Me in a nutshell

HA, well let's just say I've been known for years to be raging nutcase! One who loves to be a bit off the beat and path, but somehow keeps my feet firmly planted and on the straight and narrow path of life.

I Heart

I love this amazing life, and my family and friends.. I love music of most kinds save rap. I love love love to laugh.. I love to take pictures and video candid moments. I love a real sub from back east.. I love good Italian food.. Good bagels. Yes, I love animals, especially dogs! I love the sound of the ocean.. I love the warmth of a summer breeze… and digging in the sand. I love looking at all the beauty around me. I am a cloud freak too.. I love my beloved husband and my Lord, Jesus!

Tell Us More

eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal

Delicious Pasta, of course! HANDS down it’s my go-to meal.. without a second of hesitation! Love pasta.. In fact, I believe I'm part pasta, and only 1/4 Italian! We have some sort of yummy pasta dish every Saturday evening.. it is always homemade- nothing from a jar here! We buy whole tomatoes in a large can, blend them for starters and add only fresh ingredients to whatever we chose for the style of sauce/gravy for the week.. We absolutely HEART having the leftovers in the morning too! It also includes an amazing salad, and a loaf of good Italian bread! I am so stinking hungry now!

beauty & fashion: I can skip these

shoes that hurt, socks, stockings and the like!

I NEVER go without these

Ms. Dry skin here, I must have a good moisturizer..I tend to be on the dry sensitive side, so I love my many various moisturizers.. my most favorite comes from Kiehl’s called Abyssine Cream+, and many others, including good ole Oil of Olay! I have this thing with facial moisturizers! I love products from Aveda, Origins, Epione of Beverly Hills.

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

My Gucci purse..

do-gooder: Why I am one
