Hi, my name is Megan. {Part 1}

I decided to do a little memoir about myself, to give you an idea of who I am.

I was born March 23, 1981. I ALWAYS meet people who share my birthday, it was a popular day to give birth I guess :)

I am the oldest of 4, I guess my Mom was bored in the 80's so she just kept having kids. I tried to tell her she could have stopped with perfection, but life sure is different as an only child {just ask my husband!}

I have 2 brothers who were born in 82 and 83 and a sister who was born in 88. 
Being so close in age lead to a lot of sibling rivalry, which is why I chose not to have my own kids so close in age. 

My teenage years were not fun, for me or my parents. I was headstrong and a little too independent for my own good. 
Please God, let me not be paid back for that through my own children!

After high school I did not want to go to college, I think the main reason was that I really didn't have a burning desire to work in a certain field, so indecisiveness lead to not doing it at all.

I was a party girl and I was having fun, then I meet a douche bag. 
I dated this jerk for a year or two and it was pretty much the worst idea ever.
I was young, I thought it was love. He was abusive, mentally and physically. 
I THANK GOD everyday that I got out of that relationship and for once in my life listened to my Mom when she told me that girls who pick these kind of guys usually keep picking them.

A few months later I was bartending at a pool hall in Dallas and this guy asks me out and of course I said no, I had a rule about dating anyone I met at the bar. He wore me down, mostly because he really seemed like a really nice guy and we started dating. 
He took me to see Bedazzled {worst movie ever!} on our first date, so it was a good thing he was a good kisser :)

I was 20.

We started dating in 2001.
We had a lot of ups and downs, not so much with each other as with me and my, let's call it, 'craziness'. 

He stuck by me no matter what, he really is one amazing guy {shhh don't tell him though, he already has a giant ego}

In 2004 I got a job with a beauty retailer and I LOVED it!

I was there for several years, working my way up the management ladder.
I also took classes at community college, but it got to be too much with work, so I once again stopped going to school.

We also bought a house in 2004.

In 2006 we decided to get married, there was no big proposal, things just kinda fell into place. I worked with a girl who got me an amazing deal on my amazing ring :)

After the amazing ring, Mom decided to give me an amazing wedding.  I was working a lot and really let her plan IT ALL.  I picked out my dress and stuff, but she did all the hard work, which was fine by me.
It was a FUN wedding, if you know me in real life you know I'm always a good time at any party :)

August 4, 2007.

Did I mention that my husband got laid off the week before the wedding? 
He works in the tech field and things were not good around this time, luckily he received a severance package.  He loved getting to stay home for a few weeks and play video games in between job hunting. 
We shall just call this his 'guy maternity leave'. 

One day I decided to have a baby and BAM I was pregnant the next month.

April 4, 2009 Miss Madison was born via C-section {I went into labor while shopping at a flea market!}

While I was pregnant I stopped working and after being bored at home for a few weeks, decided to go back to school.
This was not an easy decision for us, my husband really did NOT want to live on 1 paycheck. He is a saver, while I am not, BUT this was the best idea long term for our family.

To be continued....
