(Edited) Hey y'all. When I first created this blog my husband and I were living in North Carolina. I'm from Louisiana and was missing my family and my home terribly. That's where the name "The Homesick Cajun" came from.
After finding out that I had a Grand baby on the way my husband and I packed up and moved back to Louisiana. And since I'm no longer "homesick" I decided to change the name to "The Down Home Cajun."
I'm a goof ball, blond to a fault...crazy and serious all balled up into one. Self professed girly-girl but not high maintenance. Simple not complicated, tough on the outside but a hot mess on the inside. Most girls are the "champagne and roses" type. I'm more of a "beer and beef jerky" kind of girl.
Sometimes I cuss like a sailor. I laugh at the most inappropriate times. Most of the time I'm socially awkward.
I'm extremely loyal and protective! A total sweetheart until you cross me or disrespect me. Save the drama for the llama. I'm a no nonsense, no bull shit kinda gal.
Paintshop Pro junkie, addicted to cross word puzzles, love a good book from time to time but not those cheap paperback romances!! Beer drinker, tequila shooter, though I love a good chocolate martini!!
I haven't watched an episode of Extreme Home Makeover without ballin' my eyes out, I like a good movie but usually too impatient to sit through an entire one!! Love music, rap and rock and lots in between!! Snoop and Dr Dre are my fav's! I like to shoot pool, though I'm not very good at it.
I believe that you have to give to receive. I also believe that karma can be a bitch, if you are!! What goes around will most certainly come around!
I have fibromyalgia, but I don't let it control my life. I struggle at times, and I get weak, you have to learn to deal with the things that life hands you. If you see someone who is handicap or disabled try to put yourself in their shoes, it can bring you a whole new understanding and appreciation for other people.
We were meant for each other.
Family and friends are all that matter in this world, in the end it's all you have. I've been blessed with a great family, and a few great friends who love and support me no matter what!! That is a true gift in my book!
Before I go any further, introducing you to the cast of characters might be a good idea.
He's an amazing father. I don't think I've ever seen a man more devoted to his daughters than him. I love that about him. There's nothing he wouldn't do for them.
He's supportive of me 110 percent. He's understanding, loving, smart, driven and funny. There has only been one thing I've been able to find that I "dislike" about him...Road Rage! Lol...the man has it worse than anyone I think I've ever seen. But hell, he could have worse flaws that that!
This kid has more goals at 20 than I had when I was his age. His current goal is to buy a house or some property to build a house on. It amazes me, that at his age these are the priorities he has set for himself.
He's brutally honest, but it's one of the things I love most about him. He's my everything. Honestly, without him, I'm nothing. His laugh is contagious. I swear, it's one of my favorite sounds in the world!
He only weighed 3 pounds (he was 3 months premature!) at birth and even though he's 6'4" and eats like a horse, he's still a skinny kid lol.
Some day he'll meet a girl that I'll totally hate and settle down and get married. Is it wrong that the thought of that makes me sad? Lol...
Edit: My Son did meet a girl. I didn't hate her, but I didn't like her much at all lol. We did not start off on the right foot. But, he loves her so I chose to let go of my resentments and I've learned to love her too. They bought a house and on my Son's 23rd birthday they blessed me with the most amazing gift...my Grand daughter! I'll try to keep the amount of pictures I place here to a minimum...but it's hard lol.
My hubby also has two daughters who are 27 and 25. Out of respect of their privacy I'm not going to post any pictures of them or say too much about them. They're great kids though. His oldest daughter is preppy and cute and (smart as whip) she has an infectious laugh. His youngest daughter is a free spirit, she loves music, she has gorgeous blue eyes and she wants to write a book some day. I have no doubt that she will. I love how much they love their Dad and how they always turn to him when they need something. Doesn't matter what it is, from needing their stuffed animal (that they've had since birth, and still sleep with) "repaired", to car troubles and even when they just need to vent. Every girl should have the relationship that these two do with their Fathers.
I've made more mistakes than a person should be allowed in one lifetime, but I'm proud to say that I've learned from each and every one of them. Those mistakes are what makes me who I am. And after almost a lifetime, I love me! That feels great! Feel free to look around, grab my button, and follow my blog if you like what you've read already! Come on! Pull up a chair and stick around for a while!
