Pieces of me that you may or may not know...

Today is Top 10 Tuesday and as I racked my brain thought of something to write I kept thinking about how my blog is. It is real, it is me.
I write about things that matter to me. Yep I know a little bit selfish there. :)
My blog is an extension of how I am doing, how I am feeling, what God is doing my life. It is like I said...ME.

So in saying that I decided that I would put down 10 things you may or may not know about me.

1. I am very shy.
I have a hard time making small talk to just one person. I am getting better but still hard.

2. My hubby and I have been separated twice and have gotten back to together.
As I have said earlier we were married young. We were both immature and being apart really made us grow up. We now have an amazing marriage but one that we both work on really hard. We found out that we are stronger because we chose to stay together.

3. I love to be organized but am a huge procrastinator.
I tend to prefer to curl up with a good book or watch a movie than fill out paperwork or make phone calls that I don't want to make.

4. I have been pregnant 6 times but only have 3 children here on earth with us.
I lost one, had one, lost one, had one...see the pattern. I will admit it was really scary thinking about having more children after Sarah.

5. I have been a Christian since I was 7.
I was staying at my sister's for the summer and went to VBS. It was there that I felt the call to follow God. I was baptized when I was 17. I joined a church in Vancouver Island and had our daughter dedicated there. Now I attend a church in a community about half an hour away that I LOVE!!

6. OK this one if you have been reading my blog at all you know. We are looking to adopt.
I am in the process this week of filling out paperwork so that we can apply for foster to adopt program. I really would also love to adopt a Waiting Child from possibly China or Ethiopia but it is not in the financial cards for us at this time. I realized that I want to be a Mom more than it matter where from.

7. I draw inspiration from several blogs.
These women really inspire me and I love reading about their lives and walks with God.
LynetteJenileeMarciaMichelleCarlaSharla and Aurie. Just to name a few.

8. I long to buy an old house and remodel it.
I am not sure if I could end of flipping it or not but boy what fun it would be. Really get my creative juices flowing.

9. I would love to find a way to work from home so that I could supplement our income.
I am crafty and have been recently thinking about how I could make money selling some stuff. Also love to do data entry however I have no idea how to get started working from home for that here in Canada. Any suggestions I would love.

10. I am very competitive.
I have a hard time letting my children make their own path. I always want to push them even though I know I shouldn't. I love to play card games, or really any kind. I also LOVE to be outside and quading and sledding are some of my favorite activities.

I am linking up today with Angie. Stop by and see what some other great top 10's there are.


  1. I love that list of things that you shared! I did not know about the adoption (or had forgotten...I'm like that). SOOOOO exciting. We need to do coffee and talk,girl! Sept is coming and I may just drop by...don't be shy. I'm super good at small talk. LOL! I do it for my husband's living. :-)

    1. Yes we do need to get together!! It crazy how close we live and never get together.

  2. That was a really fun list to read. I'm right there with you on #3. It doesn't seem like it should be that way, but I just can't help it.

    1. Its crazy isn't it. I'm working on it, but it's much more appealing to curl up with that book. LOL
