52 Lists

I saw this on another blog who got it from Meet Me at Mike's.  It's just creating a list every week.  So here is mine.

My dad worked for Exxon Mobil growing up so the first 6 places were all locations I moved to with my family.  I was born in Texas and I spent most of my childhood years in Houston so I say that I grew up in Texas, but I've lived in Virginia more years now than anywhere else.  New York was only for a few months but I went to preschool there and that is where my grandmother lived.  It holds a special place in my heart.  My mother and sister and I lived there while we were looking for a house in Hoptacong.  I went to James Madison University in Harrisonburg, and loved it.  Harrisonburg is a very unique fun college town with lots of outdoor things to do that I did not take enough advantage of.  We lived in Washington DC when we were first married and I loved it.  I would move back there but we can't afford a house with a yard.  We lived in Fairfax when we found out we were expecting the girls and then brought them home from the hospital to our first home in Burke.  I love our house now, we live in a great neighborhood with lots of parks and we have amazing neighbors.  It is a fantastic kid friendly area.  Plus I work 5 minutes from home!
