About Me


My name is Jaime and I live in Tennessee.

In March 2008, I moved to Minnesota to be with my boyfriend. We were married in Minneapolis in June, 2010. Life is never boring. Part of the reason for that would be the kids that are down the hall as I type this information.
For the blog, I will refer to the kids as Button (11) and Peanut (8). These two are never boring. And as crazy as they can be, they are extremely well mannered and polite. Check out the "Kids Quotes" section to keep up with the completely off the wall things they usually say to us.

As of May 23, 2013, I am the legal mother to the kids. I adopted them and we now have what we call a "Family Birthday".

I have been with these kids since Peanut was just 2 years old and she's said before that she doesn't remember a life without me. I love them with all of my heart and soul and I cannot imagine my life without them in it.

In May 2014, we moved away from Minnesota and are now in Tennessee near my hometown of Chattanooga. 

This blog will have stories about the kids, road trips we take down south, food, my journey to a smaller pant size, Pinterest,and anything else that strikes me on that day. Oh and my nails. Got to blog about the hours that go into the art, right?

Random facts about me:
~ I was born and raised in TN but I support the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs!
~ I went to Catholic school for 12 years- I am not Catholic.
~ I was the tallest kid in my class until 6th grade.
~ It took 30 years to love my hair.
~ I admire people that use their blinkers.
~ I am an "encyclopedia of useless knowledge" due to my ability to tell you who was in what movie/show and when (although it's not useless when you really need someone to tell you answers to those questions).
~ I forget very little which can be a blessing and a curse.
~ I would rather listen to 80's and 90's on satellite radio than most of what's on the radio now.
~ I cannot live without the DVR. I have too many shows and a weird TV watching schedule.
~ I hate flying. I am not scared of it. I just hate that every.single.time. we fly, we get screwed. Delayed flights, canceled flights, etc. I prefer to drive no matter how far we have to go.
~ I pick the pepperoni off of my pizza and eat it first before eating the slice.

I'm glad that you found me and I hope you stick around as I try to make sense out of this life and try to be a positive influence on the kids.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me:


  1. Hi Jaime! I am a fellow southerner (Florida) turned Minnesotan. Moved here in 2008! I feel you on the curly hair, too. So glad to have you a part of the MN Blogger group! :)

    1. Hi Jess! Thanks for coming over and taking a look.

      Yup, the south can keep the humidity. :)

  2. "I admire people that use their blinkers."
    Best thing I've read all day!

    1. Thanks! And I'm glad I could make someone laugh.

  3. I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog today so I could come over here and peruse yours. I'm quite enjoying it! I lived in North Carolina for five years and now am in Wisconsin. I too prefer the cold winters to the unbearable so-hot-and-humid-you-can't-even-enjoy-them summers of the south. And I'm always listening to my 80s and 90s satellite stations rather than current music. I love 90s on 9 :)! Great blog!

    1. I'm glad you came over!
      And I hope you stick around!
