About Me

Hello! My name is Cassie Fillmore. I am a wife and mother of one (almost two) and been married for two and a half years. Here are some fun facts about me!

I have an amazing husband, LaMar, who is studying very hard to become a doctor. I also have a beautiful daughter! Her name is Gemma and she is 18 months old. She loves to play, run around, snuggle, eat food, dance, do puzzles, read books, and laugh! I am also extremely pregnant with baby #2! Due on October 10. It is so much fun being a new mama!

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or as most people would know it as Mormon. If you want to know more you can visit here!

I was raised on a “farm” of sorts in Arizona.  Had 250+ dogs (we were dog breeders), lots of show pigeons, ducks, geese, chickens, roosters, love birds, parakeets, turtles, goats, a pig, 3 emus, ferret, mccaw parrot, horses, cow, snakes, a very large lizard (probably almost 3 feet long!)100?+ date palm trees (which can be a lot of work to manage), oh and of course the many, many peacocks my father still owns. I guess you can say I had an interesting childhood… Woke up at 5am every morning to take care of them. But sadly my parents only have about a bazillion peacocks/hens, 2 Rottweilers, and a cat.

I am Type One Diabetic and have been for 6 years. I can’t really think of anything funny or positive to say about it other than I can use my “disease” as an excuse to do or eat things I don’t want to do/eat. It doesn’t happen often but there are times where I’m like, “oh, sorry I can’t eat that… my blood sugar is out of control today!” or “You know, I really wish I could but my blood sugar is 35 so I need to sit and do absolutely nothing. Oh, and can you get me a glass of chocolate milk with 5 large scoops of ice cream. That would be super helpful!” 😉  Thankfully I have an awesome hubby who takes excellent care of my while I am in my hypo state.

I am a bit of a nerd… I love Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, ect. Seriously, more than once I thought we should name my daughter Arwen, or if I was going to have twins it would be extremely tempting to name them Luke and Leia… Maybe next time… 😉 My husband would most likely be very supportive of that.

I love to try to keep myself busy with cleaning, organizing, crafting, sewing, fitness, cooking, baking, making notebooking pages. Although I may not be very good at some of them I still try… I probably go on Pinterest a little too much and accomplish too little. But hey Pinterest sure can make me feel like I’m actually going to try the 1 million recipes I pinned. I probably should get on top of that… 😉

Well, theres a few things about me! I hope you enjoy my blog and notebooking pages! I’m excited to start this new adventure!!
