Where to begin?

I have had so much fun lately reading other people's blogs that I thought I would try out having my own. Here is a little history about me. . . about 13 years ago, I met my wonderful husband in Nauvoo, IL. We were both dancers in the City of Joseph pageant there. We were married in 1998 in the Chicago, IL temple and have enjoyed our time together since. We are blessed with 3 children and a work in progress. :) In other words, we will have another baby in May. I don' t know what we are having yet, but am very anxious to find out. So are the kids. "Goose" as we call him, is my oldest, he is 7 years old, and he wants a brother! "Sweetie" fits her nickname perfectly, and she is hoping for another sister (she's 5). Tank has been the baby of the family. I'm not sure she knows what is going on yet, but she LOVES babies, so I'm not too concerned. She is 2, but turns 3 this February.

Thats my family. A little more about ME. . . I suppose many people would call me crafty. I love crafts of all kinds. For a while I was hooked on scrapbooking, although I must admit digital cameras have sort of stalled that love of mine. I have ventured into sewing and quilting, but my true craft love has evolved over time to be flowers. My Mom is a florist, so I guess the love of flowers is inherited. My favorite thing to do with flowers is to grow them, press them, and turn them into art. I make people, landscapes, buildings, homes, and whatever else I can think of all with flowers. It is very rewarding for me.

So, I am a mom and I am an artist. I also work for a doctor. That is another love of mine. I got my bachelors degree in Community Health, but wish I had gone for a nursing degree. I hope to go back someday. In the meantime, I do a lot of the same things as the nurses in my office for less pay. LOL. I suppose thats life.

With all of that on my plate, I have little time for anything else. I hope blogging will fit in with it all! :)
