About Me

I am a wife and a mother to three adorable children.  My husband is a pastor, which makes me...a pastor's wife.  If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would be in a church let alone be married to a pastor, the resounding scream would be,"NO"!  God has brought me to places I have never thought I would end up let alone feel equipped for.  

A few interesting facts about me:  
  • I am an introvert, but fake the other one well.  At the end of every Sunday, I am exhausted. :)
  • I mop the floors at least once a week, because they "feel" dirty.
  • I hate mess, but hate cleaning. Love/Hate. 
  • I get annoyed too easily. (working on that...)
  • I started sewing and quilting at least 2 years ago and despite the best intentions, I have yet to finish a project.  I totally finished a king size quilt! :)
  • Watching my husband interact with our daughter warms my heart.
  • Breastfeeding is burdensome to me, but I refuse to buy something God has equipped me to make.
  • I am uncomfortably tight cheap with money.
  • I hate folding laundry.
  • I have a twin sister and secretly (not anymore) am thankful to God I didn't conceive any.
  • I have a younger brother, whom I adore. 
  • Incidentally, my husband is convinced my real family is out there somewhere...separated at birth. :)
  • I love sleep.  
  • My ideas are the best and God consistently reminds me that they aren't.
  • I love clothes.  I have never paid retail value for any clothing item. EVER.
  • I taught elementary and special education for five years before becoming a stay-at-home mom.
  • I forget everything.  It drives my "supernatural memory" equipped husband crazy.
  • I am a perfectionist and a procrastinator.  Worst. Combination. Ever.
  • Bi-annually, I get the urge to purge.
  • I like organization, but am not always organized.
  • I have a love/hate relationship with exercise.  Especially running.
  • Natural light during daytime hours is my favorite, dark rooms make me anxious.
  • If I wasn't worried about gaining 100 pounds, I would eat cake and ice cream multiple time a day.
  • I drive too fast.
  • I yell too much. (working on that too).
  • Sometimes I act weird just to make my daughter laugh.
  • I sing everyday, sometimes all day....now my daughter does too.
  • We have Disney, Broadway, and hymn sings in our home daily.  My infant son just stares at us...soon he will be powerless to join.
  • I graduated Summa Cum Laude and my kids don't care.
  • I am a classically trained Soprano I and NO ONE cares.
  • Heavy metal music stresses me out.
  • I love the grocery store.  It is peaceful at 5 am.  
  • I find it invigorating to save money with coupons, but am too lazy to spend time clipping them.
  • I am a worrier thinker.  I worry think all of the time, even when I sleep.  I worry think all of the time. I worry think about worrying thinking.  
  • Sarcasm is fun.
  • I DO NOT enjoy talking on the phone.  I find it awkward...especially when saying goodbye.  It's me, not you.
  • Waking up before 6 is excruciating for me.  But worth it. 
  • My husband is my pastor...forever. 
  • I seldom cry.  I want to, but can't.
  • Quiet people and people who don't smile make me nervous.
  • Pet Peeves: Open cabinet doors, chewing with mouth open, standing in doorways or pathways, indecisiveness, and talking to someone who isn't listening. 
  • If I were a millionaire, I would most likely still clean my own house......but I would hire a chef.  
  • I hate summer because my hair never looks nice.
  • I love winter because I am ALWAYS 1000 degrees. (I feel anxious when I think of menopause) 
I have nothing figured out...nothing...but can, at any moment, fool anyone into thinking I do!  

I am an unlikely pastor's wife, raising pastor's kids. Perpetually behind on laundry and housework, loving almost every minute of it.
