About Us

This blog started primarily after our daughter was born. At first it was just a bunch of pictures in a photo gallery.  The intent was to use it to share our experiences with friends and family, chronicle our daughter’s growth and remember the silly (and not-so-silly) things she said/did. We’ve evolved into sharing all of the things that we care about now too!

Amber:  I work full time outside of the home for an advertising related company, I also teach coupon classes for Couponing In Iowa.  I love party planning and decorating, weddings, heath bars, technology, taking pictures, and having an opinion

Aaron also works full time as an operator for a local power plant. He’s great at fixing things and DIY projects. We met at work and have been together for 3 years.  Okay, it’s been more than 3 years, but I’m not a big fan of commitment and long-term anything, so I keep resetting the clock.  We are not married, but we’ll get there someday.  We just don’t see a reason to hurry up and do it!

Our daughter is Averie.  She is a preschooler who loves projects/crafts and trips to the park. She also loves technology and is already schooling her tech savvy mom on occasion.  She’s sharp as a tack, stubborn as a mule and clumsy as all get-out (despite our attempts at thwarting that with enrolling her in gymnastics).  I’m not going to say which parent she got which of those traits from either…

As if that wasn’t enough by itself — in addition to all of that — we also run a family owned hand-decorated sugar cookie business: A Cookie Family.
