How much do we have in common? Share your story!!

Posted by   + Show Post


Let's see how much we have in common!

To play along, post things about yourselves so we can all get to know you better.

For example, you can post where you live or used to live, how many kids you have, how many siblings you have, what you or your spouse does for a living, etc.

See what the other moms are sharing and if you find a mom that has something similar to you, quote that mom by clicking on the "QUOTE" button and share what you have in common! The more information you share about yourself, the more chances you will have of finding others that share your common subject.



A little about me.

I'm a Navy brat who became an Air Force wife.

While a Navy brat we lived in Indiana, where I was born, Connecticut, Virginia, Hawaii, North Carolina, Washington state, Scotland and now here in South Carolina.

I broke my elbow when I was six.

I'm a cereal junkie and refuse to admit how many different boxes we have in our home right now. I have been known to eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Though not necessarily all in the same day.

I have one sister who is 5 years older than me and she has two grown sons. I love being their aunt and now a great auntie to my oldest nephew's daughter, Kennedy Belle.

I was married 9 years before DH and I had our son who is now 13. Althought DH was in the Air Force for 22 years, we never moved.  He was stationed at the same base the entire time.

My mom lives about an hour away and we see her at least once a month. I lost my dad to stomach cancer last April. I still have one grandparent alive, my granny who just turned 92.  She's a pistol.  We love to play canasta when we are together.

Our family loves camping and we take the RV out  several times a year. Usually to the mountains,  the beach or the lake. We are headed to the upper part of South Carolina next month.

My first car was a royal blue VW Bug. Man, I loved that car.  My dream car would be a Jeep Wrangler, soft top, two doors. I can just see myself cruising around in it.

I don't have one single tattoo and neither does my husband. My 72 year old mom has four. 

We have a cat, a dog and a beta fish. 

I love the show Psych. Literally makes me LOL.

I have seen every episode of  the Brady Bunch multiple, multiple times, don't judge me. ;0)

Do you have pictures of your jewelry?

Quoting DanaG70:

 Hi!

I'm 43 and have 4 kids, Michael will be 20 in May, Samuel will be 18 in June, Keeley who is 16 and Jonathan who is 14. Only Keeley lives with us, Samuel and Jonathan live with their dad and Michael lives in Omaha.

I was born and raised in the military, born Army and raised Air Force. My mom divorced my bio-dad when I was 18 months and married my dad (step-dad) when I was 5, he raised us and is 100% my dad. We lived in Colorado where I was born, Washington state, England, Virginia and back to Colorado after my dad retired. We ended up in Kansas where I graduated High school, had all four of my children and married all 3 of my husbands.

I have been with my current husband Mike for nearly 13 years and will be married to him 9 years in May. Since marrying Mike we have moved to Virginia, Iowa, Nebraska and now Michigan.

We have one dog, three cats and two parakeets. We put two of our beloved dogs down last year, both due to cancer.

I am a SAHM now, but worked for 10 years as a CNA until I went into retail. I now design jewelry which I'm trying to sell online. I'm also a photographer but only as a hobby right now.

Due to injuries I got on my back while working as a CNA I can't do any high impact exercises, such as running, but I do enjoy hiking and walking on the beach of Lake Michigan which is only about 45 minutes from our house.

I am a former military wife. I am now a widow. I am 36 years old, living back in Pittsburgh after being in the UK for 2 years. I have a son(11) and a daughter(almost 5). I am very liberal and am not religious, even though I send my kids to Catholic school. I love to read, when I find the time. I love detectives and detective stories. I am a big admire of Benedict Cumberbatch and love SHERLOCK. I prefer coffee over tea. My favorite food is sushi. I don't drive. I have a hard time making friends with other women but have an easier time talking to men. And I am fairly girly but dress like a tomboy most of the time.
