All About Us



Hi! I'm Shannon, author of this blog, wife to Justin and mama to Derrick. I've been blessed with the best husband a girl could ever dream of and the toughest, funniest, most rotten litte boy ever! I love Jesus, spending time with my boys, rainy days, cooking, a clean house, being a heart mom, all things chocolate, Sonic Srawberry Limeaids, my dogs, being crafty, the Gamecocks, all things southern, American Idol, Glee, Grey's Anatomy (and too many other tv shows to name), shopping, curling up on the couch with my hubby to watch movies (when I can stay awake), and sticky wet kisses from my little man. I've been blessed to be married to my best friend and surrounded by friends and family who support us and our miracle boy Derrick more than I could have ever imagined.

Justin is a dedicated husband and daddy who loves Gamecock football and spending time with his family. He is patient (especially with my indecisiveness and ever-growing list of projects) and has become quite the handy-man. He is supportive, loving, forgiving, and can always make me laugh. :) He is a true man of God and a wonderful role model for Derrick. He's definitely the best!




Derrick is our spunky little guy who has taught us more about faith and love than we thought could be possible. He is a spitting image of his daddy but he's sweet like his mama, ha! :) He loves to dance, play with cars, chase our dogs, read, and snuggle down. He is talkative, entertaining, and often the life of the party. He loves his bears and can smother you with the sweetest, sloppiest, but best kisses ever. Derrick has been through more in his first year of life than most of us will ever experience, but he does it with a smile. He's our hero.
