I'm not the only one who uses a bloggy pseudonym. I could link to most of the bloggers that are in my Reader, but that would take too long and you'd get bored OR you'd click away and read about their Much More Exciting And Interesting Lives and you'd never get back to me and that would break my bloggy heart and you'd also never finish reading this terribly insufferably long run-on sentence.
I've written as the Auburn Gal Always since the beginning of my blog. It seemed like a way to be unique, while instantly communicating my affection for my alma mater and DISTANCING myself from that other school in our state (blech!) I'm still perfectly happy being the Auburn Gal Always - because it still describes me very well.
But it is not nearly a complete description of me. Unfortunately, there's just not a neat and succinct name for everything I do and everything I am.
Christ Follower, Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Lover, Friend, Blogger, Wannabe Photographer, Amateur Graphic Designer, Chef, Chauffer, Auburn Fan, Softball Mom, Soccer Mom, Insecure, USA Network Original Series Addict
See, there are just not enough words that starts with a vowel there. Just try pronouncing it.
So, today, I'm bloggy outing myself.
(Not that way.)
I suppose I should add Straight to the list above.
I will continue to use blogonyms for my husband and children. I don't want to take away their privacy without their permission. But for reasons that are income-related, I am now proud to introduce myself...
My real name is Keri. I am 37 (yikes) and am married to my college sweetheart, The Mighty Hunter. Next month, we will celebrate 16 years of
stressfilled blissful happy marriage. No, it hasn't always been rainbows and unicorns and puffy hearts, but it has been always been good, in general. He is a wonderful, big, gruff teddy-bear of a guy. We have two children. Our daughter, Stinkerbell, turned 7 in January 2008. Our son, Lucky, was born 5 days after Stinkerbell's birthday in January 2007 (that makes him 18 months right now.) We live in NE Alabama (specifically, Fort Payne) - a small piece of heaven that God dropped down here for a few of us to enjoy before we join him. We are all AVID fans of our beloved Auburn University and obsessively watch their football games and love to drive down to a game each season.
So, there. You can start googling "Keri" in Fort Payne, Al, and see what you get.
But you can still call me the Auburn Gal Always - cause it totally fits.
