hi there!

me & Beau

Hi! My name is Bette. I’m a Scorpio.  I have 4 kids:  Chandler, Harry, Reagan, and Beau.  My husband JW is in the Air Force.

I started this blog a few years ago as a recipe blog but have been increasingly been enjoying writing about “stuff.”  I’m an expert at absolutely nothing, but I love cooking, pop culture, fitness, natural health and beauty, bike rides, and (my) kids. It felt a little limiting to only do food.

I’m also a skeptic and a smart ass.  I live a sober lifestyle.

I collect vintage dishes. My favorite color to decorate with is grey. Favorite for wearing is green, purple, or grey.

Favorite foods are buffalo wings, birthday cake, and nachos. Or if I’m talking to a healthy person, I love chopped kale salad with avocado, steamed salmon, and mangoes.  (I actually love all of those foods, but it’s all about balance, and I’m not pretending I always pick the right choice, hence my battle with controlling my weight.)

I love juicy chick lit, tv shows, and movies.  My favorites are Big Little Lies, Unreal, Top Chef, Law & Order SVU, and pretty much anything on ID channel.

I live near the beach in Virginia.

Thanks for visiting!
