My Photo


Hi and welcome!!! My name is Betsy and I'm the married mother of 2 (boy 9, girl 4.5). I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I am a college graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in design and merchandising. My husband and I have owned our own businss for 14 years. Before we had kids I worked in our business full time, after kids I became a stay at home mom (working part-time from home).

I feel very blessed that I have had the opportunity to be a full time mom, it is truly the greatest part of my life. I started this blog to have something of my own that is fun and gives me a sense of accomplishment, but doesn't take me away from my family for 12 hours a day.


Reading (especially funny, witty romantic comedies), dancing, playing with my kids, date nights with my hubby, cooking, hanging out with my girlfriends, dirty martinis, working out/yoga, and entertaining my friends and family.
