{Lunatic Behind the Blog}

Hi there. 

Don't you just hate being the new kid?

It's okay, you can sit by me. I'll go first.  I am Michelle.  I'm a genius.  Mostly.  OK, not really.

My family and I live in Ohio.  I am a blogger, know my way around social media strategy, and I am home with my two children.  None of which are something I ever thought I would do.  I have a degree in International Business, worked for a Fortune 500 company, and speak a whole lot of French.  I'm a little lot surprised at how much I love being home.

In addition to child wrangling, running a household and this blog, I spend my days dreaming up new ways to make my too-good-to-be-true husband, crazy.  Dave looks good in a suit, makes me laugh like crazy, and doesn't even blink when I fill our cart at IKEA with 35 packs of 'fun' napkins.  He knows I'll use them and is usually wondering what I'm going to rope him into doing next.  I'm pretty sure the universe made sure we were together despite me trying to introduce him to my sister.  He's pretty awesome, except the fact that he's a Libertarian.

We can't all be perfect.

This is us.  And I am {probably} not naked in this picture.

Finnegan is my son who is seven, he's obsessed with Marvel superheros, Legos, and reading anything he can get his hands on.  He says some ridiculously funny things that I post as Finnisms.  Baby numero dos is Tate, our feisty, crayon, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and My Little Pony obsessed baby girl, who is almost three.  After months and months of infertility treatments, she's the last baby in our house.

One boy.  One girl.  Aaaaand done.  Unless I can talk the Davester into another one, which he says, I can not.

So, you want to know what you will find when you hang out here?

So Wonderful, So Marvelous is a family lifestyle blog.  I am here, who I am in my life.  Honest.  Amusing in some circles.  Party thrower.  User of real butter.  Caffeine fueled.  And the world's worst housekeeper.  Just ask my mom, she'll tell you.  I post usable {Pinterest-y} information like recipes, entertaining, and home related posts and I also write about motherhood and marriage.

Some favorite posts:

So Wonderful, So Marvelous has been featured several times on One Pretty Thing, also on Apartment TherapyStyle Lush, Be Different, Act Normal, Birthday Girl, Somewhat Simple, BlogHer,  Tatertots & Jello, 504 Main's Tickled Pink, Living Locurto, Operation NICE, Lodi California News 10 & Just A Girl.  I was listed on Momdot's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2009.  Plus?  2013 BlogHer Voices of the Year Honoree.  That one made me cry. Then it happened again in 2014.
