Who Am I?

Since so many new people have joined in on the fun here lately I figured it was time to tell you a little bit about who I am outside of blogging.

   I'm Ashley, as you know. I am in my second year of pre-nursing and about to be a certified dialysis tech. Yes, I play with blood for a living. I have always know I would end up in the medical world. I originally planned to be an OB/GYN but I really like SOME free time so I changed my mind. I am now working on becoming a Labor and Delivery nurse.

    On my way to the medical field I have done a little bit of everything. I got my first job at a Library back in High School. That is where I met my husband. After that I was a nanny and worked at a well known children's store. I actually still work at the children's store because I love the people I work with so much. I can't leave them no matter how hard I try.

    I got married this past March and so I am busy becoming a wife. I am a crockpot addict and my husband loves seeing what I can make. He says I am the best cook ever, I think he just wants to get out of doing the dishes.

    I live in Oregon. I do not really like it here and someday soon we plan to move. We have not decided between Texas and Georgia yet.

   I love to read (duh!) and my favorites are YA. I like adult books but sometimes I feel belittled by them. Adult authors tend to dumb things down or take 2 pages to describe a tree. I like my books to move at a good pace because I have so many other books to read. I have been reviewing for almost 5 years. I started out reviewing for a company and branched out on my own. I took a large time period off to reestablish my love for reading and basically had to start from the ground up again. I love it though, so it was no big deal. My biggest blogging pet peeve is the people that start for free books and feel entitled. 5 years later I still feel thankful for every book I get.

   If you have any questions or comments for me please contact me! I love to interact with authors and other readers.

Where would you live if you moved to Texas? Texas is my heart <3 It's a great place to call home.

Vashelle, We would live in Auston or Round Rock. I am so in love with that area. I visit every year for a few weeks.

I lived in Texas, when my dad was in the army. We lived near Coppers Cove.

I do miss it but it was so hot LOL

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Following back :)

Thanks for becoming a follower of my site. I'm now following you back via GFC. My sister's been a nurse for twenty years so I'm sure you'll find plenty of excitement like she has.

stargirl, I live about 40 mins from Round Rock/Austin area. As a matter of fact, I live in Killeen/Ft. Hood, right next to where BHLmistress used to live! Small world :)
After we spend a few years in Hawaii, we actually want to make our permanent home Round Rock or Georgetown.

Vashelle, We could end up there at the same time :). We need to spend another couple years hear to esablish ourselves in our careers before we go. How cool!
