Random Me.

{ I think there is an in between about everyone.  Here I share mostly the surface stuff and sometimes I spill my guts with the deep stuff.  The middle stuff, not so much.  So here is some random-ness about me in case you were curious about my in between.} 

I don't really wear much makeup.  I just don't really care.  Although now that I'm in my thirtys { ACK!!} not just 30 I probably should care more.  The one thing I can't go without is mascara.  One time I bought a really expensive one and promptly got pink eye so I had to throw it away.  Then a couple of years ago I got some eyelash extensions from my cousin.  Wouldn't you know I'm one of the very few is is allergic to the dang glue.  No fun.  So yeah I stick to the cheap stuff.  I guess it keeps me humble.  Right now I'm loving Maybelline Illegal Lengths.  Best part?  It comes off SUPER easy.  


I've had the same wallet for 12 years.  Its an old Hurley one that has a leopard  H.  It is perfect and I can't find another perfect one to replace it for the life of me.  I've looked.  Good thing its holding up well.  Like surprisingly well.  Its probably one of the things I have owned the longest in my entire life.  


I play the piano.  Surprise!  Sorry friends, its just not something you go around telling people at church.  Then they ask you to play at church.  So don't go telling anyone at church.  


People ask me all the time how I got into sewing.  I got a sewing machine for Christmas about 6 years ago and when I was pregnant with Ivy I started by sewing blankets.  Straight lines are the easy part, but the best part is the fabric!  That is what really got me excited about sewing.  I found a cute little fabric store down the road from our house in Denver and it opened a whole other world of fabrics outside of JoAnns {which for the record has come a LONG way in the past couple of years}.  Then when Ivy was a baby I started making clothes for her.  My Mom and my MIL are both excellent seamstresses so they were a big help every time I had a question.  Its actually one of my New Years goals to get back to sewing a bit more this year.  


Pizza is my most favorite food.  Ever.  Of all.  Even more than apples which are my favorite fruit.  And even more than licorice, my favorite candy.  And just so you know Hot Lips in Portland is the best place to eat pizza.  



  1. I love that picture. It is classic "you" if you know what I mean.

    Piano? Really? I'm spreading the word...not really.

    And pizza, well, duh. I could sure go for some now.

  2. How have you managed to keep your piano playing secret for so long?! That is truly amazing. :) And I love that color too! So warm and happy.

  3. My husband and I moved from Portland to Denver a couple years ago! And yes, Hot Lips Pizza was a mazing! nice and greasy if I remember correctly :) What is the fabric shop you love in Denver, I'd love to know!
