who is moose?

I don't think most women want to be called a moose; in fact, I can bet most women would be downright offended! Well, I am a 24 year old woman who is called "moose" numerous times every day... and I cherish each occasion, because it comes from my future hubby in a loving way. All couples have pet names for one another.... hunny, sweetie, darlin', etc., etc.. The story of how it started, Mr. calling me moose, is way too complicated and silly to even begin telling (just like all pet name beginnings), but it is a perfect reflection of ME... complicated and silly!

Born and Raised… in V.I.R.G.I.N.I.A

Hey Ya’ll! Want to know a little more about me?

Here it goes… 

My name is Ashley.  

date nights   July 2009 021
I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia

I live with my parents (until my wedding in October)
    Weddings 013
    *Mom and Dad let me move back home after college for free

      I’ll have my masters in Speech-Language Pathology in May.
      I have a wonderfully patient fiancé who is my rock and my reason,
        particularly when it comes to my not-so-common-sense way of
        getting things done...
        lets just say I typically "leap before I look"!

        I love God with all my heart; I know I'm not perfect, but I try to live my life by a few simple words because of all that God has done for me:
          “Love your neighbor as yourself”
          “A person’s a person, no matter how small”

          (the second one’s not from God…duh… but from Dr. Seuss, and still applicable)

          me, in a nutshell:
          (not walnut shell, though,  i'm allergic to those)

          the absolute opposite of "easy going" 
          lover of  shells and cheese  

          detests crushed velvet, anything paisley print, and rice krispies treats
          i wear my heart on my sleeve.... and my thoughts on my face 
          i struggle with forgiving others 
            i think i'm loyal... maybe to a fault, and that might be the death of me one day
          give me a good book, a cup of earl, and a squooshy window seat and i'm in heaven
                 keeper of a messy room
