Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)

I was a contestant on a gameshow yesterday...wanna see?

Hi guys :) 

My husband and I were on Let's Make A Deal Yesterday.  It actually was filmed on July 14, 2011 and I've had to keep it a secret until yesterday when it aired.  I literally told noone!  It was so hard!!!  Anyway...check it out if you'd like. :)

 If you can't play it here you can see it at this link...

    Wow, that is so cool, Natalie! Congratulations on your win! I didn't even know that show was still on the air. So your hubby broke out of his conservative shell, eh? Must have been a blast!

    Thank you all so very much! We are very excited. My husband is usually so conservative and I'm not really into 'spirts' and supernatural stuff but my pal Coach D. died about a week before and I tease Keith he jumped into his body and 'went for it'. Coach D. was a big gambler and played the ponies w/ me a lot!!! I really was thinking of stopping but the most conservative person I know went for it. Really crazy :) Thanks again everyone!!!

    geez, Natalie, that's a BIG deal!! I have not seen that show in ages. What a great win you made. I like how you decided everything until the very end and the way you flew down the steps when they called for you to come down. You lucky lucky lady, and your hubbie seems really fun!
