Hi! I'm Ashley, the proud owner of this little blog, Dirt Stains and Paint. Dirt Stains for the countless dirt stains I ALREADY am having to get out of clothes in the laundry with a house full of boys. And Paint for the countless painting, and just general DIY projects, I tackle on our beautiful new home.
A little about me:
Our life of wedded bliss started in 2006. I'm rapidly approaching 30, and am so blessed to be experimenting in the world of mommyhood. Yes, that's right, my days are filled with experiments. Not scientific ones, but ones that involve the kitchen, raising my two boys, this home and learning to be better in all ways that I believe a wife should be. It is a dream to have a house filled with all things boy, and I strive daily to instill a Godly legacy in this home. We try to maintain sanity in the house while Blake is away at his 9-5.
If we're going to be friends, there are probably a few things you should know:
I bake cookies only with pre-made dough.
Sometimes I drink a Diet Coke for breakfast instead of coffee.
I have more ideas than I actually follow through with.
I'll always pick a night IN verses a night OUT on the town.
I only wash my hair (generously) twice a week.
My kids will always be dressed for the day. Me, on the other hand...
I love being an expert in whatever I'm known for. I'm still searching for what those subjects are...
