Mahogany Drive

I am a perfectionist who is far from perfect and I am always my own worst critic. I am frugal, not cheap!  I enjoy carbohydrates, staying fit and watching movies; ideally all at the same time.  Gymnastics is my favorite sport.  I'm a wanna be world traveler and author.  Just as soon as I finish that novel.

I blog about life, love, the pursuit of happiness, reality TV, home decor, money, shopping and anything else that pops into my head.  Everybody has a story and this is mine. I've been keeping journals and diaries since the age of 9.  Of course I have a blog.  I blog because I love to write. Always have, always will.
