My life as a math teacher, wife, daughter, and new momma.

About Me October 28, 2012

I am 30 years old.

I live in southwest Missouri.

I am married to the love of my life, my wonderful husband Adam.

We are parents to our sweet girl, Avery Grace, born on May 1st, 2013.

I teach high school math at a public high school.

I’m a bit obsessed with my K’s. My Kindle and Keurig…both surprise gifts from my husband!

I love reading fictional novels, watching good movies, and staying active by playing tennis, running, gardening, walking, and lifting weights.

I love eating and cooking.  We are getting close to eating totally Primal for two years…although I’d say we are only successful about 90%.  The busier we are, the harder it is to take the time to eat this way.  Every once in a while I can’t help but order pizza!

I love Jesus Christ, my one and only Lord and Savior.

Along with food, water, and shelter, I gotta have chocolate.

Do you prefer to stay in or go out?

Do you speak another language?

  • Not really.  I know some German, but not enough to say I “speak” it.

If you could go anywhere in the world you haven’t been, where would it be and why? 

  • I would love to visit Hawaii.  I love the beach, warm weather, and tropical locations.

What is a fashion don’t in your mind?

  • Wearing sheer leggings as if they are pants.  While some might enjoy it, I personally do not want to see your thong, butt, or lady bits through your so-called pants…if others can clearly so those things, then they are probably not pants!
  • I also think clothes should fit your body.  Ill-fitting, super tight clothes can make some of the skinniest women still look chubby, and unflattering.  If it’s too tight, don’t wear it!

Mac or pc?

  • PC, although if I didn’t require one for work, I would love a Mac.

Favorite websites to visit?

  • Pinterest
  • Amazon
  • Goodreads
