Introduction I love to write about DIY on the cheap. Basically I am Martha Stewart. Without the money. Or the fancy cars. Or the hired help. Or the intricate art projects. Ok I am nothing like Martha Stewart. I'm a mom to two great girls. A wife to one amazing hubs. And the food source to one unbelieveably lucky eight year old goldfish. Welcome to our life. *edited to add in the year 2020, the goldfish is now 14 years old. WE WIN.
Interests My amazing family, my loyal friends, reading the backs of cereal boxes, gardening (aka-trying not to kill shit), running for my life, decorating with garage sale junk, John Hughes, obsessively loving my pets, organizing shit, creating music playlists, half-ass cooking.
Favorite Movies ANY AND ALL JOHN HUGHES MOVIES. Yes, even Curly Sue. Yeah, maybe not that one. . Anything with Vince Vaughn, John Cusack or Tom Hanks or that makes me cry or laugh (if it makes me do both then I probably own it).
Favorite Music Everything with a beat.
Favorite Books Too many to list but the authors I look for at the library are- Jennifer Weiner, Janet Evanovich, Emily Giffin, Sophie Kinsella and Stephanie Meyer.
