Getting to Know You: Melisa Cross
Name – Melisa Cross
State – Oklahoma
Family – Husband Lloyd (Butch) Cross, 4 boys….Oh yes, I am highly outnumbered! My oldest is Matthias, the twins, Tristan and Brenden, and my youngest Jeremiah
Interests or hobbies – Our family loves Renaissance Festivals and we attend OKRF in Muskogee, OK every May. We are also Halloween fanatics and go all out decorating our yard every year, to the point of people asking how much it costs to enter the haunted house. I also cross stitch and do other crafty things. I love photography. to read and have more books than bookshelf space. I also like to do puzzles.
Talents – I sing and was offered a recording contract when I was about 12. I can’t thank my mother enough for saying no.
Occupation – For most of the year, I am a stay at home mom, however, during June through the first part of July you will find me at the Castle of Muskogee, working fireworks.
My dream vacation would be … To go on a European “Monster Tour”, touring the different places and countries of significance to the horror genre, such as Romania, Notre Dame in France, etc. My husband and I have already been talking about this as a possibility for our 25th anniversary.
My super power is … I would have to say organization and being able to see things in a different light than most people. Sometimes what just seems like common sense to me is an angle someone else didn’t think of.
Something you can do better than your spouse/significant other …Play double solitaire. I beat him almost every game.
My greatest achievement has been … Without a doubt my four boys. They truly are the light of my life and bring me so much pride and joy. They are true gentlemen, creative, so musically talented and a blessing to be around. Along with that, my husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary this summer. In this day and age, seeing how often couples divorce, that is a huge achievement.
Something that no one knows about me is … I hate talking to people on the phone when inquiring about things, it makes me sick to my stomach. Even if it is just ordering a pizza.
My favorite food is … this is too hard to answer, because I’m a foodie and love all types of food.
The 3 things I would want if I was stranded on a desert island are …my family, music on an iPod with a never ending battery, and my books.
My secret crush is … I have to list 2. Benedict Cumberbatch from Sherlock and David Tennant, best known as the 10th Doctor from Doctor Who.
