I met Bernie and Roy about 4 years ago when I was their personal trainer. They are wonderful people with amazing personalities! Roy is best described as the equivalent to a male “Chatty Kathy”, the guy loves to strike up a good conversation. He is funny and so very nice. I can see why Bernie agreed to marry him just a little over a year ago, Halloween of 2010 (they had a fun Halloween themed wedding where everyone wore costumes). Bernadette….. how do you even describe this woman?! She is first off soooo lovely and incredibly nice. She would do anything for you. She is quirky, fun, witty and so very hilarious. She is just Bernie… and I love her as I know so many others do. We have kept in touch here and there over the years. After not talking to them in awhile, it is just like picking up right where we left off. Bernie got a hold of me to do head shots for her. She has a blog (www.onemixedbag.com), and she is going to be featured on SITS (www.thesitsgirls.com) in early February (if you want a good laugh, check out her blog). Bernie’s started her blog a little over a year ago. She describes it as “A little of this and a little of that. Just a place that I can ramble about whatever floats my boat. Mr. Bernie is quite a helper bee in keeping me supplied in blog posts”. And she states that her mission for blogging is “To make people laugh and keep them entertained. Perhaps even spit something out their nose”. See what I am talking about, that is Bernie in a nut shell! She is a woman of many talents, she also makes these fun, witty cards. Check out her etsy store : Budugalee Cards (www.etsy.com/shop/Budugalee). Oh and lastly, you might wonder why Bernie is holding a chicken purse in some of these pictures. Well, Bernadette collects purses, not just any purses, but fabulous, creative, over the top (way over!) purses. I have seen her collection and it is quite impressive. This is what she has to say about them, “I collect and display purses. Not just any purses. They have to be weird or strange. I’m always looking to give an ugly purse a home. When people buy a purse for me they base it on if they would carry it. If they wouldn’t then they know I will love it”. And it just happens to be her birthday today, Happy Birthday Bernie!!!!
