Blog Every Day September Challenge, Day 3

 

Day 3 (Tuesday) : Why did you start blogging?

I started this blog in April of 2008, just a little less than a year after we got married. We were getting ready to move to Tennessee and I wanted to document our lives for our friends and family back home. It was off and on from then on, I wrote a lot more once we conceived Boogie, if you look back you’ll find LOTS of posts about her! Since then it’s been about documenting our lives, adventures, trips, and pretty much everything we do for our kids. I love that I can also have the opportunity to review products and even give some away! Speaking of giveaways… Don’t forget to check out my 200 Facebook Fan Giveaway HERE

And unfortunately, I don’t have any photographs from our time in Tennessee…. so instead, since I just HAVE to have photos in every blog entry (haha!), how about more of my sweet kiddos?

Blog Every Day September Challenge, Day 2

 

Day 2 (Monday): What is your favorite season? Why?

01

I LOVE Autumn. I live in the mountains, so around the middle or end of September the leaves on the trees start changing. It’s absolutely breathtaking!

02

The weather gets cooler, the air is crisp, the bugs go away (for the most part)… it’s fabulous! J’s favorite holiday is Halloween, he loves getting dressed up and having Halloween movie marathons, so now that we are parents his love for the holiday has tripled!

03

We are planning a party for the four of us, I know Boogie will have a blast! We are also planning a trip to an apple orchard, buying (or picking) pumpkins to carve and paint, and I’m sure once we have lots of leaves in the yard we’ll rake them up and play in them!

04

Autumn is wonderful, I’m so ready for sweaters, boots, and blue jeans!

Blog Every Day September Challenge, Day 1

 

Day 1 (Sunday): Give me your life story in 300 words or less.

I was born and raised in a small town in Western North Carolina, I had one younger brother and a HUGE extended family.

01

I met and started dating my husband (who was actually an old school mate) in 2006, during my senior year of high school and we were engaged exactly one year later.

02

We got married in September of 2007 and have had an incredible adventure during our lives together. I worked at a law firm as a receptionist, in a child care center during the summers, at a cabin rental company when we moved to a new state, and then I went back to school at a local community college in 2009.

03

Shortly after I went back to school we conceived Boogie. It took us nearly 3 years to finally conceive Boogie, she was our miracle baby!

04

Then 15 months later we conceived Bubby, he wasn’t nearly as difficult to come by as his big sister was! After 3 ½ years I completed my Associate in Arts Degree (fancy way of saying I finished my general education so that someday I can go back and get my Bachelor’s in whatever…), and let me tell you something. It is HARD going to school with a toddler running around!

05

So here we are, I’m 25 years old, a stay at home mom, a blogger, a dreamer, a child of God.
