Day One.... List 20 Random things about yourself.

Here I go! Twenty Things... Random and all. 

  1. I was named Maria, after the lead role in The Sound Of Music... but my MomMom always thought I was named after her, but it was just good luck that her name was Maria, because my Mom decided her daughter will be named Maria years before meeting my Dad... LOL
  2. I am a redhead, and I love being a redhead but I was teased alot for the color of my hair when I was a child... so I was not a huge fan of my hair color back then.
  3. I took piano lessons for years but I can't hardly play chopsticks...
  4. I spoke fluent German for years to speak to my MomMom but after she died I stopped speaking it and now I can't hardly remember any words. 
  5. I had a lapband installed in March of 2010... I have lost over 120 pounds thanx to my band...
  6. I am currently preparing for Gastric Bypass surgery, which will help me get the rest of the way to Goal....
  7. I met my husband George, who is the love of my life, in a mall shopping at Christmastime, over 20 years ago.... He is the sun, moon, and stars of my universe.
  8. I went to middle school and high school with TV's Tina Fey, and we were in Summer Stage together... I am very Dramatic! A Drama Queen some may say...
  9. I love to cruise... and we have been on 6 cruises but I would love to do more! 
  10. I had been to both Alaska and Hawaii.... and I have seen all of the West Coast, a little at a time.

  12. My highest weight was 475 pounds.... and I cried for an hour when I saw that on the scale.
  13. I am a big Movie Buff, and my George and I go to Advanced Screenings of movies several nights a week... It is a lifestyle, you could say. 
  14. I worked for Walt Disney World for 5 years, and my husband has worked for them for the last 9 years.... He is seasonal now and we drive down(1000 miles) 2 or 3 times a year for him to put in his hours... and I play at the parks while he works, visit and hang out with friends, and go to my lapband support group that I really miss since moving back home. It is fun! I should tell you he's a server who works for tips in a restaurant in the Magic Kingdom or you'll think we waste more money on gas than he could make...LOL
  15. I am Team Edward! but I think I am fascinated with all Vampire characters... my favorites are Eric Northman and Jessica Hamby....
