About me

Occupation Diaper changer, toy cleaner upper, tear dryer, boo-boo kisser, waitress, finance manager, laundry guru, house cleaner, and TEACHER of all things!
Location Illinois, United States
Introduction I am completely head-over-heels in love with my (smokin' hot) hubby of 12 years, Shane. We have three awesome and quite funny little men in our household--Colin is 9, Cameron is 7, and Ethan is 6. And, as if we were not blessed enough....our baby girl, Lola Claire--the PINK icing on our cake--just turned three! In December of '07 we unexpectedly lost our fourth baby to miscarriage, and God has given me a real burden for other families who have also lost children. I was a home business owner for 6 years, and now I am blessed to hold the title of Professional Tear-Dryer, Boo-Boo Kisser, Activities Director, Food Creator, Finance Manager, Laundry Guru, House Tidier, and Teacher! {But I'm certainly best known as "Mommy".}
