Suzanne is a former high school English teacher and a current WAHM to her 5 kids: Brianna, Jonna, Zanna, Mila, and Vin. Her house is always loud and always chaotic, but she's learned to embrace the bedlam as the sound of joy and life. She and her husband Wayne love all things Disney, all things Star Wars, all things oily, all things crunchy (ish) and all thing education-y. A native of Pascagoula and current resident of Gautier, she really wants to eat well and exercise, but most days, she’s just trying to hang on until bedtime with her sanity intact. Follow her shenanigans on Instagram @ourrodiculouslife or on Facebook.
