All About Me Post

Hi Ya'll!  In celebration for Funky Junk Interiors 3000 Followers post!  
Here's a little about Me.

I first have to say, I'm finding this task difficult to do, but I really want to help celebrate such a tremendous accomplishment! Whoo-Hooo!

Who I am
My name is Jenny or Jen, although I was born with the name Jennifer, but please don't call me that, only if I'm in trouble.  And I don't like to be in trouble.  Even the name "Hey You" works well for me!  I'm a recent Blogaholic.  I'm truly addicted to Funky Junk's adventures and many others!

I am a Mama to 4 children.  3 boys and a girl.  The oldest just turned 14 today! And the other three are 5 and under.  My littlest is a total Girly Girl and I'm hoping that she will teach me how to be more like one! 
(my comfort zone = jeans and cotton t-shirts)  
I'm not going to lie, finding the energy to keep up with them and being consistent in their life training is proving to be a HUGE task for me.  

The name Blueberry Jambalaya Fairy came from my kids.  Jambalaya is cooked weekly in this house and everyone is a fan.  Blueberries are a sheer pleasure to eat and we can never have enough of them!  The Fairy part comes from "Miss Bubbles", (as I fondly call her), my little girl.  She walks on her toes!  

I have a wonderful Husband who supports me and my crazy ideas.  Although He still ask the question, "and why did you bring this into the house".   

What I like
I simply adore taking photos of my Little Blessings.  They crack me up and make life worthwhile.  I like to dabble in anything I can get my hands on, photography, painting, sewing, baking, and finding cheaper ways to get what I want.  I get super excited about recycling old or unwanted items into useful items.  I'm a firm believer that a quilt should be used and not hanged and Laughter IS The Best Medicine.  

Where I live

I live in sunny California.  Born here, but not raised.  I consider myself a Southerner, being raised in Louisiana and Virginia.  I had quite an unusual accent for a super long time.  (Cajun/Southern Bell = Cajun Bell) 

Things that I enjoy in Ca. 
Walking in my backyard and picking fruit right off the trees.

Living in the valley, I love the cool wind in my hair.

Escaping to the beach for the weekend.

Climbing up to the Mountains for some snow.

My Special place is just at home with my Family.

Happy 3000 Followers Funky Junk! And thank you for a super fun post idea!

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me!


  1. Nice to meet you Jenny! What a lovely family! I can see why you adore photographing them. :)

    I'm honored you'd put yourself out there for this celebration. But I'm so glad you did. I wish I could read all 3000 + profiles of those that visit here. Sometimes blogworld is so quiet and this is a very nice way to hear abit more.

    Thanks so much for linking up!


  2. Nice to get to know you. Donna had a great idea, didn't she?
    I didn't link in as my computer is having attitude, but I'll be playing (in a msall way) next week.
