I borrowed this from my friend Kristin because I think it's a great idea! I'd like to get to know my readers better. You don't have to give away private information or credit cards numbers (you can send me that info in a private message - ha!), but let me know who you are. C'mon . . . you know you want to share!

Hobbies/Interests: reading, embroidery, spending time with friends and family, aerobics, traveling
Pets: 1 weenie dog named Maverick and 1 long-haired black cat named Bandit (I named them before I met my AF cargo pilot husband- he didn't name the pets by "pilot call signs" and always feels like a fighter pilot wanna-be when people find out their names- hahaha)

  1. I'll bite, even though I'm not really into these sort of things, but you don't know much about me.

    Name: Jen Spurlock

    Live in: FTW, TX, currently. In a house that is smack dab in a historical community, that thinks very highly of themselves.

    Tell me a little about your family: I originally lived in IL, but was born in AZ. Got my Masters in Chemistry. DH [Alan] has lived everywhere, including - Saudia Arabia, St. Croix, Washington, Kansas, KY, and TX (there are probably others, but they escape me for right now). He went to TXTech & got his BS in EE, where he now works for Lockheed Martin as a Test Engineer on the JSF Project. Frankly, I think his job is wayy cooler than mine. Whereas he thinks, my job is wayy cooler than his. We met each other on Match.com & officially met at the BN in Sundance Square. We married in '06 at Bass Performance Hall on a Friday in March. We have visited Ireland & the British Isles, brought home a stow-a-way on our return trip from Scotland 07'. The stow-a-way is now 14mos bouncing giggling pre-tot named Conner. He is the light of our lives!

    Favorite Quote:"I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant who I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." - Theodore I. Rubin
