30 Day Blog Challege - Day 1

It has been quite a while since I actually posted anything of my own and I am always telling myself that I need to update my blog so when I saw this on Molly’s blog, I decided to jump on board and see if I it would help to get me back in the habit of posting. Feel free to join in as well!

I’m a day behind so I’m going to do two today to get caught up! Here’s the first.

Introduction, Recent Picture and 15 Random Facts about Me!

My name is Lacey. I’m a 28 year old wife and mother to two adorable boys – Hunter, 20 months and Bodey, 3 months. I am a full-time working mom that is constantly struggling to find the perfect balance between wife, mother and employee.

This is a picture of my husband Chad and me taken at my High School Ten Year Class Reunion last month.

15 Random Facts:

1. I am obsessed with baby products and baby websites. My husband nearly had to stage an intervention with me after we received three packages from babysteals.com in one week.
2. I could easily live the rest of my life eating nothing but cherry Pop-tarts and drinking diet coke (though I can’t imagine my life would be too long on that combination)
3. I have worked for the same company for almost 6 years and just in the last few months actually started my “career.”
4. Snow skiing terrifies me but my youngest son is definitely named after a professional skier.
5. The song “The Boys of Fall” by Kenny Chesney makes me cry because it makes me think about my boys growing up and playing football and I get sad just thinking that they’ll be old enough to do that before we know it – assuming they WANT to play football.
6. My “Dream” Christmas list for this year includes such things as: A new mattress, new living room carpet, having my living room, kitchen, foyer and hallway painted, and a maid.
7. My “Real” Christmas list for this year includes such things as: Grey Uggs, a pair of Toms, a Dyson vacuum, and a maid.
8. I am extremely close with my family and I really take pride in the relationship that my husband has with them as well.
9. I am head over heels in LOVE with my boys (Chad included). I often find myself just sitting back and thanking God for giving me this perfect little life.
10. We are pretty sure we are done having kids because I am terrified of raising a girl so we don’t want to risk it!
11. I really and truly wish that I liked to cook and clean. I know how to do both, and know how to do them well, but HATE doing them so neither one gets done very often!
12. I would love to learn how to bake and decorate adorable sugar cookies with flooded icing that everyone would ooooh and aaaah over. Perhaps I should add Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer to my Christmas List (note: this is the first year it hasn’t been on my list for the last 5)
13. I am a proud aunt to a silly 4 year old, a hysterical 2 year old and a beautiful 1 month old (tomorrow!)
14. My first job ever was as a summer janitor at an elementary school. Really.
15. I have HORRIBLE HORRIBLE road rage. I am convinced that some people are on the road specifically to piss me off – and they do an excellent job!

I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the next 29 days…


  1. Lol Cherry Poptarts and Diet Coke! You and my husband should have married. He loves poptarts and actually throws a temper tantrum when we run out.

    Glad to see you're back!!!

  2. 1- LOVE the new blog background!

    2- If you figure out the secret to sugar cookies, would you mind sharing?

    3- Girl you look GREAT for just having a baby not that long ago, sheesh!

  3. Found your blog through the challenge! I've been dying for some Grey Uggs as well...but I have a feeling I'll be buying myself some "fuggs" instead. Just can't justify the real thing! Looking forward to following along the next 30 days.

    PS I'm from Kansas too!

  4. So glad that you are participating!I too am obsessed with baby stuff but the problem with that is I am not married and am not pregnant...I do have lots of fun spoiling my 2 God daughters though! Just wanted to let you know that there will be a new linky up for each day when you go to do day 2! Looking forward to getting to know you over the next month!
