My First Post… Finally

Ever since I found out we were expecting, I thought blogging would be a fun way to journal the experiences of becoming a mom. Well here I am with a 4 month old and just now getting around to doing it. I think I kept putting it off because English was never my strongest subject and honestly putting myself out there through writing was very intimidating. After months and months of coming up with every excuse not to do this, I decided to finally put myself out there. 

For those of you who do not know me well, or know me at all, I am a 28 year old Corporate Event Planner from Texas. I met my husband, Dustin, in high school and we were married in September of 2009.

A few months later, we decided we were ready for our first "baby" who we named Bennington...

And then we spent the next 4 years enjoying each other, establishing careers, traveling, and "getting ready" to become parents. We found out we were expecting in August 2013… 

And our lives changed forever when Boston was born in April. He is so much fun and we are loving every second.  Being a mom is so much work but when he smiles at me and gives me his "love eyes", everything feels so worth it.

A few final things about me…. I love spending my time with family and friends. If it is Fall, and a Saturday, Sunday, Monday or Thursday, you can probably find me watching some football. I love planning parties and making to do lists just so I can cross things off them. I like figuring out the easiest ways to do things. A good glass of wine can almost always get me out of a funk. And I am pretty much obsessed with truffle oil.

  1. My bestie is a blogger! This is the first post and I've already cried. I love you and can't wait to follow your blogging journey. I love you more than you know.

  2. Yay! I love being able to see more you and Baby Boston!

  3. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great place. Food was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue for events in NYC and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
