10 Things You Don't Know About Me

  1. I am adopted - I have lived in the same family my whole life and grew up with my adoptive Mom being my big sister!
  2. I have a little sister, Rebecca, who is one year younger than my oldest daughter and one year older than my youngest daughter.
  3. My adoptive parents are my best friends.  They are only 11 years older than me so we have a lot in common.  My husband and I love to do things with them.
  4. I graduated high school from Dalat International School in Penang, Malaysia.
  5. I LOVE sweets!  Mainly cookies and ice cream...they scream my name if they are in the house.
  6. I love watching action movies, no romantic comedies for this lady.
  7. I love reading mystery novels...Chelsea Cain (Gretchen Howell series), Patricia Cornwell (Scarpetta series), etc.
  8. I have ready every Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum) and Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse) novel
  9. I hate exercise and diets!  Even though I need to loose 60 lbs!  Still waiting on a magic pill!
  10. I love electronic gadgets!  I have a Chumby, GoogleTV, Apple TV, Sonos, iPad, Kindle, Color Nook...need I go on?!


  1. I learned some new things about you Vicky! I didn't know you graduated high school in Malaysia and I didn't know you had a Chumby, nor do I know what that is! I love your blog and Etsy shop. You make me excited about everything that involves knitting

  2. Thanks Jamie! Yep, I graduated from a missionary boarding school even though I was not a missionary child, nor did I board there. Just happened to be the only American school available. Had a great year there!

  3. I love when I tell my friends about you and the age difference between us. Their reactions are always the same..."Wait, so how old are your parents?" When I tell them how old mom and dad are, they get that confused/shocked face. "Wait, so they had your sister when they were like...11???" It's like their whole world has been turned upside down until I mention, "She was adopted...and so was I." Then everything is right with the world once again. It's a fun little game I like to play on people now. :o)
