Introduction to the World

Hey there everyone (or the few people who might actually read this)!  Welcome to "The Nerd Life"!  I finally decided to join the blog world and see what it's all about.  So this is me testing the water and trying to kind of document life.

I guess I'll start with an introduction to the nerds...

I'm Ellen, and I'll be your tour guide through this blog.  Let's see, what would you all like to know?  I was born and raised in St. Louis as a math nerd.  I'm from a very large family... I'm number 3 of 8 children.  I went to college (in Springfield) to decide what I wanted to do with my life, and left with a masters in accountancy.  Now I work as a business analyst for a distribution company in St. Louis.  I spend my day crunching numbers and analyzing data.  After work, I hit the gym a few times each week.  I'm kind of a homebody, but I do enjoy getting out when I can.  I'm definitely a TV junkie.

This is Justin, my fiance.  He's just along for the ride.  Justin was born and raised in Eldon, a tiny little town in the middle of Missouri.  He's also from a large family, which includes both his biological family and his adopted family.  He went to college (in Jefferson City) to get a degree in computers.  He now works as a computer programmer for a manufacturing company.  He spends his day typing gibberish (he calls it code) and fixing people's computer problems.  He's very much a morning person and enjoys hitting the weights before work.  After work, Justin enjoys playing Starcraft and spending time with me.

And last, but not least, this is Maggie, our little fur-baby.  She is definitely a handful, but we love her very much.  She spends her day watching birds through the sliding glass door and lounging around on her new perch.  She loves picking fights with Justin and snuggling up with me.

Justin and I got engaged in March 2010 during a romantic getaway for the two of us in St. Louis.  We spent the weekend at the Westin where I was pampered with a massage, mani, and pedi.  In the evening, Justin took us to dinner at Dominic's where he proposed!  We are planning a beach wedding for April 22, 2012 (only 3 more months) in Cocoa Beach, Florida and we are very excited to start our life together.

So I guess that's enough of an introduction to us nerds.... see ya on the flip side!



Welcome to the blogging world. You'll be addicted...I'm not going to lie!


Hey Ellen! I followed you from Spark. I am a member of the Stars with you! I hope you enjoy blogging!!


Hey Ellen, it's Beth from Spark. You two are such a cute couple. Oh, and my hubby types gibberish all day too (computer programmer and he calls it coding also lol). I don't know what the heck he is talking about when he talks about work! April is approaching very quickly LOL

So glad there are other nerdy couples out there besides me and my Hubby :)
