Thursday's Thirteen #1

This is my 1st time posting for Thursday's Thirteen. The idea is that each person posts 13 things about themselves on Thursday as a way for people to get to know each other. To visit more blogs who participate, go to

Here's my first list:

1. My name is Melissa.

2. I am 31 years old.

3. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Todd, for 5 yrs.

4. I have 2 girls, Emma (3) and Ella (11 months).

5. I am a follower of Jesus Christ.

6. I am an avid scrapbooker, and have been scrapbooking for 2.5 yrs.

7. I have been to 9 foreign countries.

8. I work part-time at a scrapbook store.

9. I am messy by nature. (As opposed to a neat-freak.)

10. I like to do laundry.

11. I hate to do dishes.

12. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother.

13. This is a lot harder than I thought it would be!!!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

I love your girls names! Beautiful!! And I think you possibly have my dream job of working in a scrapbook store. I would spend my paycheck in the store each week!

Welcome to the TT world! It was great to "meet" you. I hope you will continue doing this!

Great list! Welcome to the world of TT.....I love lists where you get to learn something about the people who are writing them.

Ahhhh Scrapbooking! I love it, but am so far behind. I need to take three weeks and lock myself in a room with all my pics and lots of supplies and scrapbook non stop.

My TT is up!

Ghost said...

Welcome! It's a great first list and I'm jealous you work in a scrapbook shop.

Have a Happy!

Elizabeth said...

I have an Emma too - and working in a scrapbook store would be WAY too dangerous for me LOL

Melissa said...

Hi everyone! Yes, working in a scrapbook store is VERY dangerous! Not only are all the products very tempting, but I constantly have ideas floating around in my head for which to use those tempting products! It does help that I need my paycheck for everyday expenses though. Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to TT! I have a bunch of scrapbooking stuff. For some reason everyone bought me scrapbooking materials one christmas. I have no clue what to do with it.

Ooops - I was still thinking of the last blog I visited when I typed in my comment (the Blogaversary mention). *blush* Sorry about that.

Anyhow, welcome again. :)

Which foreign countries have you been to? That's almost a whole thirteen list right there! One of these days I should try to get over to the scrapbook store you work at - it's not too far from where I work. Welcome to TT!
