My Life:
In Pictures: (and maybe some words)

I grew up as one of nine kids. And surprise! My parents aren't Catholic, and they did know what caused babies. And I'm guessing they enjoyed it.  It was actually really fun growing up with so many siblings.

I went to college and met my hot hot hot husband.

First we dated:
In Mexico!
Then we got engaged:
Then four months later we got married in December of 2010.
and went on our honeymoon... apparently that's what you do when you're married or something...

And now we are living near Chicago, enjoying life in 300 square feet of glory with our adopted cat daughter, Harper.
The bean! My husband is the smiling one... not the one in the cap. He's older than my dad. I don't roll that way.


  1. Just to clarify... I'm not from Mexico. Nor did you meet me in a college there. haha

  2. I'm from the Chicago area as well :-)

    1. Really? That's awesome. We live in the West suburbs.

  3. I featured you on my blog! Hope that is okay but I am sure you will love it.



  4. You're one of nine? That's awesome--I'm the oldest of seven kids, and I love having all those siblings to have fun with!

    1. Yeah, me too! I still have issues whenever I'm alone for too long (alone time? What is that?) because of my big family. Haha. But it's so fun! I love Christmas and holidays the most.

    2. Oh yeah, I'm definitely NOT one to appreciate alone time very much, either. And I just noticed when you got married--our wedding was in Dec. 2010 too!

  5. What a cool story! I would love to see when your layout is like in a 300 sq ft apartment. How cool is that?! Definitely have to be efficient with your space.
