About Me

The day I said "I do" I married the love of my life and the United States Navy. Since then we have been enjoying the life that the Navy has offered us. This is the story of my days as a wife, stay at home mom of 3 , dog wrangler, and coordinator of our crazy lives!

Our Big News!

Since it has become public knowledge now (or at least as public knowledge as Facebook makes it), I thought I would share on here that we are expecting our 2 AND 3 children in October :-)

This is the announcement that I used to post it to the world. I found a similar variation on pinterest and made it work for us. Then we found out they were twins and had to tweak it again. Regardless, I thought it came out cute. 

Just a couple of days ago Ed surprised me with a minivan. We were actually in the process of buying a new Ford Fusion when we found out about the twins. That being said, there was no way I was going to be able to cram 3 carseats in the back of a Fusion. We started looking at larger SUV's and found that we really couldn't swing getting such bad gas mileage (especially with all of the moving and traveling we do). We settled on a minivan and low and behold my husband sneakily traded in my Escape and bought me this:

I love it and it was very nice to drive it north on our partial move (more on that later). I just never imagined myself being a minivan kind of mom, so I am having some adjustment issues. It seems unnecessary with only one little one to tote around and I feel even weirder when I am the only one in it.   I just keep reminding myself to enjoy the solitude because soon it is going to be packed to the brim with babies and dogs!
