Hi, the internet! Lots of friends have been advising me to start a blog, and so I have and this is it. I'm not terrifically interesting, but I am interested in lots of things and I will be rambling about them in this space. A brief introduction:

I'm a 29 year old stay-at-home-mother of two. In the past two years I have lost and kept off 117 pounds through diet and exercise. I'd very seriously considered a gastric bypass at one point, but the fact is that I love food and was saddened by the thought of giving it up. There will be lots of food and cooking talk here. I am interested in fitness as well, but that's generally not as fun to read about.

I read a lot. I did the 50 Books In 2009 challenge last year, and ended up reading 71 books. So there will probably also be book talk.

Expect to hear about my family, my friends, and my attempts at cultivating a hobby. (One of my New Year's resolutions is to cultivate a hobby of some sort, but I am not particularly successful at that kind of thing in general. Right now the hobby is to be sewing, but we'll see how it goes.)

So anyway, welcome to my little corner of the web. I look forward to seeing you around!


  1. Hey, you did it! Go you!
    Aw, lookit, you said welcome in French. <3

  2. How wonderful! I look forward to reading you entries.
