About

Here’s a little info about me….

Who am I?

My name is Brook, without the “e”. My mom thought she’d be orginal.

Is your hair real?

Nope, sorry to disappoint. I’ve been dying my hair for over 20 years, so I feel like I’ve earned the title of “redhead” and my son is a true redhead. So I think that all counts for something.

Where do you call home?

My family and I live in Iowa City, Iowa home to the University of Iowa and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Are you married? Do you have kids?

Yep, I met my true love B2 on Yahoo! personals and my boys G (2010) and E (2007) —- Since this is my blog I won’t divulge their names until they tell me otherwise.

What do you do other than blog?

Well, I’d like to say my days consist of lounging around, but we are a busy family. I work full-time in marketing for a retirement community and B2 does web design for the local University and runs his own webdesign business.

When we finally find time to spend as a family we like to go to Hawkeye football games, play outside and just generally hangout.

I also enjoy knitting, writing, reading, training for triathlons and kickboxing.

Why a blog?

I started a blog for E when he was born, but I haven’t been keeping up, and I wanted to add my own spin. So, I decided to just do my own thing and sprinkle the boys and B2 in here and there.

And the biggest reason I owe to my “family” at the retirement community. When you are surrounded by seniors everyday you realize just how short life is and how you may forget things…so this will be my memory of those fun, funky and freaky moments of my life. Hopefully you will get a laugh or two out of it.

Here’s a little more insight into who I am and what makes me … me.
