Intro to who I am...really

Well, I decided to finally jump on the blog bandwagon. Yeah, yeah...don't everyone clap at once. I'm not really sure who would even want to read my blog so I'm not really sure what direction this blog will take. I plan on sharing photographs and videos of my recent motorcycle trips - I got this REALLY KEWL camcorder on my bike that I turn on and tape bits and pieces (usually the really fun curvy roads) of my rides. I also plan on sharing my scrapbooking projects because it truly is an obsession of mine. (Hehe...good play on words since is the company that my mother and I started in 2004 and it is still going strong today. ) I also think this would be a great way to share some photos with distant relatives who keep begging me to send them some pictures and sadly, I never do.

So, I guess since I figured out what I'll post I should actually post something about who I am to get this whole shin dig started. Ok, let's see... my name is Chantele Jacobs. I was born in Germany while my daddy was in the Army. I'm a full blooded American that lives in Middle Tennessee where it doesn't get too cold in the winter and it doesn't get too hot in the summer. Who am I kidding? It gets friggn' hot here. 107F is definitly considered hot! But at least it doesn't stay THAT hot for long though. I do prefer the heat to the cold. I could never live up north where they get tons of snow and it gets real cold.

I have a wonderful husband, Tom. He is my best friend, the love of my life, the father of my children, and the most amazing man you will ever meet. Even after 15 years of marriage he still makes my heart go pitter patter when he kisses me. Now calm down, he's not completely perfect. I do, after all, have days when I just want to bop him upside the head with a frying pan...but not today. LOL!

I am the mother of teenage boys. Oh my goodness. My youngest just turned 13 on Monday so now I can officially say that they are all teenagers. Tanner is 13, Codey is 17, and Brian is 19. God, now after typing that I feel old!

I have two 8 yr old dogs, both were rescued from the local dog pound. Sugar, is a mixed breed of a Shiatsu and a Cocker Spaniel. She is the only other female in the house so she is my baby girl. She even has a pink rhinestone collar. She isn't too sweet though. In fact, everyone that comes to my house is terrified of her because she doesn't like strangers in the house and she is not afraid to let them know it! Rosco Peco is a beagle and the bestest dog in the whole wide world! LOL! Don't get me wrong, I love my Sugar beyond description but EVERYBODY loves Rosco! He is just so darned cute and always wants to play ball - no matter how many times you throw the darn thing he is always bringing it back for more!!!! But, like my husband, he is not perfect either.... he will eat anything and EVERYTHING in sight that even resembles food. This one time he got into a can of used cooking grease that I had sitting next to the trash can for my hubby to take out with him when he took the trash out. Oh, it was nasty. Rosco ate the entire thing and it was all in one of those large Maxwell House metal coffee cans and it was full to the rim! Eww, my stomach just turns thinking about it. He got so sick he would just lay there and literally moan. It was awful. Poor Rosco.

Ok, I've covered my husband, my kids, my dogs...what else should I mention? Oh, I have a motorcycle! How on earth did I forget that?! My hubby has a really pretty baby blue & black Harley Davidson Softtail Custom motorcycle (that I picked out) and I have a maroon Honda Shadow. Yeah, his is bigger and cost more but I'm REALLY short so my choices were kind of limited as to which bikes I could actually sit on and my feet touch the ground. You know, that kind of comes in handy when you come to a stop. Somethings got to keep it from tipping over. LOL! I love my bike. I just learned how to ride in April of 2007. Since that time I have ridden over 20,000 miles! I LOVE riding my motorcycle. Every free moment I have I am spending it out riding but I'm sure that will be evident when I start sharing our riding habits.

Well, I guess that's all I'm typing now. I need to get off my butt and go work out on my Wii. I'm trying to get back that girlish figure of mine. I am trying to get back in shape. Oh, who am I kidding? Round IS a shape too. LOL!

Later taters!
