Hi, my name is Michelle and and I am half of The Frisco Project. My favorite things to do are reading books, photography, and tackling projects around the house. I love cooking and baking as well when I can find the time to do it. If I were to go back to college again, I would major in Photography or Interior Design, which is the complete opposite of the Industrial & Organizational Psychology degree I have. I am married to my best friend and am a mom to two wonderful little boys!
The other half of The Frisco Project would be my husband, Justin. He is a hard working, funny, supportive man and I am lucky to have him. His favorite thing to do is golf and working on our house. He is a wonderful daddy and good at keeping me sane when the craziness of motherhood pushes me to my limits. He proposed to me in Rome, Italy and we were married in 2006 surrounded by our family and friends. We decided that San Diego is where we wanted to be so we bought a home and settled in.
Our first son was born in January 2013. His favorite things are LEGOS, swimming, reading and riding his bike. He is our social butterfly and Mr. Smarty Pants. Our second son was born in May 2015. His favorite things to do are destroying anything his brother builds, and sports (swinging a golf club, kicking a soccer ball and throwing a baseball). He has a sweet, snugly side, but most of the time is our loud, rambunctious one. They bring so much love, laughter and absolute chaos into our home and hearts. We are continuously amazed by them and are so blessed to be their parents.
BEHIND THE NAME
When we were trying to think of a name for this blog I was not excited about anything we were coming up with. One Saturday, we were out running errands and stopped to grab a drink (beer for Justin, raspberry lemonade for me) and some fries, I once again brought up the topic of blog names. This is when Justin came up with The Frisco Project. I can’t tell you exactly why, but I liked it. I think it is a name that represents a big “project” that we had been working on for 3 years trying to start a family. In fact, my grandpa once hugged me and told me that he was praying for our “project” to work out (in regards to getting pregnant). I also can see it relating to things that we will encounter in the future (especially being parents). My husband and I are both planners, and when we get an idea in our heads we will talk it over, analyze it and plan, plan, plan until it is done. We always have something we are working towards, so I guess you would say we are “project orientated”. Really if you think about it…marriage, jobs, relationships, and life in general takes work, lots of thought, time, energy and they all are, in a way, a Project. So the name stuck and now we give you The Frisco Project 🙂
