Hi there! My name is Rebecca Alexander. Thanks for stopping by to witness my very first blog post. Let me introduce myself…

Growing up, those closest to me called me Becca Boo, including my dearly loved grandmother, Leo Weimar (yes, Leo was a girl). Friends called her Bitsy, but we grandkids called her Mama Boo. I combined our nicknames to create the blog’s title.

Mama Boo and her children—my mother and her brothers—have shaped me in more ways than I can count. It is my sincere hope that this blog reflects some of the characteristics they have instilled in me: a love of family, entertaining, good eating and storytelling.

What’s more, this blog is a channel for me to highlight some of the marvelous things happening in Baton Rouge. As a staff writer for inRegister Magazine, I cover lots of events and parties around town. So far, it’s been an incredible opportunity to meet new people and stay plugged into the community. There are so many wonderfully diverse personalities making their mark on our city and I really can’t wait to share some of that with you.

With all of that said, there’s a blog post below to really get us started.

Welcome to Bitsy & Boo. Drop by any time!
