I’m a 29 year old recently divorced, career woman, aunt, and wannabe mother. I was married to my former spouse for eight years before we divorced but we've managed to stay really good friends. To read more about that click here.
I graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Utah and now I am a Senior Accountant and recently turned supervisor for a gold mining company. I love my job. I decided to go back to school to get my master's degree in accounting. I'm loving school and hating the homework :o)
I got my lovely nickname from the former spouse, he calls me Grand Pooba (among other things) which is where the name of my blog derived. I recently moved into a townhouse in Salt Lake City with my two cats. Yep, I am officially the cat lady.
Who am I? I am a very sarcastic, laid back blonde who loves to eat cereal and take naps. I get excited over the little things and think worrying is a waste of time. I hate shopping, I’d rather gouge my eyes out then step foot in a mall. I am way too trusting in people, yes I'm a sucker. For everything.
I'm a recovering Mormon. I grew up in an LDS home and was completely devoted to my religion, that is until I finally started thinking for myself and realized I didn't believe in the foundation of the church and it's beliefs. I have my own opinions and beliefs and by removing my name from the church's records I found "ME" in the process. Most of my family is still Mormon and I'm sure they think I'm going to hell, but they love me anyway!
Interests of mine are reading, baking, playing the piano, ballet, dancing, wine, and I'm a huge fan of movies. I occasionally go snow skiing, I love boating and wake boarding whenever I get the opportunity, and my favorite thing to do, besides sleeping, is laying out in the sun and reading a book. I’m a big kid when it comes to having fun and as I start this new chapter in my life I've decided to make the best of it and just enjoy being single and living on my own.
Okay, it's past midnight and I'm starving. Cake for a midnight snack is pretty healthy right? I mean, we all need a few carbs to keep our energy up. Plus I'm sure there's some protein and dairy in there somewhere.
