Back Where I come From.

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Blogging just seems so much easier to show up to when someone already gives you the blog post prompts. Therefor I will be jumping on the blog challenge that was set up over here. The concept is the same as the challenge from may, and I'm sure my participation will be the same as well (or the lack there of...). Either way, sounds like fun today, so here goes.

Day 1.)  Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.

I come from a town in Indiana that everyone loves to hate. It is not the worst place I have ever been, nor is it the greatest. Like most people that leave, you really only miss one thing, the people that you left there. I am the baby of five, in a blended family. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and I am clearly the coolest of them all. My mom was married once before and had the 2 boys and my oldest sister. When my parents married it was my dad's first marriage, and my sister was his first born at the age of 52!!!!! Fourteen months later they had me and had finally reached perfection, thus the reason for me being the baby. I always felt pretty close to my oldest sister, and I was born a daddy's girl. My brother Toney has forever picked on me and has raised his son to do the same, deep down I know it's love, and that he is really impressed with his baby sister's drinking ability. I didn't truly value my relationship with my mom and closest in age sister until I moved out (they are 2 peas in a pod!). I talk to my mom almost daily, and I am still in awe that my sister is now a mommy (a great one at that!).  My parents are still married and I really hope I can be a little like my dad (sweet and soft spoken), and a little like my mom (hello, sassy pants!). I'm not sure I have a desire to ever move back there, but visits are always welcome.
All of us at my sister's wedding. How cute are my parents?

  1. I'm with you on your first line. I love that I'm being told what to write. Indiana, eh? I bet those winters were tough. I always joke God doesn't give us a harsh winter cause a TX summer is hard enough.

    1. Ugh I hate snow, so the winters in Indiana were rough! Texas is certainly a hot spot! I have family all over TX and it is super hot!
