Happy New Year and welcome to my blog. If you’re reading this, thanks, I’m happy you’re here and I should probably introduce myself. My name is Kari, pronounced like the word “car” with an ee sound at the end. Car-ee. Not Carrie, as in Underwood. We both have blonde hair but her legs are better. I’m working on that. I’m 37 (augh), a wife, a stepmom, an animal lover, a makeup hoarder, and a bargain shopper (I cannot resist a cute sweater from Walmart!). I was born with Transposition of Great Vessels and I’ve had several open heart surgeries. I’m a proud alumni of Iowa State University (go Cyclones!), I cuss way too much, and I still call my mom every time I need advice.
What will my blog be about? I don’t really know….Probably whatever I’m thinking about that day. Some things I probably will share will include stepmom stuff, affordable fashion (something we all need), healthy food, and my general musings of the day. What it won’t be about- home decorating. Although I can put together a killer outfit, I don’t seem to have that talent for the home. What can I say, it’s a weakness…
Now that you know a little about me, let me just say that the first 5 days of 2018 have been a shit storm so far. My grandma passed away of Alzheimers, I managed to get some nasty virus and I’ve been sick for 5 days now, and some other stuff is happening. But my husband and I have set some big goals for this year and we’re determined to make them happen. One of my big goals is to start and maintain a blog . Although I can write, I have no idea how to make blog look pretty or how to upload and post. So it’s a challenge. And that’s where you come in. What sorts of things do you want to know about? What burning questions do you have for me? What do you want to know about in 2018??
So anyhow, I’m going to sign off now. Thanks for checking out my blog! Happy New Year to you!
