About Me

Well, HELLO there!!

A lil bit about me:
  • Potatoes are considered a must-have for a quality dinner.  Why, you ask?  Because I grew up on a potato farm in Idaho.  
  • I have freakish feet.  I don't know why this important for you to know, but I'm putting it down anyways.  You can ask me about it sometime.
  • I married Hubster in May of '06.  He was also deemed mentally unstable at that same time.  I'm sure there's no connection...
  • I'm the mailman's daughter.  Okay, so that isn't entirely true but I look nothing like my family.  I'm the only redhead in the entire family tree, and I have a blonde sister and a brunette sister.  My family looks like this:

You explain that to me.  :)

Anyway, you are probably wondering why I am here and why you should care.  Well, I am here because after marrying my wonderful husband I got comfortable.  TOO comfortable.  You know the drill--we eat our emotions including the happy ones.  I relaxed into wedded-bliss and the extra pounds that decided to keep me company.  I was okay with it until one day I woke up at 5'5.5" weighing 178 lbs and realized that the girl in the mirror looked nothing like the girl I had in my head.

So here I am.  I am committing to moving forward and changing my life.  For me.  For my husband.  For my future kids.  And for you, because you make a huge difference in my journey just by being here and supporting me.  I enjoy your company, so please stick around.  :)

I love hearing from people, so please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions or just want to say hi!
