I've been posting a little more regularly so I decided to create an intro post. I lurked all through my pregnancy but didn't start posting until a few months ago. Better late than never right?
I am 26 (27 at the end of July). My husband will be 27 on Sunday. We are high school sweethearts and have been together for over 10 years, married for 3. This is our first child and she was born August 5th at 6:00am. 6lbs, 13oz and 19 1/2in. I chose to join the July board because she was born early August and the August board is super dead.
I have worked in retail for 10 years, almost 8 at the same company. I currently work in the apparel section, meaning I sometimes work in the infant department. I get to learn about new baby products and of course get to look at the adorable clothes. I was made a department manager about six months before I got pregnant and stepped down the week I came back from maternity leave after deciding that daycare wasn't going to work for us. Best decision I could have made. I love knowing that when I'm not with her, my husband is. We're so lucky that we have been able to manage with such a drastic pay decrease.
In my spare time, I enjoy crafting. Especially sewing. I like being able to make exactly what I want when I can't find it or I can make it cheaper. It was so hard to find a girly purple and green crib bed set that wasn't $100 and I was able to make a quilt and bed skirt for $30 and still have fabric left over.
I also enjoy cooking/baking and trying out things I find on pinterest.
I can't wait to post more on here and get to know everyone a little better. Thank you for reading.
