Just the beginning

I've always said I was going to do it and look, I really am blogging!! I've made several attempts at starting a blog, only to let my self doubt get the best of me. So here I am and I'm not giving up this time.

If you're actually taking the time to read this and care, here's a little about me. My name is Kelly and somehow I ended up in Indiana, from my home state of Michigan, about twenty years ago and haven't figured out a way out yet. I work from home doing this and that, but by profession, I'm supposed to be a writer, at least that's what I went to college to do.

I'm mom to four beautiful children. Nick is my oldest and just turned 13. He is a video game addict and it's rare that you ever see him away from his games. Next is my diva, my 8-year-old Katie. She just loves fashion, but is learning how to do it on a tight budget, which is important in our house. Then there is my 5-year-old twins - Abby and Luke. They are as different as can be and both a bundle of trouble. Abby is outspoken, has an Irish temper and watch out when she gets mad, but she loves people just as passionately as she gets mad. Luke, has been calm and quiet since birth. He's all boy though and he'll even take a run at his big brother, if he gets ticked off enough.

I can't forget about my hardworking, sometimes a little crazy, husband, Steve. He is the love of my life, my rock and my biggest fan. This is the second time around at marriage for both of us and we couldn't be happier. We're just coming up on our second anniversary soon. We love the Indy 500 and just racing in general and come the month of May, I'll probably be blogging from the track.

What else about me, hmm, oh, I'm a dork. I love William Shakespeare, RenFaires and my Kindle Fire. I'm also a couponer and love the thrill that I'm saving money. In fact, I will be creating a couponing section, along with recipes using the ads for what's on sale this week. I guess that's all for now.


  1. You did an awesome job. You should be proud. And I don't want the recipes because that means I have to make them, I just want the good stuff that you do make:)

  2. Way to go Kelly, can't wait to read the next chapter.

  3. Nice work! I'm trying to set up my own just for giggles. I may have to fire up the desktop, my phone is a little goofy.
