I like to drink English Breakfast Tea, watch Gilmore Girls, read a good, suck-you-in fiction book, play with my babies, take long bubble baths, and learn about Jesus. I tend to be pretty crafty and I wish it were Fall all year round. I do not like to clean out my crock pot after queso, go to the dentist, be pregnant in the Summer, or potty train. Also it really bothers me when people don't use their turn indicators when driving.
I have really funny kids that I am passionate about raising to be world changers. With one big sasster and three younger brothers after her, we have adventures daily! I keep my sanity with lots of prayer, Coca-Cola, and clinging to a good routine and schedule. Read about my adventures in parenting, Babywise topics, and ideas about raising world-changing kids here.
I love to travel and I love my job of planning fabulous trips for people (especially Disney!). I have visited over 11 countries (20 if you include Epcot) and love the excitement of learning new cultures! You can see some of the places I've traveled to and get more information about working with a travel planner here.
Being a mom is the hardest, best, craziest, most rewarding adventure I've ever been on and the more friends I have along the journey, the better.
All of that to say, Welcome! Pull up a chair and some air freshener....I am so glad you are here!

After Jesus, he is the best thing that ever happened to me. Kyle loves to study the Bible (and other theological and puritanical books and whatnot), drink good dark coffee, spend time with me!, play with the scouts, find new,weird music, research the best quality products, disciple and teach men how to love and serve their families well, travel, be apart of new church plants, talk in different accents, and play rugby. He does not love to eat mayonnaise, be conscious when the wind blows from the south, get caught in traffic, clean up after pets or animals, or listen to mainstream or pop music.
Tonks is a 1 year old African Pigmy Hedgehog. We got Tonks as a Christmas gift for the scouts because we are crazy and like to live on the wild side. So far, Tonks would really like it best if we would leave her alone (typical hedgehog nature) but we are socializing her and will win her over if we have anything to say about that! She is named after Nymphadora Tonks from the Harry Potter Series.
Gilmore "Gilly" Wiley is the newest member of the Wiley family! She was born in June of 2016 and is half Chocolate Lab and half Boykin Spaniel. Her name comes from Gilmore Girls, my favorite TV show ever. So far, she is full of shenanigans and likes to chew everything up. Everything. We're trying to hang tough through the puppy years! She does have her sweet moments though!
