A little about the Jem's of the south sound...

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I will start off by saying I am VERY excited to have FINALLY started my own blog.  I feel I have a lot of tidbits, or as I like to think of them little "gems", rolling around in my head that need a spot to be highlighted and put to good use.  I am so happy to be sharing them with all of you.  I have committed myself to becoming a savvy saver/shopper recently, and I would love to pass those savings I find on to you.  Its been tough getting by in this economy and we recently came to the conclusion, because we still like to enjoy life's little pleasures, we are going to have to do something to stretch our dollars.   We would also LOVE to take a family trip to Disneyland and in order for that to happen, we must PINCH THOSE PENNIES!   First things first though..

Let's start off with somethings about myself.  I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a wife.  I have two wonderfully amazing boys, and an equally (if not more so) amazing husband.  We reside in the south sound of Washington state.  Our life consists of all the crazy joys that come along with two boys, one of whom is 8 years old and the other is almost 1 year old.  The boys themselves provide us with hours of entertainment, but we also enjoy exploring parks in the area, going for walks, enjoying our neighborhood and neighbors, and visiting our local farmer's market as well as the local library.  We also enjoy being a part of our community and our son's school.

My husband and I have lived in Washington our whole lives.  Most of our family resides here as well.  My husband works in construction, which can be tough on all of us at times.  I have been blessed to be able to stay home to take care of our house and our two sons.  I have worked and gone to college until shortly before becoming pregnant with our second son.  Some other fast fun facts, I LOVE the color pink, all kinds of music, Elvis, candy, photography, Ford Mustangs, and vintage Coca-Cola memorabilia.  I am also a HUGE Huskies and Seahawks fan! 

I would love to hear feedback so please leave comments.   Let me know if there is something you would like to see here, or tell me how you feel about what you've seen.  Thanks for taking the time to read this and visit often!
