I am an outgoing and fun-lovin’ gal who was lucky enough to marry the man of my dreams! You could probably say I am an “extreme extrovert” as I LOVE to talk and be around people! I love ANYTHING creative and am not a fan of the “norm.” My favorite things in life are my family… especially my HOT husband, my friends, and my faith! We recently had a miracle baby boy after years of struggling with infertility. I have a passion for life and I am having a BLAST running this website with some of my closest friends. Life just keeps getting better and better!

It’s true, my husband and I are “LOST” fans!! *sigh* We were so bummed when it came to a close that we had to celebrate our love of all things LOST. My husband recently went back to school and he just finished up the school year. Finals were brutal and stressful so I wanted to do something FUN and relaxing. I wanted to do something that involved cuddling with my man and THAT is how this whole idea started! I took all of...
A Date for Your Road Trip
Do any of you have a ROAD TRIP coming up in the near future? I have the perfect date idea for you! My husband & I recently traveled a tooooonnnnnn.

Solve a Crime With the One You Love
Pretty much any night of the week you can find a crime show on TV. As entertaining as it is to see actors solve a crime... we think it's a LOT more fun to solve one yourself! Get a group together (or just you and your sweetie) and join the case of CSI: Love Edition! This whole idea was inspired by a group date I went on to the CSI Experience in Las Vegas. I have never really watched the show so I wasn't sure what to expect. Holy...

Ready for a FUN anniversary date that you can do no matter how many years you have been married??
We usually GO on the dates and then tell you all about them but since my next anniversary isn't until June, I haven't actually gone on this one yet.

I wear many titles.
Boss Lady (Ha!)
But the one title that has taught me the most would have to be that of “Infertility Warrior.”
Who would have thought that the girl who grew up in a family of six kids, owned ALL of the Babysitter’s Club books, babysat the neighborhood children on a weekly basis, absolutely adored children, aspired to be an elementary school teacher (and taught for ten years)… would be the...

I still remember the day when Jamie came home from work and told me he wanted to make a drastic career change. At the time, he was a finance manager at a dealership and was making some pretty amazing money. We were used to living it up! Ha! But, his current career just wasn’t his passion. He was extremely passionate about golf and extremely good at it, I might add. He shared with me that he’d like to go to school to become a Golf...

I’m driving home from a doctor’s appointment and I see a homeless man on the side of the road. This isn’t uncommon here in Colorado, but it hits me really hard that he has nowhere to go. I feel so bad for him! I start crying and can’t seem to stop. Tears cloud my vision and I’m grateful for a stop sign so I can try to pull myself together.
This is my life. I cry. About everything. WHY, you...
