Who are Lit and Bean you ask? Well I'm Lit and my husband is Bean. At least that's what we call each other. I come from a long line of nickname givers, and lucky for me Bean has been very amenable to the whole process. We do have real names, which for the sake of this post I will mention are Lauri and Mike. But if someone who I know personally calls me Lauri to my face, I get that nervous, vomit-y feeling in my stomach like they're mad at me. So going forward, I am Lit.

We also have a one and a half year old baby, Finley. She goes by many nicknames too, but will henceforth be referred to as Fin. And of course, our crazy dog, Derby, or Derbs. That's us. We're fun. And I plan on blogging about it. Sound good?
Oh and here is a picture of us (minus Derby, but he will show up in future posts for sure):

  1. Hahahaha!! You are so funny. I guess I'll stop calling you Lauri, so that I don't make you dry-heave from nerves or anything. :-) YAY NEW BLOG!!! SOOOOO EXCITED!!!

  2. Love this!! I started a blog when I first got preggo and I have been a slacker these last months with posting but you should check mine out. I guess I should call you Lit, too! Never knew you felt that way...can I have a nickname??
