First Post

Well, I suspect the title says it all really.  This is the first post in my new blog!  I have been using LiveJournal for many years, but I find it lacking in a couple of departments so I've decided to give Blogger a go.  A couple of very wise family members turned BLOG into an acronym.  I think it basically says it all!

Brag Loud & Often but Graciously

Livejournal seems like more of... well, a journal.  With this blog I plan on bragging myself up so the rest of the world knows how truly awesome I really am (uh, maybe the graciously part will go out of the window with this).

So now, a little info for those of you who don't already know me!  I'm a 26 year old girl from Utah who fell for a Dutchman, got married, and moved across the sea.  Right now I'm trying to learn Dutch and do my integration exams.  After being here for 3 years and finishing my integration exams, I will qualify for Dutch citizenship, which I plan on getting so that I can VOTE.  Since I'm married to a Dutchie, I won't have to surrender my American passport. 

I really like to make stuff.  People ask me what I like to make and my answer usually is... well, a little bit of everything.  This doesn't mean I'm actually -good- at everything but I certainly would LIKE to be eventually.  My mom tells me I'll be as good of a seamstress as her after I've had as much practice.  I don't want to wait that long, but I suspect she's right.  Because I'm evil, when she complains about not being able to type very fast or do things with the computer I will respond with "When you've been doing it as long as I have..." 

Since I'm a stay at home and make messes wife, I've had time to experiment with cooking which I'm actually starting to enjoy a little more.  This doesn't mean that I have given up on frozen pizzas though!  I participate in a menu planning meme that I plan on posting here too.

I suspect that this is getting a little wordy and about 93% of my readers have fallen asleep by the 2nd paragraph, so I'll wrap it up.  I love getting comments and hope to meet some new people in this endeavour.  Cheers!
