About me

Industry Accounting
Location Los Angeles, CA, United States
Introduction I consider myself lucky to be a stay at home parent, which has given me the opportunity to learn about the world of my kids, MetaBoy (3 years) and MetaGirl (14 months). When I have a rare spare moment, I do things that interest me, thereby helping me feel normal and happy. As an accountant in my professional life, money and all related topics are a source of interest. Food has become a huge source of interest as I've become diligent in keeping my family's health a top priority, what with food recalls, shady ingredients in processed foods, and trying to go organic when possible. I love trying out new recipes, as long as they're delicious, not too fussy, and healthy. But hey, I'm interested it lots of things, so you never know when I'll go off on a here :-) Feel free to email me with any comments, questions, or anything at: metamommy at gmail dot com.
Interests Travel, cooking, baking, reading, web surfing, driving my mini, making my son laugh, hearing new music, watching new movies, learning about anything and everything, organizing my closet, getting a bargain/good deal, saving money, eating good food, wearing a scarf, going to book stores

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

OMG...Who has time to be romatic? I've got to go make dinner while balancing the clingy toddler with the death grip on my leg and the other one running amok in the living room. Pssshhhht...frozen petals. Please!!
