Steering Team Intros: meet Abbey!

Our Steering Team is simply fabulous this year, & I'm so excited to introduce them to you! First up, we have....

Abbey & the Ruggedly Handsome Jon Gropp

ABBEY

I'm the Anderson MOPS Coordinator this year!

I've been on Anderson MOPS Steering Team for an undisclosed number of years... 
I'm addicted & couldn't stop even if I wanted to.

I have four kiddos - Zeke (age 10), Eliza (age 7), Emelia (age 5) & Jed (age 3)

Last book I read was "The Giver"... which counts as a grown-up book, right? 
Most of my favorite reads of late have come from the young adult genre because clearly I'm in some kind of denial about my true age.
If I had 2 hours of unexpected free time, I would nap
Or eat nachos & watch episodes of Chuck on Netflix. 
Or maybe, if I'm feeling exceptionally motivated, I would go for a run
And then eat nachos & watch Netflix.
My fav restaurant is Papa's & Beer. I'll have diet coke (always better at Mexican restaurants) & flautitas with shredded beef. BAM.
The last song I sang was #4 on Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" CD... not sure of the name. It was a very LOUD duet with Zeke in the van. And neither of us really knew the words. I'm sure it was a real treat for the other passengers.
Recently, I learned how to make homemade chicken nuggets using sour cream & crushed Ritz crackers. 

And that although it's fantastically liberating to be closing in on 40 & no longer have to deal with personal insecurities that I struggled with when I was younger, it's very hard to shake mothering insecurities in this phase of life.

I'd really like to become fluent in another language. And be able to do a cartwheel.
My fav dessert is Chickfila's chocolate chunk cookies.
Yes, I take those random Facebook quizzes... I've learned that my vocation should be an astronaut, my character on Downton Abbey is the Dowager Countess, I attract "artsy" people, 
& my nickname should be "Toots." 

My favorite thing about MOPS? Camaraderie with other moms!
