Hi, I’m Sarah. Yes – Sarah, not Zarah. But I do sometimes use Zarah as my superhero/alter ago/blogger/commenter/twitter name.
I am a municipal attorney by day; I spend the rest of my time as a wife, mama, friend, sister, runner, newbie weightlifter, knitter, reader, United Methodist, Project Life scrapbooker, black-thumb gardener, terrible but enthusiastic dancer, and healthy/hippie cook and baker. I have been married to Matt, my college sweetheart, for 12 years and I have two sons — Josiah, 4, and Sam, 8 months.
I am a lifelong Missouri girl, except for one year in college when I lived in Pamplona, Spain. (No, I didn’t run with the bulls — that’s pure insanity — but I did watch from a safe distance.)
I started this as a knitting blog, but these days I write a little about a lot of topics: my family, cooking, faith, fitness, and occasionally some decorating/organizing projects around the house. I hope to inspire more people to cook healthy foods and sit down to eat family meals. I also participate in a few link-ups on a regular basis, like What I’m Into, Twitterature, and One Community.
You might be wondering – what’s up with my blog name, Beauty School Dropout? I didn’t drop out of beauty school. (Or even attend, for that matter.) I named the blog after my favorite song from the musical Grease. Gotta love some vintage Travolta, right? (Oh Saaaaan-dee….)
Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to interact with my readers, so please leave a comment if you have any questions or suggestions for posts!
