Taking the Plunge

I've been an avid mommy blog reader for a while now. It all started with Mandey. You see, I'm also an avid Baby Center Birth Board lurker (and occasional poster). My little boy was born the same month as Mandey's adorable twins and I saw the link to her blog in the profile of a comment she made once. It only took one read and I was hooked. Soon I discovered Top Baby Blogs and the rest of the mommy blogging community. I constantly catch myself reflecting on things throughout my day thinking, "I could blog about that" and then realizing that I do not, in fact, have a blog. So, here I am to remedy this problem.

I suppose I should introduce myself. I'm Shannon. A 20-something stay-at-home mom to Bennett, who is 14-months-old, wife to Matt for almost 5 years. We live in smalltown, Iowa. Matt is the youth pastor at our church and also an assistant manager at a local grocery store. He is a fantastic husband and daddy. Life is good. Here is a recent picture of us taken at Easter at my grandparent's house.

Matt is easily 6' 3" and I am a whopping 5' 2". Yes, I am standing on my tippy toes to make it into the picture. Who hopes Bennett gets his daddy's height? Me, that's who.

Well, I guess we'll see if this blog ends up going anywhere. If anything, it will act as a great journal of sorts to look back on. Oh, and if anyone can give me some advice with that stinking header, I'd really appreciate it. I messed with it for over an hour to try to get it to fit right and couldn't figure it out.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog!! Welcome to the community! :)

  2. Yay! I guess I should delete your old blog then?
