MeMe - It's my turn - thanks for sharing the fun Cyndee!

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Northwest

It has been so fun for me to read all about everyone else! Thanks Cyndee for tagging me - I gladly accept your challenge!

•1.       I skipped my junior year of high school. I also spent each of the three years in a different school. I did my freshman year in Portsmouth RI, sophomore year in Oceanside CA , and senior year in Chesapeake VA. (My dad was in the Navy - still is!) Overall, I attended 8 schools from kindergarten to high school.

•2.       I met my husband at a New Year's Eve party and we were married less than a year later in Las Vegas. The night before we got married we were in the casino. On a whim we played what was to be our wedding date (17) and it hit! I think we won $400 not to mention taking it as a definite sign that we were meant to be! 6 years and 2 beautiful daughters later he can still melt me with his smile!

•3.       My grandfather, Charles DeBow, was one of the first five Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first Black pilots to ever serve in the military.

•4.    The craziest thing I ever did was move from CA to WA with a newborn and 2 year old while recovering from a c-section. Let's just say my husband unloaded the moving truck all by himself....

•5.       I am dedicated to supporting women in business. I started a local networking/marketing group, Mom to Mom, for "mompreneurs".

Thanks for reading. I now tag Julie Ferenzi Katie Wojtkowski Cynthia Sloop

Sorry if any of you have already been meme'd :)

Hi, Yvonne!  Great Meme!  Wow, your Grandfather was a Tuskegee Airman???  !!!  And you sure have moved a lot!  I can't imagine a move right after a C-section, hard enough to move with little ones but c'mon!  (I'm so glad he unloaded the truck!)  I'm off to check out your Mom's networking group!  Thanks for sharing and passing it on!

Thanks for sharing Yvonne. It's so nice to see this new round of memes.  You're crazy even getting out to a grocery store after a c section, let alone moving!

Yvonne - I love reading these Memes and it's great to get to know a whole new group of people on this latest round.  Your grandfather is part of our history - many thanks to him for his service to this country.
