WOW! This week marks one year since we uprooted our “normal” pretty comfortable life to embark on this new adventure of college. my husband had a very nice job working for the family business. It allowed me to stay home with GG and it paid for things like a fancy gym membership and our nice home. But, I knew that this was not my husbands dream. Since he was a little boy he dreamed of being an engineer. Having a job and paying his own bills since the age of 15; going to a “real” college to actually accomplish this dream was out of the question. Until he married me! HA!
So…about 5 years into our marriage he decides to go back to school and attempt engineering (the school he enrolled did not have an engineering degree). Trucking along to do what he could at this school all while working full time so I wouldn’t have to work he sort of gave up hope. Making a rash decision, he changed his major to accounting. The man HATES math! Its now summer time. I decide to have a little heart to heart to see what his true goals were at the end of this. Fast forward to August of 2014, he drops out of college! What?!
I remember one day after work I asked if he still wanted to be an engineer and he answered, “of course, but how?”. My gears started turning and I just blurted out, “lets move!”
After working everything out we talked to our parents and told them our plan. We rented our house out to the first person who saw it and not long after we found a rental in our new home town. He got accepted into the engineering college he never thought he would ever be able to attend.
This year has been one of the toughest years on us both. He has done amazing in school all while having a family and still working on the weekends. Oh and the fact that I am pregnant hasn’t made it any easier. But we both know a couple of years from now all of the long days, late nights and the many pennies we have counted will be SO worth it. I am beyond proud of that man and know he will make an amazing engineer one day soon!
So yesterday I had my monthly prenatal visit and once again I am measuring about 4 weeks ahead of schedule. Twins? Could their possibly be two little ones in there? yes no maybe so I have no idea. At my first visit he did an impromptu ultrasound just to confirm there was only one but the doc is still curious so we will be doing another very soon.
It’s kind of ironic since I was put in a room covered with pictures of twins. Ha! We will find out soon enough.

First off, lets have a little intro. Hi! my name is Kayle and I reside in South Louisiana. I love decorating and redecorating; I basically move furniture on the daily just to change things up. Also, why must chocolate be so dang delicious. I am addicted to the stuff! I absolutely love being a momma to my little GG and can’t wait to bring a little brother or sister in to this world for her to help momma with me.
GG is going through a stage where one day she longs for a nap and the next she’s just not having it. I believe all moms long for that cherished moment of silence and boy when it comes around I soak it up…those moments are becoming less and less around here. We are also in the middle of potty training. She’s three and could honestly care less. Just the other day she told me “whats the point?” Well Kayle, what is the point? I mean really, she has it made in the shade. Go when you want wherever you want and mom will clean up after you. Oh silly girl one day it will happen…..please oh please be soon! Until then, momma loves you oh so much and will keep you little as long as I can.

As a mom of one and one on the way I think it is huge to try and capture those little moments that become memories. Honestly it can be very easy with all of the different social media outlets but still there is so many memories lost. I have decided to start this blog for myself to have yet another outlet filled with memories.
My little girl is three! Holy smokes these three years have flown by and so many changes have been made in our life. As I sit and watch her grown and learn new things I think of this little one growing inside me. I realized, these days are honestly getting so freaking short I cant keep up! So I must do something. I have to have something to look back on to relive these little moments and these big days of doing nothing…..or something. Lets do this!
