
11. I would love to be a vegetarian, and was for a short period of time on more than one occasion, but lack the commitment. Maybe someday.
