About Me

Our Wedding Day: November 5, 2016

I have always hated talking about myself and doing introductions. Let's see what I can come up with, shall we? My name is Crystal. As you can tell from the picture above, I am married and was lucky enough to find my soulmate and the most amazing man in the world. We live in east central Illinois with our infant son, 9-year-old Boston Terrier, and our 2-year-old cat. We have been through so much since we were married. We have...

► Traveled to Ireland on our honeymoon.
► Sold a home.
► Bought a home.
► Moved to a new city.
► Traveled to meet a long-time internet friend.
► Adopted a cat from an animal shelter.
► Learned we were pregnant.
► Discovered we were having identical twins.
► Lost our sweet baby boys due to an issue with their umbilical cords.
► Both gotten new jobs.
► Learned we were pregnant again.
► Discovered we were having another little boy.
► Remodeled our new house almost entirely.
► Became a one income household so I could become a SAHM.
► Had our son.

Our lives have been hectic and crazy, but there's honestly no one I would rather share my life with than my husband. We are excited for all the changes about to come into our lives.

So, a little more about me, personally... I used to work full-time in a clerical position for a local university. However, based on the cost of child care in our area, we decided I would be a stay-at-home mom once our son was born. I also went to school part-time earning bachelor's degree, but am currently taking a short break in order to raise our son. I am hoping to be able to finish my degree soon. Only fifteen credit hours remain which is about five courses. Raising my son doesn't leave me with a lot of free time, but when I have it, I love...

♥ Reading my favorite blogs.
♥ Writing in my own blogs - I currently have 3!!!
♥ Reading books - It's currently the end of November and I've read 64 books!
♥ Writing my own books - I have one solidly in the process of being written.
♥ Spending time with my family and friends.
♥ Doing home repairs.
♥ Taking a relaxing bath.
♥ Watching television or movies - I was addicted to TV, but my must-watch list is much shorter now!

Okay, this is what I have for now. I will definitely try to update this page from time to time!
