​Hey, I’m Stacy

As you may have surmised by my name (and I know you spotted it right off the bat because my readers are only the smartest and most wonderful people) I am an American; a blow in, an immigrant, a transplant living in Ireland. I love both my countries, but Ireland is my home now. I’ve been here since 2011 and I’m still learning and exploring.

I started this blog to share my ideas about how to do the best with what you’ve got and make everyday, typical things special. Typical? Never. 

I’m so glad you stopped by. We are going to be going on adventures, cooking and eating great food, making things, buying things, meeting interesting people, taking pictures of it all and just pretty much seeing what we can get up to and enjoying what life has to offer. Together we are going to do ordinary things in extraordinary ways. Nothing needs to be typical. I have a great day everyday and there’s always something fun going on over here. You’re gonna love it! Thank you so much for having a look and checking me out, let’s have some fun. Come back often and see what The Fat Yank is getting up to.

Enjoy the sunshine xx
