They call me Girl, they call me Stacy, they call me Her, They call me Jane...


Big ups to The Ting Ting's for those lovely lyrics as my title :) It's a good song to run to, add it to your workout playlist.

It's story time boys and girls!

Gather round! Indian style, y'all!

My parents had no idea they would name me Lacey until after they had me. My Mom said I just looked like a Lacey. I whole heartedly agree. I can't imagine having any other name! Speaking of, my name was ALMOST Lacy instead of Lacey. When my parents filled out the papers to be sent to the big dogs, my Mom spelled it "Lacy"... well, after she handed it over, she decided she preferred "Lacey". What was done was done & I was to forever be Lacy. Well, one fine day, my birth certificate arrived in the mail. My Mom opened her up and scanned it & Heavenofheaven's, there it was...
L A C E Y
You may be like, "Big deal, same name!" Well, I love that E. I love that it almost wasn't there and that the Birth Certificate Gods shined upon my Mom & screwed things up! I just don't feel like a Lacey without the E.

But apparently, the first 6 months of my life... I was totally okay with it.
