I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

Hell hath no fury like a biker chick scorned. On Season 5 of FX's hit Shakespearean motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy - skidding to its high-octane finale tonight - that betrayal has been brought to vivid life by Katey Sagal as SAMCRO matriarch Gemma. We made tracks to Kim's Video & Music in NYC to catch up with Sagal.



TV Guide Magazine: It's appropriate we're meeting at a record store today, since you started out in show business as a singer...
Sagal:
I had bands and record deals, some pretty good shots - then I started feeling tired of the struggle and decided I'd better open up my venues. But music is my first love.



TV Guide Magazine: This season, Gemma went off the rails with drugs and alcohol. You've been sober for decades. Was that tough to play?
Sagal:
I have a lot of history with some of it, though I certainly never had a car crash like Gemma where I hurt somebody. It's not a scary place for me to go back to because it only strengthens my gratitude that I'm not there.



TV Guide Magazine: SOA has a history of major cliff-hangers. What's in store?
Sagal:
The ending is pretty shocking - fans will not be disappointed. This season's theme has been secrets and lies, and there will be more. I can tell you nobody's gonna die.



TV Guide Magazine: You're married to creator Kurt Sutter, who also plays inmate Otto. Are you two as fiery as Gemma and Clay in real life?
Sagal:
We're so not them! He's a very sweet man. I know he writes a dark and violent show, but he's really smart and wonderful. It's definitely a balancing act being married to the boss. I am straddling both worlds.



TV Guide Magazine: Ever sass him about show-related issues?
Sagal:
Well, I have to do it very carefully, because I've done it all the wrong ways. So I ask questions much more sparingly now than I did at the beginning. It's like with anything in marriage: You gotta say it at the right time.



TV Guide Magazine: Gemma's hair is practically a character of its own. Are those actual highlights?
Sagal:
This is the first year they're clipped in, because my hair was starting to fall out. I had bald spots on the top of my head. This season, because she's kind of a mess, the streaks look like a mess. As we've evolved toward the end, we've worked on the hair so it starts to look better.



TV Guide Magazine: Season 7 will likely be SOA's last. Where do you think these characters will end up?
Sagal:
Ha! Well, I haven't thought much about it. In Hamlet, they all die. It's an option.



Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesday at 10/9c on FX.
