About me: Ilena

TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Age: 37 Residence: USA Married? With children? Happily married with 2 daughters Occupation: Housewife, Doula and Artist Education: School of LIFE Pets: 180 lb. English Mastiff, Samson Religious affiliation / observance: Jewish/Reform Last person / party I voted for: Don't vote...They all suck Next person / party I will vote for: Nobody...They all suck My history (100 words max): Grew up as a nice Jewish girl in New York. Moved to California at 19 until 25. Upon moving back to NY, met my wonderful Israeli husband on a blind date... We always joke, because it was a first blind date for both of us in our lives and ended up running away together to Israel for 5 weeks after 2 weeks of meeting. We got married 6 months later when I was 5 months pregnant with our first child over 10 years ago.... Of course our friends lost the bets on how long we would stay together! Family history (100 words max): Born & raised in New York. Mom's family came to Ellis Island from Russia and Dad's from Morocco. I am adopted. My bio-family is (maternal) English, Irish, Scottish, Hungarian and (paternal) is Puerto Rican and Cuban. So I am an amazing mix of the "true melting pot"! My connection with Israel: My husband. We have been going every summer for the last 10 years. We are looking forward to making Aliya. We are already in the process :)... hopefully it will happen this summer. Just don't know how I will be able to put a 4,000 sq. ft. home into a 1,000 sq. ft. home What I would take with me to a deserted island: My family, computer, comfy clothing (can't live without my sweatsuits), and a lifetime supply of toiletries If I could have dinner with any person in the world it would be: My biological family.... I am aware that I am the first born of 10 on my paternal side. I would love to meet them all at once... It would make a great show on Oprah! Which feminine/masculine trait would I like to have: Not to be so emotional! And to let things slide off my shoulders What angers you: American media, especially CNN. They warp the truth. They will NEVER show or tell the public what is REALLY going on in the world What makes you happy: LOVE. To love and to be loved. and of course a little cash doesn't hurt! Last book I read was: My father's book "Red Devil". He is a best selling author! Comfort food: Mac n cheese....ANYTHING starchy!!! My life five years from now: Thin Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest) 8 Click here to leave a message for Ilena TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Meet all 'About Me' participants
