Show and Tell Tuesdays (of course I'm late)

Linking up with Andrea for a weekly Show and Tell series. This Tuesday's topic are intros and resolutions. I've done intros before and my resolutions but hey, let's do this again. I know, you care soooooo much.

The basics: My name is Teri. I'm 31. I'm married to my husband of 3 years, together for 12 years. We have two children, Olivia (2 and a half) and Liam (he'll be 1 in two and a half weeks) and a cocker spaniel named Biscuit. 

Born and raised in Minnesota and lived within the same 10 mile radius throughout any of my moves. 

Rich and I love travel so much so that it's part of our business. We work May through October at various state fairs, festivals, and events throughout the US selling corn dogs. Yep, we're carnies. With all our teeth (Liam excluded). We pack up our 5th wheel and travel the states selling the item Rich's Grandfather came up with 60+ years ago. 

Recap on this past summer here (where I shook Donald Trump's hand!) 

It's tough but it's so fun. I mean, my workplace is at the fair! More on that in the 'about me' tab on the home page. 

When I'm not working our fair business I'm running my two businesses, a flip book photo booth company, and my Etsy shop. 

And in my OTHER spare time when I'm not running businesses, working, marketing, momming, etc. I'll be headed back to school this winter to finish what I started years ago. Not too much detail but lots of biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology to recap and advance in. I'm not sure if I'll ever finish but I'll kick myself if I don't at least try again. 
I guess this counts as one of my resolutions.

I started this blog when I was pregnant with Olivia and HATE the name of it. "What's with the name" tab explains how it got its name. 

I love outlet malls, iced coffee, my mini van, throwing over the top parties, Mondays and mornings. I know, get your pitchforks ready but Monday mornings are my ultimate favorite. 

That's all! Happy Tuesday Wednesday! 


  1. OMG I love your blog too! So glad you commented and led me to here. I'm following asap!

    BTW- I can't believe youre an actual carnie!

    1. I sure am. I have all my teeth and I don't chew tobacco so we come in all different forms haha

  2. The name of your blog is what drove me to read it... I was like "THIS girl knows what's up in motherhood!!!" and I can't believe you are a Carnie!!! how freaking cool!!!!

    1. Hah! I'm not changing the name because 1. That's what people say drove them here and 2. Don't know how/don't have the time.
      I am totally a carnie. My workplace is on the fairgrounds and my "lunch break" includes going on rides with my kids and ending the night with my husband on the midway having a beer or two
