A little about me!

I am someone to everyone, and everyone is someone to me! I am a christian, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, friend, volunteer, co-worker, sports fanatic, animal lover, and so much more but these are the most important to me. My husband, Jason, is a firefighter/ paramedic. He is the most passionate person I have ever met. We have been together over 8 years and married for 2 1/2. I truly fall more in love with him everyday, because I am still learning more about him and learning from him. I am so proud of the things he has accomplished, and can't wait to see more. He believes in me and pushes me to be better at whatever it is I put my heart into, including this expensive habit of scrapbooking : ) I love you!

I live for the weekends... I know, we all do, but it is my time to create, watch sports, and just spend time with the ones I love. I can seriously watch sports all day everyday, it doesn't matter the sport, and if there isn't a game on, Sports Center will do. I tend to yell and scream for Texas Tech, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Rangers the most.

I also watch a lot of Animal Planet, and I mean A LOT. I have the worlds biggest heart for all of God's creatures. I even record shows on there, even the ones I've seen 10 times. I spend a few hours a month volunteering for a local animal shelter. It is one of the most rewarding experiences. Of course, I want to bring home every single dog in there, but I have to look at the big picture, and just do my part to make sure those cute faces find a forever loving home.

We do have two children; Mae, she is my sweetheart. She is a chocolate lab and has to be one of the sweetest  best dogs out there. She LOVES the water, to the point that my kitchen is covered in water from her drinking, because she likes to stick her whole face down in the bucket. Sierra is a mix; we think part lab part sheppard. She is our wild child, but she does have a sweet side...sometimes. She loves to talk and will tell you when she needs to go outside, when it's time to eat, or if she is just ready to play.  They are my children, and it is a full time job caring for those two- trust me!

My family is very close. I am still a Daddy's girl- BIG time. My mom is seriously my best friend. We do everything together. She is my scraptastic side kick. My brother is a brain-i-ac. I love just talking to him to hear what he is thinking up next. I have the best in-laws. They are some of the most genuine sweet people you will ever meet. I consider myself very lucky to call them family.

I got into scrapbooking when I was in high school. I made a huge scrapbook with colored paper and paint pens. It may not be my best work, but it holds all of those great memories. Now, I have all of the best scrapbooking supplies plus some. My latest purchase is the Cricut Imagine! Ohhh yaaa!!! I am so so excited for this! I have a fantastic scrap room ( I will post pictures of it soon) dedicated to my hobby. Paper is my weakness, I love it and want it all!!

I am currently working on my niece's scrapbook and an alphabet book for her (pictures soon). Both of these are a huge undertaking and will be ongoing for a while, I'm sure. I also recently started making cards. This is like instant gratification and I love it!

Well, that's me- summed up in just a few paragraphs! Please stay tuned for pictures and other great posts!
