Who’s Who

For those who can’t keep up with the weird nicknames, family members and significant other talk, this page is for you.

You’re welcome.

Here’s some frequently seen and often mentioned faces.

My mom.

She’s the one who’s not me on the right.

Things you should know:

  • She’s a born and raised New Orleanian and can peel crawfish like the best of them.
  • She’s a certified massage therapist, hence me talking about my mom giving me massages all the time. Jealous?
  • Although she’s totally modest about it, I happen to think my mom is a fabulous cook.
  • We’re incredibly close.
  • She’s perfect.

My dad.


Things you should know:

  • My dad is also a certified massage therapist. I know, now you’re extra jealous.
  • Infamously late all.the.time.
  • Incredibly funny. I like to think I got some of my humor from my dad. I know I got my hunger-induced irritability from him.
  • Has way more fashion sense than I’ll ever have. Not cool, Dad. Not cool.

My sister.

  • Beanie
  • Little Bear

Real name:

  • Colleen. But don’t expect me to ever call her that. Really. None of us do.

Things you should know:

  • I love my sister. Seriously. We may not have gotten along when we were younger but now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve come to realize she’s my best friend 🙂
  • Despite the fact that she’s about at least 5 inches taller than me, she is 2 and half years my junior.
  • She has fabulous hair. Now we can all feel jealous.
  • She’s not so big into my picture taking, so don’t expect to see too much of her. But you’ll often hear about her.

My husband.

Aka Joey.

Aka my better, more optimistic, beer-loving, ice cream-adoring half.

Things you should know:

  • Joey and I have been together for 8 years, got married last September and live in a cute little house in Denver together.
  • Loves: running, sports in general, beer and filling our DVR with shows that are not good.
  • Fact: I’m not worthy of such an awesome guy. I like to give him a hard time, but I adore him.

My brother and Co.


Aka Gabe, Nikki, Gennaro and Belle. My brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece, respectively.

Never a dull moment with this gang 🙂


This dog is such a character.

Things you should know:

  • Commonly referred to as “Bun” by my mom and sister. As in Huni “Bun”ny.
  • Loves: chewing on things you don’t want chewed on, taking napping breaks while on a walk, sprinting short distances before needing a napping break.


As in Andouille sausage.   A little friend for Huni.  And also, I obnoxious barker.

So there you have it.

If ever I write a post about “G” or “Beanie” or “Bun,” you’ll know who I’m talking about.

Props to me for resisting all urges to post the most embarrassing pictures I could find of all the individuals above.
