New Blogger - All About Me...


1. Full Name: Yvette Marie Forsythe

2. Age: 34

3. Married/Kids?: Married to Paul. We have 3 kids: Chance, 14 (he passed away in Feb. of this year), Derrick, 12, and Shaylyn 6

4. Work: Full-time stay-at-home mom (& stay-in-the car mom - don't we drive around alot??).

5. Resides: Highlands Ranch, Colorado (suburb of Denver)

6. Hobbies: Reading!! I love to read new fiction, classics, non-fiction (once in a while), magazines, anything on the Web, emails, and recipes (is that weird??).

7. Loves: My husband, kids and extended family, anything chocolate - cake, cookies, brownies, ice cream, candy...laying out in the sun (don't get to do that very often in CO!), a good haircut and color, scrapbooking, shopping, pedicures and massages, exercising, one-on-one time with each of my kids, watching Shaylyn (my 6-year-old) getting hooked on reading, sleeping in, hiking, Girls Night with my friends, laughing and making other people laugh, Grey's Anatomy, What Not To Wear (there was a marathon on TLC last Sunday...loved it!), Nordstrom's shoe department, my little dog Bella (she's a shih-tzu), a really clean house (especially the kitchen, oh yeah!) and of course, vacations!

8. I am on this blog thanks to: Marilee and Shannon

9. Dreams: Wow! So many dreams...so little time! I would like to own my own business, get rich and go on Oprah to inspire other women to become entrepreneurs. Okay, that sounds totally corney now that I just said that-maybe I'll just go for the "get rich" part of that dream... I would like to go on more family vacations (that does not involve sleeping in a tent!). I dream of having a finished basement - somewhere the kids and their friends can play and have a little privacy and I would have a big scrapbook room down there too! I dream of my dad and step-mom moving from California to Colorado. I am holding on tight to the dream that a cellulite cream will be invented that will actually work-please see #7 above-I love chocolate...

10. Addictions: Diet Coke, Grey's Anatomy, my DVR - it is great to have the FF and Rewind buttons and I love being able to watch good shows while I'm folding laundry and ironing during the day, chocolate (please see #7), Costa Vida (it's like Cafe Rio for those of you in Utah!), reading (I'm a huge nerd!)

11. Biggest Dislikes: Wild animals-like...coyotes, rattlesnakes, mountain lions, bobcats, bears... I have an irrational fear of those animals (ask Marilee-she's witnessed my paranoia on a hike!). Just another reason I do not like sleeping in tents - I feel like a target for wild animals! Oh, I'm also kind of afraid of chickens and other big birds that walk around. Do I need therapy?? I don't like standing in long lines (who does?), clutter, dirty dishes, adult acne. Thanks for reading my ramblings!

I can tell just by reading about you how much I like you already...reading recipes, clean house, fear of wild animals, dreams of cellulite cream - love that one! :-)
Welcome to the blog!

I am so glad that you are on our blog! It will be so fun to get to know you better! I hate camping, not because of the animals, I just hate the sleeping in a tent and dirtiness of it all! I am all for the cellulite cream, maybe that's how you will become rich!

Heather said...

I'm with you on the tent thing. Just ask Marilee and Julie. I called Julie before my husbands family reunion crying because we had to sleep in a tent! I much prefer a beautiful resort!

Marilee said...

Yeah! Welcome to the blog! you did a great job with your first post! So guess what I'm eating right now? No, not chocolate, a costa vida salad! Yummmm!! Yes I know we had them on Monday night, but I'm totally addicted! :-) Love ya girl!

Yvette said...

Mar - I had grapes and cheese after I worked out today and I'm STARVING! I was actually debating making a Costa Vida run before my kids get home from school. 300 calories burned on the elliptical = small sweet pork salad + Diet Coke! My kind of math!

Julie said...

I'm so glad to know you! I've heard lots about you from Mar! I also hate sleeping in tents and I too don't like chickens...they're kind of creepy. As for Costa Vida...YUM!!!!! I love their pork and I don't even like pork! When I move there (someday, sigh) we'll all have to go together. I know Lindsay doesn't love Mexican but she'll just have to deal! Right Twee?

I loved this post! I'm with Kacey - I already feel like I know and like you. :) This is a great way for us late starters (on the blog) to catch up on who everyone is.

:) Welcome!

Jocelyn said...

Yay! Another awesome girl on the blog! You are funny!! I'm with you on the Costa Vida that place is super yummy. I love how you added adult acne at the end. I have to say I hate that, too! I seriously thought getting zits ended by the time you're 20. Not true. Dang! Welcome to the blog!

shannon said...

woot woot! finally! thanks for joining us, we are so glad to have you. i hope someday to meet everyone. and yup, i am too with you on the tent thing...although we don't camp (i have a hatred for camping) so luckily i don't have to worry about my husband trying to convince me to camp. he hates it also!

I have a big spring bar canvas tent that I love to camp in at Yellowstone. However, camping with babies or toddlers is not fun to me! One night a big buffalo brushed up against a tent in our camp and let out a loud bellow waking everyone. Wild animals scare me too, oh and big turkeys! I totally loved your post, with the exception of camping, you're my kinda gal.
