Ever since I first watched, and fell in love with, Julie/Julia, I wanted to a write a blog. Why not? I’m freakin’ hilarious. Well, at least I think so. Maybe I just have a lot to say…all the time.
I also think I have a lot up in my noodle, so why not share it with the internet world? Everything else is on the internet, and now my oh-so-clever thoughts will be, as well. Some happy, some sad. Some good, some bad. That’s life, right?! Maybe I can be a tad inspiring, or maybe you can just relate in some way.
For my new million readers, I will become your favorite blogger. Am I dreaming? My hunka hunka, aka my husband, says, “If you ain’t dreamin’, you only sleepin’.” Bad grammar, but makes perfect sense.
I am so overwhelmed from everyone’s response of my first blog ‘My Constant’. Thank you for all the kind words and support. I originally thought I would write a plethora of blogs, but no worries to my running friends, I’ll make sure to write lots of those running days of past, present, and hopefully future.
So a little about me….
I am married to the love of my life. No…it’s not a cliché, he’s the real deal. I gave my husband the name ‘hunka hunka’ many years ago. Every vacation I would take a shot of him in the pool. Duh…you can see for yourself how handsome he is in the picture below. I would always caption every pool picture as my hunka hunka burnin’ love. I just shortened his name to ‘hunka hunka’ over time. I had a childhood friend once introduce himself to my husband and say, “I don’t even know your real name. I only know you as ‘hunka hunka’.”
I’m a wife, a daughter, a mom, a pug mom to the best pug around, a grandmother, and Soke Dai (pronounced So’-kay Die) of ChunJiDo , the best martial arts organization in the world. Don’t worry, you’ll hear more about all of that in a future blog. I teach women’s self-defense, which is very near and dear to my heart. I crochet. (You can find some of my handy creations on Facebook: Gracie Mae Crochet. )
As I mentioned in my first blog, I have a love for running. That was my favorite pastime, hoping to resurrect it soon.
My sweet Gracie Mae – Princess Pug has her own Facebook page. She’s the prettiest of all the pugs. She deserves the spotlight.
I love Wonder Woman. Seriously…I’m her reincarnation. I park my invisible jet in our backyard. My neighbors don’t mind because they don’t know it’s there. Get it…it’s invisible. I crack myself up.
I can’t forget to mention that I love to cook…but only on weekends. Who has time for that Mrs. Cleaver stuff during the week? I love to share recipes because well, I love to eat.
I love to read. My favorite books are thrillers…anticipation of a murder mystery or suspense of a stalker. I have a tender heart for novels, as long as it is something to whom I can relate. You will see a book review from time to time if there was a book that caught my attention enough. My colleague and I have what I call our very own “book club” at work. It is nice to share our favorite reads and discuss our thoughts and perceptions.
I love UK basketball, and things get pretty serious during basketball season. I hate Duke..nuff said. Any true UK fan should strongly feel that way, too.
Football season is another sports’ love of mine. My hunka hunka and I discuss nearly every game with our own subjective views. We yell at the TV discussing right/wrong play calls. He once called me a ‘football buddy’. I’ll take that as a compliment.
My hunka hunka is retired and I’m insanely jealous of him. However, he did marry a much younger and super-hot woman. I am proud of the fact he gave 36 years of his life to one company. That’s unheard by today’s standards in the workforce.
After hearing all this, one can probably tell I have all the time in the world to write this blog. Wade Garrett once said, “I’ll get all the sleep I need when I’m dead.” Just call me Wade. If you don’t know who Wade Garrett is, shame shame.
Make sure to check out my next blog where I’ll be a little less boring.
Until next time…Peace out, trout!
Gracie Mae sends her love…
