Followers Fest {Link Up}

Now, I know its not October 28th
but this link up is still going on and I just couldn't pass this up.
It looks so fun!


I first found this link up through A Momma's Desires and Pacifiers but Casey over at The Wiegand's is hosting it.

So I would like to introduce myself to ya.

1. This is my hubs. I don't really show him here on my blog much. But here he is. We have been married for 3 years. 4 will be in March. I love this man.


And he is the bestest daddy!


2. I used to be fun. Like drop what I'm doing and go party fun,/go have drinks fun/stay out till 3AM without a yawn in site fun. 
See examples...


Clubbing with the girls!

Gaspirilla!

NYC!

NYC before going to a Broadway show!

Where did the fun Cher go?
I think she has left the building because I can't stay awake past 10:00.

3. I graduated from FSU as a social work major.
Now I am a paralegal who handles criminal and family law.
Mostly family law.
It's almost the same thing as being a social work major in that sometimes I have to talk people off their ledge.
I love my job.
I find it true that the people at your job will either make it or break it and thank goodness my boss is pretty great.

4. I love to travel.
But I am a bad traveler.
I tend to get sick every time we go somewhere.
Mostly some stomach issue.

I have been to Dubai
And yes it is pretty awesome.

My husband was already there for work, he stayed for a month (pre C) and I went to go visit.
So I had to fly and maneuver through the airports all by myself.
It was a culture shock I must admit.
But everyone in Dubai was extremely nice and helpful.


And yes we went sand-dunning or as they call it sand bashing.
Which was so freaking cool.
And yes I almost upchucked my tabouli.
We just rode around in a 4Runner bashing thru the sand at high speeds for a couple of hours.
Then we went and had dinner and there were camels and a belly dancer there.
We truly got the Middle Eastern experience.

And yes I did go skiing in the mall.
And you see those fences there. Yes, I did crash through them.
Very embarrassing but it makes for a great story.


Their malls are AHHMMMAZING!
They are better then pictures.
Everything is very high end even the woman wearing their burqas.
There shoes, purses and jewelry are to die for.
Gold, gold and more gold!!!

I have traveled to Alaska



St. Louis

St. Martin & Anguilla for our honeymoon

And of course Hawaii where we got engaged.


5. I am a very private person.
Only a few people know everything there is to know about me.
I feel that people take your problems and turn them into gossip and I just don't like that and think its wrong.
I think there is a Pinterest quote about this somewhere...

6. I will share a private thing about me.
My parents are divorced.
They got divorced while I was in college.
They also adopted my little brother, he is my sister's child.
That is a whole other long story in itself that maybe I will blog about one day.
Child abuse is a very hard subject for me to speak about.
Another reason I got in social work.

7. And I think this pretty much sums me up as a parent.
I love C so much.
He is truly a blessing from God.
