Happy Mother's Day

Well, Mother's Day is off to a rough start, but in honor of my mother, here is a little about her....

My mother had me at a very young age and raised me for the most part as a single mother. She was very lucky in the men department though, and always had an admirer (or 2!!!) wanting to marry her! It was almost ridiculous at how fast a man would want to marry my mom...I'm talking within a month of meeting her they were popping the question! I obviously didn't inherit that trait from her. :) Anyway, she always struggled to make ends meet, but managed somehow to feed my dreams of singing, dancing, playing the flute & piccolo, acting, etc by coming up with money to keep me in classes for all of my silly, lofty dreams. I even managed to get Best Dressed at school in the 6th grade because she allowed me to charge up her credit card to get cute school clothes that year. My mom is the funniest, smartest, most creative and quick-witted woman I have ever come across! She has kept me laughing throughout the years with her practical jokes and lightning fast sense of humor. I'm thankful for everything that makes her unique and for all that she does for me and for Austin.

I love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day!

Your mom is hot! Is that 'now' picture at the Boulder Dam Hotel?

Ha! Thanks...yes, she is! :-)

The kids in school all used to call her Wonder Woman...they thought she looked like Linda Carter. That same year my PE teacher had the major hots for her too.

And, yes, that's at the Boulder Dam Hotel.
