About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

Date Night!

My mom got me the best birthday gift!  A "Date Night" with my husband.  One of our local parishes was doing a fundraiser last night where they had a great dinner, raffles (we won two prizes) and a comedy show called "The Portuguese Kids". 

She sent the hubby and I off for the night to enjoy some adult time together (really the 1st time since Ava's been born.  No one else has ever put Ava to bed other than Shaun or I) and watched the baby for the night.  I know Ava LOVES "Nana", so didn't worry one bit.  I also know that my mom's going to need to watch her and put her to bed when I go to have the new baby in 3 mo, so we're trying to get her used to this ahead of time.

Shaun & I had a great time.  It was nice to get all dressed up with my handsome husband and head out together.  I did miss my baby, but knew she was fast asleep a little over an hour after we left.  Thanks so much Mom!

26 1/2 weeks preggo!


  1. Oh, my gosh, you look so beautiful!! (well, you always do)

    I hope you had a wonderful time!

    1. Thanks so much Jamie! So do you. It was so nice to have him all to myself... but I missed my baby ;)

  2. You look awesome!! Isn't it so refreshing to have your hubby all to yourself sometimes :) glad you were able enjoy yourself.

    1. Thanks Tee! It was! We sure did. Please give me a call and let me know if you need anything!

  3. Thanks!!! I've actually been doing really well and taking care of my dad this week... He had his gall bladder removed on tuesday. Finally off all meds during the day... Pain meds at night so I can sleep :) I have a box of stuff for Ava though. Oh and your gift that I made you almost 2yrs ago now... Lol

  4. Every couple needs a good night out and to have fun together to remember what it is like to be a couple rather than just a mom and dad. It is so important for you two to spend some time together now before baby arrives, you know how hard it is to leave them when they are so small. I think you are owed another romantic evening or two!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
