but my family and friends usually call me missy.
i'm the writer of this blog, determined to document our life so we can remember it all when we are old and grey.
i'm currently working full-time as a registered nurse on an orthopedic and trauma floor.
my favorite foods are cheese, ranch, and most all baked goods.
i have learned to love working out to ensure that i can eat as much as i want of the previously mentioned foods.
i'm also an incredible book worm... i love to read and get very attached to the characters in my books.
i am head over heels in love with my husband, dawson, and obsessed with our pup dash.
i absolutely love my life and consider myself one of the luckiest girls in the world.
he is very patient and puts up with me taking a few too many pictures for this blog.
he is currently working at a company called domo in tech sales.
i try to explain to people what he does, but it's probably better if you just ask him.
he is the rainman of cars and can tell you anything about any car in the world
(as well as snowmobiles, boats, motorcycles, etc.).
he is freakishly organized and has never lost anything in his life.
he is the best thing that's ever happened to me and i don't know what i'd do without him.
we most definitely can't forget about him.
he is the world's best dog (in my humble opinion).
he is our first child and we love him with our whole hearts.
he has made dawson a dog lover by playing fetch with him for hours, never barking or peeing in the house,
and making us feel like the most awesome people in the world any time we walk in our door.
