First Things First.

5 years ago

Oh, hey. I'm new here.

 

I just wanted to get started by saying hey and giving a little story about myself.

As you can read from my profile, I'm 26 and I have a 4 year old daughter named Charlotte and a 7 year old step-daughter named Lynnae. They are pretty rad kids. My husband and I have been together off and on for about 9 years. He is the love of my life, even though sometimes I want to strangle him (this is a normal thing in marriage, so I'm told). :)

Girls Guitar shirts
Here are my girls with their sweet guitar shirts they got for Christmas. They have little amp-looking battery packs and when you strum, actual noise comes out. Yes, noise. I'm sorry. I love my kids. They are awesome. But those shirts are going to Nana's house asap!

Rings
Our wedding day :) This was honestly one of the best days of my life, August 18, 2012. This picture pretty much sums up our entire relationship... :)

As you can see from the picture above, I'm kind of a chubby girl. SO. Best friend and I have decided we will get in better shape. I'm not talking 'New Year's Resolution I'll never keep' to lose weight. I'm talking, making a promise to myself to be more active and eat more fruits and veggies. And in my head, it's different. So I downloaded an app called C25K (Couch to 5k) and I got started last week. I want to do a mudathalon by the end of summer. We'll see how it goes. The motivation was really another girlfriend of mine (who has an amazing body) asked me to do The Warrior Dash and I was not even considering it until I looked at their website and it is for St. Jude. I love St. Jude and I have a soft spot in my heart for those kids. So that's what really got me up off my butt.

Bestie
Bestie and me at my rehearsal dinner in August. Isn't she cute?

I plan on blogging about life. Marriage, family, kids, my house and all the improvements we have to make, my crafts (I just got a sewing machine for Christmas!), my husband's business, and whatever else pops into my noggin.

So that's what's going on in my life right now. Please don't be too hard on me if my grammar is poor or I'm not 'good' at blogging. I haven't had a blog since the 12th grade, so I'm probably rusty.

I'll be back with more later.

xoxoK
