About Me

Howdy, y’all!  As most of you probably already guessed from that, I am indeed a Texan.  I’m also a Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2008.  WHOOP!!  The hubby and I just moved back to Texas after living in Colorado for two and a half years.  We have two dogs, a miniature dachshund named Wesson and a bloodhound named Gunn.   They are my children and I spoil them as such.

Since moving back, I’m not working right now, focusing on some other things for a few months.  My free time is usually devoted to crafting, making jewelry for my Etsy shop, Style By the Spoonful, hiking, shopping, reading, playing video games (oh yes, I do play Call of Duty, and I’m not bad!) or doing some other activity with my hubby.

I love photography, and am currently learning to use our new Nikon D5100.  I love taking close up photos and nature photos.  When I get the chance, I also love photographing sports.  The hubs gets so frustrated with me when we go hiking because I am constantly stopping to take pictures (plus I’m just generally a slower hiker than him).  I’m just one of those people who wants to take pictures of everything so that I don’t forget how beautiful it was.  Or take random pictures of the pretty flowers. 🙂

I originally started this blog with no general direction of where it was supposed to go or what it was going to be.  Well, now it’s turned into a cooking/baking/crafting blog with a few personal posts here and there.  Many of my friends think I’m crazy for having gone to law school rather than become a kindergarten teacher or open a bakery.  Lucky for them, my hubby and I don’t eat a ton of sweets so they reap the benefits when I bake.  Opening a bakery is definitely on my wish list of the things to do if the hubby and I ever win the lottery and can afford to do so.  Until then, I blog about it and let my friends and Jeff’s co-workers enjoy my treats.

Who knows where this blog will end up going but I hope y’all enjoy the ride!

  1. Hi there! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a fitness/diet app and website. I saw your blog yesterday and it captured my interest!

    I was wondering if we can do a giveaway for your blog readers?

    Our website basically turns people’s fitness/diet goals into a level up game with challenges such as quitting soda for a week. We’re looking for new challenge ideas, so was thinking of holding a contest where your readers leave a comment on a health challenge idea + sign up on our site

    We’ll pick our favorite challenge idea, use it on our site, and give the winner either a free digital health scale, slow cooker, or digital heart monitor. We’ve done many giveaways for bloggers in the past – you can google ‘SlimKicker giveaway’ to see. I also encourage you to sign up for our site to see what we’re about too 🙂

    Let me know if you’re interested! You can email me back at sue.zheng (at) slimkicker (dot) com.
