Well, I guess this an “About Me” page, so I had better give you the skinny about myself. Beware, it’s not pretty…..

I’m a Colorado gal who did a brief stint in California in order to meet my hot hubby and have our 3 little girlies. We’ve been married for (almost) 12 years now and we’re so perfect for each other that we feel like we’ve known each other our whole lives. I know, totally sappy right?

Our 3 daughters are as different from each other as can possibly be and make us happy every day (sometimes simply because we’re laughing at them…). They are all so creative and love making things right along with their crazy mom. Their favorite thing about moving to Colorado is the fact that there are indoor pools here. That just blew their little minds the first time we went and it was snowing outside! Our youngest little firecracker hails from Russia and you can read about how she came to us here.

Some things about me:

I strongly remember what it’s like to be a kid and like to try to be the “fun” mom when I can.

Sometimes I eat popcorn for lunch. Like, right now….as I’m writing this.

I get migraines a lot and have fibromyalgia that I have been so lucky to get help for here in CO.

I love textures! I’m probably the reason there are “no touching” signs in a lot of stores I frequent.

I’m kinda awkward when it comes to conversation and forget to reach out and call/text my friends sometimes when I’m busy…..so, basically a lot (sorry guys)

I love my hubby like a dog loves bacon! Or, like anyone loves bacon…..cuz who doesn’t love bacon?

My brain is always racing with crafty& creative thoughts…..which isn’t always a good thing. Especially when I try to sleep.

I’m a sucker for a good quote.

My favorite shows right now are HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother) and Big Bang Theory. In fact, those are the ringtones on my cell (HIMYM is for hubby).

I love throwing parties….but…..

I get waaaaaaaay outta control when I throw parties.

I have a crazy awesome imagination. Or maybe just crazy…..

I’m Mormon and love it! (ask me why)

I LOVE & NEED to make lists…..for everything!

If I didn’t have a blog….about 90% of my projects wouldn’t reach completion. Sadly, that’s not an exaggeration.

I’m very passionate about trying to be the best mom I can be. I never want to look back and regret not giving it my all.

I like to use “……” too much, so I’m so sorry if that bothers you but I really can’t stop myself.

I have a hard time saying “no” or asking for help. I think it goes along with the being awkward thing.

I have OCD and ADD, so I made myself this mug! I have never-ending thoughts about things to do/make/craft/alter but can’t stop getting distracted long enough to do it all LOL.

I think grilled peanut butter & jelly sammies are SO yummy!!

I can’t have cream soda around the house, or else I will drink it all.day.long. Not kidding!

I don’t really like going out at night after it gets past 7 or so (once I’ve been home and comfy). I know, that just screams party animal huh?

I’m super messy. Hubby is always teasing me about how cluttered our house always is and different from the pics I post.

Once I am mid-craft, I obsess over every.single.detail….till I get distracted again, that is :)

That’s about it, I’ll add more stuff if I think of more. Feel free to contact me with any questions or even just to chat…..I’m lame at phone calls, but emails I’m better at.
