I'm empty nester-wifey-teacher-grandmother-chef-crafter, who loves to learn new stuff. I'm always trying a new recipe, reading a crafting or decorating blog, playing with grandkids, painting something, or wasting time on Facebook.
|Here's me with 3 of my grandkiddos.....lub them.....|
My very favorite thing to do in this world is hang with my hubs because he is funny and he always makes me laugh. We like to eat yummy food, juggling our plates and laptops, on our own individual couches, watching something on Netflix or Redbox. Yes, it's true, we are classic couch potatoes. Or we like to go play with family on the lake, the waterpark, the cabin, hiking a trail or going to one of the Utah festivals, or just hanging around. Check out one of my favorite days this year at Thanksgiving Point Farm.
My third fav thing to do is have family and friends over for a dinner party because I love to cook and I love to EAT, and I love to entertain and decorate for holidays. And I love my 4 kids. So I started a foodie blog to share all my recipes and entertaining days with my kids. (in case I die in a plane crash or something). Check it out http://weekdaychef.blogspot.com.
My fourth fav thing is teaching elementary school and this will be my 20th year!! Woot!! I get to, you know, use paint and glitter and I get PAID for it!! I'm just waiting till somebody catches up to my scam! I love kids and I love that feeling of seeing kids "get it" when they learn something new. If you are a teacher too, check out my teacher blog http://pattiesclassroom.blogspot.com.
And 5th favorite thing to do is listening to beautiful music while I'm out in nature. I love my cabin at Bear Lake and walking through a waterfall hiking trail, or jet skiing on an aqua blue lake with my ipod in my ear, or gardening with the boombox on LOUD and seeing my flower bulbs erupting in the springtime. And if chocolate could be part of nature, I would add it to my list. But it's not so I'll end there. But if you love music too check out my Primary Music Leader blog. http://pattiesprimaryplace.blogspot.com.
I've been a music leader 4 different times and I've led kids' choirs and done many 1st and 2nd grade end of the year productions. I can teach an old dog a new trick, or a young dog a new trick, or a person something about old dogs....I've got one of those too. His name is Bruce. We call him Brucifer when he is bad. He's bad a lot! :D My hubs made this funny video. Don't watch it for long because nothing at all happens. He just lays there the entire time! Poor Bruce! Daddy makes fun of him....:O
Thanks for visiting me and my blogs. Send me an email of you want to get in touch with me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Or just Facebook message me cuz I'm probably playing on Facebook today anyway!
