A little info about me!

Last night I was talking with some friends about blogging and how I have not felt very creative or inspired in my blogging lately. Sometimes all I can think to write about is my children and being a mother. So here is a little bit more just about me. Hope you enjoy it!

5 years ago... I was living in Pocatello, Idaho attending Idaho State University getting my degree in Secondary Education; Social Sciences. I was also working at Beverly's Bloomers Flower shop. I was two months pregnant with my first child, Jacob. It was an exciting time of life!

5 months ago... I was eight months pregnant and excited about being finished with pregnancy. I was also preparing to have our first Christmas away from family. Both Christmas and baby turned out to be great!

5 hours ago... I was working on getting three kids dressed for the day and fed breakfast, then I got myself dressed and fed. I also was starting a load of laundry and tidying up the house because my parents are coming into town today, yeah!! Ben's parents come tomorrow!

5 minutes ago.. I was putting David down for a nap, and getting Madeline entertained with some toys so I could write this blog. I also hung up three shirts from the laundry.
