"About Me" sections always seem daunting. What should I say? Did I write enough? Did I write too much? Ugh. So, I've decided to break it down like a 5th grade book report... and throw in some pictures, because, well, why not?
I'm Audreya. This is my husband David. We're not actually Dutch. We just really like wooden stick-your-face-here scenes. It's just one of the many random things you can learn about me. I also hate goats. I love cheese. I'm on the fence about goat cheese.
Anyhoo. I'm 32 and have been married 7 years. I met my husband through a bizarre series of events. I love Jesus, sports, TV, reading, movies, sarcasm, taking pictures (not "photography", as that would imply that I know what I'm doing), gadgets, decorating and, did I mention TV? I work as a corporate trainer but I try to not blog about the specifics too much. That's how people get fired.
We don't have any human children but will probably begin the adoption process soon. (Although the definition of "soon" varies dramatically.) We do, however, have the coolest fur child ever. His name is Bruiser and he just turned 6. He does not like baths. (UPDATED: We now have the other coolest fur child ever, Maize - David's K9 partner. So don't bring drugs in our house because she'll know. And also because they are bad for you. And illegal. UPDATED AGAIN: David brought home another dog. Or at least we think it's a dog. He acts like a lunatic most of the time. His name is Luca. But you can call him Puppymonster.)
I also decorate cakes. Sometimes I post pictures of them. Sometimes I just sneak spoonfuls of icing when I think no one is looking.
My blog is as random as I am. I use it to discuss all the things I mentioned above and anything else that crosses my mind. It's the one area of my life where I don't impose many rules on myself or others. Just be awesome. That's all. I called it "If you ask me" because I found that I was starting a lot of sentences that way. Turns out, no one was asking me for my opinions... so now I just post them here. This is also a good place to mention two things. 1) I take requests. If you want to ask me something, feel free. Just be aware that I have problems with brevity. 2) I get images off of Google Image search all the time. I try to remember to link back to the source, like this, but I usually forget. If you ever come across an image you own and want me to remove, just ask. (PS: I used to start all my posts with "If you ask me..." but that got old. Just thought I'd clear that up so no one loses any sleep wonder why some things start that way and others don't.)
Whenever I want. Mondays, I sometimes post a movie review. Tuesdays during The Bachelor or Bachelorette, I post a ridiculous recap. Other than that, I just wait for the mood to strike me.
I'm originally from Northern Illinois where my elementary school classmate is now a mass murderer. Then they turned our A&W into a car lot. So I moved.
I now live in rural Arkansas where I do not know Bill Clinton. There's no A&W here but this is a slice of pie from a local restaurant. That's some impressive meringue. I moved to AR for college and then settled nearby. Then my sister did the same thing. Now my parents have followed suit. For a year or so, my accent had faded enough that I wasn't constantly being called a Yankee. It's back now.
Trust me, that's a can of worms you don't want to open. Let's just leave it at "Why not?"
...to get in touch with me if you just can't get enough... or if you just have to know why.
Or just ask me. Or leave me a comment. Comments are my favorite.
