Well Hello there!
I have decided to do Friday introductions with the thetinytwig and jessaconnelly on instagram to say hello and tell everyone a little about me! Well I found out fast I had a lot to say so I decided to make it into a blog post. So here we go…
My name is Jennifer and welcome to my own little fairytale. I am known to live in my own little world, mostly because I am super socially awkward. I am good once you get to know me, but I am terrible at meeting people and always come off super nerdy!
I love, LOVE and give all of mine to the two men in my life, my very own Prince Charming, Ryan and my sweet son, Timothy. They are my whole world and I can’t get enough of them. Ryan and I were married in 2006 and we have been having the best time ever since. I am so lucky to call him my husband but also so lucky to call him my best friend! In 2010 we added Timothy to the mix and my whole world got flipped upside down, he is the best thing that has ever happened to Ryan and me. He is funny and sweet and has the best imagination, I love watching him grow into the person he is going to become.
I am a wife and stay at home mom just like I always wanted to be. I have the best mom and she was home with me when I was young and I always knew if it was possible that it is what I wanted to do. When Timothy was born I was working, I had gone from full-time to part-time and Ryan’s mom and nana watched him, I always felt terrible about leaving him, I was lucky enough to get to leave him with two amazing people who love him to the moon and back but I was still missing him. Well two years ago my world was flipped upside down again when the company I worked for was sold; I was so sad and happy and scared all at the same time. Sad about leaving a true family that I worked with, happy to know that I was able to stay at home, and so so so scared to go down to one income. There were so many questions about what we were going to do. I have to say financially is hasn’t been the easiest but in time and still we were realizing when you budget correctly it all works out. And now life is so awesome, I can’t imagine not being there with Timothy everyday because even if it’s one of those days (and you SAHM know what I am talking about) it’s still the best day every.
I love to paint, draw and create. I have been creating my whole life, from learning how to wood carve at the age of 13 to my favorite ART teacher in school to telling me I was a true artist to my not so favorite professor telling me I had no idea what I was doing, (ill show the piece of art work one day that she said that about) it was devastating to me and it was only a STILL. Anyway that was the long time ago, now I use my talents to make cool things for Timothy and have fun with it.
I also have a dark side (insert evil villain laugh) where I love to watch trashy reality TV, drink wine and gossip with all my friends! Oh and I’m kind of messy, but most creative people are, RIGHT?
Oh and one more thing did I mention I’m obsessed with ALL things Disney!! Walking down main street USA and seeing the castle still can bring me to tears and I have been there over 200 times. Also I have secretly always wanted to be a Disney Princess, and I know that is every little girl dream but I just never grew out of it. We have stayed in almost every hotel on Disney property (that’s on my bucket list) When Ryan and I met he liked Disney but he has grown into a true Disney Nerd like myself! With my love for Disney I have also have become a Run Disney wannabe! We love a good Disney race, I have finished 5ks and 10ks at the Walt Disney World Resort and attempted the Disney Princess Half Marathon, made it to mile 8 but this princess isn’t upset, it just means I have to work a little harder next time! My Prince Charming on the other hand has completed the Glass Slipper Challenge (19.3 miles) and also completed the Dopey Challenge (48.6) this past January, he is the most amazing guy ever! And I could not be more proud of him!
We take imagination to a whole new level in our house! There is never a dull a moment! From fighting Pirates to wishing on stars through our skylight (it’s my fave thing to do with Timothy) we have so much fun! Timothy has turned his love for Captain Hook and switched gears to Batman. I have to say I was a little sad when our house went from Neverland to Gotham City but it has been just as much fun to play Poison Ivy as it was to play Tiger Lily.
This is my life! And it’s a great one!
Oh and one more thing, yes I say fairytale life a lot, that is not because I have a perfect life, there has been lots of Villains and lots of dragons to fight to get where I am today, I say it because, like everyone else I just hope for a happily ever after.
