About me


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 which you can check my site – Palm Beach Roofing Expert, 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 can also find me on FacebookTwitterPinterestdailymileinstagram, and Ravelry.

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!

    • Thanks for commenting, Jean! I’m really looking forward to the Unprocessed challenge, although it’s probably going to be harder than I think! I am also going to try to blog 31 Days of Eating Unprocessed during the month of October.
