Where you from?: Orlando, FL

How old are you? (only if you want to share): 31

What do you do for a living?: I work in a hospital as a Respiratory Therapist. I get to work all over the place – the ER, the OR, ICU, delivery room. I love it! Unlike nursing, I don’t have to specialize, so I can help deliver a baby one minute and then turn around and help an old COPD-er take his last breath.

Wedding date: We’re considerng getting married sometime in either 2013 or 2014. We’ll see. We’re not officially engaged yet, but we’re in no huge rush. We’ve been dating/living together for 5 years and we’re already married in our hearts, as corny as that sounds! Actually, we’ll probably skip the engagement part since I don’t really want an e-ring (I could never wear it at work anyways) and just elope.  πŸ™‚

What was your favorite toy growing up?: My stuffed bear named Bobo. I’ve had him since I was 3. He’s on a shelf in my closet right now.

What is the one confort food that you still eat that reminds you of your childhood? Tuna casserole. My mom used to make that a lot.

I loved watching Rainbow Brite when I was a little girl it was just my Mom and I at home then, πŸ™‚ I also loved watching Jem and the Hollograms on tv too. I had a fun childhood when it was just my mom and I then later on in 1990 my mom started to date which was good for me. I was glad that my mom was happy again. πŸ™‚ In 1991 my mom and her friend eloped to Las Vegas for their wedding in the white chapel which I stayed at her bestfriends house and her and her husband went out parting late at night. We all had a fun time her and her husbands oldest son baby sat us while they went out.

Eeeeeekkkk!  My comfort food I liked when I was a child was hot dogs with mustard, onion, sweet pickle relish, cheese and chilli, potatoe chips, dr pepper. I’m currently unemployed and I miss working for a Vetrenarian Compounding Pharmacy. πŸ™ *Sighs* I wish I stayed there and retired later on down the road! :/

My mom held onto my She-Ra Castle for years and years, I still played with it when I was 9, 10 and 11 years old! πŸ™‚ She never asked me Angela do you want me to sale it in a garage sale and I asked her no mom. I wanna hold onto it for my kids so they will know their mom when she was a little girl she loved playing with it! *giggles* I never would have thought about the charmkins, smurfs, carebears, and barbi dolls and way too many for me to name from my fun childhood days! πŸ˜‰
