My Loves | Meet My Guys

Happy Valentine's Day, friends! Today I am dedicating my post to the two loves of my life, my Mister and my little love. James and Connor make my world go round, even when sometimes I'm at the point of madness. I truly wouldn't want it any other way. We have so much fun together and when it comes down to it, I am really lucky to be married to my best friend and able to stay at home and raise our only child.

James and I have been together almost 9 years (April) and married for nearly 6 (June). We meet while working for an IT training company. James is 5 years older than I am and the complete opposite of me in so many ways. I am very much the emotional part of our union while he is the logical part of our marriage. I'm all heart, he is all brains. Here are some fun facts about my Mister...
1. I was raised by my Mother and Grandmother.

2. I have a brother, Jeff, he's nine-years older than me.

3. I went to catholic school my entire life.

4. I have only ever worked in three industries, recruiting, advertising and training.

5. I've been with my current employer New Horizons since 2007. I had about 6 people on my team when I started as a local sales manager. As VP of Sales today I have just over 100 people on my team.

6. We meet at New Horizons and I was interested in Stephanie almost immediately after we met. We started dating about four-months later and have been together ever since.

7. My mother, Connie, passed away from cancer, very quickly and much too young at 59.

8. Stephanie had to leave New Horizons when I became her boss. A few years later she worked for me again at NH with approval of the CEO. He officially "fired" her on Christmas Eve, because she has just had CJ and was not returning to work.

9. It took us about two-weeks to get pregnant once we started trying. Despite the fact that Stephanie said it would probably take a year.

10. Connor an amazing boy and a great combination of his Momma and Papa.

Connor is a couple months shy of being 4.5 (how in the world?). He is the center of our lives and while I know many people warned us of this, he is truly spoiled rotten. As a forever only child he is bound to be, right? Connor is an almost Halloween baby, lover of Christmas and making messes. Here are some fun facts about CJ...

1. His favorite food is cheese and meatballs.

2. Red is his current favorite color.

3. He can't choose a best friend, he likes them all equally.

4. As of this morning, when he grows up he wants to be a race car driver.

5. His least favorite task is eating veggies.

6. When asked, he is his own hero #humble

7. Playing his with hot wheels is his favorite.

8. Scooby Doo is the only thing he wants to watch lately.

9. His all-time vacation was when he went to the beach.

10. His thankful Jesus gave him his family and friends.

I couldn't ask for a better pair of fellas in my life. This evening I get to have dinner with Connor, he picked pizza and we are going to watch Finding Dory. James is traveling for business and if I can't spend Valentine's Day with him, spending it with Connor is the next best date.
