Stephanie

close
info:
Hello My Name is Stephanie.... I created Somewhat Simple in July of 2009 as a place to document my love of being creative. I am married to my best friend and together we are raising 4 sweet kids in sunny Arizona, USA. I love ice cream, autumn, Sunday naps, traveling, game nights and shopping. I am a bit obsessive compulsive and I love all things organized. I love reality TV, a new tube of toothpaste, a new jar of peanut butter, the scent of a new car and soft back scratches. I despise laundry more than anything else in the world! I'm also not a fan of unloading the dishwasher, Peeps marshmallow candies, mushrooms and Whoppers- those are disgusting.

Growing up in Idaho, I spent nearly all of my time outdoors. After marrying my childhood BFF and having three kids in 2 years, I lived in my pajamas and almost never left the house.

Eight years later I am almost thirty and still find myself crafting, baking, cooking and planning little parties for my family and friends!
