About Me

Hello! My name is Amy. I love to sit in front of the TV and drink hot cocoa. I like to take pictures, knit, scrapbook, and make people laugh. I also like Disney. And pancakes. Perhaps my most unique trait is my extreme love of and undying devotion to the Minnesota State Fair.

BrentI met Brent in college when I was working in the dorm cafeteria at the Ortega Taco Bar where he chose to eat every night for months. What can I say, the man likes tacos. The most frequently asked question I get about Brent is Does he like the Fair as much as you? And the answer is no! Of course not. Don't be ridiculous. But he likes the Fair because I like the Fair. It is one of the hundred million ways he is sweet.

UntitledWe have two girls, Bella, who is 10, and Emily (Mimi) who is 7. They live a charmed life full of Legos, Disney, Fair, dolls, miniature food, and custom shaped pancakes made to order. They enjoy telling stories that begin with "While mommy was at the bar..."


Why is the blog called "peppercam?" I'm glad you asked! We used to have a little bunny named Pepper. She was so hilariously naughty that Brent set us up a webcam to watch her while we were at work. The bunny and the webcam are both gone now, but the domain lives on!

Thank you for visiting my website!
