Hi there. Welcome to my newest blog, A Little Something Lovely! Some of you may know me from my food blog, Sing For Your Supper (it’s pretty famous…it reaches literally tens of readers every day), some of you may just be perusing the internet for random crap to kill time, and the rest of you are most likely my family.
This blog is a place for me to post my decorating disasters adventures, obnoxiously and shamefully post pictures of my babies (furry and human), and let off a little steam after a long day of baby-wrangling. Yes, I used the word ‘wrangling’; you try chasing after a fully mobile, red-headed 9 month old with the attention span of a ferret who hates having her diaper changed for 12+ hours a day. ‘Wrangling’ is the only word to describe it. Woops, I just played the annoying “mommy card”, didn’t I? Sorry; I’ll try to do better.
Since some of you are brand new and have no idea who I am or what I’m like, I’ve put together a little “getting to know you” list (you should all be singing “Getting to Know You” from The King and I in your heads right now…it’s ok- go ahead and sing while you read). Here we go:
My husband, Joel and I just moved from the Dallas area to back home, where we both grew up, met, and fell in love (aw.).
Joel is my 24-hour, built-in tech support. It’s wonderful having your very own hot geek on hand for when things go wrong. He also happens to be my best friend and the best baby daddy I could have ever asked for.
We have a 9 month-old baby (the aforementioned red-headed ball of energy) named Cassidy, who happens to be the world’s smartest and most beautiful baby. Really. We have a certificate.
We have a Schnauzer mix named Izzy who also happens to be a giant ball of energy. We call her Izzy Bear because when her fur grows out and gets all crazy, she sort of looks like a little black bear.
I sing opera. I just finished my 5th year with the Fort Worth Opera and then retired until who-knows-when to be with my baby girl more. I may never go back. I kinda dig this new life.
My all-time favorite comfort food, hands down, is warm chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. Like, so hot and gooey you can’t even pick them up because they’ll just fall apart. Good stuff.
When I was a little girl, I gut-shot a lizard with a BB gun, then cried my eyes out. Even though I had been aiming at him. (This sounds a little like a Johnny Cash song…).
I buy Pond’s Cold Cream just so I can open it up and smell it from time to time. It reminds me of spending the night at my great-grandmother’s house when I was little.
I love cheese more than any person on the planet. I’m sure of it. So much so, I get cheese in my stocking every Christmas (I’m telling you…awesome husband!).
There you have it; a few random facts about yours truly! I hope you’ll enjoy spending some time in my little corner of the world…I sure enjoy sharing it with you! Be on the lookout over the next few days for pictures of my new house and a few before/after projects! Lots of fun coming your way!
