You guys, I have been majorly slacking on my blogging lately. With good reason, I must say, as we have some exciting things happening that, while I am not quite at liberty to share yet, I will soon. No, not pregnant. Exciting things still though, nonetheless. Regardless of being so busy we feel like we can barely stop to take a breath, when I saw this blog challenge I decided to hop on board, because honestly, one of the areas of blogging I struggle most with is generating a schedule. I have lots of random ideas floating around in my head, and often intend to sit down to write, only to having a clingy one year old crying at my leg, or banging on the keyboard, or a husband asking me to watch a movie with him. First world problems, am I right? Usually when my blogging gets neglected, it is because family and life is happening, and those things always take priority! Still, this challenge is a great way to help me look out to the future, and keep on top of my blogging a bit more. And, as always, it is super fun for bloggers to open up a bit more and teach readers a bit more about our lives behind the scenes!

Obviously, day one is easy. I could talk about myself all day (ha ha) To cover the basics, though:
1. I am a mama to the sweetest one year old boy, and wife of two years to my husband.
2. I work in community health as a program specialist for a childhood obesity collaborative.
3. I will have my MBA degree as of December 17th (but who’s counting down , right?) I am driven and eager to grow and excel in my career.
4. I am tall. 6 feet tall. And everyone likes to point it out. I have finally learned to just embrace it and enjoy the view and fresh air up here 😉
5. My life revolves around my family, my career, and my faith. And a lot of coffee.
If you follow me on instagram, you will basically find a lot of this:
