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.
I got pretty serious about eating clean after Avery was born (You can check out my clean recipe ideas on the eat.clean.quick. tab) but I’m not all nutso about it 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 recently had my 3rd child (a boy!) and I did Whole30 about a month after he was born. Whole30 totally changed the way I eat, and I continue to follow the plan most of the time while also giving myself lots of grace because I can tend to get obsessed with eating perfectly. Such a silly thing when people around the world are hungry (this post changed my perspective drastically).
I’m a 34year-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 family 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 11 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 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 :)
