Introducing Tonya

Introducing Tonya

Where do you live?
Purlear, NC 
(just about 15 mins south of the Blue Ridge Parkway out of Boone)

Do you have any hidden talents? 
I can touch my nose with my tongue.
(though, i'm not certain that's a talent)

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at.
talking & sewing

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at.
loosing weight & exercising

Do you have any siblings? What are they like?
I have an older brother that is 13 months older than me.  He works for our state DOT (dept. of transportation) 
I've always felt like he never "liked" me.  I'm still not certain he does. I've always wished we had a much better relationship.  I know I can count on him, so I guess that's all that matters.

Have you ever won a trophy? 
no, just a few awards through blogs, isn't that sad?

Name one thing that not many people know about you.
I love, love rap music. (please don't hold that against me)

What is your earliest memory?
I was 4 and my brother was 5, it was his first day of kindergarten.  I was watching out the window of him getting on the bus.  The bus drove away with him and I just sat in the floor and cried.  I can remember the baby sitter asking me what was wrong and I said "I'm going to miss him".

What was your favorite musical group when you were in Junior High?
AC/DC (not anymore though)

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? 
a teacher

Who is the person you respect the most, and why?
Jesus and then my husband.  My husband really is one of a kind.  He IS one of the good guys.  I'm so thankful for him.

What outdoor activities do you like to do?
ekkkk.....swim in our pool.

If your house was on fire and you could grab only 3 things before leaving, what would they be?
my laptop, sewing machines (yes, all 3 of them) and E (my son)

Which is your most favorite place on this earth?
right now, HOME
