About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

One CRAZY Night!

Last night was not a fabulous night! I came home from work, and got dinner started. I had boiled potatoes, and went to drain them and spilled boiling water on my leg and burned myself pretty badly. I know . . . not the sharpest tool in the shed to spill boiling water on myself.

In the meantime, Andy has worked a million days in a row in order to take some time off for a vacation. He is extremely tired after working 10 days in a row, 13 hour shifts. Last night, he came home to a burned wife, and had to take care of everything, which ruined his plans of going to bed early. Well, we finally got to sleep, and the fire alarm went off. It rang for a minute, and then turned off by itself. We went back to bed after we inspected everything, but it happened again, and again, and again. By 12:30, we were sick of the problem. After some quick internet research, Andy learned that there might be some dust in some of the alarms. So, he went downstairs, and cleaned them all out, and the problem was solved. Well, since it was so late, and he had to be up in a few hours to go to work, I know he didn't get too much sleep last night. The good news . . . Ethan slept through the entire ordeal of the fire alarm ringing frequently last night!

Needless to say . . . I'm grateful for my hubby and the sacrifices he makes for our family! Love you babe!
