About ME

Wife, Foodie, Traveler, Shopaholic.  I am a thirty-something tactfully-opinionated nurse living in the Midwest.  I believe shopping counts as cardio, tea cannot be too sweet, anything orange (and sparkly!) can cure a bad mood, and no one can have enough clothes, accessories or shoes.  I love to bake and indulge in celebrity gossip, cupcakes, reality tv, photography plus travel anywhere new or places that I’ve already graced, spend time with my family and live life the way I am meant to.  I am in love with my iPhone, husband and 2 wrinkly shar-peis.  Join me on the journey of my candy coated life.  Fasten your seatbelts!
This is the scene from ME!
