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 :)

    Thanks guys-It's all in good fun-why not :) Yeah Chris, we'd all be drinking the Kool-Aid and all be mistakin' the stained glass fragments for ice :) And won the one I wanted to win-lucky you :) Ohh and Chris-the voters didn't specify-only voted for Debbie-I guess we'll have to keep 'em guessing. Gwen-Next year I will customize one for you-thanks again everyone :)

    Ha! Oh no, I won the "Kool-Aid" award!? Egads, now the cat is out of the bag....I can still go with "on accident" though, I suppose. Fun contest, Natalie, thanks for sponsoring it! I figured you would win 1 or 2 categories for sure. Which Debbie are you referring to in #20?
