About Andrea

Meet Andrea

Hello Dear Readers (most of whom I think I know already),

You have obviously ended up here because you would like to learn more about us.  So, here you go.

I am not a terribly exciting person – I can tell you that much.  I married my high school sweetheart, and we don’t have any kids (taking care of the dog is challenge enough).   I graduated (BA and MA) from WSU, and I now work there (one of the best places on Earth).  I love to cook, bake, and entertain –  which is why I began selling Pampered Chef in March of 2010 (www.pamperedchef.biz/afarmer).

To be very honest I am not an easy one to describe so, I am listing 100 things that I love/make me happy.  Enjoy!
