Meet the fam

Hey there!

This is my little family of 3 (soon to be 4!):


The tall boy is hubby Brent, the small boy is son Mason (born 3/21/2012), and that’s me.

Here’s how we got here:

Brent and I met in 2007 through mutual friends. We hit it off immediately, and as the story goes, I called my mom the next day to announce that I’d met the man I was going to marry.

In January 2008, we started dating.

By the end of that year, we had no doubt that this was IT. Brent proposed on New Year’s Eve, during the first minute of 2009.


On September 26, 2009, we made it official.


In June of 2010, we bought our first house in Madison, Wisconsin.

Then, in July of 2011, we found out we were expecting our first baby–a little boy!


On March 21, 2012, Mason Brent Krueger was born.

In November 2013, we found out that Baby #2 was on the way.

We’re having a second boy, due August 2014! Check out the Pregnancy page for details.

I don’t know how I JUST read this now, but our stories are so eeeeeeerily similar. Met Tyler in 2007. Engaged in ’08. Married in ’09. Baby in ’12! But if you say baby #2 soon, then that’s where the similarities will stop! hahaha

Haha! We’ll have to discuss timing on that before either of us makes any moves! :)

Stumbled across your blog thanks to 28DBC and just wanted to say that I’m loving it! As a single lady, I love seeing life through other perspectives. Your hubby and darling baby are so cute and I can so appreciate your running story (it’s about the same as mine is panning out to be).

Sounds like destiny to me! :) Looking forward to more updates on your little man!

Awww congratulations to you guys! You’re a beautiful family and I love your cheerful attitude Kim. :D And one thing! It’s so funny that your baby was born the day right before I got married, teehee.
