About Me

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.

  2. So you must be from Portland at some point, huh? A TrailBlazers fan AND I read a post with a Powell’s mention…I’m an Oregonian (and current Portlander), too!

    You are very talented. I’m glad I came across your blog.

  3. I was looking for info to hang curtains and came across your blog, I laughed until I cried. You are a great tonic for the frustrated curtain hanger.Thanks for your story.

  4. Well, I’m still in Nebraska.
    I love your blog.

  5. I came accross your blog via “tag surfer.” I love your etsy stuff. I’m been making apliques on onsies too and matching them up with crochet stuff. I really like that turtle one you’ve got.

    Interesting to read your “religious testimony.” It’s nice to hear your honesty. We are pinching our pennies as well and I’m always so amazed at God provision every day. I hope that God finds a special place in your heart as He has in mine.

  6. thank you

  7. I came across your blog while googling “what shoes to wear with burmuda shorts”. Hahaha! I don’t normally read blogs, and if/when I do on the odd occasion it is not ever a stranger’s blog. But, when I saw that you had reviewed some fiction, I was hooked!! Then I moved on to the “What I’m wearing”, and I am looking for Anthropologie skirts now. Need I say more?

  8. Hiya! I found your blog on a google images search for “cute small filing cabinets.” This might be a weird–or inane–question, but where did you get that orange filing cabinet you were pairing with the red desk back in 2009? 😀

  9. hello my greting for you

  10. Miss your What I’m wearing posts (I’ve wound up purchasing a couple of dresses you recommended) and your book reviews. Hope all is well with you.

  11. As I was scrolling for cute outfit ideas I came across your picture in a few outfits and had to do a double take because you are my twin. I love your style! Not sure how to follow u but had to leave a comment

  12. you have exactly the same body type as me. I would adore more fashion tips with store names. You blog is really wonderful!

  13. My father painted the painting you would save in a fire 😉 I love your post ❤
