I am a single mom to 6 children – three teens & three under 10. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, graduated high school in St. Louis in 1998 (that should tell you how old I am!).

I consider myself an ambivert… Ambiverts are people who don’t really prefer one way of functioning over another. In other words, you could say they’re the neutral, middle-ground hippies. They’re equally comfortable in situations where the introvert feels most at home and situations where the extrovert is having a good time. …so yeah, I can be both and feel comfortable in any setting I am put in. Except, I would rather text or email rather than talk on the phone, haha!

I have been blogging and reviewing off and on for several years; it all started when I won a giveaway for a book – hooked ever since. What can you expect from me? Family friendly recipes, household items and decor, makeup and beauty reviews, and giveaways!
