a b o u t m e

i was born in berlin, germany.
im very much in love with traveling.
cruises are my ultimate vacation.
im infatuated with my husband.
fur mom of a boxer, named marshall.
a first time mama to crue.
put on this world to be a mother.

i used to be a blonde. naturally born with black hair, naturally turned blonde before i was 1. naturally started turning brown after high school. ironically just before our BFP, i decided to say screw the thousand trips to the salon to stay a blonde & went my natural color, brown.

i hate it. i want to be blonde again. 
i hate typing with capitol letters.
slightly OCD? maybe? yes.
i love being tan. i am usually ridiculously tan in the summers. 
i refuse to go into a tanning bed. i hate everything about those things.
i cant stand running late. and my husband happens to be king of running late. grrr.
speaking of my husband, were cruise a'holics. 
i love the ocean, sunshine, sand & luscious green palm trees.
MN is not the place for me.

im a:
packer fan.
only child.
caribou coffee caramel lovin' addict.

i started this blog in 2012 in hopes of finding ladies that i could relate with when it came to TTC and PCOS. because in my world, it went as deep as {infertility}.  i wish i would have started blogging sooner and have been able to document more of my struggles and triumphs - but soon after i began blogging, we were in our first round of fertility meds and i got my very first ever, BFP.
now this doesn't mean i feel any less for those struggling or no longer live with those issues, because i do. and they'll still be around when we try for our future babies. however, i can not wait to live this life and go on this journey with my husband and our miracle boy. for now, this blog will be probably just that. a lifestyle blog. im excited to see whats to come as the calendar pages turn.

i went to college {i sometimes wonder why} & i got my degree in elementary education. i taught preschool for two years, until a family had questioned me about nannying. the salary was nearly double my teaching salary - so i said goodbye to the classroom and hello to the nanny family of five. {yes. i am a girl who ditched her degree.}
soon after, i became engaged & was in the chaos joys of wedding planning // which i became obsessed with. obsessed, i tell you. i want to plan a thousand more.
our wedding came & went and i became a stay at home wife. after working with our fertility specialist for a few months, i got my first BFP in november.
we had a miracle pregnancy & our sweet baby boy C came in august 2013.
after more struggles, we welcomed baby girl L in june 2015.
being a mom is my dream come true.
& being infertile sucks.

what else?
