About Me & My Family

Who am I?

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don’t have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I work full time (and then some, sometimes), I have way too many bills (don’t we all) and I really don’t have any interesting hobbies (wasn’t always that way, I grew up riding horses)

I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. It isn’t and was not always easy. My pregnancy came as a birth control failed surprise for a man who never wanted his own children (and is now the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for out local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don’t realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can’t wait to spend forever with him.

My kids….they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids – 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 10, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 8 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 6 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary. Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad.
