My name is Elvira. Yup that's my real name :)
I was a mostly SAHM to a sweet baby girl, Chloe. She was born in September of 2011. We spend all day cuddling and having a blast. People are always asking me "what I do all day" and I just smile. I get to watch my munchkin grow and learn new things every day. I even love her when she's incredibly crabby. :)
After over 2 years I'm going back to work full-time. I'm excited for this new chapter in my life but will miss my lazy days with Chloe.
Of course, none of that would be possible with the love of my life, Jared. He's a ginger. Thankfully... Chloe is not. Jared is the sweetest man you could ever meet. I always describe him as that super amazing guy in a romantic-comedy movie that is made up. Well Jared is just like that. I could never have survived my pregnancy without him! I am in love with an amazing man... He has helped me become the person that I am today and he is the reason that I wish to be better. He is my soulmate.
We got married in Estes Park on April 23rd. We left Chloe with his mom and dad for a week! Oh my goodness. We missed her so much but it would be weird to bring a baby to a honeymoon! :) Yeah we did things a little backwards, and I love it.
As you can see I'm pretty obsessed with these two people in my life. They will always come first.
My other loves are quilting and cooking. I have a shop on Etsy with baby quilts. I started it when I was very sick and pregnant with Chloe. It was something I could do and not leave the house between throwing up 15 times a day or so. I LOVE it! http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllPatchedUpQuilts
Oh how I love to cook and bake! I always say I'm going to own a restaurant some day. That would be amazing. In the mean time I'm know for making delicious dinners for my family and friends. Their favorites are my homemade pizza, enchiladas, chicken parm, and Croatian food.
Oh yeah... I'm Croatian. I moved here in 1999 with my family. I have so much family back in Croatia that I miss every day. My parents are divorced and they sound like Russians! I dropped that crazy thick accent years ago!
At my blog you will find me talk about being a SAHM, a wife, quilting, cooking, and more.
This is me :)
We look forward to our date nights
Our sweet Chloe
Look at those rolls!
