Hi, I'm Jenn.
 Welcome to my blog!

The Down & Dirty

I'm a little bit quirky/a little bit awkward. A wife, mom and EMT finishing my prerequisites for nursing school. Sometimes a runner (it's a love/hate relationship.) Lover of good pretty much all the wine, bad reality TV and the great outdoors. Hoarder of shoes and lip glosses.    A book nerd. A procrastinator (I work better under pressure!) I swear too much.  I'm a Niners fan (Those last two may be related.)  I have an unhealthy obsession with cereal. Seriously...can't even have it in the house. Music and coffee get me through just about anything life throws my way.

These are the two people who get me out of bed every morning (literally and figuratively, lol):

I'm sure you've heard the story before: boy meets girl (at a bar), she starts dating (his friend) and then somehow boy and girl end up together, buy a house, get married, start a family. That's the gist, but it's really all the little things that happen in between the big moments that make life interesting, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Love your blog, so glad I stumbled on it! I'm also a "sometimes runner" - newest follower here :)

  3. Whoo hoo! Can't wait to read more! My husband is a fireman and we met at a Jimmy Buffett concert which is basically a bar, with live music. And yay for being "sometimes" runners. Just being a plain ol' runner is too much of a title for me to commit to.


  4. I love that you're an EMT!! And I read your post on it and loved that as well!!! I'm really excited to follow you now :D

    1. You are so sweet! That means a lot, especially coming from someone whose writing I really admire :-)


Your lovely comments make my day!
