I'm Lizy B.
I'm Mommy to my 5 year old son, Jack,
Mom to my 11 year old son Ethan,
and Honey to my husband, Joe B.
I'm a baker (gosh that sounds official), not formally trained. I worked at an upscale kitchen store for years and years and loved every minute. I learned so much working with wonderful bakers and cooks while I was there.
Somewhere around the age of 11 or 12, I started checking out the Wilton Cake Decorating books from the library and became obsessed. All those cakes were just so pretty! I had to know how to do that! Then Martha Stewart showed up on the scene and I couldn't get enough. I've spent time decorating cakes and working with chocolate, but cookies are my favorite. You can have just a bite, they're easy to share with friends, and they're pretty!
I'm an interior designer, that's what I went to school to do, although I've never done that professionally.
I found that my favorite part of designing was helping someone to achieve their vision of what a space could be. That turned out to only be 10 percent of the job. The rest was contractors, phone calls and yelling at people who don't show up....not great. I still love design. Visiting model homes, magazines, blogs, showrooms, HGTV, even Home Depot...all great fun! But I save the actual design for my own home.
I'm a drill sergeant. (okay, not really, but aren't all mom's drill sergeants?)
I'm a techie nerd. Yes, it's true. Not that I'm great at it. I curse at the computer just as much as the next person. I just happen to look at my computer as the worlds largest and best craft tool, and instruction manual, and travel guide, and reference book....I could go on and on...
I'm a bookworm. Having a bad day? Go to the book store. Really, really bad day? Go find the cookie cook books! If I'm not baking or decorating a cookie...I probably have my head in a book.
I'm, apparently, a blogger!
Thanks for stopping by!
