I'm A Mom

Since this is my page, I guess that means a little info about me is in order. I was born on July 24, 1972, and I grew up in St. Joseph, Michigan (USA), a quaint little town on the coast of Lake Michigan. I met my husband, Phillip, at Lake Michigan College (the local community college) and we eventually started dating. In 1993 we moved to W. Lafayette, Indiana so Phillip could attend Purdue University. Our first son, Alexander, was born on October 16, 1994, at 7:45 a.m. Our second son, Joshua, was born December 30, 1997, at 9:08 p.m. In 1999 Phillip graduated from Purdue and we settled in Owatonna, MN. Our daughter, Caitlin, was born November 8, 2001, at 11:49 p.m. I enjoy music, reading, web page design, sewing, crafts, baking, gardening and being a mother. Oh, and my favorite color is green. FYI, links that take you away from this realm will open in a new window.

While we'd like to get all our relatives on the web here is a listing of those who currently are.



The city of Owatonna, MN is a wonderful little community full of beautiful parks (over 700 acres). The largest of these, with over 225 acres, is Kaplan's Woods Parkway. Kaplan Woods contains Lake Kohlmier, a 35 acre lake, over 6 miles of hiking and cross country skiing trails, and nearly two miles of hard-surfaced, handicapped-accessible trail. Phillip works as a Design Engineer at Owatonna Tool Company [OTC] a division of SPX Corporation. OTC is a major manufacturer and supplier of electronic diagnostic equipment for vehicles. He loves his job and they are proving to be a great company to work for. One of our favorite places to go is the Owatonna Public Library - they have a great children's section! We visit at least once a week to get new books for the boys. We also try to go to Family Storytime whenever we can, the boys really enjoy it. If you are ever in Owatonna you have to visit Cabelas, the worlds foremost outfitter of sporting & camping goods. Their Owatonna location boasts two museum quality dioramas featuring African plains game and the Big Five of African game animals. There are also two aquariums holding almost 54,000 gallons of water containing fish indigenous to Minnesota. My sons love to go to Cabela's just to look at all the animals and fish (it makes for a great homeschool field trip). Don't forget to have lunch while you're there, the Northwoods Cafe` has the best food in town!

About My Website:

These pages are an outlet for my creativity and are subject to my artistic whims. As I can't stand anything one way for too long they are usually in various stages of construction. If I say something is "Coming Soon!" do not believe me - I am a full time mom and my kids come first - give me a few weeks and check again, repeat until it shows up or you give up (whichever comes first). I try to make navigation easy and keep my links current - if you have a problem let me know! If there is one thing I can not stand it is following a link that is no good. I really hate having to say this, but.... The contents of these pages are my own personal opinions. I am not a medical professional. Nothing in these pages is intended as medical advice on and so forth. You know what is best for yourself and your family never let anyone tell you what you should do! Enjoy your visit!
