Welcome to my very first blog post. I am so excited to share the world of Rebecca with you all. My head is just full of so many ideas and thoughts I swear I have to sit down sometimes just to get my mind to relax. I am constantly thinking.. I often have a problem where I tend to think out loud sometimes.. (which never ends well). Nothing negative, but when someone is telling a long and suspenseful boring story.. I respond with “PUPPIES! How cute are they??”. Again, It never ends well!
I thought for my first post I would give a little background about myself. So here it goes:
I was born in Riverside California in 1990 and lived in Apple Valley California until I was 8. I was raised by my grandparents which I LOVE to brag about because.. lets face it. Who wouldn’t want to have endless sleepovers at Grandma and Grandpas house. Am I right?! After my grandfather retired we moved back to my grandparents home in a little 5,000 populated town called Kanab, UT. I absolutely loved growing up there. The red hills were absolutely gleaming during the morning sunrises and the red dirt was perfect for a typical ATV drive down to the creek for a swim. I participated in as many extra curricular activities in High School as they allowed me to. Sports are foreign to me. I was never coordinated when it came to catching a ball. I was tried to play tether ball in elementary school and somewhere i forgot to hit the ball and it smashed my face and i was sent home with some bruises and a bloody nose. Graceful I know.
I graduated High School and moved to St. George where I started and dropped out of College after 1 semester. I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up and wanted to play instead. I finally got my little tush moving and went back to school for Dental Hygiene. I finished my pre requisites and also received my certification in Dental Assisting and Dental Radiology. I worked as a Dental Assistant for 5 years.
I met Andy Crane in a Communications class.. (go figure). We were in a group project together and he thought he was so sneaky in getting my number. He had all of the group members write down their numbers in his notebook so that he could get a hold of us if he needed something. I knew he was just trying to get my number. We went on a few dates and sort of went separate ways. about 6 months later i moved to a new place. And that’s when the most CRAZY perfect fateful thing happened… Andy was my New Neighbor! We ended up dating steadily and became engaged and married almost 3 years ago. Andy is my best friend. We are both equally stubborn and have never been mad with on another for longer than an hour. He has always been supportive of me and anything I wanted to do.
We got pregnant a month after we were married and welcomed a baby boy into our family. I don’t think our lives have been more full of adventure since Braxton came along. He keeps us on our toes and I think I have every episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse memorized.
After Braxton came along I decided to leave my Dental job and stay home to be completely hands on with our sweet boy. He is almost 2 and is beginning to be more independent. I have had a little more time on my hands and that is why i decided to take up blogging!
I have never been great at keeping a journal, and my friends have absolutely every product out there that i could sell covered. So I thought about something that I could do that would be for me. Something that I love and am passionate about.
I am all about Crafting. Crafting is my Zoloft I swear. It completely relaxes me and I love creating the ideas that pop up into my mind. I am solely addicted to Pinterest but sometimes if I really like something on there it will take me to a place where I can buy it or it will just be the picture of the thing that I’m interested in making.
So that brings me to what this blog will entail. I wanted to share some of the projects Ive done and include how to make them. I also am going to be sharing recipes or products that Ive tried that i cant live without. For me learning about other peoples reviews on products or trying different recipes is beneficial to my family. I love being a homemaker but i have learned that it is A LOT of work and new ideas are always fun to come across so i hope this blog will be exciting for some of you moms out there
