About Me


So I'm guessing you clicked my about me page expecting me to tell you all about how wonderful my life is and how perfect I claim to be, right? Oh, what's that you say? You DON'T want to hear that B.S.?! Well, fine. Allow me to introduce myself with minimal edits or filters. First of all, if you didn't catch my name above, I'm Audrey-friends call me Aud Dog (okay, so that's a lie, but I'm trying to make it a thing). While you will see me trying to play "the cool girl" in my IG shots, I am truly anything but. Stick around awhile and you'll see what I mean. 

Oh, and that dashing, young gent pictured next to my mean mug? That's the husband, Erik. He's my college sweetheart and best friend. We met in 2011. Three months later he peaced out of Michigan and headed to Iowa where he would spend the next three-and-a-half-years studying chiropractic. Eight months after meeting, we were engaged-I let it slip that I thought he was "the one" to some random lady on a beach somewhere in Mexico (more on that, here); he overheard, and long story short, it kind of stuck. After about two years LD, I moved out to Iowa to complete my student teaching and to be with him. Two short months later, in 2014, we were hitched! 


Both Erik and I are born and raised Michiganders, which, of course, comes with a few assumptions of its own. First, like any good Mittenite (look at a map...you'll understand), we love craft brews, the Detroit Lions, and the great outdoors. During the summer months, we spend less time sleeping in our own beds than we do under the stars. Second, (don't hate us) we love our guns. All kinds of them. Get us to an outdoor range and we've got ourselves a date night! Interestingly enough, I also happen to be a pro-hunting, vegetarian fisherwomen (cue Alanis Morissette's "Ironic"). Last thing, we also call ourselves Christians; we try, fail and try continually to live up to that title. 

A wee bit more on me: I'm actually an outstanding rapper, and I swear I drive better when I've been drinking (coffee). Drunk driving actually gets my blood boiling. Another tidbit-in high school, my P.E. nickname was "the beast". I'm a huge political junkie, kind of PC (see motto), and believe that everyone and everything deserves the right to live a life of freedom, happiness, and some damn equality! Also, I truly love human beings and take it personally when anyone is hurting.

Motto: "We'd all get along a whole lot better if everyone was just a little bit less of an asshole."

A little more on Erik: He's a city boy, gone country, he is a closet bookworm, he cooks like a champ, he can dance like it's nobody's business, and has a stash of dollar bills in his truck for any and all homeless and/or needy humans. And that, folks, is why I'd love him even if he wasn't so handsome!

Notable Quote: "I'm hood in my own right"

Oh, and these little sweethearts? United, we call them "fur monsters." Divided, they go by (Boo) Radley and Calvin (Johnson). 

Further Elabo: Radley, born in 2014, is an American Bulldog/Boxer mix from the 'hood of Chicago. He enjoys chasing the ever elusive tail, chewing Mom's shoes (the newer the better), and sniffing any and all flavors of eos lip balm. Calvin, born in 2013, is a purebred Boxer from somewhere in Illinois. His favorite pastimes include sneezing all over his parents' pretty walls, pinning down other dogs at the park to embarrass said parents, and aggressively retrieving "the ball." Just darling. We keep them around for their snuggling abilities.
