About me

Why is "Do that." the name of the blog?
A few years ago my husband and I had the pleasure of spending an entire summer "playing" with some good friends. It was before our first child was born so we had plenty of time to play golf, go driving, eat out, have wine tasting parties, play video games, watch movies, you name it! Whenever one of us felt like doing something, the rest of us would say, "do that!" It's that simple. If you want to do something, you don't have to think about why you're NOT doing it. The first step: think about HOW you're going to do that thing.

My background is in fine art, graphic design and a bit of the corporate world. Friends and family members ask me how and why I do things, so here it is! Reasons to dig deeper, try new things, and continue to improve on things we've accomplished as a family.

The following is the opening blog post that gives a little more about why I started to write "Do that."  I hope you enjoy the blog. Please leave comments and keep coming back!

The Beginning

For those of you that know me, you understand that I am quite frugal. Oh yes, and I have a nagging desire to live a do-it-yourself type of life. What I've figured out along the way is that in order to do something yourself you have to either know how or learn how (duhhh). Trial and error always make for great stories, so sometimes I take on a project without any know-how – or learning for that matter. Did I mention that another favorite pastime is storytelling that may cause embarrassment to myself but bring MUCH laughter and guffawing?

So, back to the main course here... My earnest endeavor to acquire good food for my family, a great environment at home and healthy habits brings me to this blog. Unfinished projects and certain food preferences fuel this particular endeavor – as a supplement to days that I'm engrossed in list-making, researching on the internet, visiting stores, browsing farmers markets and scouring magazines for resources! Here we go folks. Grab your coffee or beverage of choice... and let's talk about how to "Do that." One blog at a time!
