If It's Groovy is uber excited to have added a new member to our team and it is time to introduce this lovely lady! Meet Doreen!
Allow myself to introduce….myself… :0)
My name is Doreen… I have no nicknames, well none that I can share… my hubby has one for me that is cute but might offend - LOL!
I have been married to the love of my life, David, since July 2001, so that makes us married…over 9 years.
I have 2 kids: Joseph (15yrs) and Madison, or Madi as we like to call her, (9yrs in January).
We have 3 fur-babies: a mutt named Spotty, a boxer named Daisy, and a poodle named Ivanna.
We have had Spotty for a number of years but Daisy and Ivanna came to us last year when my Grandpa died and we took them in. Ivanna is my buddy and when I am home we are literally inseparable!
We also have 3 goldfish: Marbles, Bubbles, and Orangey --- but don't ask me to tell you which is which – LOL!
I work full-time as a Payroll Supervisor for the County of Riverside . I have worked for the County, in various positions for over 13 years.
In my spare time, which is rare, I love to scrap, read, watch my favorite shows: "Grey's Anatomy", "Private Practice", " Cougar Town " and "Supernatural" and take naps (I really need my sleep!).
I was born in Spain but came to the US when I was around 5 years old. Since being here I have lived in Southern, CA. Spanish was my first language, but since I did move here at a young age, I do not know any Spanish.
I love all kinds of music, I'm not really picky, but I prefer dance music.
I have been scrapping since Joseph was a wee-one, but have really taken it more seriously w/in the last 3 or so years. I enjoy it, a-lot! Almost to the point where it's an obsession! :0) I need to watch it before my friends and family decide to hold an in intervention!
I am very excited to join the Groovy Chicks and look forward to the inspiration I know I will be receiving from them. I just hope I will be able to inspire as well.
Well, as you can see I love to `talk' but I must stop before I turn this intro into a novel!
Thanks for having me and I am looking forward to seeing where this new chapter in my life takes me.
Hugs and kisses xoxoxo
