I'm Julie, the wife to Chris and mama to two sweet adorable boys, with another little one on the way in March 2013! I met my husband, Chris, before I even could drive---and yes, we are high school sweethearts! We got married in July 2006 and have moved all up and down the East Coast---although we are both originally from the good ole state of Iowa. After living in Washington, DC and the waterfront of Jersey City, NJ and the coastal town of Fairfield, CT...we have finally settled down and bought our house in NJ where my husband takes the train in and out of downtown Manhattan everyday!
Aiden, my oldest son, was born in December 2008! He is my very imaginative, creative, and highly active little sweet boy. And less than two years later, we welcomed Andrew, my second sweet boy, in November 2010. He loves everything trucks, trains, cars, and transportation related! He is my feisty second child who just adores his older brother. How we are going to add to these two wild boys is beyond me---but we will soon have to figure it out! On top of our ever-growing family, we have two dogs: Sheffield, our bichon frise, and Cobi, our shih-poo!
Before I had children, I was an elementary teacher where I was blessed to work with so many wonderful children. Right now, I am a stay at home to my two boys. I LOVE it---although it is no easy job! No day is ever the same and I can't ever predict what our day may consist of: park visits, lots of book reading, walks around the block, play dates with friends, library trips, and SO much more.
I LOVE being home with my boys, but most of my friends would describe me as a person who is most content when I am doing things. I love to run and exercise, as long as I have enough energy. I love to read, especially on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I love to do crafts---or at least attempt to! I love to decorate and organize my OLD antique house (my mom loves when I comes to visit as I am her personal organizer!). I love some ridiculous television shows. Favorites right now include Top Chef, 90210, Revenge, and Project Runway. I love to travel---most of our vacations involve visiting grandparents and extended family since we live far from everyone we know. I love spending time with friends for girls' nights out and any other excuse to take a few minutes away of being "mama"!
