About Me and My Dreams
I have always had big dreams.
I am the oldest of 2 sisters and 2 brothers. As a young child, I was going to work on the ground crew at Ranger Stadium. That dream evolved into being an athletic trainer for the Texas Rangers and marrying Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez. This dream was shattered when I was 12 years old when Pudge got married. Though I still had a desire to be an athletic trainer, I did not have the desire to go to school for it.
My dreams quickly altered the night I met my husband.
I lost all sight of any career and only desired to be this man’s beloved wife. Luckily this time things turned out in my favor. Through my 17 years of marriage, my dreams have changed about as often as I change my underwear. I would have to say that I am a bit fickle. One minute I am decorating my house with bold colors such as red, yellow and turquoise, the next minute I want to paint everything white!!! One minute I want to purchase a tiny house, the next I want to move to Waco, TX and buy a fixer upper!!! Thanks, Chip and Johanna, this one is on you!!!
Oh Decisions, Decisions!!!
Sometimes I want to be a stay at home mom and other times I am figuring out ways to run my own business. I do have my own small floral business where we mainly do weddings and other events that I love some days and hate others. For many years I stood my ground about having absolutely no desire to EVER return to school and here I am now, a sophomore in college getting my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Graphic Design. Due to my extravagant dreams, I also work full time to help cover the cost of all of my remodeling projects, business endeavors and all the things that make me feel fancy.
My big dreams don’t stop with me either; I also have big dreams for my kids and husband!!! I ask my husband at least once a month is he is sure that he is not being called into the ministry or the mission field because sometimes I feel like he might be!!! My son is surely going to play major league baseball and my daughter is going to dance on Broadway…oh the places my dreams take us!!!
Here I am today…
My current dreams consist of getting my degree, getting out of debt (that’s a whole blog post in itself), doing a complete remodel to my house (hence the ALL WHITE), simplifying my life, starting a bible journaling group with my tween girls from church, continuing to grow my floral business, getting my life more organized, and figuring out how to relieve some of my stress!!!…oh and becoming famous in the blog world of course!!!! Ultimately…There is NOTHING set in stone in my mind except for the probability of having newer bigger and better dreams. So grab a cup of coffee and join me as I share!
