Welcome to the Beginning

Welcome, come on in and make yourself comfortable!  My home is your home. Well so to speak…(Unless you want to help with the mortgage? no?  Are you sure? Ha, ha!)

Have you ever wanted in on the ground floor of something?  You know, been the first to hear of something?  Wished you had bought Microsoft stock at the beginning?  Well ladies and gents, this is your lucky day!  You have arrived at the beginning of something and I mean AT THE VERY BEGINNING.  The very first, EVAH!  After much thought, anxiety, searching, research, obsessing over Pinterest… (you get the idea) I have jumped into the great unknown of Blogging!  And you were there (here ?) to witness the launch!  (Or you are witnessing the launch by checking out earlier posts of said blog.)

I am not like many other bloggers you can find out there.  Trust me.  I am completely technologically challenged.  As in I get completely glassy-eyed when my Hubby starts telling me about gigabytes and such.  (I am still not sure what those giga things are!) I also do not have sweet babies that I am chasing around while I decorate our new “Dream Home”.  Nope.  My babies are a very tall and handsome 14 year old teenage boy and a sweet and beautiful 9 year old girl.

And my “Dream Home”?  Is our “starter home”.  Our “we will live here for 5 to 7 years and then buy our Dream Home”, and yet, we have lived here for over 10 years.  Thank you crazy housing market of the New Millennium!   I believe our starter home has become our “Forever Home”.  Keep in mind that my Forever Home is an astounding 1,176 square feet.  Yes, you read that correctly.  My home is less than 1,200 square feet!  However, we do have a large lot of 7,000 square feet. What?  Do I hear laughter out there?  That’s right!  I forgot, many of you live in other parts of the state/country/world (I can dream I am reaching that far away, right?) and you probably have oodles amount of acreage.  Well, I live in sunny So. California in what is known as “Surf City, USA”.  (Really it is just named Huntington Beach, but our Tourist office wants to draw in LOTS of tourists!)  While 1176 sq. ft. for a house is small even here, a 7,000 sq. ft. lot is pretty “big” for our little beach town.

I am also unlike many other new bloggers out there because I am actually already a bit of a local celebrity. I have been featured on Radio Disney, ABC news Channel 7, OCN, and I have the distinction of already making the pages of the… wait for it… (Thank you Barney Stinson for that) National Enquirer! Oh yea!  I have already MADE IT BIG TIME! Are you wondering how does a “regular Wife and Mom make the pages of this illustrious magazine?  “Was she kidnapped by aliens?”, “Did she discover Big Foot really does exist?”  Have I peeked your curiosity?

Come back and visit me again and I will fill you in on the VERY juicy details!

Oh yea, I just posted my first blog and ended with a CLIFFHANGER!  How very Dallas of me, right?

  18. Carol Casey says:

    Hi Wendy! Congrats on your new project. It’s really cute and am sure you will be very successful. I haven’t read about the “Cliff Hanger” yet. Here’s my guess–could it have something to do with a bicycle? That used to belong to me? Can hardly wait to read the next blog and see if I’m right.
    Wishing you much success,
    Carol Ferguson-Casey
