Alright, I know this doesn't have anything to do with cakes, but I thought it would be fun to get to know y'all a little better by asking everyone to list three random facts about themselves. Sound like fun?

I'll start:


1. I met my husband online, in a random chat room (not a dating service).

2. I was born on the same day as Elijah Wood (Yeah, Frodo and I share a special bond icon_rolleyes.gif)

3. I'm allergic to some breeds of long-hair cats.


Okay... now you!

post #20 of 408

My turn!!!

1.) I met my husband 4 years ago at my parents house. He came out with a friend of my Dad's so that my brother could work on his truck. The lady that adopted my husband has been a good friend of my Dad's for years...and my Dad has actually known my husband (Rob) since Rob was about 16....but I never met him until the day he stopped by my parents house. It took 2 months before he asked me out on a date, and we've been together ever since! We just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary.

2.) I will probably end up moving to Franklin, TN some day. My husband lived there for several years while working in the music industry and he has many friends there now. Plus my best friend and my God Daughter live there, so moving there would be fun!

3.) I have a full time job and I HATE IT. I can't wait to have a baby and be a stay at home mommy!!!

post #21 of 408

can a newbie play too??

1.. I met my husband through a personal ad in the paper--this was the days before online dating services. He's working in Louisiana these days on post-hurricane stuff, and so that's why I'm on here so much!

2. My daughter was a member of the Kilgore Rangerettes--if you're not from Texas, you may not know who they are. They are a well known dance team--you might have seen them in the Macy's parade (red, white and blue uniforms, big white hats). Their trademark is being able to kick their hats--and my daughter can do that!!

3. I have a secret ambition to write a young adult novel but I spend most of my spare time doing cakes instead so the novel hasn't materialized yet!

thanks for letting me play!

OK, I'll give this a try.

1. I gave birth, at home, at the age of 42. 14 years after my last child. I have four children, a 21 year old daughter who got married in April; 18 and 16 year old sons; and my 2 year old daughter. I am now a SHAM after having been back in the work force for 8 years.

2. My husband is thirteen years YOUNGER than I am. He kept coming around and wouldn't leave me alone so I married him.

3. I am 6th generation native Floridian on my mother's side.

Wow, these responses are GREAT!

missmersh: The three things I listed were hardly interesting, just random stuff! We want to know ANYTHING about you! You choose!

I have more in common with some of you than I thought, this is really fun reading all of the responses!


My favorites so far:

freddie's comment about the hot guy who loves to dust - I need one too icon_lol.gif

blessBeckysbaking telling us that all she thinks about is cakes and sex icon_eek.gif (no, honey, you're not alone... icon_redface.gif)

Mac's 'so much for goody-two-shoes' crack. I was the supposed goody-two-shoes of my family when I was young. (I have a tattoo too, it's in kanji which translates into 'strong woman', on my ankle icon_cool.gif)

pinkbunny being married to Bon Jovi and Johnny Depp - but, they're married to me, too icon_surprised.gif

ThePastryDiva has more male friends than female - just like me!

nola's "happy feet" made me laugh out loud - I do that! icon_biggrin.gif

denise2434 got married when she was 18, and so did I!


Keep 'em coming!

I wanna play too -

1) I'm originally from Canada. London, Ont to be exact. My mom's side is from Nova Scotia, but my dad's side is from PEI, so DH teases me about being 1/2 step away from Cajun. For those of you that don't know, Cajuns are Acadians (E. Coast Fr. Canadians) that migrated south and mixed with mostly Caribbean people living in LA.

2) I used to sing in a ladies barbershop-style chorus and hope to start singing again once I'm done with all my cake classes. Rehearsals are usually same nights as class, plus there's the whole cost issue.

3) The bravest thing I've ever done was move to Breckenridge, CO, just because it sounded like a good idea. I didn't know anybody, had no job, and very little money saved up. I was very unhappy with my job and hated the TX heat so I told myself that if I could sell my car & get a decent price for it, I would give myself a new place to live for my birthday. I went into a blind panic the day it sold because until then I didn't think I would really go through with it. Drank a few margaritas with friends, felt better, and moved a month later. Footnote: Missed my family too much so moved back to TX 3 years later.

ok, here goes..

1. I was in the Navy and my husband was in the Army we were stationed in different places and didn't know each other. We both ended up with injuries (not service related) and ended up in the same Veterens Hospital.
We met there and after 3 months got married. We have been married 30 years and we adoped a beautiful baby girl after we had tried for 9 years to have one of our own. She is 21 now and still beautiful and a great person. She will graduate next May from college and will be an R.N.

2. I have done every craft there is (according to my husband), but cake is my favorite...and his.

3. I am a hair stylist and have been for many years and I am looking forward to retirement and just doing cakes and cookies.

This is so fun to read all the responses! Lets see....

1. My hubby & I after 4 years dating, got married in Las Vegas (we've been married about a year & 1/2 now). It is so great to always have a "logical" excuse to go to Vegas each year for our anniversary!!

2. We up & moved from both our hometowns outside Seattle WA for Des Moines IA a few years ago so my hubby could get his Doctorate in Physical Therapy, we are getting ready to move back this December (WOO HOO FINALLY!!)

3. I LOVE doing all kinds of crafts, ie: decorating cakes, restoring/re-finishing furniture, doing all kinds of invitations/cards, all different kinds of arts.... But until I can make a living at one of those things I do computer support/technical support. icon_smile.gif

Great Post!!

Can I have a turn too?
1. I met my husband on a BBS (what sites were called BEFORE the internet took off!) It was local and a whole group of us would meet for brunch and parties once a month. It took us two years to get together because one of us was always dating someone else. But now he's mine and I'm keeping him!

2. I too have tried almost every craft known to mankind. My favorites being cake decorating, beading (yeah, I make my own beads too), and knitting or crocheting.

3. I just found out that I am a Cherokee princess (of sorts).... doing genealogical research I discovered that I am a descendant of a Cherokee Chief.
