Number of Children – 1 boy, Jackson, 17 months old
Favorite foods – Definitely Italian food, but I will try anything (once!)
3 Things I am looking forward to this year – The Holidays, Two new additions to the Bates family (Kate and Megan’s babies), Hawkeye National Championship (Okay..Jason put me up to this one, but hey it would be awesome)
Favorite season – Winter. I love all of the seasons and I am always ready for the next one but there is something I love about a snowy day where you can cuddle up inside.
Favorite place to find new recipes -All Recipes, friends and family, other blogs
Food I haven’t tried, but want to -Thai
Favorite restaurant – Bravo Italian Restaurant
Recipes: Messy or Organized – Messy. I know my system but if anyone else tried to find anything, good luck. I have a photographic memory so I always remember what the piece of paper looked like that the recipe is on. I just have a stack of papers mainly. I am going to find a system one of these days and I will be sure to share it with everyone!
Favorite thing about my chaos – That it is always changing. Jack is always doing something new and different but I love that no day is the same. We love to entertain so we are always surrounded by friends and family. And although entertaining can be exhausting it is always worth it!
Favorite holiday – Christmas time (December is a big month for me…anniversary, birthday and Christmas)
