Hello!  My name is Natalie aka Mrs. Janney.  My husband, Phil and I have been married for about 2 and a half years.

I started this blog shortly after we got married to chronicle some of our married shenanigans.  You see... funny things just happen to me.  Like ridiculous things that shouldn't happen to people... they happen to me. 

Like noticing this:

Or having strange conversations with people, including my husband.  Like the time I got yelled at by a strange woman in the hair salon.  Or when my husband made sure I knew I wasn't as bad as a grizzly bear.

Sometimes I post recipes

{That's a pillow cookie.  It's a brownie in a chocolate chip cookie.}

Sometimes I post my craft projects (like the baby blankets I make or the baby/bridal showers I have thrown). 

Often, I post about my nephews because they are HILARIOUS.

And I post about our dogs, Taylor and Cotton too.

Not all of our adventures are fun or funny.  Shortly after we got married, my husband's father was diagnosed with Liver Cancer.  His liver ruptured unexpectantly, which ironically most likely extended his life tremendously.  If dealing with a sick parent weren't enough, my husband is trying to finish his PhD in Toxicology and I am a part-owner of an engineering firm (during a struggling economy).

In an effort to bring some joy into our lives, we decided we wanted to try and start a family.  After trying for a while, we found out we were fertilly challenged.  Just as we were about to start moving forward with a fertility clinic (which I haven't really blogged about yet and have been meaning to do), we found out I was growing twins in my neck.  And by twins, I mean thyroid nodules.  While most nodules end up being nothing, this is me we are talking about so OF COURSE it ended up being thyroid cancer.

I made it through my thyroid cancer treatments and in early September of 2012, we found out we wouldn't be needing fertility treatments right now and are having a baby!  

Also... you can find me on Twitter at @MrsNJanney.  I haven't put that on my blog yet, so I have like 5 followers.  Basically, if you follow me, you'll pretty much make my day.
