Please be Patient with me. I have no clue what I am doing. 🙂


I am a 40 year old mom from Texas. I grew up in a very small town and now live in the Suburbs of Houston.  Yes!!!  From a 2A school and now I have my kids going to a 5A school. It has been an experience.  when I went to their school for the first time, I felt like I was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.

Everyone says I should start a blog because I shouldn’t say all my thoughts out loud. 🙂 I am pretty blunt and I have a hard time holding the truth back when having a conversation with someone.   I also have a very dry sense of humor so my “helpful words” get taken the wrong way quite often.  There is no telling what you will see (if anyone ever even looks at this).

Everyone does all these themed blogs and I think that is cool but I am wanting to just say whats’ on my mind. I have never actually followed a blog so I hope that doesn’t put me in “blogger jail” anything.  I plan to write or post about whatever is going on in my head at the time.  That’s why I named the Blog Oh Oh Somethingshiny!  I plan on hopping from one thing to another!

I have my two girls who I am scared won’t be around too much longer.  I am married to a great man although he drives me insane! He acts like he is 50 and has done BJJ for 20 years.  Yep, he is one of “those”.  Then, I have two dogs, an English Mastiff and a Miniature Eskimo.  Hercules is 2 and Lady is 9.  Wanna guess what name belongs to which?  Betcha Can’t!!! I also  have a crazy Ex who I am sure I will bitch about from time to time.

Then there is FOOD!  I love food and I will cook ANYTHING.  I was on the cupcake trend and still like those but I also enjoy cooking different ethnic styles.  That is my favorite! I love indian food!  I will cook or at least attempt anything. My latest craze is macarons.  Yes, I have had three trial and errors.

I wish I was crafty but I am not. I love pinterest and attempt to try things on there. It ends up taking me days or weeks to do this five minute thing.  At that point, I refuse to give up and will not admit out loud that it is ugly. 🙂 Most of the time it ends up costing me crazy amounts of money as well.

I have the most boring job in the world.  I am a secretary.  I sit at a desk and smile and knod and answer 576 stupid questions a day.  Maybe they weren’t stupid the first 50 times but after having to repeat myself over and over, all of the questions are stupid.  Not by customers though. Only by employees.  Every payday Monday I get “Is this where I put my time card?”.  Yes, I do take happy pills!

I love working out.  I have jogged for 16 years.  I am not saying I could ever race anyone but I can move my legs in the running motion.  I do at least 3 miles three days a week.  But, I am not at all a health nut.  I figure I love my food so much that I have to do something to make up for all the food I eat.
