Hello and welcome!

Here is my blog! I will write in here about all manner of things from being a mommy to car stuff to my beliefs. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. I'm going to do my best to write at least every few days but with the baby and the work we'll see. Let's see... I guess I'll start by telling you a little about myself.

I am, first and foremost, a wife and stay-at-home mom. I love taking care of my husband and son. I never thought I would want to be a stay-at-home mom, but from the moment I looked into Gage's face, I knew there was no one better suited to raise our son than me. So here I am!! I am an automotive fanatic. If it has wheels I probably am interested in it. Currently I drive a Subaru Impreza Outback. It's a pretty cool little car, a little slow but good on snow and ice. Our other car is a beautiful titanium pearl Maxima. If you know me, you know my husband, Brian, and I used to have matching grey Maximas. The other was grey lustre. We sold it to move here because we really wanted an AWD something. So now a grey Subaru and a grey Maxima. The Subaru needs a little love but that's kind of hard in the dead of winter with a baby so... hopefully come springtime I can clean it up a bit.

Speaking of moving here, Brian and I recently moved back to Colorado from Albuquerque. I'm from here; he was born in Arkansas and raised in New Mexico. He moved to CO some years ago, then about 9 years ago we met. The rest, as they say, is history. Reason for moving back to CO from NM? The job market primarily. We had a house in NM so it was a little awkward trying to unload that in a recession. We actually still have a house in NM. Maybe tomorrow I'll tell you about that. It has been a rather unfun process.

So if we have a house in NM but live in CO, how do we afford it? We live with my parents. In their basement, to be exact. It has been a struggle for all three of us (four if you count our pup, Chevy) but we're making it through. And the house debacle is almost cleared up, so we're moving into our very own apartment next month! Trust me when I say we can't wait.

I'm a Christian and I love God. I feel His hands in my life every day and His blessings are upon me. I often am not the best Christian I can be, but I keep trying, and with His Grace I'll keep improving. I need His help every day!!!

I write for a magazine that I won't tell you the name of, at least not publically. If you're really interested, email me and I'll tell you, but I don't want this blog at all affiliated with the magazine. It's a car magazine, and not a very big one. I CAN tell you it isn't Car and Driver or Motor Trend.

I guess that's about all I'll bore you with for now! Tomorrow I'll tell you about our house in NM. It's a funny story if you're a fan of tragedy. It has been such a nightmare that all I can do is laugh about it. If you feel like it, say hi! Introduce yourself to blog me. And have a wonderful day!
