About

I am a wife and mother to 3 year old and 15 year old boys. We have a cat that we rescued about 5 years ago. My husband and I had both been married (and of course divorced) once before we met one another. I can’t say that my first marriage was a mistake because I believe that everything that happens in our lives is a piece of the puzzle that makes up who we are. I like saving money and I do put effort into it, though I would not consider myself an extreme couponer. We are not rich by any means but we both work to make sure that we have what we need and by saving money where I can we have more extra money to do little things that we would like. We both LOVE to travel and see new places and luckily so do our children. I chose to title my blog Life’s Scenic Route because that is how it often feels. We did not take the easiest route going to college right out of high school; instead we finished our bachelor degrees in our 30s. We have both made mistakes in life, like many people, and we just take life as it comes and try to enjoy things as much as we can. I have commented many times when on a road trip or just trying a new place that we are just taking the scenic route so it just seems fitting since it comes to mind so often. I am using the name Snack Lady because with a husband and two kids I feel like I am always making sure everyone has a drink and snack. Not that that is a bad thing, I don’t see the title as a bad thing at all. Well I guess that is enough about who I am for now.
