Formally, I’m Susannah, but most people call me Sue. I’m married to Mr. Slade and we have 4 boys: 7 year old identical twins, a 3 year old and a 1 year old. I grew up and still live near Salt Lake City.

A few random things about me: My husband and I met at work. He was the strong, handsome warehouse worker and I was the cute, office girl. We dated for two years before we were married. I always untie my shoes before I take them off. I’ve been bungee jumping in New Zealand. It was such a rush. My favorite pizza is supreme. I like to road bike and I’ve completed a century (100 mile) race, but generally stick to shorter rides.

The idea for this blog came about because one day I was looking at a fashion blogger’s post and there was a really cute bag. I clicked on the link and the bag was close to $1000. I couldn’t afford a thousand dollar bag, but the thought came to me, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a fashion blogger who gave away the items they were wearing, and with that The Blue Desert was created. I hope you find inspiration in the outfits I post and that I can help you get started with your wardrobe or help you continue building it.

I hope you will following along. Thanks so much for stopping by.
