About Me



TheresesPieces is a lifestyle blog focused on my adventures in food, life, weight loss and other random life musings.

Welcome to my blog! I’m Therese and I am 30 years old and currently residing in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago with my amazing husband and two cats, Willy and Madeline. About two years ago I made the decision to start a new job, go back to school, and finally finish what I started about 11 years ago. I decided to start blogging as a means to de-clutter and organize my mind, life, and soul. Bare with me as I start on this new endeavor.


  • I’m almost always in a perpetual state of stress
  • I’m kind of a handful
  • I have a growing collection of owl paraphernalia
  • I am a Disney and Harry Potter freak
  • I have three tattoos (one of which in hindsight was a mistake, but you live and learn right?)
  • My last meal would be a deep dish pepperoni pizza from Lou Malnati’s 
  • I am a Starbucks addict
  • I am the most clumsiest and least graceful person on the planet
  • I need to be in control of everything always
