This is our life … shaken together!!  The good, the bad, the tasty, the crafty, the fun, the crazy, the kids and the cats!! Scroll down for a little more about life behind the blog!


The Girl Behind the Blog
Hi … I’m Keri!  I grew up as an only child in a small town and loved it.  I think I have always been creative, I love the color red, lists, reality TV, coffee with excessive cream, singing at the top of my lungs, pretty paper, paint, sugar and my family.  By day, I work in HR, and by night and between baseball games and school projects and in the wee hours of the morning, I am usually here.  Welcome!

The Saint – Chris

The hubs.  The Mr.  My partner in crime.  My best friend and soul mate.  He puts up with my control freak tendencies and bossiness and ridiculously early alarm.  He likes all things spicy.  He underestimates himself.  He asks me to dance in our kitchen.  We met on a blind date on New Years Eve 1997, married in 2000, have two stinky, funny, unbelievably cool boys and I cannot imagine life without him. 

The Kids – Camden & Kaleb (AKA The Bugs)

One Little and one Bigger.  One blond, one brunette.  One solid and stocky, one long and lean.  Both have Chris’ family’s dimpled chins.  Both are baseball nuts and still call me Momma.  Both are loved more than life itself.  Seriously, they are my favorite things on this planet.  Or any other planet for that matter. 

The Cats
Adding a little furry chaos and unconditional love to our nutty household:
*Bitty – or the Ninja.  Destroyer of all paper products!  I frequently post her antics on Instagram.  
*Awesome (aka Bossy aka Boss) – Our lovey Boss was put down 8/9/12.  His story is here.  
*Our new little love, Bella, came home with us on August 25th, 2013 … her story is coming soon!
