I'm a 28 year old female living in the Poconos, PA. I work for JCPenny Salon since July and absolutely love it. I also just recently started working for Vector Marketing and will be selling Cutco knives for some extra money. If you would like a presentation, please message me. (Do not feel pressured to have to buy something, I get paid just for informing you about our product, whether you purchase or not. It would be so much help and would greatly appreciate it).I married the love of my life of 5 years on August 6, 2013. One of the best days of my life. We have a beautiful 3 year old little girl named Bayleigh Marie who is the light of our lives. We just found out that we are expecting another lil bundle of joy April 28/29, 2014, so praying for Blue, but obviously happy no matter what, as long as our baby is healthy.

June 29, 2010 our beautiful baby girl was born. Her name is Bayleigh Marie and she was born at 8:49am weighing in at 8lbs 9 oz and 21" long. I was a scheduled c-section and honestly would do it all the same again if I had a choice. Being a mommy is the most amazing feeling in the world and I wouldn't change it for the life of me.

Little craziness to tell now... My Gram passed away April 29,2010 from stage 4 lung cancer that spread to her bones. I took it very hard and came to realize after talking with my sister something a little crazy... My baby was born exactly 2 months to the date of my gram's death... That makes her astrological sign what? That's right CANCER... How freaking creepy is that? Now to top it all off, as you might have noticed.... Our baby we are expecting, is now due the day my Gram passed; April 29, 2014... I know that my Gram was watching over me and the delivery and helped Bayleigh be a strong and healthy baby. I love you Gram and there isnt a day that goes by that I don't think of you and miss you and wish you were here to meet your great grand daughter. But I know you're looking over us and we will see you one day. R.I.P.
