I am married to a sweet guy named Jeff. I don't have kids but our German Wirehair, Tuffy, keeps me busy.
I love fashion, going out to eat and sitting in a backyard around a fire. I sing karaoke- even though I'm an awful singer and I try to surround myself with good people who love to laugh.
Any veggies, pizza and even though I'm a vegetarian, every once in a while, I order the biggest slab of prime rib on the menu (medium rare)
Things I Can't Stand:
Rude people, uncomfortable shoes and wet lettuce (I'm a big salad person and if the lettuce hasn't been properly dried, it makes the dressing watered down and the entire salad gets soggy..GROSS!)
I don't have a favorite, but I do enjoy a good dive bar. Pool tables and dart boards are always a plus, oh- and the music should never be too loud unless there's a live band or it's a bar with a dance floor. I mean, seriously, why should we have to listen to some crappy old song blaring over the speakers when all I really want to do is hear the the conversation at the table. Then again- I do wear headphones everyday for work, so my hearing is probably less then fabulous.
Favorite Country Artists:
This is a tough one. For current artists- Eric Church, Zac Brown Band, Kip Moore and . I LOVE 90s country and Don Williams greatest hits is a go-to if I want a classic country fix.
I'm a speed walker. For anyone who doesn't know what that REALLY is, you're probably saying "so what?" But for those who've witnessed how truly idiotic it looks, let's just say, "you know what I'm talking about". I get laughed at and taunted on a daily basis.
I've taken up running in the last year and a half and have noticed the snickers from passersby stop if you're in a jog.
Because my sister just gave birth to her baby girl a little over 6 weeks ago, this article from Babble.com, written by Alison Faulkner, caught my eye.
Not only are the "8 things you shouldn't say to a pregnant woman" interesting- because I can't believe anyone would actually say them- BUT THEN reading the comments from women who'd actually had worse uttered to them while they were with child...CRAZINESS! First- the 8 things...
1. "Are you sure you're not having twins?!"
2. "You can't possibly go any longer! Your stomach looks like it's going to explode!"
3."My wife had 5 kids and she never got as large as you are right now."
4. "How are you feeling, other than large?"
5. "Now you're sure your doctors think everything is ok? You just seem really large for this stage of the pregnancy."
6. "No offense…but are you pregnant?"
7. "So it looks like you've gained even more weight with this baby than you did with the last?"
8. "You get so big when you're pregnant you might as well add another baby in there!"

Now for a couple of the comments from women...
When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, my neighbor asked me if I was having a girl because my prettiness had been taken away (!) On top of that I was having a boy.
When I was 39 weeks,I got accused of stealing a watermelon,because all I had was a belly,so i pulled my shirt up and said No melon here, but your welcome to come to the delivery.
Ladies- anyone make a crazy comment to you while you were pregnant? Post it below!
