about me

My Mom and two of my sisters have recently started blogging so thought I might give it a shot as well. I am 25 years old. I have been married to my husband for 4 1/2 years and we have two gorgeous girls. My oldest is 2 1/2 (i'll refer to her as 'noodle') and we have a 4 month old ( i'll refer to her as 'lizard'). Noodle is the first grandchild on my side of the family, so you can imagine how it went over when another baby came into the picture. After about two months she finally accepted the fact that lizard was here to stay. And she has been crazy about her ever since.

I was a hairdresser at a salon here in town until September when I decided to start maternity leave and have two months at home with my girl before my other girl arrived. That was the best decision I could have made. We had a blast, to say the least. The second best decision I made was to be a stay at home mom. I am very fortunate to have a husband who can support us and make that a possibility. I love being home with my girls! At the same time I do miss seeing my clients and having that social outlet with other adults. I think that is also why I decided to give blogging a try...something I can do for me and have contact with other adults (even if it is just over the internet). As much as I did love my job, being a mom was the job I was born to do. Since I was eight years old I have wanted to grow up, get married, and have babies. And, funnily enough, I was eight years old when I first laid eyes on my husband. Never in a million years did I think I would really marry my childhood crush. Funny how life works out :) I have three sisters, one of which is a twin, and the best parents in the world. Did I mention how blessed I am? They all live within five miles of me, which is great. I'm very close with all of them; my Mom and my twin especially. Husband doesn't understand how I can talk to them four times in one day and still have something to say to them five minutes after getting off the phone.

I'm new to this so it might take me a little while to get the hang of it. Be patient with me (i'll get the hang of it eventually). Well, I should wrap this up because it's going on one o'clock in the morning and the girls will be up normal time whether I am or not. Goodnight!


  1. WELCOME TO THE BLOGGY WORLD! You will enjoy blogging so much and the people you meet along the way is the icing on the cake, with a cherry on top! (like your mom), I met thru blogging and can't wait to meet you all face to face someday. Oh, my daughter-in-law is a twin!
