Welcome Getting to know you readers!

I was totally surprised to check today and see that I was Lynnette's "Getting to Know You"featured blogger today!

So welcome to my little part of the world, I am so happy to have you here! As Lynnette mentioned I just returned from a 7 day cruise to the Caribbean with my boyfriend's family, and tomorrow will be on the road again, to spend the holidays with my family.

Just a quick glimpse into this blog and my life. The past year has been crazy, we used to live in Pennsylvania, very far away from our family and friends but thankfully I got a new job in August and now we are back in Ohio having a lot of fun and making up for lost time. I have four brothers, ages 28,15,13, and 9 and one sister age 4 who are all amazing in their own unique ways. My mom is the most amazing woman I know and is totally my inspiration in life and I talk about her a lot on this blog (Hi Mom!) I have the greatest friends in the world (shout out to Kristen and Candy, who I know read this thing) and last but not least I have the greatest partner in crime who I share my every day adventures with, and who puts up with me on my good and not so good days, Josh, my wonderful boyfriend of 2 years.

So from our home to yours, Have a wonderful, safe Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. Hi!! So much youth and energy. Just visiting from Lynnette's blog. Wish I could go on a cruise, too, but I don't see that happening ever. Next time you get to go have a little extra fun for me. Meanwhile I will enjoy all of the camping I get to do. Cute blog!!!

  2. Hi there! Just visiting from Lynnette's Getting To Know You - your blog is really cute! Looks like you are a busy woman, but I love it! Hoping your Christmas is wonderful :)

  3. Jess, what a beautiful picture of you and your boyfriend. I love Christmas tree pictures.
    Have a most lovely day. :)

  4. Just visiting from dancing barefoot. So jealous that you got to go to Atlantis. I'm saving up and hoping to take my family this Summer.

    Merry Christmas.


  5. I loved visiting your blog today! To be honest I probably wouldn't have gone down the water slide at Atlantis. I am a chicken. I am glad you are Lynnette's featured blogger.
    Merry Christmas!

  6. Hello!

    A cruise sounds like so much fun!

  7. Merry CHRISTmas from Alaska! Stopping over from Lynnette's. I also would love to go on a cruise one day, however I want to go to Australia. I totally would of hesitated on the slide and then my loving husband would of said "go on" and I would have. Have a blessed day filled with lots of comments.

  8. Hello Jess, nice to meet you. I am visiting per Lynette. I think I would have stayed in the Caribbean somewhere...looks like a nice place to be for the Holidays. I went on an Alaskan Cruise and can't wait to go again someday. My cousin lives in Hudson, Ohio.
    Well, have a glorious Christmas and come visit me as well at Coleene

  14. Hi Jess!

    Coming your way via Lynette's "Getting to Know You" so I can wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    LOVE all the cupcake photos I'm seeing... you knew I was coming and LOVE cupcakes, right? LOL! *wink*

    I was reading your December 3 post ("If your family is crazy and you know it clap your hands"... LOL! lovely title)... ugh, I have been through things like that. And I too, sometimes have a tendency to be a *little* down on my blog. Don't worry about it. You are human, and sometimes ya just gotta let it out. What else are blogs for, eh?

    Stay safe in the storm that's going over us here in Kansas and coming your way!!

    Ho-Ho-Hoooooooo! Merrrrrry Christmas!!!! :-D
