Back for Seconds

Unveiling the Mystery: Meet the Person Behind Back For Seconds

First of all, let me start by saying that I have received so many messages and emails from sweet readers wanting to know about the person behind Back For Seconds. This post is for you!

Honestly, when I first started this blog I wanted to be anonymous. No one knew my name or anything about me, and I was happy with that.

I wanted Back For Seconds to be a place all about yummy recipes, so why put myself out there when you come for the food?

Besides…what if you didn’t like me?? Eeek! After a while I realized that in order to connect with people over the internet I  would have to open up and share a bit about myself.

When you visit me here, I want you to feel like you’re visiting a friend – as well as getting a tasty recipe!  So today is the day, folks. I really wasn’t sure what to share, so it’s just a lot of random things about me. Maybe we are a lot alike?

About Me @ Back For Seconds


1. I believe in miracles.

2. I am addicted to all things sparkly.

3. I can’t make a decision to save my life.

4. My hair color is constantly changing (see #3).

5. I am shy, compassionate, and slightly disorganized.

6. I love fashion.

7. Chocolate, gooey, and fudgy desserts get the thumbs up from me.

8. I never use recipes or measure ingredients. This blog forces me to keep track of such things ;)

9. I feel naked without jewelry.

10. I like shopping a little too much.

11. I love cooking/baking with my little girl.

12. I love being a mom and I try to soak up every second I have with my babies.

13. I love taking pictures and the photographs of my family are among my most treasured possessions.

14. I get totally giddy (and still get butterflies) on dates with my husband.

15. I like to overdose on accessories.

16. I am a hairstylist.

17. I design, create, and sell jewelry (found here).

18. I don’t believe there is a greater sound than baby giggles. When all 3 of my littles are giggling together it totally melts me.

19. I have naturally curly hair.

20. Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite flavor combo.

Let’s get personal:

* I am married to the coolest guy ever. We got engaged at 20, and after 8 years of marriage we are still crazy about each other.

* I am a Christian. I don’t do everything right. I make mistakes. I don’t deserve God’s grace but thankfully, He gives it freely anyway.

* I am mama to nine babies. Six are in the arms of Jesus and I miss them everyday. Our daughter and twin baby boys give us immeasurable joy and they are proof that miracles happen.

* As much as I would like to, I can’t please everyone, but if I am honoring the Lord, that’s all that really matters.

And lastly, a confession:

More often than not, I eat cookies for breakfast!

Thanks a million for visiting Back For Seconds and taking the time to get to know me a bit. I want to get to know you too and I love getting comments and emails from you!

    Thanks for sharing yourself. I need to do the same thing on my blog, but am a bit shy. :)

  13. I know I read this a little while back on your ‘about’ page and I love learning more about other bloggers! I feel like I need a person like you in my life that knows something about style!

    Plus, being a hairdresser with curly hair, you’d be able to help me with my mop.

    I only have one daughter, but am the second oldest of 14 kids!

  17. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this outstanding blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  18. Tim says:

    Awesome! Your blog is so overwhelmingly girly that I have trouble looking at it at work… but then I just tell people about my cool sister and her fabulous blog, so it works out well. :)

  19. I just love getting to know friends better:) You are just beautiful (inside and out:)

    Hope your week is filled with Blessings!

  20. good move…I started off the same way – in hiding. But people want to know about others (we’re all a little nosy), including myself! Thanks for sharing with us!

  21. terry says:

  22. Such a wonderful post! I loved reading more about you and your picture is GORGEOUS!

  23. Hairdressers are supposed to always have glamorous hair, so it’s ok if you keep changing it up. BTW – You look gorgeous!

  24. Lisa says:

    At the risk of sounding like an internet creepster, you are gorgeous. How are you a baking blogger and not a super model. Also, I must say again that I hate belonging to the mourning mothers club, but I’m glad to have other moms like you there with me.

  25. Hey Pretty Girl!! When I saw your picture on Instagram, I thought in my head, she looks like a hair stylist. All the ones I know are always looking awesome & put together. I’m happy to learn more about you!! XOXO! Meghan
