All About.....Me!

I know blogging is going to slow between Christmas and New Years, so I'd dong a quick impromtu
"All About............" Series 
Sound fun??  I've got several All About posts lined up  - - wahoo!

So let's kick it off with All About me:
 Hi, I'm Mandy!  I guess I should have asked for questions that you want answered - it's hard to think of what to write!

I was born in 1979 - - google images were sketchy at best, so let's just stick with the good ole penny:
1979 Lincoln Penny

I was born and raised a little north of Kansas City, right here in the midwest.  I have one younger brother. We moved back here a few years ago to be by family, and I just love it.

I went to college at Missouri Southern and got my degree in Sociology.  I worked a few years when we were first married and when my oldest was little then turned the working life over to Trevor.

I met Trevor on a blind date - I should probably do a whole post about that sometime.  I love hearing people's "how we met" stories.  Anyways, we were married 10+ years ago and now have 4 super awesome kiddos:

I obviously enjoy crafting and sewing and blogging.  I love redoing rooms although I struggle with the "decorating" aspect.  I love trying any sort of crafting, but I've never been into scrapbooking.  I've tried a few paper crafts lately - that's about as close as I've come.  I think my favorite is sewing, although I stick to basic projects.  I {heart} designer fabric.

I feel like I can yap away on my blog, but in real life I'm pretty reserved.  I have to drag Kate around with me because she's a "talker" when I'm just not.  I am planning on attending my first blogging conference in April and I'm afraid I just might stand against the wall and not talk to anyone the whole time...

Anyways, you can read more about me on....you guessed it....my "about me" page.  Here's our most recent picture, from Christmas Morning as we headed to church:

Great idea! I am definitely with you on the love of hearing "how we met" stories. Hope you will share yours sometime.

Thanks for sharing your life with us. I love the how we met stories to... I met my hubby on match.com! It really does work. We both live in the same town but had never met, met on 10/28/05 and married on 10/13/06!! Happy New Year!

I love hearing how we met stories too. Hope you'll share your story sometime. I never would have guessed you were shy or anything from reading your blog -who knew?

Thank you for sharing this. Your family is so stinkin' cute! Happy New Year!

Mandy- Your family is adorable! You will have a blast at the blog conference and everybody will be so excited to meet you! I would be:) Take care-

What conference are you going to in April? I really, really want to go to one... It just seems like their all either too far away or fall during the week when I have to be at my full time job.

Such a beautiful family! I love reading more about people, so I loved this. I've been reading your blog for just about forever (or as long as I have blog stalked!), so I love getting to know you a bit better. :)

what blog conference are you going to, and where is it? I would love to meet up with other bloggers, not sure if that will ever happen but maybe?!

I would love to read the "how we met" story!

Thanks for sharing- I love knowing that there is a REAL person behind all the crafty wonders that I read about online.

I also need to know- what blog conference are you going to...There aren't many mid-western bloggers so I'd love to meet a few :)
