Hey! Hey! Hey! 

I am a wife to one basketball fanatic husband, Justin. 
Mommy to two awesome little boys, Drew and Dylan. 
And now a girl mom to our little beauty, Belle.

That, my friends, is my official life tag line.

I have grown up in Southern Illinois all my life. My family is by far the most important thing to me in the world. They are my #1. They are my best friends. I live/breathe/sleep my family. I am so in love. Some say “obsessed”, but it’s a good obsession. Hehe.
I have a love for the rapper, Nelly, like no other. I have a horrible obsession with reality TV, mostly The Real Housewives and I mean ALL of them. Annnnddd well let’s just face it…any kind of reality TV is recorded on my DVR. Some have a terrible addition to coffee. I, on the other hand, have a terrible addition to fountain coke. Not just any fountain coke, a McDonald’s fountain coke in a styrofoam cup. It is what keeps me going! Ask the husband, it is bad.
 And lastly, I am an Accountant by day just dreaming about being a stay at home Mom.

But my night? Photography is my game.

Ahhh..the husband. Like I said, he is one big basketball fanatic guy. He is the head coach at a local high school. He runs his own AAU basketball program. And most recently became a trainer with PureSweat. I mean, can we add anymore basketball into our life? It's his passion. So I go along with it all. He loves teaching kids the game and then falls in love with the kids while he is at it. He is so wonderful at it. I have to admit, I am a horrible Coach's wife. It is a VERY tough position to be in. I often say I am too sensitive for this job. Only another Coach's wife would understand. But I do it for him. It is what he loves, so it becomes my life as well. 
He is also an amazing father. He not only coaches all the above but he also takes on coaching Drew and Dylan and all their friends as well. Yes, yes, yes...he cray cray.
Our life is anything but ordinary during basketball season. 

Our oldest son, Drew, is like a spitting image of his father. He loves basketball just as much as him. I have never met a child that works as hard as him. He is devoted to the game fo sho. 24/7. He also loves to play baseball. He is an amazing big brother. He is my sweet sweet child. He has such a beautiful kind heart. I get compliments on him all.the.time by how great he is. That makes my heart so so so happy. He is who made me a Mom and I will forever cherish that. He absolutely is the best thing that has ever happened to me. 

Then, there's Dylan. Our little rambunctious, ornery, little brother. He is definitely one in a million. He is such an ornery little thing. Has been since he was little. He has a love for fishing like no other. Like, it's ridic how much he loves to fish. I love that he loves it and has such a passion for it. He may be my spunky little dude, but he too has such a sweet sweet heart. He likes to hide it from others though. He can become really shy or he could be completely opposite and come and punch ya right in the gut. It's who he is and I wouldn't change him for the world. He makes us laugh and smile every single day.

Just recently we welcomed our third baby, A LITTLE GIRL. Wow! I.am.a.girl.mom. I still can not believe it sometimes. Belle has been the best blessing. She is so petite and beautiful and our whole family is just absolutely smitten with her. She absolutely completes our family. Our life is forever changed because of her and we are so blessed because of it.

That's it. That's our little family.

Love them all a million times!
