One of my dear friends (Hi Melissa!) has been urging me to start a blog for some time. I do have a locked down livejournal, but that isn't quite the same thing. My husband has a blog in the works, so I should be a good example to him and do this as well.

A little about me. I'm SarahBeth (don't call me Sarah unless Lady is attached ^_~)I'm 30 years old, a first time mother to a little girl. She's 14 months old and the light of my life. My husband Pat and I have been married for 6 years and together for almost 12. We have a small house in a tiny village in Upstate New York, and a cat. We're a pretty average family, he's a jr/sr. high music teacher and I'm a lab technician at a nearby university.

We're on the geeky side of the spectrum but we don't let that consume our lives. I'm obsessed with Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes, good wine/wine tasting, am interested in the ABJD hobby, and play Dungeons and Dragons with my husband and our friends. I have a crazy group of friends from college whom I adore (and sometimes want to strangle) called the E-group, and some of my dearest friends I have met on the internet. I love acting and all things theatre (yay stage combat) I am a costumer for a local high school (maybe soon to be 2), and also teach an occasional workshop.

I tend to write in a pretty stream of consciousness manner so I'm sure my posts won't always read well. I hate editing, so I tend to just type and leave things as they are. This is one of the reasons I've hesitated to blog before now, I know my posts will never be polished and pretty to read. Despite the best efforts of my English major friends, a writer I am not. I love commas (especially the Oxford one), long sentences, parenthesis where I should use foot notes, and the word "also". I can't promise that this will be a regular thing or that I won't lose interest in it in a month. I'm also a bzzagent so I may occasionally do a product review in here, but I promise it will always be my honest opinion, and I'll try to keep it relevant. I also promise to change this layout as soon as I find the time. :)
