Mother of 9 beautiful children, I've learned to live every moment to its fullest.
I'm a huge fan of Wrestling! I've been watching since the 80's. I currently watch Raw & Smackdown. Wrestling is something that we share as a family. Its a great feeling to share something like that together :)
I'm blessed that I've been able to find my soulmate. I wasn't actually sure if he existed in my universe for a long time. He is my air, my better half..my heart. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for loving all of me, even my flaws. Most of all, thank you for being who you are.
I'm also a fan of comics. I don't get to read as many titles as I'd like, but I love it when I can go to the comic book store! Its like my happy fantasy place. I'm always open to trying a new title. I miss Birds of Prey :(
I'm a HUGE thrift store and DIY person. I find alot of great things in thrift stores, some of which, I take and alter for my own style!
