Hey there....ya, YOU!! HI!:)

I saw this on a couple of blogs and I have long thought about doing this. 
I know I am totally this person on a lot of your blogs, and I want to get to know you guys!

Tell me about yourself. I want to get to know who is reading my blog.
I have already made so many amazing friends through this blog and I would love to know who else is out there. I have gained a ton of followers in the past year and I have been somewhat of a blog slacker, so I do not want you guys to get pushed to the sidelines. 
You obviously know who I am, if not I will refresh your memory!

This is my blog about our life, the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, it's all here. 
I am a momma to 3 little boys and happy wife to my hot hubs, Jordan. 
I am a lifestyle photographer outside of being a momma, I love to capture precious moments not only of my family but for others, it is such  passion of mine. 
I do a local weekly segment on our news with two of my great mom friends called Moms On The Go, this year we are teaming up with a ton of local places for a huge charity mission. Giving is what life is truly about so I am so grateful to be a part of something that will be helping others.
Other than those 2 ventures, I am first and foremost a momma, like I said to 3 little men!
Our house is NON STOP 247!
We have a lot going on this year with the boys growing older, I will be starting the journey of homeschooling with Vincent and Luke (a little) but please pray for my patience. 
I love to cook and do crafts when I get a hot second to myself. 
We just bought our dream vintage home (you will see us on HGTV House Hunters this spring!) and we are very BUSY with getting it to where we want it. There is a lot of work that goes into an old home that we are slowly learning the ins and outs of. Lots of renovations and projects ahead for us. 
Things I love: Reality TV, frappes, chocolate, my husbands body ;), scalding hot showers, chicago popcorn, sleeping, the color yellow, warm weather.
Things I despise: Liars, fake people, fish, cold weather, the smell of mustard and ketchup, when my dog pees in the house, changing diapers. 
I think that pretty much sums me up. Mom. Wife. That's me!

So now it's your turn.
COMMENT and let me know who you are! If I am not yet following your blog, leave your link! I know a good chunk of you guys already but if you are one of the people that just read and don't comment, please do! Let me know who you are, what do you do? Do you have kiddos? Whats your life like? What makes you happy!?! Gotta make sure your not a creeper! haha! In return I will stop reading and not commenting on your blogs! xoxo


  1. My name is Katie. I love your blog and following along on how you handle life with 3 kids! You are a saint. I am a mother to 2 little ones, Adalyn and Eric! I am also a stay at home mother. I would like to know more about home schooling so I look forward to your posts on that. My kids are not yet in school but I would love to explore all the options. I do not yet blog, but seeing all the cool moms that blog I might start one!

    1. Thanks Katie! I will for sure update once we get started on homeschooling! Hopefully it works for us, eeeeeeeeek!! If you start a blog, be sure to let me know, I would love to follow along! Hope you and your little ones are having a great week, xoxo

  2. My my name is Meagan. I live in a small down in Michigan. I'm a mother of two boys, ages 3 and 17 months. I am a working mom. My husband and I have been together since high school, 10 years this month! He works midnights so I feel like a single mom sometimes:( I love how down to earth you are and how awesome you are with your boys. I'm sure ever day isn't perfect but you seem to go with the punches well. When I have spare time, ha whats that, I love to read and enjoy a good bath;) I also enjoy a good coffee:)

    I also love reading yours and other blogs like yours beause I feel like I can connect with you guys more than I can other woman my age(I'm 25). I have a few friends who are married and even fewer with kids so it is hard for them to understand that I can't just go out last minute. You guys make me feel "normal".

  3. I am Dara, stay at home mom to 3 kids. My blog is at http://notinjersey.blogspot.com.

  4. Hi! I'm Marie in Nashville :) I have no clue how I originally found your blog, but I'm so glad I did.My husband and I are marriage coaches (think life coaches but for your marriage). We have one little guy, Otis, that I am so in love with. It's funny because I thought I wanted daughters, but I'm now sold on the idea of a whole home full of boys (so jealous of you!). And I'm with Katie on the homeschooling tips/posts. I'd love to hear how you make it happen. And I blog at www.nashvillemarriagestudio.com/blog.

  5. Hi Jordan, I'm Laura. Nice to meet you! :)
    I'm a wife, mom to my adorable son Caleb and part-time piano teacher. I'm really excited to read about your homeschooling adventures since I plan on that myself.
    I blog at isaiahfiftyfive.blogspot.com. It started out as an infertility blog, and is slowly changing into a mix of life as a mom, adoption, and all things home - cooking, organization, etc.
    Things I love - lemon tea with honey, exercising (though I've done far to little of that since my son arrived, haha), cooking, reading, being Catholic (loved your conversion story, by the way), and blogging. Please feel free to stop by!

    1. Good grief, I meant Allie, not Jordan! Maybe I need tea with caffeine this morning!! :)

  6. I had no idea you and I were so similar! I could have practically written your likes and dislikes.
    Let's see...

    married almost 8 years, mom to 2 1/2 (due in April!), born and raised in a TINY Ohio Amish town, currently living in Southern Arizona (almost on the border), was a military wife and survived 2 deployments totaling 33 months, and love everything about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and babies!

  7. Love this idea! I started following you a loooong time ago. Before you were even pregnant with Jude :) I saw some of your tweets about House Hunters, I'll definitely need to watch that one because we live in an old (1940s) house which is a constant state of projects. I kind of wish they would just end already!

  8. I am Jennifer, I have two children Katelyn and Noah (29months and 15 months respectively). I went back to work part-time last February and worked briefly full-time the month of November as a long term sub in a high school science class.

    I start working in February after a short hiatus. I love being at home with the kids, but I also love working.

    I am not sure when or how I started following you.

    I wish I were a more active blogger, but time is not what it was before I had children.

    I blog at gettingzs.blogspot.com

  9. How fun that you'll be on House Hunters this Spring! I'm a little HGTV obsessed ;)

    I'm 25, approaching a 2-year anniversary mark and work in the football world :)

  10. You have such an adorable family! I'm April from Michigan and you can find me at www.aprilscountrylife.blogspot.com. I blog about lots of things - recipes, crafts, country life, social issues, my kids (daughter 9 & son 4), gardening... I'm also a full-time working mom and have a menagerie of fun critters too. I love House Hunters, by the way, can't wait to see you guys on it!

  11. I'm Jill, 34 years old, living in a suburb of T-town that starts with an S :o)

    I just went back to work after being home for 3.5 years. I work for a nun and LOVE it!!!!

    I enjoy a good vodka tonic and chocolate. My latest endeavor is being serious about getting back into shape. I used to be so in shape and so dedicated to the gym and then it all went to heck when I had my son. My husband is also on board so we take turns going to the gym.

    Oh and we just decided we want to sell our house, so this could get interesting. I cannot wait to see your episode of House Hunters!!!!!!

    I've been a terrible blogger lately because I feel like I never have enough time in they day.

  12. Hi Allie! I'm glad we found each other last year since we have so much in common...boy moms...primal eating...being Catholic...I enjoy reading your journey!

  13. I'm Emily (but you already know that :), stay at home mom of 3 crazy kids (Dylan 4, Will 2 and Lauren 6 months), grew up on a farm in Iowa but now lives in a Chicago suburb, catholic and crazy crazy about my family and extended family.

    Loves: running, photography, play dates for the kids, coffee, reality tv, sleeping and alone time (which I never get anymore :)

Cathleen is 2 and has Autism and attends school and therapy at Sensational Kids Daycare & Learning Center in Holland.
