Meet Kathy

My  name is Kathy. If you go to my first blog launch post, you will learn why I started this blog. In a nutshell: I have spent the last 22 years raising a family. I have gathered a wealth of information over the years and wanted a place to share that information. I hope this blog may be a resource to many in the pursuit of happy families. 

Here is a little bit about myself:

I am a total 80's chick. Born in 1970, my most influential years were during big shoulder pads and even bigger hair. Yup, those were the days! I was a 80's rocker through and through. Van Halen, Scorpions and Ratt were my noise pollution of choice; parachute pants and off the shoulder sweatshirts crammed my dresser drawers; and a bottle of Aqua Net was forever on my bathroom counter. And then there was Aaron, my High School sweetheart. We were joined at the hip at the tender ages of 14/16 and  haven't been separated since. I guess I was just a sucker for that long hair and guitar.

Some fun facts about me:

My favorite color - Green

My favorite books - Harry Potter

My favorite current musician - well.... of course that would be Aaron, but if I'm going off the board I would have to say currently (believe it or not) Lady Gaga. I just LOVE to dance and that lady really gets me groovin'!!

My biggest fear - Heights. I would say though, that it's not the heights per say that I'm particularly scared of. I think it's the falling to a gruesome death that makes me a little nervous in high places. 

My passions in life - My family is ALWAYS number one, but if I'm going strictly with personal passions I would say: running and fitness, nutrition, music, writing/blogging and travel.

Some of the things on my bucket list - be in a band with Aaron, visit every state in the US at least once, take surfing lessons, learn to ride a motorcycle, and visit the pyramids of Egypt.

My favorite food - Corn chips, peanut M&M's and sugar cookies.

Guilty Pleasure - Diet Dr. Pepper (do you see why I need to run so much!)
