A brand new start!

I'm really trying to get back in to LJ so this is my brand spanking new journal.  I'm always looking for new friends.
So, if you don't know me here's a little something something about me!


I'm 31
I'm married to Gareth.  We've been together since April 28th, 2000.  We were married May 4th, 2009 in the US Virgin Island.  He's the greatest! and 100% Irish.
Layla is our daughter, born Sept 3, 2009.  Yes, I was pregnant when I got married :p
I'm pretty open about a lot of things.  I use adult language.  I dont mean to be offensive sometimes but I will speak how I feel.
I use to be a very shy person, but as I've gotten older I'm getting over that (see previous line)
I'm half American, half Korean.
I'm a stay at home mom to a very active toddler.  She is my world!
I'm currently a pescatarian which means I'm vegetarian that eats fish/seafood.  I did the low carb Adkins thing that caused me to give up meat!
I am struggling with weight loss.  I lots 80 lbs, got preg, gained 59 lbs back, I'm currently down 20-25(depends on the day)
I hope to be back down to my pre-pregnancy weight so I can go on to lose the 50-70 more I wanted to a few years ago.
I love cooking, gardening, crafting, bad tv shows and shoes.
I'm a little dyslexic and have ADD.  I'm horrible with directions so don't even ask!
I try really hard to be a good person and a great friend but I'm such a slacker and a procrastinator.  (personalities flaws ;)
I like to think I have a good sense of humor, I am a smart ass.  I get my smart ass sense of humor from my grandpa and dad, so it's in the genes!
I use a lot of !!!!!!'s, internet slang, abbreviations and emoticons.
I'm a fun loving person that loves to have a good time!
I'm very chilled and laid back.... most of the times. Sometimes I can be uppity, angry and bitchy!  Yes I am a girl!
I have the worse sense of directions!  I get lost all the damn time!
I love me some football, The Carolina Panthers are my team and don't talk shit about them inless you want an honest, adult response ;)
I also love me some All Blacks, New Zeland Rugby.
I like to joke that I'm bilingual, meaning I can also speak European. I use words like cling film(plastic wrap) and fairy liquid(dish washing soap)
I'm from Valdese, NC.  I live in Charlotte, NC.  I do not have a thick southern accent and try really hard not to!  As hard as I try sometimes it sneaks out :p
I have 3 cats.  Sasha is the oldest and soo pissy! She's also a um chunky kitty.  Jimi is the middle cat, he's my bitch and a spoiled brat but I <3 him.  Honey is the youngest, she's very sweet and loving! Jim and Honey are Sasha's off spring.
I was raised by my paternal grandparents, which was probably the best thing that could have happened in my crazy life.  My grandpa means the world to me! My grandmother passed away almost 6 years ago. That was the day my world was turned upside down.
My dad was an alcoholic but has been sober for over 15 yrs now.  My mom wasn't around very much when I was younger.  It is what it is and I've learned to accept them and everything that happened in the past.  It made me into the person I am today.  I do have a better relationship with them now.
I have a sister I was very close to.  She lives in Rhode Island now with her husband, 4 children, 2 dogs and our mom.  I miss her dearly but we still keep in touch.  She was a huge part of my life growing in.  Jenne is 4 years older than me.
I have 3 brother-in-laws(including my sister's hubby) and a sister-in-law.  I have a very Irish MIL & FIL.
I have 2 BFF's that are like sister's to me.  I love them like fam!  They mean a lot to me.
I love music, its a big part of my life.  My dad taught me to appreciate music and I want to pass that along to my daughter.
I love good movies and going to a good concert.
I love color, sparkles, and bright shiny things.  Yes I am a bit of a mag pie.
I love sexual innuendo (that's what she/he said is my favorite!) sometimes I act and giggle like I'm 12 :p,  and I love randomness!


That's all I can think to say about myself for now.  If you want to know anything else about me just ask.  I'm pretty open about most things.  If not I may tell you to eff off, but not in a bad, mean way ;)


/end rambling... oh yeah, I like to ramble sometimes :p



I'm keeping this entry public but will most likely make others private cuz that's how I am!

You use adult language?

I'm so glad we have the same twisted sense of humor :).

Love you!

Fuck yeah I do :D

It's hard to find people that truly get my sense of humor. Gareth hears the worst of it. lol Sometimes I even surprise myself w/ what I say!

Love you to!

I think it's funny when you and I find something so funny and G looks at us like we're crazy.

G looks at me like I'm crazy on a daily basis! When you aren't around and I have to giggle at my own jokes, I get the look ;)
