Hi! I’m Katy. My husband calls me Katy Bird which is how this blog got its name. Whenever I check out an “About” page, I’m hoping to get a feel for a blogger without having to read the entire blog. So here’s the quick and dirty:
I’m a southern girl who loves family, big meals, sweet tea, and wouldn’t be caught dead grabbing or snatching up freebies because a southern girl would rather scrimp and do without than act needy.
I am a New Orleanian, which means I love good cocktails and conversation, am irreverent as hell, and am suspicious of the Federal Government. Also, I taught most of my friends how to tip and open a tab.
I am a mother. I raise my son who has cerebral palsy. His disability has both defined and refined who I am as a person.
I am a blogger. I have been blogging since the fall of ’05 when my husband deployed to the Middle East for four months. Alone in a new city, Blogging became an outlet.
I am my own person. I love dancing, booty music, mystery novels, peanut butter, purses, shoes, decorating, and adolescent literature. Like everyone, I am a mix and a mash of so many things.
Thanks for stopping by.
