Monday: Post an intro about you, family etc.

Iím Cassie (26), was born and raised in south-central Illinois. I met my husband Andrew (27) on Yahoo messenger in February 2006. We met for the first time in person in March 2006 and have been together ever since. I knew since that first night we started talking that he would someday be my husband. So I was ready to get married much sooner than he was, and I wonít deny that I probably drove him crazy bugging him about it! We picked out the engagement ring around February 2009, but he dragged it out almost another year. He finally proposed the weekend before Christmas 2009 during a weekend trip to Chicago. Even though I knew it was going to happen, it was still perfect! We had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory at the bottom of the John Hancock tower and right out in front is this huge gorgeous Christmas tree. So after dinner we walked out there to check it out, and thatís where he asked me to marry him!

We knew we didnít want the traditional wedding, so we planned a destination wedding in Rancho Palos Verdes, California for July 11, 2010. Although planning everything over the phone and online was slightly stressful, it all worked out and we had the most gorgeous location and I loved every second of it!

We now live about 2 hours south of Chicago. I donít exactly like living here, and I'm hopeful we'll move in the next year, but weíre stuck here at least until we get our house projects finished. Andrew and I both work at the same company. Itís at a major insurance corporate building. I am an administrative assistant and he is a software engineer. We have our sweet little westie, Max. He will be three in May. Heís been a good practice baby for us! haha

I have always wanted to be a mom. I was ready to start our family after getting married, but the hubby wanted to wait. Weíve decided that Iíll be a stay at home mom when we have our little ones, and he wanted us to save up just a bit more, so we'd be set for that to happen. I also think he just wasn't quite ready for it, but once we started trying back in October, I know he's as excited about a baby as I am now. He's been a really good support through this process, too. I just hope our wait won't be much longer!

Tuesday: Post 20 facts about yourself.

1. I consider myself to be pretty crafty. I love doing all sorts of crafts. I had an Etsy store for awhile and although it didn't work out, it was still fun.

2. I grew up doing gymnastics on and off from age 3 until about 14. It was so much fun! I loved it and hope that I have girls so I can enjoy it again with them.

3. I am a fruit fanatic! I could snack on fruit all day if it wasnít so expensive. I'm looking forward to getting pregnant so I can tell DH I have an excuse to eat lots of it! haha

4. I also love peanut butter and believe it makes any food better. Waffles, rice cakes, pancakes, yum!

5. I started entering online sweepstakes last Spring and decided earlier this year to start my own product review & giveaways blog. I also have a personal blog. Both links are in my siggy if you're interested in checking them out.

6. Iím addicted to technology and canít imagine living without it. The internet especially!

7. I love animals. My dream would be to own a bunch of land so we could have lots of room and I could have a horse. That will never happen though, but would be a lot of fun!

8. I can't wait to see the Hunger Games movie this weekend!

9. I've just recently started getting into photography. We got a Canon Rebel last month, so I'm still learning all the features. It's kind of overwhelming, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it.

10. I actually started out going to school for Cosmetology and even got my license, but never got a job doing it. I regret that now.

11. I love planning vacations. Iím a super planner. We're going on a big family vacay in 2 weeks to Arizona. I can't wait!

12. I have only been out of the country once and that was on our cruise to Mexico last year.

13. I still donít have a passport. I would love to go to Europe and definitely will someday!

14. I love fixing up our house. Weíre currently remodeling our basement. Well, my husband and his dad are doing all the work right now. Once they have the walls up Iíll paint and make some curtains and such.

15. I love musicals. I've seen Phantom of the Opera and Wicked on Broadway in New York.

16. I absolutely hate working out, other than taking walks out on the trail. I'm loving the walks out in this gorgeous weather we're having lately!

17. And I absolutely hate winter in general. I hate being cold. Remind me again why I live in the Midwest?! We actually had a pretty mild winter this year, so I can't complain too much.

18. I like to play tennis with my husband, but I have some back issues, so have to be careful not to overdo it too much.

19. I absolutely love being with my family and I hate that they are 2 hours away and I donít get to see them nearly enough. I miss them!

20. I cannot WAIT to become a mom!
