About Me

Hello strangers! If you are an avid internet wanderer you may have stumbled upon my page. This is my section to tell you a little bit about myself. If you get a chance, I'd also love to learn a little bit about you and what you think of my website (it's actually my first one!). So let's get to it. My name is Maureen, and I was born and raised in Philadelphia. Go Eagles!

I attended the University of North Carolina for my undergrad degree in journalism. I spent a semester in Spain which was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I am trilingual and speak English, Spanish, and French. I'm currently trying to learn Italian using Rosetta Stone.

I am the very blessed mother of two children, Madison and Aiden. Madison is currently eight years old, and Aiden just turned five. He just started kindergarten in the fall! (Learn more about my kids and my extended family on the next page all about my family.)

I am married to the most wonderful husband, Robert. He is a chemical engineer. I can't really tell you exactly what he does because engineering is not my specialty whatsoever. I think I'd have to follow him around for at least a week to even grasp a little of all that he does. Anyways, he's absolutely brilliant, and takes wonderful care of me and our kids.

I used to work at our local library as the children's librarian, but due to budget cuts, I was let go. Although Robert makes a decent income, the two of our incomes together bought us our house and were able to get us everything we need for our kids. I looked all over for a new job. I actually ended up working part-time at Macy's for a little while, but unfortunately they were big fans of putting me on the night shift, and I was NOT!

So I'm sure most of you have seen the show Extreme Couponing on TLC right? Well if not check it out here: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/extreme-couponing . But, since we lost my income, I kind of turned into one of those crazy coupon ladies. (I'd like to think I'm not THAT crazy though.) That's how I got turned on to QR codes.

You might be wondering so why did you make a site on QR codes? Check out the “About This Site” page to learn more.

What is a QR Code?

QR (quick response) codes were invented to be scanned and decoded very quickly. I've only first seen them showing up mid-2011, but they've actually been around for much longer.
