About Me

Cooking for the dinner party prior to my high school winter formal, Senior yr., 2006

I’m new to the blogging world, only following blogs since, oh, the beginning of this year, but I have become enamored with the whole prospect. I love reading blogs and finding incredible recipes, reading step-by-step instructions on home projects (complete with pictures!!), being inspired by gorgeous rooms or positive life outooks, and following people who do these things WHILE being hilarious or eloquent or sassy or just plain wonderful writers.

My inspiration for my very first blog is our first house. My husband and I try very hard to be DIY-ers, strictly for the sake of saving moolah, so I figured this would be a great way to chronicle all the home reno projects, both successes and failures. Additionally, I have been obsessed with cooking and baking since I was a little girl, and I am always on the quest to find another new and interesting recipe. The more decadent or unique, the better (but that doesn’t mean I’ll be cooking with truffle oil and 5 different kinds of rare mushrooms… I just mean over-the-top delicious and not so “plain-Jane”). If I can make it from scratch, I will. Boxed cake mix has only 3 fewer steps than baking a cake from scratch, and homemade has FAR fewer unnatural ingredients. Plus, there’s just something to be said for homemade anything.

If you know me, you know that I am a health-nut (my Bachelor’s is in Nutritional Sciences), with an insatiable appetite for sweets. Oxymoron? No, but I like the balance of eating healthy and being active during the day, and binging on a huge, gooey brownie while watching The Bachelor at night. Moderation at it’s finest.

If you also know me, I LOVE bright colors and prints, of which you will see a lot as I make my continued improvements on our new little house. My personality (most days) is bright and bubbly, so I am inherently drawn to big and bright decor. My poor hubby has to look at a lot of bold, graphic ,floral prints, but I think he secretly likes it. At least the walls aren’t pink, right?

Lastly, if you know me, you’ll know that I have a passion for writing. I am not at all concise (hence the long-winded “about me” section), but I give lots of great examples. I am a grammar snob. Blame it on my 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Kelly (we had to have different highlighters for each part of speech in our DOL and orderly, tabbed, 4-inch binders for just her class.. I’ll find it and show you someday), as well as my 10th grade Adv. English teacher, Mr. Smith. He put me in the writing lab, so I got to edit kids’ papers during my study hall. We, in the writing lab, would go so far as to edit the high school’s newspaper on our downtime (like I said, grammar snobs). I plan to be significantly less formal in this blog, but you can guarantee I will have my commas in their correct places. And I will always use my “too, to, and two” correctly, as well as my “your and you’re,” and my “their, they’re, and there.”  Like my dad says, anyone can see what one puts online, and that “anyone” could include Mrs. Kelly or Mr. Smith <3
