Meet and Greet

Hello all! I am Lacey and this is my first ever blog post! First and foremost, I am a Christian saved by God’s grace.  Without him, who knows where I would be!  I am a bit of a nerd.  I love budgets and spreadsheets.  In fact, that is pretty much what I do for a living. I spend my days playing with spreadsheets to estimate costs, make budgets, and help manage them.  I am very thankful for my job!  My husband calls me cheap but I just say that I love saving money.  Every once in awhile I get in a couponing mood and will do that but I really just buy off brand or sale stuff.  Besides the essentials, I hardly ever buy anything unless it is on sale!  I love consignment. I would love to own my own consignment store one day. I am always checking out the local consignment shops, used clothes websites, and online yard sales.  I am sure I will have a whole other post someday about this topic.  I like to cook even though I don’t get to as much as I would like.  I love trying new recipes and rarely cook the same things more than a few times.  There are just too many other good things out there!  I don’t get home from work usually until about 5:30 or so, so our suppers are usually quick and convenient meals.  My crockpot is my favorite thing in my kitchen and Pinterest is my favorite place to go to find recipes!   I haven’t found a bad recipe on there yet!  But enough about me…

The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful family.  My husband, Jarrod, was my high school sweetheart.  We met through mutual friends and pretty much dated all through high school (besides our occasional “break ups” that would last a few weeks).  I was a year ahead of him in school so I graduated and went on to play softball at Calhoun which was a whole 10 minutes from his house!  The next year he joined me at Calhoun where he played baseball.  We had some of the best times during those few years at Calhoun and shared most of the same friends.  We got married a couple of years later in 2009.  Jarrod is your stereotypical southern Alabama man.  He loves to hunt and fish, watch football and baseball, play ball, play guitar, and reminisce about Friday night football and baseball championships.  He works maintenance but I tell him all the time that he should’ve been a car salesman or work at a pawn shop because he is always buying and selling things but that’s a whole other topic as well!  Jarrod is a wonderful husband.  He helps with the laundry and even does the dishes!  I can’t even imagine anything better than that!  He is great.  He takes care of us and loves us.  He comes from a great family and is truly my best friend.  I am so thankful for my husband!

We are proud parents to the most wonderful little two year old!  Hadley Elizabeth was born July 2010 (yes that is only 13 months after we got married).  She is the most energetic, fun-loving, entertaining, funniest blonde hair, blue eyed, little girl I know.  She definitely brings a smile to my face every day!  She loves Elmo, Barney, dress up shoes, doll houses, go-gurt, purses, climbing, dancing, and chocolate milk more than anything!  She is one very loved little girl by all and brings so much joy to our lives! And... she is going to be a big sister in March!  We are so excited to be adding another little girl to our family.  Hadley already wants to hug her and kiss her and is so sweet to her baby sister.  She is going to be a great big sister!

Anyways, this is just a little introduction to me and my little family.  I just wanted to start this blog as somewhat of a journal of my life.  Time goes by so fast that I just sometimes want to freeze time to sit down and enjoy it more!
