Hi, I’m Rebecca. Thanks for visiting my blog :) Perhaps you want to know a little more about me in order to decide whether to stick around or move on. I think the “About Me” page of a blog can make up your mind in about 3 minutes.
Now I’m feeling a lot of pressure to be interesting. And relevant. And funny. And thought-provoking. And stylish.
Ok, here’s the skinny: I’m not by the way. I’ve got about 20 lbs to lose and after taking a stab at the whole weight loss thing and blogging my way through it, I eventually waved the white flag after getting pregnant with my second child. It was a bummer that I didn’t make more progress, but I let myself off the hook during my pregnancy and ended up craving salads anyway! If you want to check out my journey, you can find it here.
Now that my sweet Avery Jane is no longer a newborn, but a sweet little butterball baby who sleeps and eats on a regular schedule, I’ve decided to put energy into cleaning up my diet and getting the pounds off once and for all. I’m down 30 pounds so far and would like to lose 20 more to get down to my post-honeymoon weight and I’ve decided to do it with good, old-fashioned clean eating and exercise. You can check out my clean recipe ideas on the eat.clean.quick. tab. I’m not all nutso about it though, because I know that God loves me and thinks I’m beautiful and since my 29th birthday, I’ve committed to agreeing with Him :)
I’m a 33year-old SAHM (stay at home mom). I was formerly a full-time working mom and let me just say, those women deserve MAJOR PROPS! It’s a hard gig, yo.
I used to juggle my position as Executive Administrator at a consulting firm in the banking industry with my real passion which is taking care of my husband & daughters and keeping up with this blog. It was a crazy couple of years, but I’m so thankful for the experience because it taught me a TON and gave me an even greater appreciation for being able to stay home now.
I married my high-school sweetheart 10 years ago. He’s a kind-hearted, all American, squeaky-clean smarty pants. He’s currently in medical school and the Navy. Fasten your seat belts and keep your hands in the car at all times. It’s going to be a wild ride!
I’m borderline obsessed with green living and healthy eating, I adore red wine, coffee and outdoor festivals. I’m addicted to cardigans and pearl earrings. I love Jesus and strive to become more like Him everyday. I procrastinate like it’s an Olympic sport. I’m a voracious reader and adore the smell of old books. I make really good chocolate chip cookies and will throw down with anyone who thinks their cookies stand a chance. For reals.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you decide to stay :)
