Thursday 13

I  decided not to do anything related to St. Patty's day because I just have to be different. ;)


13 Things you may not know about me.

1. I have a yellow rose tattoo on my left shoulder in memory of my father. We both love yellow roses and I did not know that was his favorite flower until he died and my uncle asked me what my fav flower was so we could put them on his casket. I told him I had one but would prefer to put Daddy's fav flower on there and he said it was yellow roses, so I got the tattoo a few months later.

2. I kill plants. It's not pre-meditated. I just can never figure out if they need water or not. So I usually starve them or drown them.

3. I never planned nor wanted to be a stay at home mom. When my son was born I couldn't imagine leaving him with anyone else so it just worked out that way. Now that he is almost 7, I'm glad I was blessed enough to be able to stay at home.

4. I got my nose pierced recently but I had a really bad sinus infection and kept rubbing my nose. I had to take it out for two days and it grew up. :(

5. I got married in Vegas.

6. When I had my daughter I was put to sleep and they took my daughter out and my gallbladder at the same time. I had gallstones and they had to take her 6 weeks early because of it. But she was fine, beautiful healthy little girl. Thank God.

7. Purple is my fav color. I would drown my house in it if my husband would let me. We have to comprise on that.

8. I have no sensor between my brain and mouth. I keep working on it with no success.

9. I met my husband online a little over 10 yrs ago. It was on ICQ. He lived in Los Angeles and I in KY. I moved there for 2 years and then he moved here (KY)  and we have been here for about 6 yrs.

10. I'm directional challenged. Couldn't read a map if my life depended on it.

11. I'm hooked on the reality shows on MTV. It's a secret of mine, guess it's out now.

12. I finally learned to drive a 5 speed at 30 years old.

13. Been married almost 8 yrs and my husband is still the funniest, kindest, gentlest man I know.

Hi, I found your blog through your comment left at a post about interracial marriage at mommy-multitasking.

The yellow tattoo sounds interesting although personally, I don't think I can bear the pain of needless much more the pain of printing my skin. I love it clean and tattoo-free.

My dream is to be a stay-at-home mom and be able to run a home-business to support my husband in generating funds. I'm a teacher but is now preparing for a big career change - becoming a full-time blogger so I could stay at home once the babies start coming.

You're right by saying that you're "thankful for being able to stay at home". A lot of moms love it too but circumstances just don't allow them.

I gather you're in an interfaith marriage? Would you consider the idea of being interviewed about the challenges of interfaith marriage and be featured at my blog?

Here are some examples of a Couple profile that I do:

Filipino-Thai interracial and interfaith marriage

Filipina-Italian interracial and interfaith marriage

Please let me know. Thanks. :)

You can either drop me a comment at my blog or email me at I'm looking to hearing from you.
