Featured Blog: Illusion

Hi, I'm Ixy and I'm a blogoholic. I started writing Illusion; in December 2010 and I get more addicted every day, thanks to the great FTLOB community. My blog roll just keeps growing and growing!

But hey, I'm a Scorpio and we're not exactly known for moderation. One time while reviewing my bank statement, I realized I'd spent $85 in one month at Baskin Robbins (ice cream parlour). My fitness trainer once told me I was addicted to sugar "like some people are to crack". Good thing I'm just as obsessed with exercise!

I married my high school sweetheart, Jeremy, after 10 years of dating and I'm so lucky to have found him early in life. I love clowning around and I knew he was The One when he laughed and got silly with me, instead of rolling his eyes at my antics.

Last year we had a little girl, Sasha, who's the best thing ever. I'm constantly surprised by how much I love her, because I'm not the maternal type. I once said I thought kittens were cuter than babies, so in the hospital after my c-section, my mom asked if Sasha was better than a kitten. Obviously...

When not scarfing down ice cream and dancing around my living room with Jeremy and Sasha, I'm analyzing financial statements in my job as a chartered accountant at an insurance company. I love reading and writing, and blogging is an outlet for the creative side of me that I gave up when I switched my major from English to Business.

I'm also a famous klutz and there's an "epic falls" post making its way to the front of my draft posts line-up. It's still winter here in Canada, so I'm just waiting to see if I end up with any new material, since I haven't fallen down yet this winter and that's a record. Some fool suggested the solution to this was to give up my heels, and that walking into work isn't a fashion show. In the wise words of my sister, "Oh, honey. Everything is a fashion show!"

Well, that's enough babbling for now. Please stop by - I'd love to hear from you!

Oh Ixy, I don't know you yet, but I plan on us being friends! Oh yes I do. Not just because Cancerians and Scorpios are both emotional basket-cases, but also because you used the word "fool" to describe your co-worker in your write-up. Awesome!
