Well,Katika tagged me and I guess I have to think of 5 things that make me, well me. Sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, but life happens.
1. I am the mother of two adult children. CB is 27 years old and is the assistant director of employee wellness at the Sears headquarters in Chicago. My baby, AB is 25 years old and is in his second year of law school at OSU. He is getting married in June to a beautiful young woman. We also had the opportunity to raise our niece for about 18 months until this past June.

2. I like to travel, but hate to fly. Doesn't make sense does it? I love going new places, but hate to be off the ground. I don't like roller coasters either. I do fly, but with great reluctance. Believe it or not I have not yet made it to California. I hope to make it someday, but hate flights longer than 2-3 hours. I have to admit flying does indeed get you there faster and easier but it just ain't my thang!!

3. I love doing flowers for weddings and coordinating weddings as well. I don't do it much any more because my time is limited, but this is my passion.

4. I'm a child of the 70's and love oldies. Earth, Wind and Fire, Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra, The commodores, Patrice Rushen, O'Jay's, Three Degrees, and especially "Got to be Real" by Cheryl Lynn listen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoXvDleWJ5U&mode=related&search=

5. My husband and I are high school sweethearts having met in 1974. I can't believe that we've been together that long. It hasn't always been all roses, but God has blessed us. Our faith has sustained us through the tough times. We have his parents example of a 59 year marriage which only ended due to my father in laws death, before us as an example. We've been married now 26+ years and I hope that we have many more!! I appreciate that he has been my biggest cheerleader in all that I have done in my professional and academic pursuits. My advice to anyone getting married is to put God first, each other second, don't expect it to be a fairytale, recognize that it is work and take time to spend quality time with one another.

Thanks Katika for giving me this opportunity to share. I have tagged:

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Well while we didn't have snow at Christmas, old man winter is now making up for it. We are in the middle of a blizzard with 8-10 inches falling just today. The only good thing is that the university where I teach will be closed tomorrow!! Yippee!!! I would rather go into to teach on a Spring day when I don't have to trudge thorough the cold and snow. The extra day will help as my husband and I spent yesterday stranded in Columbus (about 130 mi. away) waiting for our car to be repaired. Long story short...to the tune of $1100 we were able to get on the road last night and get home before the big storm. So those of you in more temperate areas...enjoy as we will be digging out!!

Here's a really curly look. I took time and put in all 60 soft spike curlers and boy did I have curls!! I guess this is what I have to do, put more curlers in utilizing less hair per curler. Maybe I'm slow, but it took me almost 45 minutes to get them in. I did use the JML setting lotion. So these pictures are from the end of day one. I am anxious to see how long they will last, my experience has been they are out in 2 days. I'm going to have a tightening this week. So, I'm excited to see how much appreciable growth I have.
