I am the first pancake.
I am 34 years old, married, and a stay at home mom. I love to read. Some days, I love to cook. Other days I defrost frozen lasagna.
I have a younger brother, and a younger sister, Annie, who has Down Syndrome.
I’m a fan of dark chocolate, home grown tomatoes, lemon pledge, the BOB Revolution, Laura Ingalls Wilder, pajama pants, that new baby smell, recycling, old farmers, and catholic education.
I strongly dislike cauliflower, winter, the skinny jean, Bjork and her indie hipster icelandic wailing, short stories, french toast, and animated television.
I am a Democrat through and through, but I harbor a secret soft spot for Ronald Reagan.
I lost sixty pounds before I got pregnant with my son, Eli, aka Senor Pants.
Now I’m trying to lose 30 ish pounds of baby weight. It’s turning out to be a lot harder the third time around.
Although I no longer live in Nebraska, I still believe in making the best of what you’ve got.
And writing this blog keeps me sane.
