INTRODUCTIONS

In an effort to save everyone from the frustration of having their friends' pages filled up with introductions, let's do them a different way.

Post your introduction in this thread. Please do not start new posts just to introduce yourself.

Do not reply to other people's intros here. Threads with many layers of replies become difficult to read very quickly on LJ. Sorry for having to have this kind of rule, but I think it will make the community experience better for everyone.

New posts containing introductions will be deleted from now on.

E-mail the mods are wconlivejournal@gmail.com  if you have questions. Thank you for your cooperation!

mylifeinred AKA BridalLace
Hi, I'm Heather, AKA BridalLace on LJT, CC, and WC. the username doesn't really apply anymore since i got married in '02, 5.5 years ago now (yegads), but since it was convenient so i've continued to sign up with it. i live in Indiana, am an IU alum, married my Romanian DH who is a Purdue alum. He is currently working in CA.

I am expecting my 2nd child, a boy, in early April. My first DD was born in May 05.

can we make another general thread for people posting new community groups that are transfers from CC? like all the new mommies groups that are being created, etc. i might create one for the April 08 group once i get homesick enough to want to know what is going on with the other expecting mothers. :)

thanks,

Heather

Hey! I forgot you're a fellow Hoosier! I'm Mrs_Pell from CC and an IU alum as well. I'm in Texas now, but will always be a Hoosier! :)

Hello all, MESinChicago here...
Hello everyone, I am so glad to see so many of you here from CC!

I am Melissa, 32 married to Paul 38. We live in Chicago and have 2 adorable furbabies Oreo & Crouton. I have started journaling here as well and have a longer intro in my journal. Please feel free to stop by!

Me, too.
Hey all,
I was Brenda on both CC and WC - hence the outdated username. :-) I am in my nid-thirties (that stings), have a hubbie and a 15 month old baby girl. I work from home, part-time, writing marketing stuff for a global communications and business consulting company. Feel free to drop over to my journal and let me know if you want to chat. I am really bad about updating my journal regularly, but I am a loyal and active commenter on other people's journals.

I did an intro post a few days ago, but here's a link to my intro post on my journal: http://robynscott.livejournal.com/867.html

Looking forward to making new friends!

Here we go again... KRM&TPS on CC
I knew about all the stuff going on. Go away for a day and CC is not up. As I said I am KRM&TPS on CC. I started out on WC (same name I think?) in 2003 somedaying it and then planning my wedding. DH and I got married January 2005. He is a farmer and I am working at our church since my grant funded job lost the funding. :( I doubt many people know me. I started an LJ after the WC thing but only posted once. I still need to figure it all out. I have a few friends I keep up with(barely.. trying to better this year)on here. Would love to meet new friends.

I really miss some of the threads on CC. We are going to TTC in May or so and I really needed some WW motivation and recipes. Anyway as I said would love to meet some new people feel free to add my to your friends list if I know you or dont know.

I posted this earlier but am going to post again for this thread. My CC and WC names were suzfuzsunflower. My real name is Susannah, I am married to Matt, and have a beautiful baby boy, Benjamin. I planned my August 03 wedding on WC, then moved over to CC when everyone else did. On CC I was a long time member of SAI, and then a member of May 2007 mommies. I look forward to connecting with those that I knew on CC and meeting new friends!

Aw, man, I wanted a thread all about MEEEEE!

Well, I'm Kat = Hello Kitty. DH and I just moved back to Chicago from the xurbs to an official Chicago Bungalow last updated in 1950, and we're obsessed with all things restoration, although it's becoming an expensive hobby! I keep track of our home adventures on our house blog at www.ouroldhouse.vox.com

I'm an internal accountant for a major consulting company, and I love my job to death. We're CFBC at the moment, which frees up time for my hobbies including: home finance (sadly, yes), cake decorating, cycling, sewing, and dog training. I only read trashy chick-lit, have nightmares about failing calculus, and can be found listening to techno, folk music, and even a little dropkick murphys.

Hi, I'm Gerry. On both WC and CC I was/am Tandis (which unfortunately was already taken here, hence the "1").

DH and I are high school sweethearts who married in 2003 after 10 years of dating. In March we became the proud parents of twin girls, who turn 10 months old on Saturday. We also have two dogs and a cat.

I am a librarian, and when I have spare time (ha!) I read - currently it's a lot of urban fantasy, vampires, etc., and romance novels. The last novel I read was "White Heat" by Cherry Adair and "Bloodfever" by Karen Moning. Currently, I'm trying to get into "The man with the golden torc" by Simon R. Green.

Hey Girls,

Started out on WC as Erin55, then Jambray on CC. I was married in 2001, but due to a LOT of shit that went down, 6 years later I'm currently separated from my husband. I moved to OR from CA in September and am just trying to get my life back on track.

Although all of this CC business sucks, it's good to see so many of you over here.

Hi all - I am Becca - dzmattie on WC and on CC - and here at LJ.

Have one DH, one DS, and one DD - DS is almost 4 and DD is 15months.

I am a SAHM - love taking pictures of my kids, starting a new scrapbooking hobby, and am dealing with alot of health issues (endmetriosis, migraines, ulcerative colitis, and RA) - I post in my journal here occasionally and always read along. If you think we could get along here or we communicated on CC in the past - let me know - I would love to make a few new friends on LJ!

Hi everyone! I'm Gina-ginastorm, I've been married since 2003.

I miss the celebrity gossip, fashion & beauty, and tv talk from CC. I'm hoping that wc_on_lj will continue to give me the necessary information on celebrities & fashion!

Hi, I am Janey. I've been married to B since 9/24/05, and mom to K since 2/27/07. I am a SAHM, and B is an Architect. We live in an old house in Seattle which we are remodeling. The remodel is mostly complete now, though we plan to start work on the basement soon.

Glad to see so many familiar faces here. :)

This mess is unbelievable. Here's hoping the fun continues over here.

I'm Rachel/FallingforPhil on CC. I'm not a big poster, but I've been around since the WC days in late 2001.

I live in the Chicago burbs where I teach HS band. DH is a multimedia designer. My LJ is used to bitch about my insane schedule, reflect on my completely dysfunctional family, and keep track of the remodeling projects in our boring 70's-style home.

I love the Chicago Cubs, gardening, cooking, wine, opera, classical music, and home improvement. And, now that this is starting to sound like a personal ad, I'll be done. :)

I am glad to see that we all are getting together and starting something new. I was starting to miss not going to a forum everyday.

I am K-L-U on CC. I was starting to become more involved than just my journal when it got shut down.

I am glad to see more familiar names on here.

Hello!
I figured I would jump in and introduce myself. I wasn't a very active member of CC but my name was doozer on there. I was fairly active on WC although I'm not positive what my screen name was there - I think it was annalew??

Anyway, I'm always up for new friends so I figured I'd introduce myself. I started out on WC when I got engaged. I got married on 9/6/03. I'm 29, my DH is 29, no kids, one chubby and adorable cat. We live in PA. I like reading, scrapbooking and I should be more into decorating my house but I'm pretty indecisive so I'm having a hard time doing a lot of that. My LJ is really random and just about general things going on in my life.

I'm Jessica, Jess71903 on CC- Can't remember my WC name, but I was there planning my July '03 wedding. I jumped ship when everybody else did. I am married to Tony-awesome man-nurse of a husband, and mom to 4 month old Gage. We live in Arkansas. I was a member of SAI as it took us a year and a 1/2 to conceive G, and Sept 07 mommies (although he got here in Aug). Gage was born with spina bifida, but it definitely doesn't define him. He's a happy, healthy baby boy. I am a SAHM now, but I am an occupational therapist by trade and I can't stop being one just because I don't do it for money anymore.

Hi, I am loochnar here and looch over on CC. I journal/blog on a website of my own, and posted mostly in fashion and cooking threads. I plan to do a 50 book challenge and have joined over on CC, will see how that develops.

TTYL!

I"m here too....KristyK on CC
Just trying to get over all the CC/WC crap. Not sure whats going to happen, whether I stay here, start a blog there, start to journal at LJT, or just stay offline and do some other things for awhile, I don't really know yet.

I'm an old married lady. Much older than most of the ladies on CC, 46 last year! Married to Tom for almost 6 1/2 years, been together over 10. One child, Kristopher who's 17 1/2, and one of my best friends. He's such a delight, even when he drives me crazy! :D

Hi - I am also an older member from cc (I previously lurked on wc but never posted). Also 46 - got married for the first time (and last) in 2006. I live with my husband, three cats and French bulldog in the Philadelphia suburbs. I am not much of a journaler but like to keep up with the various people I "met" on cc.

hi! i'm angelgirl8, same name on WC and CC. i live in new york city with my husband and almost 2 year old boy/girl twins (in 5 days!), whom we had through IVF. i post about the babies, life in the city and other random things (you know, tv and sports). we're moving to the suburbs soon so there's that, too.

i've mostly been reading along on CC, since i rarely have time to post there. i always love to find new friends!

I'm Jenn and I've actually had a few user names online until I finally settled on just being as me as I could be. Back in 1999 when I checked out these message boards, I was SavaryGal, babyblu, or JennPete (I think that was my UW's original name)... I was even "promoted" to CL on UW until I was booted and started my own thing, which some of you now know about (and I, for one, am happy that you have at least checked it out). I really, honestly, no foolin', do not care about other web communities and who belongs where or says or does what online (as long as it's legal of course).

Um, I think I should stop here... I tend to chat - a lot.

Hi, I'm Nancy. I was Catch on CC and I was NancyRob-something on WC (was a someday for a while). I'm 26 and married Rob in July 2006. We live in NYC with our two dogs, Spence the Yorkie and Suze the Cocker Spaniel. We are child free by choice for now. I'm still in school, working on my BA.

In CC, I mostly posted in the Weight Loss Challenges and I think in the Fashion forum. I was also a Gossip/Cooking forum lurker. I always welcome new friends - especially other New Yorkers and Yankee fans ;)

Can I make a suggestion with this post? That it have a future date so it is always at the top? Is that even possible to change now? I just think otherwise it will be buried.

(I do love this thread, much better than single posts!)

hi, i made it here. i am asha on cc, formerly rebjc on wc and cc. i think i might actually hold the "title" of most prolific poster on cc, and, no, my posts were not only one liners. hence, one of the reasons i am sad about the what's gone down as a lot of posts and journal entries that i put a fair amount of thought into are now gone. also, i made some good friends and enjoyed communicating with many other ladies, and i feel like that is gone now.

recently, i have been mia as i just had a beautiful baby girl four months ago, and we were insane enough to move half way across the country at the same time. so far, i am loving my new home and new locale.

in addition, to my baby i also have a very driven husband and a kitty i found outside my home about a year ago (by the way, the several of you gals helped me take care of her when i first found her!).

right now, i am a sahm, who was formerly a teacher in the inner city. i have been dabbling in writing children's books, and plan to take that more seriously once things get more settled.

Good luck with the children's books! I always wanted to do that, too. :)
