A Bit About Me, October Edition

Leading up to my birthday on February 23, I’ve been posting a couple of random things about me on the 23rd of each month. So for the month of October, how’s this for randomness

5) I’ve never been to Disneyworld. When I was growing up, we vacationed somewhere every year, but my dad was never one to voluntarily stand in line for things, especially in the hot Florida sun. It never seemed like a big deal when I was a little girl, but now, as an adult, I can hardly wait to take the girls there. And while there are lots of other experiences I will enjoy showing them the ropes, I think it will be pretty neat for us to be able to experience Disney together.

6) Before the girls were born, I spent my career in consumer packaged goods marketing. In short, I developed the product, packaging, pricing and promotional strategies, and distribution plans for the product lines I managed. My first job out of college was with Bryan Foods, a regional Sara Lee brand. I managed the illustrious bacon category, before being promoted to cocktail sausages and smoked link sausages. (I’ll pause while you laugh!) Following my foray into smoked meats, I worked for No nonsense pantyhose; and then I took at job with Fruit of the Loom in men’s underwear. (Cue more snickers, I know!) I absolutely loved what I did, and – although I wouldn’t take anything for this time with the girls – I look forward to getting back into the marketing groove in a few years. For now, I just over-analyze every trip to the grocery store…and I am quite particular about my meat, socks, and undies.

(For more randomness, check out the posts from August and September!)

Loved reading this - I think you need to write more if you're going to limit it to once a month.

How about 10 facts??? :)

Have a good weekend - I'm going to do the budget now (fun fun fun)

I've been to Disney Land a few times when I was little, but never Disney World. Someday down the road when unexpected money shows up in my account we shall plan a trip. :) Like the idea of posting about yourself once a month. I may have to borrow it. I'll choose a different day if I do though. :) Sounds like you really enjoy your job field, how wonderful!

i'm particular about my socks, meats and undies too!! : )

thanks for stopping by my blog, i'm working on being better at commenting on others' blogs -- i always read but comment more depending on time.

the girls only took a few photos and made a big deal about what they photgraphed (the bear HOLDING the carrot or the bear EATING the carrot), so it was easy to remember : )

have a SUPER sunday!

I'm really looking forward to a Disney trip with my two. I've been to Disneyworld (once when I was in 8th grade), and think I'll really enjoy sharing that magic with my guys. I've heard kids get in free on their birthday...
