Getting to Know Me

Some time has passed and I thought I would share a little about myself.

Let's see, where do I start?

1. I am in my early 30's
2. I have two little girls, Jaiden and Arya.
3. Arya is named after both of us.
4. Arya's name is pronounced A-rye-ah. Not "area".
5. I have red hair (naturally).
6. I am left handed.
7. I was a manager of a "mom & pop" pizza place for 10 years.
8. I worked in an office for 4 years and discovered it just wasn't for me. I worked as a commission specialist for a broker/dealer firm. I loved the work, just not the office setting.
9. I worked 3 jobs while in high school at the same time.
10. Ryan is my second husband.
11. I met my first husband and Ryan while working at the pizza place.
12. I was married at 21 and divorced at 25, the best decision I ever made!
13. Ryan and I were married in June of 2005.
14. It took me 11 years to graduate from Miami University with a B.A. in History.
15. Hablo espaƱol.
16. Ryan and I own a Pontiac Aztec, Chevy Cavalier, and Ford F150 truck. We have never owned a brand new car. My cavalier was 1 year old when I got it. Our truck is almost older than my sister!
17. My sister and I are 9 years apart in age.
18. After Jaiden was born, I worked at Bed, Bath & Beyond for over 2 years.
19. Jaiden looks like just like Ryan. Even when she was born.
20. I am not a "girly girl". Give me jeans and sweat pants any day!
21. I normally do not wear any make up.
22. My parents "officially" divorced when I was 9. My dad and I didn't not have a relationship until 4 years ago.
23. I HATE to wash dishes. I would rather do any other housework!
24. I love to watch squirrels play.
25. I have never been on a commercial airplane. My first plane ride was a charter plane at a craft show last year.
26. I own "my own" power tools and know how to use them.
27. I can change a tire and the oil on a car.
28. I do not like roller coasters.
29. I have an abnormal memory for numbers. I can remember phone numbers from 20 years ago!
30. I do not have any friends my own age. They are at least 10-20 years older than me!

Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about me or my family and I'll post it!
