About CAwife

I am a newly-wed from Indiana who is adjusting to life as a wife in the California desert.

Here are the fast facts:
  • CAhusband and I have known each other since we were children, and have dated since high school.
  • I was a teacher in Indiana before moving to the unemployment capitol (well not really, but it feels like it) of the world! Currently, I'm finishing up this school year as an aid at a local private school, and am lucky enough to have my own second grade classroom there starting this coming fall! 
  • I am a horrible cook, but am learning more and more every day. I am very picky, so you'll notice my recipes contain a limited number of ingredients; including, and mainly limited to: chicken, potatoes, cheese, bread, and garlic.
  • I love to read!
  • I am a shopaholic, and my main weaknesses are JCrew and Anthropologie.
  • CAhusband and I have a 4 year old Boxer named Reilly, and another boxer puppy, Piper. We love our little girls, but they definitely keep us busy!
  • We are Purdue Boilermakers and major COLTS fans!
  • I am known to totally abuse exclamation points and smiley faces, and don't really care. These symbols are the best way I know to share my excitement about something through a computer!
  • During TV's prime, I will log more hours watching my favorites than you likely thought possible. I am a total TV junkie and you'll hear all about it.
  • I blog for me and me only, so don't expect this blog to always be politically or grammatically correct. I reserve the right to say (post) whatever I want, regardless of how ridiculous it may be.
Please join me on this journey of attempted domestication, as I ramble and rant about the things that I love.

I'm a new follower, as well as new blogger and a new wife! I'm trying to used to the domestication thing too...however, we still eat out (or order in) much more often than not!! As you can tell, I'm guilty of ! points also. :-) Nice to "meet you"!
