I just want to start off by saying, thanks for stopping by and reading my little ditty of a blog! It means so much to me that you would take out of your day to read. This site is for the women and moms who push aside a perfect pretty life & claim an imperfect beautiful one instead!
As a woman, I wear many hats, as I am sure you do too! I’m a child of God, a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a daughter-in-law, a sister-in-law, a friend and an avid exerciser, (don’t hate me because of the last one, mama has to blow off some steam somewhere). I love humor and a bit of sarcasm, at times! (So don’t take everything I say too seriously!) I’m a wanna-be country music singer (yes Chris, I admitted it. He’s dying from embarrassment right now, I am sure!) I’m a horrible jump roper and I love sleep. As you know babies and sleep don’t always go hand-in-hand, so that’s been a challenge. I have had many challenges in my life, some big, some small but, I am an overcomer and with God I am free of those struggles and challenges. Doesn’t mean challenges don’t arise at times, because they do! With three kids and a husband, problems do arise! We are breathing aren’t we?!
We live in a small town in the deep south and love the outdoors until about August, it’s so hot here you could cook an egg on the pavement. No seriously, I ain’t joking! We are a Homeschool family that loves to travel but, our favorite destination is Walt Disney World! I also have a Disney Travel Blog over at Walt Express. So needless to say we go to Disney often! Our Homeschool schedule allows it, so why not!?
Like I said before, I love to exercise so I help others achieve their fitness goals as a Beachbody Coach and I love every minute of it!
My husband, Chris, has a huge heart for God and has taught me a lot about my faith. He sings and plays instruments and has a huge heart for ministry. We meet in March 2004, got engaged in April 2004 and married in August 2004. Yes, I know it was quick but when you know, you know! We have had our ups and downs and struggles, but with God we have made it through all of them. He is the love of my life and I couldn’t imagine doing this crazy life without him.
In January 2009 we had our first offspring, Minnie Mouse. We were told nine months before we only had a seven percent chance of ever having kids! Yeah, well God knew better! Then, in January 2012 God blessed us with twin boys, Chip and Dale. (You do realize these aren’t my kids real names, right?!) 😉 Any ways, He blessed us three times and continues to bless everything through them.
My kids are awesome and I’m sure yours are too! They are three little bundles of energy. They wake up at 6a (yes, you read right, exhausting) and go, go, go until they go to sleep at night! All three are a great mixture of Chris and I (yes, I know, bless their hearts) and all the bad traits, (if there are any) came from Chris. I’m claiming all the good ones! Just sayin’! Minnie Mouse (5) has a heart for God and loves music and making me laugh with all of her great perspectives. Chip (2) is a blonde headed little boy (only one of the three and if you know me, you know that is far from me) that is loud, oh so loud! He loves to be heard and to sing. His favorite song is “Let is Go”! Hence, we are Disney nuts around here! Dale (2) is the more quite of the three and loves to dance. His favorite dance moves are from “Yo Gabba Gabba.”
Oh yeah, and we have a cat, Jazz! Quite frankly we have a cat because they are low-er maintenance and mama, here, can’t commit to cleaning up anymore poop from any other being right now! My hands are full at the moment!
So that’s my family and life in a nut-shell! Pun totally intended! See what I did there? You can laugh! Seriously crack a smile!
