About Me

I always get stuck in what to say in these "About Me" sections.  I don't want to divulge so much that you just want to slap me but I don't want to leave anything out for fear that my readers don't feel they can get to know me.  So, here's what I've got for you.

My name is Alicia.  I was born, and raised, in Utah.  I have a very large family.  I'm the oldest of 5 children, all the younger ones are boys.  I'm also the oldest of 27 grandchildren, on my mothers side alone.  Yea, we're freakin' huge.

I lived in California for 2 years after I met my husband and I decided that I'd drag him back to Utah with me so that I could be closer to my family.  The bonus is that he didn't much care for California so he was happy to get out.

I was raised in a very religious household.  My mothers parents were converts to the LDS Church and, every Sunday that I can remember, we went to Church.  Yes, I am Mormon.  No, I haven't been to Church in a long time.  Why?  Well, that would fall into the "divulging too much" category.  I will say, however, I have a very strong belief in the Church.  With all my heart, I know it's true.  Too much?

My political views are most closely related to THIS!

I'm a lover of animals, especially dogs, and have two 4 legged babies.  Cherry, an 8 yr old Pit Bull and Tank, a 6 yr old blind, diabetic, Min Pin.  They're absolutely amazing and I love them to pieces.  One day I plan to own more four legged creatures but for right now, those two fill up my time.

I'm married and have been for nearly 3 years now.  My husband, TJ, is the love of my life.  I met him in 2003 in a Yahoo! chat room. If you weren't able to add that up, we were together 6 yrs before we got married.  We both have commitment issues.  OK, not really, but we had a lot of expectations for our wedding but finally realized they didn't matter.  Us getting married is what mattered.  I couldn't imagine my life without him.  When he was 7 yrs old he was hit by a car and it took off his left leg, at the ankle.  Through a series of events his leg is now amputated above the knee.  Thankfully, that doesn't stop him from doing anything he wants to do.

So, in a very large nutshell, this is me.  This is my life.  Welcome to it.
