Who the heck is this girl? The one telling me the nitty gritty details of her life… why does she get SOOO gaga over entertaining, cooking, getting a new pair of earrings and her 2 boys?
I am Pippa Goetz… and while I
may NOT always get what I want, I AM the person behind the pictures on my Instagram WhatPippaWantsPippaGoetz where you may know me as the sometimes brash, hashtag obsessed, often eye rolling, wine guzzling, martini shaking, DIYing and Crafty as F*CK crackpot who has had life-long dreams of taking over where Martha left off when she got all bitchy.
I am a nearing mid 40’s mother of 2 boys (the oft referenced and slightly hyperactive #witzendweeones) who lives with my patient, quiet, spotlight avoiding and beyond brilliant Tech husband in a house we call ‘WITZEND’ in Southeastern PA (insert laundry list of necessary projects and renovations necessary thus the name), with our 2 lazy as hell rescue Labs who make our world hairier but happier and an always on the brink of death Beta Fish.
I consider myself blessed with a slew of survival skills including: being a recovering Event planner, a retired formally trained Chef and an ex-hippie (College was fun… let’s just leave it at that) who cranks up Billie Holiday as often as the Trolls Soundtrack. I am well trained in fabric and home décor hoarding, an ever struggling dirty fingernail sporting Gardener and am known to paint pretty much anything that stands still long enough.
I have a deep seeded love of style, couture and effortless chic but will confess to being guilty of spending my days in stretchy Skinnies, my husband’s old oxfords and converse. I have an untamed shopaholic streak but tend to only invest in shoes, bags and jewelry because let’s be real… they will still fit after a week of indulgence.
Like a Russian nesting doll, there is obviously more to me but let’s just say that we will leave things at the “elevator summary” for now hoping that I don’t scare you off (or worse still, bore the heck out of you), and know that little by little I will inevitably let a little more insight sneak out through my posts.
Just be warned… I write like I speak… fast, sometimes crazy excited, a touch of private school education with a mouth like a sailor and almost always too loud… that’s just the way it is, so if you are already freaked out just hang on for the pictures and skip the run on sentences for now (you’ll adjust, I promise).
I hope that while you are here you become inspired, find something you love as much as I do or have enough fun reading along to keep reading, tell a friend and not block me.
Much love to you, and Cheers to new adventures.
