About Us

From MRS. to MOM, here are our stories–in a nutshell!

 

My happily ever after began in the outback…Outback Steakhouse that is. My future husband and I both waited tables there and had our first date at the company picnic on July 31, 2000. We were married March 30th 2001. In a world where engagements sometimes last longer than marriages I’m pretty impressed with us.

Three years to the day after our first date our first daughter was born. Tori is a 14 year old freshman. We also have Piper, a 12 year old 7th grader, Eric a 6 year old 1st grader, Eli who is 3, our super surprise baby Zella who is one and our angel baby MJ.

My life is many, many things but boring definitely isn’t one of them 🙂

Rarely does one want to remember what happens on their 21st birthday but in my case I’m glad I did. I met Matt that night and began my journey to becoming a wife and mother. We were married a little over a year later on February 25, 2006.

Our oldest sons, Benjamin (aka Benj) and Jack, were born in August 2006. Then, since I wasn’t tired or crazy enough, we added Noah in July of 2008 and to make everything nice and even Sam joined the crew in June of 2011.

It has been a wild ride raising 4 boys close in age but, somehow, they are all in full day school, and I survived!

2008–That’s the year I met my mister.  We met at a child’s birthday party!  He was a friend of the dad, and I a friend of the mom.  We began dating shortly after that May birthday party (though he swears it was a July birthday party).  A year later we were engaged and we got married on June 19, 2010.

2013–We decided we’d like to start a family, but God had other plans for us and we spent two years trying.  During that time we also traveled and enjoyed becoming an Aunt and Uncle.

2015–We went to Vegas to celebrate the Mr.’s 30th Birthday!  After sleeping most of the trip, I decided something might be up and it was.  We were going to be parents!  Our little mister was born in November of 2015.

2017–We welcomed our second son at 9:16 PM on 9-16-17!
