All About Moi

  Hi–party people!

So much to say so much to say…..let’s start with who I am. I am a twenty something  30 yr old girl who in the past few yrs has started focusing on a healthy lifestyle. I have transformed myself through watching what I eat, exercise etc.


 Below is me back in  2006 and I vow never to be that way again.

 I basically let myself go and stopped caring which is sad. I turned to food(in excess!) and didn’t work out at all and drank a wee bit too much as well. Now, not so much.

I love love love to cook and am always looking for yummy recipes to create in my kitchen and new products to try. I enjoy cooking with tofu, fresh veggies, oats, granola, whole wheat products and such.

I currently reside in Charlotte, NC

I have also lived in 

Phoenix, AZ

Morgantown, WV (GO WVU!!!)

Boca Raton, FL



Some other tidbits about me:

*I am very sacrastic and suffer from foot in mouth disease (but my heart’s in the right place I swear!)

*I could eat chips and salsa every day of my life and be happy

*I do not like going through revolving doors and will walk further if it means avoiding them

*I don’t like living in one place for too long and believe I was a military brat in a former life

*My favorite bands are The Killers, The Strokes, Muse,Interpol. u2, The Beatles and Sublime to name a few (I heart Pandora!)

*My family is all over the country.

*My ideal place to live would be the Pacific NW

*I work in finance but have a degree in Journalism (and am still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life)

*Am a frugalista!

 Things that I love:


Thift Stores:

    Oh my gosh – I immediately decided I must follow your blog when I read your first about me… *I am very sacrastic and suffer from foot in mouth disease (but my heart’s in the right place I swear!)

    awesome transformation! You look so much like my sister-in-law and that’s a very good thing. 🙂 She’s pretty and so are you!

    I suffer from that disease as well. Luckily I have a very soft voice so people don’t hear me the first time around.

    I love the Killers too! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Congrats on transforming your lifestyle!

    We have a ton of stuff in common. My first blog ever was called “foot in the mouth”. We also like similar bands and have both lived in Phoenix. I could totally live off of chips and salsa!!

    Munster, IN! Have you been to the 3 Floyds Brewery? I’m dying to go there but every time we drive to Chicago it’s bad timing – either early morning or late at night. Thanks for stopping by my little blog world. Cheers!

    My husband tells me I have no filter. Oh well, at least I’m honest, I guess 🙂 Coffee rules and the sushi and traveling make my list, too.

    i found you randomly in a comment section and had to stop on by after seeing a little tidbit about WV. GO EERS!!! fellow mountaineer here, and actually grew up in WV-born and raised. now i’m in VA but the heart will forever be in mountain mama land.
    also, coffee is my favorite thing. and the killers and the strokes (the latter being my fave band of ALL time) are some of my music choices as well.

    thanks for your comment on my blog! 🙂
    so great to “meet” another CLT bogger. we’re gonna have to organize some kind of meet up before the summer is over!

    Yay for journalists!!!
    How did you end up in finance btw? Do you enjoy it? I have no idea what to do with my journalism degree either!

    Congrats on the transformation! Anyone who loves Jim Gaffigan is a friend in my book 🙂 Can’t wait to read more!

    You are adorable!

    Just discovered your blog and read your “About” page. I feel like this is going to be a great blog to read because I’m also looking for a healthy lifestyle and have a healthy dose of snark. Oh, and the travel bug!

  15. Natalie January 18, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

    you look fantastic and what great motivation you are to someone who is looking to do the same (like me!) thanks for sharing your story via this blog!

    Hiya. I traveled over here from Allison’s blog…
    I’m in Charlotte as well. Who knew there were so many Clt bloggers?!

    Looking forward to checking out your site.

    I think you were beautiful then and now, if I may be so bold. 🙂

    And thanks for the thrift store underwear tip. {Shudder}…

  18. Valerie Furnas February 26, 2011 at 9:07 pm #

    Yum…decided to follow you when I read this. I don’t have foot in mouth disease but face-gives-it-all-away disease. No words necessary everyone knows what is on my mind with one look.

  19. Erin @ A Girl & Her Mutt March 8, 2011 at 9:45 pm #

    I can’t believe I never read this page! 🙂 It makes me like you even more.

    I love that you a. are snarky (a characteristic SORELY lacking in other popular food blogs) and b. can’t stand to live in one place too long. I have lived in NY, Louisville, Prague, Czech Republic, and now DC for the past 4.5 years and am BORED. So ready to move onto the next place! Thinking San Fran.

  21. Emma March 23, 2011 at 5:49 am #

    Haha, I love thrifting rule #1!
