I am from a small town in Mississippi. I spent many years working in the telecommunications industry at a small privately owned cellular provider.  I held many positions while with that company including Customer Service Representative, Customer Contact Center Supervisor, Telesales Center Supervisor and Customer Service Coordinator.  After leaving the telecommunications industry I moved into consumer lending and held the position of Branch Account Executive II for a nationwide consumer lender.  During that I time I became pregnant with my 3rd child.  My pregnancy was uneventful for the most part.  I began having contractions several months early.  I was put on medication to stop the contractions and light duty.  I didn't go on full bed rest.  During this period I left the workforce. 

I am currently a stay at home mom to 3 wonderful, energetic sometimes wildly nerve wrecking little munchkins. I am married to a great father that works in the financing industry for a world wide automotive lender. I have 3 dogs that are hyper, destructive and super cute along with 1 cat that is fat and lazy.  My oldest daughter recently turned 13, my son is 6 and my youngest daughter this is 2.  I intended to go back to work once our youngest turned 1 but due to her medical issues I have decided to stay at home with her until I feel comfortable with her beginning preschool.  She has been diagnosed with Sotos Syndrome, 2 CHD's, PDD-NOS along with receptive and expressive communication delays.

I began my blog as a way to bring awareness to lesser known diseases and as a way to give the world a peek into the life of a family with a special needs child.  I recently began providing product reviews for several companies through my blog and social media accounts.  Even though the majority of the products that I review are received for free, I always provide an honest and unbiased review.  As a single income family, I understand the need comparison shop and find the best deal.  I hope that through product reviews I am able to help families find new and exciting products that are beneficial to their family.

My blog also is also where I show my interest in DIY, cooking and frugal living.  I make many of our household products as a way of saving money and also to lower my family's exposure to chemicals.  I frequently share instruction on making household cleaners, craft projects, organization and cooking.

Time for the introductions!
