I lived most of my life in a small town called Arab, and a few years in Union Grove. Both are country… and so am I. I moved to Birmingham, Alabama in 2012 and here I am 7 years later. I take a lot of { iPhone } pictures and share almost all of them. I love to cook { with love and butter } – and I like to think I’m pretty good at it. My better half is Wesley (also known as Wesley Babe by my four year old) and my mini-me is Jase – both of which have my heart so full it could explode at any moment – don’t worry… I’ll post pictures. I love them both with all my heart and we love making memories! I’m pretty straightforward { sometimes that gets me in trouble! } and I tend not to leave out any details, if you know what I mean.

Jase is 4 and life moves in warp speed lately! He’s the smartest kid I’ve ever seen – I know…all moms say that! – and has an awesome memory. He remembers everything we tell him and soaks up knowledge like a sponge. His favorite things are trucks, tractors, trains, and Paw Patrol. He loves going to “school” and playing with his friends. Our favorite thing to talk about when I pick him up each day is what he had for lunch and who he loved playing with that day. And also how many times he had to poop…

The food I cook is Southern. And I mean Southern to the fullest extent of the word. I believe in butter and frying pans. My dishes almost always have brown sugar in them, and usually end up with a dash of smoked paprika, garlic powder, or ranch powder… usually always a combination of the three. I love putting weird things together – like cheese and honey buns – and the first thing I ever learned to cook was eggs in the microwave.

I originally started my blog in 2014 as a place to update on my pregnancy. I started it in my 4th week and haven’t stopped since. Now, years later, I still use it to post updates on my son, but now it’s combined with posts on our family life, the food we cook, and the fun we have. I also love the comments and messages I get from my readers, so keep them coming!

More about me:

  • Some days I talk too much. Some days I don’t want to talk to anyone. That will probably never change.
  • I take many, many, many pictures almost daily… with my iPhone.
  • No matter how many times I proofread, you will find errors in my posts.
  • And, I, overuse, commas!
  • I went to Los Angeles when I was 23. Most amazing trip ever.
  • I use recipes when I cook, but only for the measurements. I make up my own ingredients.
  • I love to cook huge, homemade meals… but usually only do it on the weekends.
  • I worked in a county jail for several years and was a firefighter for just as many. If you need a butt whipping, CPR, or a fire put out… here I am…

Seriously, I’m horrible at blogging. Not the actual writing part, but the remembering to do it part. I hope you all enjoy reading as must as I love posting…

when I remember to do it.
