About Me

Hello and welcome to my life. First off, I'd like to introduce you to my family. My wonderful boyfriend Randall and our beautiful son Ethan.

These two guys are my everything in life. 

Now that introductions are out of the way I'll tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a stay at home mom while I attend college. Currently I am working on my Bachelor in Accounting and plan on graduating in just under a year and a half. You know what that means... A party!! I didn't celebrate receiving my Associate Degree, so for this graduation I'm going to throw a big bash. 

I credit the creation of this blog to three things, my mother, my son, and Pinterest. My mother is the craftiest person I know. She can make and do anything, it's truly amazing. Growing up, and still to this day, she is always doing some kind of project. I go to her with all my questions and ideas. 

I've always wanted to be crafty and make things but I never really could come up with any ideas for anything. When I did try to do something it usually didn't come out like I thought it would. After I had my son however, my crafty juices started flowing. I guess it's just one of the many ways that he has changed me for the better. 

Entertaining has always been more my thing. I love parties and gettogthers with family and friends. I remember cooking for 15+ people for family dinners when I was 13. So ever since I've had access to the internet I've been creating word document after word document of recipes, crafts, party ideas, and decorating tips. And then came along Pinterest. Oh glorious Pinterest. Now everything I find is neatly recorded into my multiple boards. I always work much better when things are clean and organized.

And that is the story of how this blog came to be. Thank you for checking me out and I'm always on the look out for more tips and ideas. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated.
