First Time Blogger

Hello Everyone. My name is Tiffany Thomas and this is my first time blogging. I have seen some of my friends blogs and absolutely love it. I have not had the Internet or a computer in a really long time. My husband and I have recently got our tax return, and let me tell ya, we have went on one heck of a shopping spree. A much needed shopping spree.
So a little about me and my crazy wonderful life:
As you may or may not know me, my name is Tiffany Rae Thomas. I was born on April 26, 1986. I have live in Ohio all my life and probably always will. I grew up in a small town called Goshen until my high school years. My mom moved us to Mount Orab in 2001, my freshman year, when her and her long time boyfriend split up. He was the closest thing I had to a father because my father was never a big part of my life until recently. My step dad's name was Duane and he raised me. We don't have much of a relationship anymore. It's sad because I wanted him to be the grandfather to my children. OK, well enough about him.
So we moved to Mount Orab and I can honestly say, I hated it. I hated the fact that my mom up and moved us the beginning of my freshman year. I missed all of my friends. I had a lot of friends, but I do not do well with change. I am a very shy quiet person. I had no friends until one day in my FCCLA class I was placed next to this girl named Jessica Jetter. Did not say one word to her until she started talking to me. To this day she is my best friend in the whole wide world. If it wasn't for her, Brittany Milburn-Wolke, and a few other friends... My high school experience would have been hell! I graduated in May of 2006 and that turned out to be the beginning of my crazy wonderful life.
I had a few relationships in high school, but only two serious relationships and both of those relationships turned out to be failures. My first serious relationship, thought he was the love of my life. We got along so well and spent every minute with each other that we were able to. But mistakes were made by both of us and it ended quickly, and might I say badly! My second serious relationship, wish it never happened. Saying he was the biggest mistake in my entire life is an understatement HAHAHA! I have absolutely no idea what I was thinking with him. By far the worst boyfriend in the world.
So after making and learning from my mistakes, I met the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with, Hollis Dwight Thomas! We worked together at OMG. Had the biggest crush on him. We always caught each other looking at one another on more than one occasion. We started dating at the end of 2005 and we were married May 13, 2006. We eloped with just a few friends. Didn't have a honeymoon and had to go back to work two days later. He is by far my best decision I have ever made. No marriage is perfect. We have went through some hard times. We have had our ups and downs like any other normal relationship. We will always have our battles. But our love is true. He is amazing. He is my life and I wouldn't have my crazy wonderful life without him. I truly love him with all my heart. He is my best friend, my true love, my world!
We waited four months before we decided to have children. We wanted children before we were even married. We were both ready to be parents more than anything in the world. Three months after we were married we found out I was pregnant and two days later I miscarried. It was very upsetting, but we weren't giving up. The next month.... Yes I was pregnant again. I was so nervous through this pregnancy because of my previous miscarriage but extremely excited at the same time. My first pregnancy was very uncomfortable. We found out we was having a girl and she was not due til June 28Th of 2007. Through my last trimester my pregnancy was horrible. I was swollen to the max. I couldn't bend my fingers, wear shoes or socks, and I had high blood pressure. We tried everything to get my bp down but nothing was working. We were admitted to the hospital on a Wednesday at 7pm the 13Th. Let me to tell you my labor was absolutely horrible. They let me lay there for 3 days only dilated 1cm before they decided to do a c section. After two cervidils and pitocin I was so ready for a c section. I did not care what I had to do anymore to get this little girl out. She was born on Friday June 15Th 2007 at 9:56 am. She was healthy at 7lbs 2oz and 19.5in. Courtney Anne Thomas is about to turn 3 on her way to 16. She is a hand full. She is energetic, smart, bright, curious, outgoing, loving, caring, respectful, brutally honest wonderful little girl. We already butt heads a lot. Others may have their opinions about her, but she is my amazing little girl. I love her with every beat of my heart. I don't know where I would be without her. She has changed my life so much. I have grown up so much after having her and I learn so much from her about myself every day. I can not believe how fast she is growing up. She is so amazing and perfect.
Our second child was a bit of a surprise but not a regret by any means. My husband and I had a brief "break" and we had just gotten back together. We were in the middle of moving and working things out when two months later, I realize wow I haven't had my monthly. So on my daughter's 8 month check up, I picked up a pregnancy test and went to a friends house. It was definitely positive. I was so shocked, scared, nervous, and excited all at the same time. He was definitely a blessing in disguise.
We found out we was having a boy. My original due date was October 9Th 2008 and when I had an ultrasound they changed it to November 12Th 2008. Big SHOCK! That was a crazy gap to me and I could not believe it. We had a scheduled c section for November 6Th 2008. He was born on a Thursday November 6Th 2008 at 8:21am at a healthy weight of 10lbs 2oz and 21.5 inches long. Oh yes you read that right. We were more shocked on how big he was. I am so glad I did not have to try to do vaginal with him. His name is Eli Dwight Thomas and he is our blessing in disguise. He is my little man. He is a wonderful, vibrant, happy, giggly, loving, exciting, wonderful and handsome little boy. He did not stay a baby for long and it upsets me very much. I wish I could freeze time with both of my baby's and keep them at the age that they are now. I miss having little baby laughs and whimpers around. They are growing up too fast on me and I am not ready for it at all.
So now that I have pretty much told you my life story, this is me. This is my wonderful crazy life that I love. I love being a stay at home mom. I love watching my children grow every day, every minute of their life. My family is my universe. Everything I do is for my family. I live to watch my family grow. I have an amazing life. A wonderful life. This is my perfect wonderful crazy life!!!
