I'm a thirtysomething (I remember when my mom watched that show) new mom to W, my amazing little man, who was born in December 2010. I've been married for nearly three years and met my wonderful husband, J, on Yes, internet dating can work. Actually, I know a number of couples who have found love and are happily married as a result of meeting online. I've always thought a little outside of the box. Our little family is rounded out by my mother (who is a blessing to us all) and our pups, a rat terrier and a boston terrier. We've got a pretty good thing going so far!

I got into blogging when I found out I was pregnant and wanted to document my pregnancy. I had dabbled in a blog about married life before then but that was abandoned when I turned 30 and suddenly heard my biological clock ticking. There were two things I knew even before we started trying to conceive. One was that I wanted to cloth diaper and the second was that I wanted to have a gender neutral bedding setting with primary colors. If we found out we were having a little girl I didn't want to go crazy with the pink (one of my favorite colors) and regret it later. So before I even got my big fat positive, I had purchased a bedding set and was researching cloth diapers. After the initial feeling of being completely overwhelmed, I got into the groove of reading blogs and discovered blog giveaways. From then on, I was hooked!

I planned on having a natural, med-free labor and delivery, cloth diapering, exclusively breastfeeding, and babywearing. Of course, I planned to do all of this while working full time! Not everything has gone exactly as I planned, but I'm learning to roll with the punches as I try to figure out my formula for motherhood. Now my house has been taken over by baby gear and there is always laundry to be done, but every day I'm putting together a new piece of the puzzle!


  1. Boy, is that true about motherhood- nothing goes as planned and we will die trying to make our plans work. Found you from Smart and Trendy moms follow on friday!

  2. I met my hubby on, too! And I have a December baby, born in 2008. :)

  3. Now this is a mommy blog I can read! Insightful and down to earth about parenting rather than the stuff often seen. Definitely following you now on my journey to conceive with my husband. I found you through The Catacombs Society.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my page, I'm your newest follower via GFC! I will be taking part on Sunday again! Talk to you soon!


  5. Your story is SOOO similar to mine! Met my hubby on Match as well. Married in 2007 and welcomed our son in January 2011. I too work full time. So glad to have found your blog via the Makobi Scribe blog hop! I'll be following via GFC. Cheers! :)

  6. Your story is similar to mine, too, except that we didn't meet on (but no judging for those that do!). We are trying for our first, and we already know we will cloth diaper and want a gender neutral crib set in primary colors lol.

    Also, I saw on your Twitter that you're in Houston! I am in Houston as well! :o)


Thanks for stopping by FormulaMom! I love hearing from my readers and do my best to reply to everyone!
