Minnesota Blogger: Elise from Crap, Did I Just Say That Out Loud?

Hey there, Minnesota Bloggers!

My name is Elise, and my blog is called Crap, Did I just say that out loud?

As most blogs go, I kind of just post about whatever I want, including, but not limited to...
1.) My Smokin' Hot Husband.

We met when I was in high school, he was MY BOSS (classy, right?) at the restaurant we worked at, and, at the time, our relationship was strictly professional and consisted of him telling me to shut up and get back to work. 
Four years later, we somehow got in touch, and he pursued and chased me until I was totally in love with him. We dated for a couple of months, got engaged, and then a few months later got married. 


A month after we got married, I was pregnant (MORE INSANITY), and we then decided to move from Colorado to Minnesota to raise our family here (for some EXTRA INSANITY).

So it's been a non-stop insanity ride since we got together, and we even still have the hots for each other through it all!
On my blog you can find posts on his Proposal Story, 30 Things About Luke, and our wedding pictures. 

But what I really write about most is...

2.) My cute kids.

I had my daughter, Vienna, in May of 2011, and I just had my son, Boaz, this last September, 2012.

 Having two under two has been so fun and so, so, SO crazy!

My daughter is like five kids in one body, has her own opinions about EVERYTHING, and has broadway-musical-style meltdowns most every time something doesn't go her way. 
Sooo....she's a typical toddler.

But when she's not whining or getting into something she's not supposed to or requesting to watch Finding Nemo for the 3rd time in one day, she's actually super adorable and funny.
And she's got great hair.
So that's a plus.

My baby boy is about as cool and chill and happy as they come. 
He rarely complains, no matter how many times his sister sits on his face or tries to "share" her snacks with him (by shoving a graham cracker down his throat).

Oh and he's HUGE. Almost 20 pounds at 6 months old.
(That's a little on the heavier side of things, for a baby...)

So these kiddos keep me rather busy, and I'm pretty sure have caused quite a few friends and family members to think that I'm a raging alcoholic, by how often I mention that I'm desperately in need of wine by 2 pm.

And every once in a while I post about...

3.) Food!

I REALLY love food.
Like..a lot.

(You know, it pairs nicely with all that wine I drink.)

I'm not a phenomenal cook by any means, but I totally love it and I enjoy sharing recipes and meal ideas.

So that's pretty much the gist of it! 
Just writing about our insane life as it happens, and trying to keep all of our far away friends and family updated on what we do. We are in the works/planning stages of getting a farm in the next year or two, so that will be another fun, weird, unfamiliar extravaganza to chronicle.
Social Media wise, my blog has a fancy Facebook Page, I have Twitter (which I suck at), and I'm on Pinterest and Instagram (@elisej125) quite a bit.
Hope to get to meet you all at some point!

1. I love the story of how you met your husband. That's how my aunt and uncle met, so it's neat to hear others like that too!

2. Your kids are so darling.

3. I really like food too... like a lot!

P.S. I'm a new Minnesota blogger...from Moorhead to be exact. Can't wait to hear more about your day-to-day life!

Welcome to MN! A little late I know but welcome none the less. I think if we lived close we would be friends. Poop and wine have more in common than the average Joe realizes. Thanks for the laughs this morning!
