Get to know me!

Hi! My name is Keli. I am a 22 year old mommy of 2 very energetic boys. Payton is 3 years old and Gavin is 19 months. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jason. We live in a small town you have never heard of in Central Oregon. I work as an educational assistant in a special education classroom. This is a very rewarding job and perfect for me since I have always wanted to be a teacher. I work part-time at a local furniture store (can't quite give up working there, I get sweet discounts and love my bosses!). On top of all the many hats I wear, I am also taking online classes working towards my teaching degree. I am a very busy mommy and get overwhelmed at times. I am a obsessively organized person, so this helps me function on a day-to-day basis. I have a list, place, and schedule for everything.

With this busy life I lead, I still try to work in time for me... time I can have a hobby to give myself an identity besides that of mom, wife, employee, daughter, and sister. I want time to be me! I have worked extra hard at finding things I can enjoy alone or with my family. I love to sew and cook/bake! Doing either of these two things are such a nice release of my built up frustrations. I try to be a crafty person and have a goal to attempt more crafts. I am wanting to plant a garden this spring, as well as learn to can my home grown foods. I am always looking for ways to save money, live healthier and be a better person.

Can't wait to share more with you all!


  1. Hi Keli, this is Becky, Uncle Jeffs wife, not sure what it will say my name is, I never understood this site much.

    I saw you mention that you are obsessively organized, I had been diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder years ago, because I was so Obsessively Organized. It's alot better now days, I tend to not be quite organized enough at times.

    I love the lay out here, and look forward to seeing what you add!

  2. I knew it was you right away! I love how close I feel to you now. We have really gotten to know eachother better through facebook. Sometimes I wonder if I could be diagnosed wit OCD, maybe I am more obsessive out of necessity rather then having to be. :) Thanks for the comment!
