About Me

I'm Desirée, a domestic engineer, wife to Scott and mom to Marcus and Julia.
In my neck of the blogispher you'll catch a glimpse of life with my family, read up on my journey as a distance runner, see a recipe or two that I love enough to share, and occasionally host a fun giveaway of products I love.

My alma mater is Iowa State University, and I bleed Cardinal and Gold. The hubs is a Kansas State alum, so I will cheer for them, too, so long as they're not playing my beloved Cyclones. Any given Fall Saturday you can find my family cheering on our respective teams. To keep everyone happy in this house all you have to say is, "Go State!"

Though I'm a Midwestern girl at heart I'm finding my place in Southern California.

Thanks for stopping by the Macke Monologues. I hope you come back soon, and come back often!



  1. Hello from a fellow Iowa State alum! I, too, lived in Los Angeles -- but am back in Council Bluffs now.

  2. Hi Desiree-- I saw your comment on The Chronicles of We today about the Bloom Workshop. I'm the co-founder! I wanted to pop in and tell you we may be coming to California in the future, but this year we have two more workshops planned in the midwest and south (but these haven't been announced yet!) You can like us on Facebook to get all the details :) https://www.facebook.com/thebloomworkshop?ref=hl&ref_type=bookmark


  3. Hi! I found your blog through Chasin' Mason. Though I'm a Hawkeye and my hubby is a Jayhawk, we reside in KC and seem to have a lot in common! Excited to follow along! Your newest follower, Sarah at Seeing All Sides.

  4. Desiree, Could you tell me where you purchased your Blue Aprons, Thanks, Mig
