Calling all math nerds, bakers, and/or sweet enthusiasts:

 I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for an excuse to enjoy a delicious pie. Did you graduate from CPR class, make an A on your homework, or not call your kid a jerk today? All reasons to devour a pie. Did you know there is an actual pie day? March 14, 3.14, like the Greek letter, π. Pi in math, is used to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is approximately 3.14159.

Fun Facts about pi and pie:

  • Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point.
  • Pies date back to the Ancient Egyptians around 2,500BC. Their pies were made with ground oats or wheat and had honey or figs as filling.
  • 1 in 5 Americans claim to have eaten an entire pie by themselves. No judgment.
  • 9% of Americans prefer to eat their pie crust first… weirdos.
  • 3.14 backward is PIE
  • Did you know that 3.14% of sailors are pi-rates #dadjoke

Get ready to mark your calendars for more excuses to eat pie:

  • April 28th National Blueberry Pie Day
  • June 9th National Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Day

Her name usually starts a conversation as soon as she introduces herself. Most people have never met a woman named Scotti and it’s a topic she loves talking about because her name has shaped her and allows her to talk about her family. She was born in 1988 in Tyler, TX and named after her dad, Scott. They moved further south in east Texas and she grew up in Shelbyville, TX. We got her looks and sense of humor from her dad and her caring, old soul from her mom, Missi. When she was 17, she decided to join the Texas Army National Guard and after graduating high school, she left home for basic training. She graduated basic training and became a medic (68W). She is still in the Army NG after 12 years and is stationed here in Tyler, Texas as a full time active Soldier. She met her husband, Cody in the military and they have been married for 9 years. She is a step mom to a 12 year old named Brandon, he is the biggest animal lover you will ever meet and wants to be a zoo keeper when he grows up. She and her husband completed a cycle of IVF October 2017 after many years of struggling with infertility and are now pregnant with a little boy to be named Kane. She enjoys riding motorcycles and being with family most. Also, being creative brings her peace, whether it be with food, paper, paint or plants.
