Who's that girl?? And what does she want?


My name is Nettie. I am a wife and mother of three. I worked for many years in the life insurance/annuity industry. I had the opportunity to quit my job after the birth of our twins and now am a full time stay at home mommy! My husband and I have been married for 3 years. We have three children together. Our oldest son is 11 and our boy/girl twins will be 2 in December. My family is my life and I would do anything for any of them. I smile as much as possible and laugh at the dumbest things.

I started running last year and finished just finished my second half marathon this month. Running has become a way of life for me. I am addicted and really do enjoy it. Since the birth of my twins I have lost 75 pounds. I have done this with a combination of running/exercise and diet. Although, I am not perfect at either. I am human and I still struggle regularly. But I am always looking for new ways to push myself and keep me interested.

So there are a few reasons I wanted to start a blog.....

1. I still have about 20-25 pounds I would like to lose and need a little more motivation/accountability.  (Really just someone to kick me in the butt everyday)

2. I love to do craft/DIY projects, and a house that is still in the process of being finished (yes that we live in...really it's just a bunch of small projects that need to be done..ummm honey??).... I would like to start blogging about a project I do weekly. The good the bad and the epic fails.... Why the heck not? I'm a stay at home mom and you all are looking for entertainment.

3. I LOVE food and love to cook. I am always looking for and trying new recipes. Not all healthy, but all pretty amazing. I will be blogging about the meals and treats I will be making. How they go over in the house and what I would change in the future if anything..

So for now that is what I can think of...I know it will change along the way anyway!!!

Oh and in case you haven't figured it out.....I'm tattooed!!!

I have many many tattoos and continue to add as regularly as possible. My husband is tattooed and we wouldn't have it any other way!!
