When I first started blogging, Steph started following me early on. Her blog was crazy pink and all-girl, while mine was all-boy. We lived close to each other so the next time my family headed their way, we met up. It was my first blog meet-up… And it felt surprisingly natural. We went her direction again and met up again, and again in Chi-Blogo, and again in KC, and again, and now once again. Our kids are getting to be friends and Matthew remembered Chloe this time when we told him where we were going this weekend.
Fun stuff – and special!
We usually struggle to get good photos of our kids together, especially now that there are four of them (wow!). This time, we got a decent photo of all four kids together! I feel lucky! But if we hadn’t gotten a good photo this time, there wouldn’t have been anything to worry about since we’ll be back again!
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Speaking of meet-ups…. when are you coming to Omaha?

Ooh, if Heather is coming to Omaha, we might just have to coordinate a trip up there! I’d love for our families to meet and I know the kids would enjoy the zoo up there.

We just booked our hotel for September! I was telling Steph at dinner tonight that we’ll be seeing you in a couple of months. We cant wait!

Which hotel? Text me!

Now that my BFF & my brother & his family live near Steph I’ll have to coordinate trips with you 😊😊
June 13, 2014 at 10:26 pm
Yes, yes, yes!

Ditto, yes yes!

Love you guys! Chloe had fun talking about meeting up with Matthew again too even though she acted a bit shy around him. Hope the rest of your trip is fun and we’re looking forward to the next visit, whenever that may be! Oh, and I love your never header photo!
