OKAY. . .so that was the long, boring, official bio. . . but just who is Miss Tamra REALLY?

This is a picture of me when I was in preschool. Since then I have lived in lots of places and lots of houses and hope to never move again. I like to travel, swim, play scrabble, roller-blade, eat really good chocolate ice-cream, and watch movies. My most favorite thing, though, is laughing and being silly with my three boys and our little princess. As you can guess, I've learned a LOT about dinosaurs, trains, and jungle animals!

When I was little I wanted to have 13 kids and 13 jobs (Including. . . a teacher, an astronaut, a scientist, a singer and more. Why thirteen? I don't know--lucky, I guess!) and live in California. Many years later, I find myself extremely happy as a preschool teacher living in Texas with my husband and our four kids.

Have a "get to know you" question for me? Post it in the comments and I'll answer (well. . . most questions. . . )
