I'm Kimmie Ess.
The above photo was taken the one and only time that my hair did what I wanted it to do.
If you ever hear my name or "Sugar and Dots", I want you to envision the above photo.
Do not picture this photo:
That's what I look like 99.9% of the time.
Too lazy to put on a bra.
This little blog started in January of 2010, and for the first year, I had about 200 readers.
I didn't network and pretty much had zero idea what blogging was all about.
From 2011 to today, I have found my voice and have decided to blog from my heart- whether that makes me popular or hated- my words are straight from my soul.
Most of the time my words are sarcastic.
And always typed out as I think; in sentence fragments.
If you ever meet me in person, my words are usually similar to that of a sailor, and I quote lyrics like it's my job.
The best part?
I listen to vulgar rap.
People usually assume that I am confident because I stand tall and have zero volume control.
It's actually the opposite- I'm just a tall person.
And I'm just loud- I never mean to draw attention to myself.
If you ever see a tall blonde rapping in public loudly... look away.
Nothing to see here.
I'm a sensitive mama.
My heart has been broken.
I have been blessed with three beautiful children.

And you can read just how emo I am about parenting HERE.
See those pants?
Proof that I shop at Target.
Addicted to that store, really.
One day I decided to write an entire post about that store.
No, I'm not kidding.
You can read that post HERE.
My husband is my whole world.
We have been through more struggles together than the average couple, and he makes me a better person.
Which is hard to admit to because he met me at the peak of my awesomeness.
19 years old and debt free.
Oh yeah... and I like elephants.
A lot a lot a lot.
I jump on the bed with my kids.
I bend the rules.
I am a babywearing, baby lead weaning, cloth diapering, Jesus loving, thrift store shopping, craft making 29-year-old who basks in the Southern California sun.
Also, I don't ever want to turn 30.
I am so happy to see some new faces around here, and hope that a little intro helps break the ice!
And I know this post doesn't prove a whole lot, but I do in fact know how to smile.
Showing my teeth and everything.
Don't break up with me just yet- I promise I'm not as crazy as I sound.
PS. Sometimes I break promises.
