getting to know me...

I've noticed several new followers around here lately, so I thought I'd take the opportunity introduce myself by telling you a few things you may not have picked up yet.

I am in no way lactose intolerant...I appear I have an addiction to ice cream.

I've been drinking coffee since I was 17 (it probably stunted my growth).

latte, hot or iced...I need my caffeine! 
My husband is an outstanding cook and I try not to take it for granted.

When I'm not blogging or baking you may find me upcycling anything from an empty bottle to a shirt to a book

I've lived in 6 states and Boston has my heart!

I love to travel and see new places, whether stateside or overseas.
Backpacking in White Mountains of New Hampshire, our honeymoon in Alaska, hiking Mt Pacaya in Guatemala, standing by the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland

My favorite place on earth is Colorado and I lived there three times for a total of 12 years.

Tell me something interesting about you!
...and don't forget to enter the giveaway from Petunia Blooms!


  1. Cute post! I agree, coffee is my lifeline. Do you drink it black? That's my favorite ;)

    1. I don't usually drink it black. I prefer it with half and half or milk (no sugar or sweetener).

  2. Love the new blog look :). I'm lactose intolerant AND addicted to ice cream! Thank goodness for lactaid pills :D

  3. 1. I love coffee and I pretty much love anyone who loves it too.
    2. I so want to go to Boston! I should visit :)
    3. I love to travel too, but Mt. Pacaya would not be on that list. I love Guatemala, but that volcano wanted to eat me alive!
    4. I also love the new blog look :)

  4. Fun fact- I'm from Alaska originally- anchorage. We moved when I was 9.

  5. what a fun post! looks like you've done a lot of hiking. i want to go to the white mountains now - looks pretty! and wow, 6 states!

  6. I love your new header. And the fact that you are so into ice cream and coffee. Me too. I eat way too much ice cream. On our trip, we took ice cream breaks most afternoons. Not good for the waistline.=)

  7. LOVEEEE this. i have never drank coffee. i've tried it but i hated it. no way. DC is my caffine source.


    Jen is also an AMAZING cook. It's sweet having someone with chef-like skills in your kitchen, who spoils you with special meals, eh?

    Something interesting about me, hmmmm. I'm a Leo in Western Astrology and a Snake in the Chinese Zodiac. My favorite number is 13. I adore being home with Jen and our fur and feather babies, above all else. I'm a shopaholic. I love shirts. I've rode a bareback bronc and a bull in the rodeo and so much more!

  9. I love this! I've nominated you for a Liebster award on my blog. Check it out! :)

  10. Such a fun post! I also have an addiction to ice cream but I've been transitioning to froyo lately : )
