My name is Elie (pronounced L E) and I am
a 20something Stay at Home Wife from the Midwest. I was born, raised,
educated and married in the great state of Indiana. My husband of a
little over a year and I live in the middle of the state with our two
fluffy kitties and our little puppy. No babies yet, but hopefully soon.
am a believer of God and take my faith with me everywhere I go. I am
one of seven siblings, and yes we are all crazy...in our own ways. There
are five girls and two boys, not to mention four brother-in-laws, three
nephews and a beautiful niece that steals the show every chance she
gets. My parents are strong, brave and faithful people who have
everything to do with how awesome I am :) I also have the worlds best
in-laws! No, I'm not just saying that. I doubt any of them will ever see
this page, but all four of them are such wonderful people.
college I chose the amazing Indiana University in Bloomington, IN where
I earned my BS in Sports Marketing and Management. This is where I met
Hubby. I applied for a server position at a local restaurant and he
interviewed me. I later found out he didn't even want to hire me because
I seemed too flighty!! Jerk! But after years of never even talking to
the guy I ended up running into him at an Indiana Pacers game. He was
attending the game and I actually worked for the team selling season
tickets. It was a Dream Job that paid pennies. So when Hubby said he was
interested in buying tickets I was all over it. After convincing him to
purchase a huge ticket package in awesome seats, I left the company
only to start dating him a few months later. Ironically enough I ended
up going to the games and sitting in the seats I sold him! He later
admitted he bought them to impress me. Guess it worked! Five years later
we are happily married and totally in love with each other! God blessed
me with a man who is my best friend, my strength, my rock, my secret
keeper and the biggest cheerleader a girl could ask for. I thank God
everyday that I have him (and he has me :).
I have a
dry sense of humor sometimes, but most of the time I'm as goofy as it
gets. I love to laugh, play pranks on people, read, cook, and dance. I
teach Zumba twice a week and I love it. It's a chance for me to get out
there and go nuts while getting paid for it! Can't beat that right?!
Plus it helps burn off all the calories I consume devouring all the
sweet treats I make and share with you on here.
personal goals I hope to obtain during 2014 are 1: to love onions and 2:
to get craftier. What great cook doesn't like onions, right?! I need to
get over my hatred of them so I can start to experience all the
cuisines I skip over due to that particular ingredient. I am also hoping
to purchase my first hot glue gun. You may laugh at this, but all good
crafters need one! I feel that will help push me to do more crafts. I
have great ideas, just not great supplies. So, once I get that "gun"
under my belt I can hopefully expand my crafting abilities. And of
course I will share my journey of obtaining both of these goals with all
of you on here. Come back often to see how it's going. So if you're
ready, join me in this crazy journey we call life!
Thanks for stopping by!
