I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
If you don't already know (though I have a feeling you do), I am a huge geek! My big love is Harry Potter, but others have wormed their way into my heart as well...including the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. (PS if you have kids, you'll want to try another series she wrote called "The Underland Chronicles." It's probably for 7-12 year olds, but I really liked the series anyway and it's why I got to reading the Hunger Games).
The second movie in the HG series, 'Catching Fire,' comes out in November and I can't even begin to tell you how pumped I am. I already love Jennifer Lawrence and having her reprise her role as Katniss is worth it on so many levels, but the theatrical trailer just gives you goosebumps! It did for me anyway.
Check it out and tell me what you think!
