Hello from Olive Oyl Momma!
My “real” name is Kara; I’m a Texas gal born and raised. In case you were wondering, I earned the Olive Oyl nickname in 5th grade. Well let me clarify: I was coined Olive Oyl because of my dark brown hair, super skinny physique and giant feet and ridiculously gangly arms and legs. It was an annoyance at first, but later in life I embraced it!
I have always loved to write. During the course of this blog (that I hope lasts a very long time), I want to actively engage with you, the readers. I’ll be sharing personal, humorous mother/parenthood stories, real-life tragedies and triumphs and the occasional book/tv show/movie review as I see it. I would love to hear from you! Good or bad, I appreciate constructive criticism. Like something that I post? Let me know!
Any graphics that are shared in my posts are my own personal pictures or have been found on Google Images.
Now a bit about me….
On any given day you’ll find me in a fuzzy pink bathrobe with not yet brushed hair or possibly teeth, chugging coffee and being domestic. If I’m not running after my kids, cleaning or cooking, you can find me writing or my nose buried in a book.
I love to bake! And when my sweet tooth hits no matter the time of day, I’ll whip something up and throw it in the oven.
I also enjoy up cycling old things. Specifically wooden side tables and picture frames. Painted wood is where it’s at!
I’m married and the proud yet tired mom of two incredible boys. I have a lot of tattoos, drop the F bomb quite a bit, and may or may not be nap obsessed if time allows.
Any questions? Feel free to drop me a message!
