Default Hello from California

Good Morning,

I am new here and looking forward to participating. The July Recipe Cards hooked me and then I signed up to scrap a page for another member.

My name is Kathy and I am married with 4 sons. My boys are 21, 20, 16 and 14. They are the light of my life. The eldest is a Junior at the University of Southern California and my second born is a sophomore at the local community college. My third son is a senior in high school and my younges is starting high school. They all play water polo and my youngest plays football, wrestles and plays baseball.

I love life and live it as such. I love to sew, cook, digital scrapbook, bead, read, bike ride, and rollerblade. My husband is a personal trainer. Two years ago he decided he needed to get healthy and went from 221 pounds to 148. He has since worked on muscle mass and I must say is looking GOOD! Our whole family lives a healthy lifestyle now. I garden, make most of our food from scratch and juice.

I work for the state of California. I prepare the budgets for hte State Lands Commission, the Energy Commission and the Public Utilities Commission. A tough job but I love the challenge.

Well, enough about me. Looking forward to jumping in!

Kathy

Hi Kathy!

Welcome! I have a housefull of boys too... well, three of them are mostly out LOL (mine are 5 - 22, tomorrow). My oldest just graduated from UOP in Stockton, CA.

I'm in awe of your husband. What an amazing thing to do. I need to go check out your recipe cards. We've been eating much healthier, but I desperately need some new recipes. Butter & cheese are still to much of a friend.

I can't wait to see more of you here. Welcome!

I'm feeling like it's an incredibly small world right this second... Today, I took my daughter for a tour of the University of Southern California, as she is a senior in high school this year and making that incredibly important decision of where to go to college! AND, my brother in law works at UOP! He's some kind of manager in the IT department, I don't really know much about what he does, but we were just up in Sacramento visiting a couple weeks back!!

Wahoo! And Welcome!!

Huggles!!
~Sarah~

From the Piggy Re: Hello from California

That is too funny! I bet my son & your husband have passed each other on campus. He was a finance major, but it's not a huge school. It is a small world, isn't it?
