About Me


I’m southern girl with a lot of sass, I love to talk and a mouth that could make a sailor blush…although I hate to admit that last part.  I have a pretty awesome husband, and three crazy kiddos, and I thank God for them every day.  My passions include my family, writing, Harry Potter, history, and coffee among other things.  I would do unforgivable things for Cadbury Caramello’s, and heaven help Danielle Radcliffe if I ever get my hands on him.  Creeper status: obtained.

The Blog:

My life is not one size fits all, so I don’t think my blog should have to be either.  You will see me write about everything from parenting to finances, recipes to gardening.  One thing you will not find here is a perfect family facade.  My family is real, and so is my blog.  It’s just the way it is.


The Crew:

Dusty is my crazy, kid at heart, husband.  He’s a hard worker with a heart of gold, and I consider myself very lucky that he chose me to be his wife.  When he’s not swinging the kids around by their ankles he can be found playing video games or looking up Magic the Gathering cards.  He isn’t too fond of the camera, so you won’t see him very often, but I’ll give him a pass on that since he supports my crazy tendencies (and often surprises me with sweets).

Addi is our oldest, and she’s a stick of dynamite wrapped up in a tiny package.  She loves to read, dance, sing, and do anything ‘crafty’.  She also loves to tell jokes, and will then explain the joke to you ala Sheldon Cooper to make sure you know why it was funny.

Atlas is our wild man, from the moment he wakes up (usually around 5:00 a.m.) until he passes out in the evening he never takes a moment to stop.  He loves trucks, dinosaurs, and Elmo, or any combination of the three.

Austen is our sweet, cuddly baby.  She’s loves food, her mama, and that’s about it for now.  She is a sweet, cuddly, ball of love and really is a great addition to our little family.
