My name is Ashley and I am a 30 year old stay-at-home mom to two spirited and loving kiddos. I would describe myself as an over-thinking type A personality who has a true love for all things fun (trips to Disney being the echelon of fun!) and a true hatred for things I deem not-so-much fun (such as cleaning and cooking). I truly enjoy spending every moment I can with my kids and husband, and feel very blessed to have this life. Oh, and if you canít tell, I also am very silly and sarcastic.


Chris, who is a hard-working chemist (on the wrong side of 35) that spends his time-off playing fantasy football, and helping me out around the house. He is a hands-on dad, which is great for me! His greatest attributes are his willingness to say yes to me, and his ability to recall vast amounts of useless information.

Here is a picture of us from our April 2010 trip. Donít have any pictures alone that isnít a silly one (well, or scary one)


Chloe, my 5 year old princess. She is a little me in every way, including her bossiness and independence. She is currently taking her third year of dance and is a first year student (ya know, kindergartener). Life is never dull with her around.


Noah, my 4 year old joker. He loves to make a joke out of anything and isnít happy until you are. He is now playing soccer for his first year and is not so sure if he likes it. He is in pre-k 4 a few times a week (which gives me my much needed free time).

Up next- Traveling to the World!
