Let’s Talk about Me
Welcome to Angie in the Thick of It! This blog name/address/design is brand spankin’ new, but I’m not! I’ve been blogging for about 2 years at SeriouslyAHomemaker.com and have finally broken free from the shackles of that title (I’m rarely serious and I don’t really enjoy writing about Homemaking! What was I thinking?)
I am a boring, extremely organized, clean freak who thinks Diet Coke is going to kill you. Aaaaand… it’s opposite day.
These are the yellow stairs at my kids’ school where I let my 4 year old daughter sit for a minute one day by herself. Then the cops came.
I am a stay-at-home mom with a fancy bachelor’s degree in homemaking (who get’s those?!), but I don’t think I’m terribly good at the home-keeping arts and I definitely lack 3 things in that department: speed, efficiency, and consistency. The good news is that I still like myself and I think you are A-okay if you are sorta mediocre at homemaking and momming too. That’s why were here, holding hands right now.
My mind’s obsession is with design and DIY home improvement. I have way more ideas and plans than time or money. This is harmful to my (mental) health. I love to tell you about the things I’m working on and about the paint colors found on my knuckles on any given day. Your job is to get really sick of me dragging simple projects out for months at a time and then yell at me to “JUST FINISH THE DANG STAIRS/BARSTOOLS/KIDS ROOMS ALREADY!”
My most popular projects have been my Barn Wood Head Board with Built-in Lamp, the “How to Hide Cords in Trimwork” tutorial, and my Wipe-able Laminated Barstools. You might also like the kids’ rooms, even though they don’t look like this and this anymore. To see my house in pictures, visit my Pinterest Board about it. My house is prettier on my blog than in real life. As am I.
I have a fatal disease. There is no cure. Please donate money to help find the cure to my PROCRASTINATION-itis.
I have a thing for chocolate chips, which I buy under the guise that I will bake with them. Silly, silly, me. I like to wash down the semi-sweetness with Diet Coke from McDonald’s. I go there every single day. Except Sunday. I have my limits. And my muffin-top.
We live in the DC Metro Area. Does that sound important or fancy? Oh well.
It sorta bothers me when people use more than three periods in punctuation……… <– that bothered me.
This is the part where I run out of things to say. Go click around or something.
