Better late than never!

So, I guess I forgot that I should introduce myself on here: so I will take this blog space and do it now!
My past:
My full name is Ashley Nicole King-Painter.
I am 21 years young and live in Bowling Green, KY.
I was born an old child to my mother and father. (I do have half sisters and step sisters).
I was born at the old hospital in little Scottsville, and brought home to Bowling Green.
When I was 9 years old my parents divorced, and I lived between mom's and my grandpa's.
When I was 14, I met the LOVE of my life. We met in middle school (Moss Middle school!)
I was in the 8th grade and had just gotten out of my first "serious" boyfriend relationship. I was with him for 9 months and he decided to break up with me right before my 14th birthday. I met Aaron when it was closer to the end of the school year- we started flirting around March/April. He would tease me about eating ranch dressing on my fries, but would always bring me an extra cup (ha ha!) He "dated" my friend because he said he thought "I was too good for him". After he found out that I really liked him, he sat next to me at lunch everyday, walked me to my classes, held my books for me! He asked me out during our big 8th grade dance, while we were sitting in the cafeteria, he brought me a Dr. Pepper and asked me if I wanted to be his girlfriend. Of course I said yes (otherwise, I wouldn't be blogging here!!) Anyways, we shared a fun summer together being kids, having fun. I then had to go back to Greenwood for high school which was not fun. It was very hard going to a different school that your boyfriend/girlfriend especially in high school. My mom remarried and bought a house in Scottsville the end of my Freshmen year, so I was then uprooted to Allen County. When I moved there, I hated it. I came home crying like the first month of school. I met my first great friend, Rebecca Cook in Journalism class! She and I hit it off instantly, and became close friends fast! We share so many memories in just a short few years. From sneaking RC's from the old teacher's lounge, to running around the hallways "reporting" we were like inseparable. Then, she graduated and I had two years left of high school. All the time, Aaron and I stayed together, seeing each other after school and weekends. By the time I was a senior, Aaron and I both had jobs and he gradually started staying at my parents house, little by little- by the time he graduated he had more stuff at my house than I did and he lived with us. We graduated in 2007, a week apart. We were originally going to get married on our 5 year anniversary (May 9, 2007)- but my parents said I needed to be out of high school first. We then went right to college in the fall, both deciding it wasn't for us at the time. We both continued to work though. Finally, in November of 2008 Aaron and I tied the knot in Scottsville, on the 15th in a small church. It was a perfect wedding! Nothing changed after we were married- it was just nice to be able to rock his last name, and have a beautiful ring (that he picked out BTW!) In May of 2009, we welcome our first Pug let Lily to our family. She is like our child until we have one of our own. We also just welcomed a new puppy Jaina just a week ago. She's already adapted and spoiled. ;) I re-enrolled back into school in Sept of 2009 for school. I chose Paralegal studies, and I am almost done!! =D

My here and right now:
I am finally in a place in my life, that I love. I am okay with my life! I know in the past I have done some things I regret, I was a bad friend to my best est of friends, and I didn't like the person I was. I have let all of that go, and there is nowhere else to go but UP! Sometimes, I get stressed but I know I have some of the BEST friends a girl can have!!

My future plans:
I want to finish school, find a decent job, and most importantly START MY FAMILY!! It's no lie I have baby fever- I am loosing weight, and become more active so I can be healthy for a child. I hear motherhood calling my name very very soon! Also, I plan to build and make my marriage much stronger, not that it needs help... but any marriage takes work, hard work, and devotion. I look forward, SO forward to building the rest of my life with my best friend. He's my everything, my safe haven, my rock, my provider.
