The begining...

I changed the name of our blog...I am still getting used to it. I just dont want our last name listed. You never know how many creepies are out there, and lately I have heard (and read) enough stories to finally change the title.

I figured that while I have a few minutes to spare, I would also take the time to share our story. This is obviously and shortened version, but its enough information to give us a gist of how we came to be...

I was one of those girls who swore up and down that I would never get married and I would certainly never, ever have kids. I honestly cannot recall what on earth would make me say that. Yet, here I am, 25 years old, married and with two kids. What happened right? Well, not long after I said I would never get married or have kids, I met this guy. He was so not my type, but I fell for him-and hard. He was really cool, and funny. We got married, and to our surprise Issy came along 9 months later. She is just this sweet little girl, full of life, trying to make sense of the world, one questions at a time. Oh my can she talk. We laugh as we try to figure out what kind of person she will become(Our vegan, peta protestor, majoring in some sort of science degree- out to change the life of all cats and dogs).

Five years went by and just as things were getting comfortable and just as we thought we started getting the hang of this parenting thing, we decided that adding another kid to the mix would be pretty fun. Who wouldnt want another Issy around?

I guess we had forgotten all about the diaper duties, and lack of sleep involved. Regardless, baby boy Jax came in to the picture. He is just as funny as his dad only cuter!(As all babies are) I can see him being an avid explorer one day, which he gets from both his Daddy and his Grandpa Ray. I swear that this little guy will be doing wheelies on his dirt bike by the time he is 3.

God help me.

This is my life, as you can see I never knew how much I would change and how much I would love this life I have created, but I do. I love it. So this is what I write about... My family, me and all of the quirky ideas I am never quite sure how to execute, but I wing anyway. Every once in a while I will rant about my frustrations at work, as an Association Manager. Most of the time, I write about all the good things that happen, because there are a lot, but I also write about some bad and of course some ugly.

More than anything, we are a busy bunch...so I dont want to forget a single bit of what has happened along the way.

So When I am not busy with diapers, kindergarten homework or laughing at one of my husband’s jokes I am usually just daydreaming about new things to craft up. I daydream about cooking something I am craving, and despretly want to eat. I also spent a lot of time daydream of what I would spent my powerball money on...Ha!
Other than that, I spend a lot of time blogging. I love cute ideas, handmade goods and reading other peoples stories.

Thank you for stopping by.
