Tag You're It!

So I was taged forever ago by Jess to do the seven things. I am sorry it has taken me awhile to get to it but better late than never. I am resting this morning with a tummy ache so I thought this wold be a good time to blog.

Rules:
A. Link to the person who tagged you.
B. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about you.
C. Tag 7 random people at the end, and include links to their blogs.

1. I grew up on a tiny little island of the coast of North Carolina, Hatteras Island. It is the most beautiful place in the world and if there was more than fishing, real estate, teaching, and owning your own business as options for employment I would move back there and raise my family. It is paradise for a kid, so much to explore, ocean, sounds, fish, marsh. I like small town feel where you feel free to let your kids roam outside all day and not worry about them.

2. Hubbs and I work with a mission agency doing Mobilization. I think this has become the hardest thing in the world for us to explain when people ask what we do. We dont go overseas, but help other people to do so, and encourage everyone to get involved in missions in someway. We raise our own support, and work full time at this. Last year we packed up everything and moved to California to work at the headquarters of our agency with a program called INSIGHT. There is so much going on here and we absolutely love it! By the way you should check out this class that is taught all over the country, it changed our lives, and I promise you wont be the same afterwards either. www.perspectives.org (the first website is horrible and we are aware of that and revamping it as I type, so stop back by in a few months and check it out again)

3. Hubbs and I were married on the Beach in Hatteras. It was the greatest wedding ever. I wore a white sarong from India and He wore shorts and a white cuban style shirt. My girls wore sarongs as well, and his guys were also in shorts and beachy shirts. It was absolutely beautiful. All of our guests came out and sat in the sand, I walked down an isle lined with seashells. It was totally laid back, and the best day of my life.

4. In college I owned 35 pair of underwear so I only did laundry once a month. I thought this was a genius plan, everyone else thought it was wierd. I just wore my pants several times before they were taged as dirty, and hung my shirts back up at the end of the day if they didnt smell. I thought it was great and saved a good bit of money this way as well.

5. I pretended to be a college student for about 3 years after I graduated. I am three years older than Hubbs. I graduated college in 03, we started dating that summer. When school started that year he was a sophmore. I spent a ton of time on campus with him so everyone thought I was still a student and i just didnt correct them. Our close friends knew my age, but I wasnt about to correct the people we hung out with ocassionally that I was actully older . =) I loved it, and played with them too, they would ask how exams were and I would say, Oh I have been done for awhile, they were great! Which was not a lie, just a dicieving truth.

6. I love photography. Studied it some in college and then worked in a studio for 3 years, four christmases. we judge our life by christmas in studio photography, because if you can survive that you can survive anything. I love working with babies especially newborns. Since we have been in Cali, I have not been able to do as much with my camera, but we just set up a studio for work and i cant wait to go play!

7. I love to bake and decorate cakes. I will find any excuse to make dessert for freinds or family. I love to be challenged and to conquer. I have thought several times about making this into a buisness but dont feel like I have the resources or knowledge to do so. As of now, I just do it for fun.

so there it is , me in a nutshell. That was a little harder than I thought it would be. Thanks for the challenge Jess.
