Our Story

Welcome to our blog! Here's the quick and dirty about us:

Chad and I met on our first day of college at Utah State University. We started studying together, since we were in the same math class and lived in the same apartment building. But, those late-night study sessions quickly turned into excuses to hang out together. And that's how our story began. After two years of dating, we tied the knot on August 17, 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We currently live in Tucson, Arizona. We moved here after living in South Florida for five years, where Chad graduated from medical school and completed his internship year of residency. He is now working for the University of Arizona completing a three-year anesthesiology residency. I was fortunate enough to keep my job from Florida and now work remotely from home. I am the manager of advertising and communications for the business school at Nova Southeastern University.

And--most importantly--Chad and I are thrilled to be parents! Our little angel Reece was born on Jan. 26, 2010 and our handsome little Jace was born on June 30, 2011. We are so blessed to be the mom and dad of such darling and sweet kids.

Our Familiy

FALL 2012
Reece is our 2 1/2-year-old princess. She is mastering her letters and numbers, loves to sing and dance, and is getting smarter by the second. She loves to help mom cook, is slightly obsessed with all Disney princesses, enjoys her evening wrestle matches and games of chase with dad, loves to dance along while mom watches any dancing show on TV, and adores her "Baby Jace." There are definitely moments of not-so-nice big sister (it's hard sharing with your little brother) but she does really good most of the time. She attends Joy School every week, loves going to nursery at church, and is looking forward to her tumbling class that starts this month. She is a social little butterfly, and has a blast playing with other kids from church and the neighborhood. She likes to color and paint, play games on the computer, and wear dress-up. One of her favorite things to do right now is to be the mommy to her baby dolls. She is very sweet with them! Reece is my girlie-girl and loves to put on mom's make-up and perfume. Such a little diva!
Jace is known in our house as "The Jace Monster!" At 15 months old, he is all boy and busy, busy, busy. He loves to destroy, but is also a great little snuggle buddy. He has learned to bust-a-move...bouncing and spinning around the second he hears music of any kind. This stage is exhausting but super fun. His little personality is starting to show...he is happy by nature, with a smile to melt your heart and a laugh that is contagious. Poor little Jace wants to run and play all day long although he is not quite coordinated to do all the things he wants...which usually results in about 20 crashes/falls/bonks/spills a day. But our little bruiser won't let a few bumps slow him down! He is getting more verbal (which is good and bad!), and can say ball, dog, boo, mama, and a whole lot of jibber-jabber that no one understands. Oh, and I can't forget to mention his hi-pitched squeal! He loves balls, and has become quite the little slam-dunker. He is pure fun!
