Well, if I were to get a dollar for every time I have been asked how to pronounce my name since I've started blogging...I'd be able to get Cowgirl's bedroom finished no problem!! I know I have tried to type it out phonetically for people, but it just looks weird. I mean, I know it already DOES look weird anyway...but hey - my mom's fault. Not mine.
So many inquiries have not received a suitable reply. I decided that ya'll needed to just HEAR someone say it. So, I enlisted the aid of my favorite Monkey, and here you have it:
Just in case you didn't catch it: hoz-meen
This name has been the curse of my life. I am not even kidding. The nicknames the boys came up with to tease me...I had one that followed me all the way through High School! It was given to me by a group of boys when a substitute in Middle School (don't even get me STARTED on the hell that was getting a new teacher for the first time, or having a substitute) slaughtered my name during role call. Then followed me to High School. I then had boys who didn't even go to Middle School with us start calling me that! And the final proof is in my yearbook from SENIOR year when someone who didn't even know how I GOT that nick name wrote it in my yearbook when he signed it. It wasn't a mean nick name - just making fun of the way the teacher pronounced it, and it stuck. Love you mom - and I know you love my name and are so proud of it - but I'm just saying like it is...from my perspective!
Now that that item of business is out of the way, here's a few more:
