30 day challenge

Day 1-Introduce, recent picture, 15 interesting facts

I’ve been reading about this 30 day challenge on some of the other blogs I follow.  I am currently is a sewing funk and thought it may be fun to share more about myself so here goes.

Hi my name is Jayme, which most of you know is a pseudonym.  It’s also a nickname so I guess it isn’t really a pseudonym after all.  I live in the Triangle area of NC, have been married almost 4 years now, and work in HR.  

As for a recent picture, I had a hard time finding one-at least one that I was willing to post.  I am always taking pictures of other people and other things but rarely myself.  I managed to find a decent one that my baby sister took while we were eating lunch.  She will also be upset if I don’t point out that she gave me the lovely butterfly clip that is attached to the crocheted rasta/snood/tam I am wearing.

The good stuff: 
  1. I consider myself to be a creative person but I get bored very easy.  I have been known to have multiple sewing, crocheting, and other craft projects going at once.  Like right now I have a dress and two tops cut out, another pinned, a blanket on my crochet hook, and have been hand painting a shirt.
  2.  My Mother was my best friend up until I got married when that honor went to my wonderful Husband.  My Mommy is still a close second though. Likethisclose.  I talk to my Mommy several times a week and love to hang out with her when we can.
  3.  I have never really had a career goal.  That may seem lame or lazy but it has always been more important for me to be happy in whatever it is that I am doing.  I am too free sprited to try and contain myself to one thing.  See #1.
  4.  One of my biggest fears is that I will never have children of my own.  
  5.  Reading Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady was one of the highlights from college.  Random but that book was hilarious and thought provoking at the same time.  
  6.  I have only been to one musical concert in my life and that was when John Legend performed at UNC for Homecoming my Senior Year.
  7. My crackberry is never far away.  I scold myself for being attached to it but it helps me stay as much on top of things as my personality will allow. 
8.     I love love love to travel.  We seriously have vacations booked through 2011 and know the places we want to visit in the next 5 years.
9. My favorite tv shows in no particular order are: channel 11 news, CSI, CSI: Miami, 30 Rock, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, Law and Order: SVU, Bones, Chef vs City, SouthLAnd, and HawthoRNe.
10. I am the oldest child by 9 1/2 years
11.  I was a serious tomboy growing up and have the battle scars to prove it.  Also between 8th and 11th grades I managed to sprain an ankle, a wrist, chip a tooth, hyper-extend my elbow, dislocate a toe, dislocate two fingers, nearly bite all the way through my tongue, and cracked my patella.
12. As much as I love shoes I go barefoot as much as possible.
13. I prefer to have a small close-knit group of friends.  I have known my closest friends since 3rd grade.  The few exceptions are some of my Sorors.
14. I played softball for years and had dreams of playing for Team USA.  Thanks to the crack in my patella that dream was shot down but I still love to follow the sport. 
15. I wish I could heal the world.
