About Angie

image

Hi, I’m Angie or Angela or Ang, lol. One day one of my dearest friends said to me, “You’re one of my best friends and I don’t know what name you liked to be called?” I laughed and said I don’t know… I guess Ang. It really doesn’t matter to me, everyone calls me something different. If you ask my mom, it’s Angela, but my hubby usually says Ang unless he’s trying to get my attention then he yells ANGELA (I need some toilet paper, bwhahaha). I would say most people call me Angie.

This is from 2011 it’s time to take new family photos

I was born, raised and still live in the same town today and I love it! I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart, Ryan and mother to 3 amazing boys. We love our community and are so grateful to be raising our family here. I never imagined my kids getting big enough to be teenagers and now I have two. It’s so weird when your babies get bigger than you. My oldest is 17 and is 6’3”… 6’3” I still can’t believe it. My second son has just entered into the teen years and is 13. Every day he wakes up I think he looks like he grew over night. My baby is no longer a baby anymore as he just had his first double digit birthday “10” Yikes!

We have the cutest beagle named Harley we got her when my youngest was 2 1/2 years old, so my kiddos have grown up with her. We also have a tabby cat we got a couple years ago we named Tigra, which no one ever calls her that, we call her Kitty.

I love to craft and decorate and have wanted to blog for a long time so I could have an outlet for my creativity. It’s kind of scary and a little intimidating to start a blog when there is so many great, amazing talented blogs out there. So when my friend Heidi shared the same passions and ideas as me it just made sense that we should do it together.

The Thomasson Clan at the pumpkin patch

My family has a pumpkin patch/corn maze that I help with in the fall called Thomasson Family Farm. You can find me in the Country Store where we sell home decor and sweet treats. It’s the best job, I get to be a buyer and decorate. It’s so much fun!

Some fun facts about me are:
I love Jesus
Family and friends mean the world to me
Snow skiing is my favorite sport
Water skiing is a close second

Some of my hobbies are hiking, biking, reading, crafting, decorating.

I try and workout as much as I can just so I can stay in enough shape to ski all day long when I get the chance to go.

I don’t think I could go a whole day with out a latte.

I’m always working on a project that I can’t wait to share with the next poor victim who walks through my door.

So hopefully you enjoyed stopping by because I know I’m glad you did!

Meet Heidi

image

Hey there, thanks for stopping by our little blog!  Ang and I have entertained this blog idea long enough and finally just took a leap of faith, said a prayer and jumped in.

I have been married 24 years, this June, to the man of my dreams, my high school sweetheart.  He has stuck by me through more thin than thick, he makes me laugh on a daily basis and loves me even when I can be hard to love.

We have two children, our daughter is a senior in high school this year, and headed to college in the fall .  Our son is 13 and changes almost every day. They are both such fun, loving, easygoing, smart and caring kids,  I’m not sure why I deserve to mother them.  Being a wife and mom is my favorite part about being me.  Pearl, our sweet, gentle, three year old Boston Terrier makes our family complete.

I also fly the friendly skies, serving coffee and tea in a glamorous poly-blend.  Yes, I’ve been a flight attendant for 25 YEARS (oh my that just made me sound really old) this June.  It’s been a great career and I feel blessed to have my job almost everyday I go to work.  Of course if I said EVERYDAY, this would be a lie.  Sometimes traveling at 30,000 feet includes vomit. In those minutes, I really don’t care much for my job. But overall, it’s a great gig!

Other things I LOVE:

*road biking *hiking *coffee *everything paper *crossfit *eating paleo *baking *cooking *laughing *Bible Study Fellowship *all the amazing women in my life *the beach *wine *bell peppers *the smell of suntan oil  *chococlate *the smell of the first rain after hot summer day *memories of my mom *Stabilo pens *tulips

But above all I love God and I am humbled by the love, comfort and blessings he has given me.

Picture Day

Heidi and I decided it was time to update our profile picture from our ski goggles to something hip and cute. Except I really don’t feel hip and cute lol. I’m a mom with teenagers who constantly remind me that I’m so un-cool! Because that’s what teenagers do!  No, seriously I love to craft and decorate my house and I feel pretty confident in it. When it comes to my wardrobe I kind of stress out, I think I do an ok job but it doesn’t come easy to me.

So we headed out for a shopping trip and had so much fun. We kept cracking jokes about how cute and trendy we were going to look. We found a few things that were cute but we weren’t to exited about it. Then we made it to target and I saw a picture of a model with the cutest outfit all pulled together. Ta-Da thats exactly what I needed, lol. We had so much fun pulling it all together from there. Here is what we we decided on.

This is my outfit.
