Day 1 - Introduction

Day 1 - Introduce, recent picture, 15 interesting facts

Well, my name is Jessica if you could not tell by my signature. I am a 24 year old wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I grew up in the suburbs of Philly with my parents and older brother [older by 8 years] but now live in the beautiful Midwest. I always knew I would travel out of state for college so when I picked a school in Indiana my parents were not at all surprised. I graduated in 3.5 years with a degree in Elementary Education [K-6 certified] and also met my Prince Charming, Dustin, while there. Since graduating I have been a babysitter, a substitute teacher, and a newborn photographer on labor and delivery. I have been pregnant 20 of the 34 months we have been married and we are looking forward to a nice break this time around. I love to scrapbook, read in the tub, drink hot tea, and photography is my number one hobby. I would love to get back into teaching when the girls are a little older, but my dream job is to be an author. I think that is good for an introduction!

Here is a picture from October 30th, so very recent.

15 interesting facts. [I'm really not that interesting]

1. In middle school I was attacked by a dog and had to have my nose glued back together, the cartilage is still messed up.

2. My mom and I got to model matching outfits on the jumbo tron at a Flyers Game. I think it was even on Mother's Day.

3. I raised Seeing Eye Puppies.

4. I raised and showed rabbits for 4-H.

5. I only cut my hair twice a year, I don't dye it.

6. I can read very fast and remember everything. I read the first three Harry Potter books in one night.

7. I love to write and have written several short stories.

8. I used to collect cows/cow print items.

9. I compulsively pick my eyebrows. Parts of them are missing.

10. Along with #9, I have compulsive tendencies. I used to do things in twos and I used to have to step an even number of times in sidewalk squares. I have rehabbed myself to a better place presently.

11. More seriously, I almost died when I was 2 due to kidney reflux. I was set to have surgery but the doctors found that is somehow fixed itself. It is still a mystery to them!

12. Both Brooke and Molly were sunny side up babies. I consider this about me because I had to push them out that way!

13. When I was a little girl I got lost in Disney World TWICE. On two separate trips.

14. I was almost struck by lightening on a missions trip to Mexico.

15. [I personally think] I have a knack for photography.
