About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Stay at home mom / Writer/ Hairstylist
Location Orem, Utah, United States
Introduction Hi! Come on in! I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend. On this blog I talk about mothering, cooking, my boys (I have three), health, the weather, and whatever else pops into my head! I was a hairstylist for 15 years but have stepped back from that career to raise my guys and focus on writing. I work hard at planning and cooking meals at home but sometimes Little Caesar's wins. I am naturally a "messy" but am always trying to be a "neat-y". I value people and am an extravert although I love the occasional night to myself with no one around me. I have been known to dance a small jig when I have the house to myself. As a mom, I am in a work in progress. I make more mistakes than I care to admit but I pray that God will sort it all out in the end and help me keep it together along the way. I'm a big fan of alternative remedies and will try anything natural that may help my kiddos get and stay healthy. Although I gotta love my pediatrician! Thank you for stopping by!
Interests Writing, cooking, parenting, beauty products of course!, theology, human behavior.
Favorite Books The Little House series, Secret Life of Bees, Girl from the sea of Cortez, The Blue Island, anything by C.S. Lewis, Most books by Alexander McCall Smith, All poems by Shel Silverstein.... And many more. I love to read when I have the time.

In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?

Because it would wake you up! All that cold water on your bare naked self.
