I was born to drink Diet Coke and snuggle grandbabies. I’m addicted to my Kindle, traveling the world in lavish elegance, eating out, driving too fast, and Pinterest.
I love making or buying clever gifts and writing poems to go along with them. I enjoy entertaining, and especially creating theme showers and parties. Some people call me the most organized person they know… I don’t correct them. I try to be creative, but many people steal my ideas. Before I think of them.
I’m determined not to become a crazy cat lady in my twilight years, so I spend some of my day behind a desk as an accountant-landlord-financier-entrepreneur-consultant of five businesses. I’ll never be a millionaire, but I’m certain I’d be good at it.
I’m happily married to my childhood sweetheart, have four exceptional children, and several (but not nearly enough) grandchildren. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
My creative streak started as a child when my mom and I would watch “Trading Spaces” every week. At age 14, I designed and redecorated my own bedroom, creating a bold pink and black striped space that my parents haven’t repainted…yet. I still love putting my own personal touches in all of the rooms in my Logan, Utah apartment.
I have three older brothers who were very protective of me growing up. In spite of guarding me vigilantly, by some miracle they permitted me to date and I met and married my dashing and handsome husband just after my freshman year in college..
I guess you could say I like to dabble in a bit of everything….in high school, I was involved in sports, church, music, and also served as a city ambassador. I attended USU on academic/athletic scholarships as a high jumper, and graduated with a degree in Statistics and Math. These days, the only jumping I’m doing is as mother of a ridiculously adorable baby girl, who, statistically speaking, holds 100% of my heart.
