Hey!! I'm super glad you found my happy little corner of the internet. I'm claiming the cool kids' table at the back of the cafeteria just for us.

I grew up at the edge of the Adirondack park in Upstate NY in a super tiny rural town (there were 49 people in my graduating class kind of tiny). I went to Ithaca College in an awesome city, but still a city and in the first week of being a student, I got left behind at a bus stop because I had zero idea how to use a public bus!! This is where I met The Husband.

We started dating when I was just 18, bought a house when I turned 21 and married when I was 23. But, honestly, if he asked me to marry him on our second date, I would have run away to Vegas with him. Seriously. We get along great! In fact, we remodel houses and RVs together-- without spilling blood!

I'm quite lucky that he knew exactly who he was marrying. I'm easily excited about little things and it's highly likely that I'm really laughing out loud when I "LOL". I employ food decoys to hide the 'good stuff' (I talk about that here) and I dance and wiggle when I'm eating something tasty! I love riding ATVs and getting muddy, bonfires and smores. My uniform is leggings and flip flops and I will always greet dogs before humans. I love to dance and sing in my living room, even to the disapproving looks from my dogs.

I have a sunny disposition without the rainbows and unicorns that often accompany 'those people'. This sunny disposition really serves me well in my job as an Independent Consultant with Pampered Chef. I love entertaining people while sharing information about product and recipes! I wanted something in my life to help me meet new people and reduce stress from my full-time job (I was a Social Worker and it was slowly sucking the life out of me...). I found that I really love helping my team to grow; personally and professionally. I love to watch them succeed!
