Welcome!

Hello! I’m Michelle Oliver. This is my first blog post ever, so thanks for reading! Let’s get to know each other. I’m originally a Texas girl, now living in New Mexico with my fabulous husband, Troy. We are just shy of our 3rd anniversary…No kids 😊

This is from our trip to Chicago this summer. Ain't he cute?

Troy has been a prosecutor for the last 3 years and recently became a civil attorney. He’s got his passion nailed down and he’s darn good at it. Me, on the other hand, I’m still figuring it out.

I have a degree in Family Studies from Abilene Christian University, which I am not using. Turns out, social work is really hard. I am a receptionist at a dental office (my dentist is bomb, btw) and when I’m not at work, I spend the rest of my time on all the fun stuff.

I’m on Pinterest, like, ALL THE TIME thinking of new projects, finding new recipes, figuring out ways to save money, etcetera, etcetera. I’m currently re-decorating our home. On a budget. One small project at a time. I’ll post some of those projects later. I love decorating, party planning and I’m always trying new recipes…Lord, bless my husband. We’ve had some epic dinner fails in our time together which end with me near tears and him choking down a dinner that resembles the taste of cardboard, but he always does it with a smile. He says it’s good, but I’m eating it, too. I know it’s gross. Don’t worry. I’ll only share recipes we enjoyed. I might still rant about my dinner fails, though. Fair warning.

I’m pretty clumsy and disorganized, so none of the aforementioned hobbies come particularly easily to me. I’m here, representing those who want to, but don’t know how. Let’s just try anyway! We can figure it out together!
