Tell me about your family (married, kids, pets)
Jack and I have been married 39 years come September, and we have a wonderful daughter who is grown, single, and living several hours away with, unfortunately, no one but a grandcat and granddog at the moment. (sigh). But we do have a quirky, loveable rescued cocker spaniel named Tandi who makes us laugh on a daily basis.

Where did you grow up and where do live now?
I was born and raised in Alabama, spent 20 years in New Mexico, and now am settled near Asheville, NC. DD would like us to move closer to her, but that can't happen anytime soon.
Halloween blog: Walks by Night
Tell us a little about your weight changes and why you joined the WWI group.
Recently I reached my highest weight ever. I was so uncomfortable, I could hardly tie my shoes. The seatbelt was too tight, so I was considering not wearing it. I have no nice clothes that fit and I didn't want to buy the next size up, so I don't go to church or anywhere really nice any more. Something clicked in my head, I guess. I've had enough. So I've gone back to the one diet that worked for me--the South Beach diet. I lost 40 lbs on it before stalling and giving up, and subsequently gaining all that back and more. This time, I know my weaknesses, I have a plan, and being kept accountable by all of you should help me stay on track.
Tell us your favorite, daily blog reads.
I read mostly quilting and Halloween blogs, with a few others tossed in the mix. It's been nice to "meet" other folks with the same interests, even though we're scattered across the globe.
Tell us anything else you would like to share (do you work, did/do you have a career?) Etc...
I've been a nurse only 3 weeks longer than I've been a married woman. I've worked a lot of different jobs in a lot of different places, and am currently working on a telemetry unit in a small hospital. Gardening is one of my new interests, and I'm slowly turning my brown thumb into a yellow one. I also am nuts about hot air balloons and was able to fulfill a long-time dream and go up in one a couple of years ago. It was fantastic!
Hope everyone enjoyed getting to know Stephanie D. She is a nurse like me and a quilter and we seem to have a lot in common. Have a great week!
