Girl Chat {Reintroductions}

Hi friends! Today is our first Girl Chat link up of 2018!!! 

Today we're talking reintroductions

I'll dive right in...
  • My name is Lizzie
  • I'm 33
  • I live in the suburbs of Chicago 
  • I have 3 kids who are my world (Brayden 7, Ella 5. Avery 3)
  • I've been married for almost 10yrs 
  • I've known my husband since HS - we dated a couple of years then broke up and got back together
  • I started blogging in 2013 to keep a digital family scrapbook - I love that when I'm old and grey (lord willing) I will have this space I can look back on
  • I am a worrier - I worry just about everything
  • I've suffered from anxiety for years and thankfully I can keep it under control on my own
  • I am the type of person who will never feel "done" with having kids and that bothers me. I wish I could distinctly be one way or the other 
  • I'm really into true crime/murder shows. Dateline is a top fave and then numerous random shows on Investigation Discovery
  • I'm sure a lot of my worrying/anxiety comes from watching said shows but I can't stop
  • I LOVE being a stay at home Mom which is funny because before having kids I never had a desire to be one. Funny how things change
  • I LOVE food- like it's a problem. I could eat and eat like it's my job. I don't discriminate, I love all food and am probably the least pickiest eater you'll meet
  • I also LOVE the snow - it makes me so happy and when I think of the perfect vacation, there is definitely snow involved
  • This may sound 1920's, but I love being a homemaker - the one to make all the meals, keep the house clean, manages our schedules, etc. 
  • That being said, I'm not the best housewife - laundry has a terrible turnaround time and I'm not as organized as I'd like to be
  • I love being crafty and wish there was more time to fit this in
  • I'm a deal hunter - I have an obsession with finding the best deal. I even have a FB group dedicated to it
So there you have it, some fun tidbits about me! I can't wait to read all about everyone today! 

We hope you link up below! And don’t forget to follow your hosts!

  1. OMG, I CANNOT picture you as someone who didn't have a desire to have kids. I swear, you are one of the best mommas I know and I really can't even imagine that there was a time where you didn't think you even wanted to have them!! You sure are rocking that mom life! You have to be one of the most fun moms I know!

  2. Fun to learn more about you! I love that you love staying at home with the kids. So do I!

  3. I loved learning more about you today Lizzie! I am also a worrier...and can control my anxiety but it is there. I love snow and I think June Cleaver had the best job! Happy Thursday!

  4. I'm excited to be a part of this link up and getting to know everyone! I suffer from anxiety too and have thankfully gotten it under control as well, but I totally know how hard it is! I know what you mean about the kid thing ... some days I feel done and others I don't!

  5. I am with Lindsay - I would have never guessed you didn't have a desire for kids. You seem like a natural and an obviously great mom! And I love that you love being a homemaker - I totally think I would, too!

  6. I love deals, too! And worry can get the best of us all. I tend to start dwelling on things and then obsessively start vworrying about them and then I realize I have to let go and let God guide me.

  7. I loved learning more about you! I'm a worrier too and wish I could get it under control. I need to stop watching Lifetime Movies lol. I wish I had more time to be crafty too but also wish I was better at it. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  8. These are such fun posts to read about! Crime shows (and books) are some of my favorites too. I love Chicago & definitely want to visit again!

  9. Almost everyone has experienced a poor night’s sleep at one time or another, but for some people, insomnia is a regular occurrence. According to the National Sleep Foundation, about 60 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder. There are many different types of sleep disorders, and each one can have a negative impact on your health and quality of life. In this blog post, we will learn about common sleep disorders.
