About Me

Welcome! 

I’m Mindy. I’m 26 years old. I live in Snellville, GA with my husband (Jason, network engineer).. I have two biological children (Amelie – 6 & Luke – 6 months.) I have a step-daughter (Sarah – 9) as well.

Our family is blended and our schedules are hectic. Try getting ALL the kids together for Christmas but having TWO different custody arrangements. Fun.. I love it.. as blended and crazy as it may be. We have two cats (Rio & Malla) and I have a love/hate relationship with them.. I love them but I hate that they think my house is their giant litter box. I’m constantly cleaning cat pee or poop, oh JOY. Half the time I want to throw them out the window.. (Don’t worry animal activists.. I’m not going to. I joke.)

We recently built our home and got our keys in March.. Did I mention I also gave birth in March? I was moving from a 2 bedroom apartment into a 4000 sq feet home with a 1 week old. Can I just say how difficult it is to be nesting like a crazy pregnant mad woman but having to pack because you know you’re moving as soon as the baby is born? The worst. I never want to experience something like that again. It definitely doesn’t help that I have a Type A personality (in other words I’m OCD as crap). I’m the ONLY person in the family with a type A personality too. I’m hoping Luke gets my personality.. I’m not counting on it though. Most days I just wanna lock myself into a room and cry by how quickly the house gets messed after it takes so long to clean it. Most days I leave laundry baskets of folded clothes sitting in the living room for weeks at a time. Luke is a clingy clingy baby. I’ve had to stop writing this a million times to give him a toy that he dropped or just acknowledge his existence. Good thing he’s cute. I’m very thankful for caffeine in any form.. Coffee… soda… chocolate.  Oh & I definitely know how blessed I am but sometimes it helps to vent right? I mean.. why else would I need a blog?

I blogged a lot via LiveJournal when I was pregnant with Amelie / she was a baby and I miss blogging so that’s why I decided to start this one.. You’ll probably see me talk about my kids a lot.. You’ll see a million home tours as I change things and add things to my home decor. Remember I said we moved from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4000 sq ft home? Yeahhhh. That requires A LOT of home decor. I would shop and decorate all day but unfortunately our bank account won’t allow it! We have a long way to go but it’s coming along. It will never be finished though. There will always be some tweaking.. I mean come on, how could I say “OKAY.. I have enough home decor. I’m finished!” Yeah, those words will never come out of my mouth. You’ll sometimes see recipes I try and document but I gotta be honest, most of the time I end up grabbing fast food for dinner or ordering take out. I’m CONSTANTLY trying to stop doing that so much but sometimes it really is the life saver when you’re super tired (which is always with a 6 month old.) I remember the days I slept 12 hours straight. HA. My body is happy to get 4 hours straight these days (those days are rare too.) I’m blessed. I’m blessed. I’m blessed. Ha. You’ll see me post my photography which I’m very slowly trying to teach myself. My husband is a photographer as well but I don’t enjoy lessons from him because he always tells me things like “Don’t use manual, you don’t need it.” Psh.. I like to think outside of the box, okay? If I wanna use manual, you better believe I’m using manual.. So I’ll teach myself. Men.. they are always right. I know you agree with me.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and read my about me page. I hope you stay, read, comment, follow. I’m always open for suggestions on ANYTHING you’d like to see me blog about as well… Now, I gotta go cause the baby ran out of Gerber Puffs (don’t you love those?) so he’s starting to whine again…
