all about me

I am getting very excited about the Dallas Blogger Meet up coming at the end of the month.

The Undomestic Momma

For you non-bloggers that read my blog:   We are a bunch of blog ladies getting together to hang out and get to know one another in real life!  I can't wait to meet some of my internet friends.  I have been blogging and tweeting with some of these friends for years.  There are some ladies coming to the meet up I have never met so, I  am joining in on a post entitled "getting to know you." 

My name is Angie and I was born and raised here in Texas.  I love all things Texas!

I'm married to my best friend, Gary.  We met  in 1996 and were married in September of 2000. 
We have two children.  Layla is age 5 and Hayden is 2. 

We also have two fur babies, Harley

and Bogey.

I love to cook.  I really enjoy being in the kitchen.  I love that {usually} my family eats what I cook!


I love Texas country music and the perfect date night is when Gary takes me out for dinner and dancing.   I really like all kinds of music as well.  I'm not partial only to country music I LOVE all music. 

 I could eat Mexican food for breakfast lunch and dinner and margarita's are good too.

We really enjoy being outside.  Usually you can find us playing outside in the backyard when the weather is nice.  We love to go camping any time we can get away.

I love the color purple, but I also like pink and royal blue too.

I have a huge bruise on my nose right now. Every time I look at it I giggle.  Hayden and I were wrestling and he head butted me.  Ouch.  The bruise gets darker everyday, but luckily it doesn't hurt anymore.  I wonder what people think when they see it?

I have a love affair with cheesecake.  I really need it in my life.  My thighs need it in small doses only.

I love Target.

I grew up in a very small town and about 70 people were in my senior class.

One of my favorite things ever is a clean house on a spring day with the windows open. Mercy!

Gary and I laugh a LOT!  Our kids are so funny and they keep us on our toes.  We tend to be a tad sarcastic too.

I love to paint and repaint my fingernails and toenails.  I am always looking for a new nail color.  My hair is almost as bad, but not quite.  I am brunette, but this time of year I get a strong desire to highlight my brown hair.  Being blone is so fun in the summertime!

I never thought I'd be a stay at home mom.  I was very much into my career before I had kids, but now that I am a mom, this job is perfect for me and I LOVE IT!

My life isn't perfect and I realize that.  I have been through some rough stuff from time to time, but I am so thankful for all the things that shaped me into who I am today.  I am usually a very positive person.

Ok, I'll stop there...if you are going to the Dallas Blogger Meet up, jump over to Jenn's blog and link your post so we can  get to know you.
