The Jamie's + 1

A Re Introduction

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

So truth be told... I never did a Introduction to begin with.
My new blog friend Sarah did this a few weeks ago and I loved it!
I thought that this blog would just be a scrapbook but I have met so many friends along the way that this is my outlet.  I love my blog friends and love the advice and also knowing that I am not the only one that feels as though I have NO idea what i'm doing! ha!

So any who... back the the reintroduction. 

I'm Jamie.  I grew up in Mississippi and moved to South Carolina when I was 20 years old.  My dad was transferred here and I just wasn't ready to be 10 hours away from my parents.  I went to college in South Carolina and graduated with a degree in dental assisting in 2007.  I now work as a front desk/assistant at an office in Asheville, NC.  I have been here 5 1/2 years and love it!

I met Jamie (yes my husbands name is Jamie) in July 2008.  We met at a bar and the first time I met him he didn't remember my name!  We bought a house together in December 2008 and were married in October 2009.  We moved our relationship along very quickly... but when you know, you know!

After we first got married we decided we didn't want kids.  We were both set on traveling and just having fun.  In May 2011 my little sister had a beautiful baby girl named Brooklyn.  Boy Jamie and I both changed our minds about having kids as soon as we met Brooklyn.  

In January 2012 we found out we were expecting.  My pregnancy was horrible.  In the 1st trimester I had the stomach bug, in my 2nd trimester I was in a car accident and in the 3rd trimester I had high blood pressure.  I was admitted into the hospital for all of these things.  I also had 'pup' and carpal tunnel syndrome and it was very hard to sleep.

On September 13, 2012 our sweet Nicklas was born.  The delivery, just like my pregnancy was not fun!  After laboring for 12 hours, my body gave up on me.  I only dilated to 5 cm and had to have an emergency C-Section.  My C-Section took 2 1/2 hours and I don't remember much of it.  But Nicklas was healthy and that's all that really mattered!

Nicklas is now a threenager and the love of my life!!

He is smart, energetic, loving and sometimes hes the devil... but that's normal!!

We are getting our house ready to put on the market.
We recently purchased some land and our preparing to begin building.

So as you may guess.  The name of our blog comes from both of us having the name Jamie and +1 is for our sweet Nicklas.

I wouldn't change this little chaotic life of mine for anything in the world!!  I am not sure that we will be having anymore children...  One seems to be enough for now.

A little more about me:  I love reality TV... Give me some Teen Mom, Dance Moms, and any Real Housewives and I'm a happy girl!  I am not into sports at all but I LOVE NASCAR.  I am experimenting more and more in the kitchen so stay tuned for easy recipes in the future.  We also have 2 chihuahuas, Sassy and Toby.  I love blogging and I am so excited that you want to take a peak into our lives!  Thanks for stopping by and please leave feedback.  I would love to get to know each and everyone of you. 


  1. Love this! I wish all of my blogger friends would do re-introductions! We have very similar relationship stories - met in 2008, married a short time later, and babies in 2012! I can't believe your pregnancy craziness. So glad everything worked out in the end! Also, I think I wore the same dress in maternity pictures! Target?? Congrats of your recent land purchase! What an exciting time for you guys!

    1. Yes! Target!!! I loved that dress! And yes, when you know, you know... Why waste time! Loved getting to know more about you and thankful for the great idea!
