I met Bobby when I was a junior in high school while we were lifeguards at the same pool. We went on our first date in 2005 and have been together ever since! We were married in a perfect ceremony on August 6, 2010.
I am a middle school teacher, while my hubby works for an insurance company in town. I love to do all things crafty -- scrapbooking, making cards, painting, making jewelry, and just about anything else you can think of that involves spending time and money at Hobby Lobby. I'm also a big fan of cooking, and love to try new recipes whenever possible.
Besides teaching, I also coach a swim team in town and have been doing that for nearly 8 years now. I love it! I swam competitively from age 5-18, so it's something that is more of a hobby for me and less of a job.
I'm originally from Wisconsin, so I love beer, brats, and the Green Bay Packers! I was lucky enough to find a man from Illinois who is almost as big of a Packers fan as me.
We adopted our puppy, Zeke, on August 30, 2010. Zeke is a Pit Bull and honestly the sweetest dog I've met in my life. After all of the bad stuff that happened to him before we adopted him, I really don't know how he is as sweet as he is. He had a bad start to life, but we're so happy that he chose us for his forever home. Bobby and I try hard to change people's perceptions of Pit Bulls by showing off Zeke and his snuggly, loving, and accepting personality.
