**This post was originally for the Ultimate Blog Party in 2008, but I think it sums me up pretty well and has links to some of my favorite posts**
I'm a 39 year old gal who is a wife(to Mark) of 20 years, the oldest daughter(translate: bossy)of some pretty fantastic parents and big sister to the most amazing siblings ever. I'm not a mommy, but I DO plan to be the Most Awesome Aunt Ever. Someday.
I work in the KY public school system as a K-5 library media specialist. I love my job for a lot of reasons, but mostly because every day I can count on one or all of these things happening:
1. Someone hugs me for no apparent reason.
2. Someone says "I love you" out of the blue.
3. Someone makes me laugh so hard I nearly pee my pants.
I started this blog as a way to document my adventures in learning to cook. I STILL can't, but I haven't given up completely. Along the way, I've taken up sewing and quilting as well. Honestly, I get a lot more satisfaction from sewing than I do cooking, so the crafty posts have kinda taken over!
Although I tend to be a trifle socially awkward and shy, I try not to take myself too seriously. I am the first to admit that I am dorky and often downright goofy. Hopefully my sense of humor doesn't come across as completely moronic here, but if it does, don't say I didn't warn ya!
I thought it might be fun to list some of my older posts(starting w/the first). You can get an idea of what this silliness that I call my blog is all about.
Now, I don't expect you to read ALL of these. Just pick and choose as you'd like, if you'd like. I'd love to hear from you! If you leave a comment here or on one of these old posts you will have made my day! :)
Here in my little corner of Western KY, you can't have a party without cake and punch. So I made ya'll some...well, not really...in fact if you were to come by the actual house I could only offer you some Cheetos and Dr. Pepper! But don't those cupcakes look yummy? SO Grab a cupcake, some punch, and let's get this party started!
