Hi... My Name Is...

With a bunch of new readers recently, I thought I would re-introduce myself and leave some links to my favorite posts. I've been blogging for almost five years, about nothing and everything. I live and work in St. Louis with my husband Chris and two hyaenas, Haven and Olive Betty. 



My posts mainly consists of my daily battle of trying to eat healthy but really just wanting to eat a Chinese buffet out of business. I also post about my anxiety, how I love to clean my house like a sociopath, and things my husband does that are an irritation at the time, but always make good blog stories. In the last year I have taken up running, or what I refer to as "my fat girl bounce." I do it to hang out with my girlfriends and to get away from my kids. Other than that, I work full time, paying off student loans for a Political Science degree that I don't use.. and just trying to live the dream.

I like to spend money, drink beer, and go to bed early. I also have a really tacky tattoo. I think that sums it up.

Welcome, say hello, and promise to come back.

  12. Hi! I just started following you so this was great timing, haha. I love this post and look forward to reading these fave posts. I briefly took a look at your 30 Day Shred results - wow! Awesome results. I am currently doing the Shred again (although like you, I don't do it every single day) and currently have not been able to walk for 2 days. Seriously. It hurts so bad. My muscles are protesting against this torture...

    I also really liked your wedding post. So many people do big expensive, over the top TLC-worthy glamathons - gross! I'm also about keeping it simple and, mostly, CHEAP. Haha.

    Anyway - I promise to come back! :)

  18. Your sense of humor is fantastic and I really don't know how you manage to make light of your anxiety. I laugh every time I read your blog. In a way you have helped me feel better. Laughter is good medicine but maybe not as good as anti anxiety drugs though. Esther Norine Designs
