We are college sweethearts with three beautiful kids: Gadget, Boots, and the Caterpillar. My husband graduated from Morehouse College and I graduated from Spelman. SpelHouse is a term which refers to the union of Spelman and Morehouse graduates, and spelhouselove is what you get when we come together. We were both dual-degree students who also attended Georgia Tech, so we have undergraduate degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering (nerd alert). This blog began focusing on our life and our family, and how in 2 years, with 2 kids we graduated with 2 MBAs, and is now about our marriage, our kiddos, and life in Texas.
Hubby was born on November 19, 1979 in Diego Martin, Trinidad. He grew up in Trinidad and came to the states in 1999 to attend Morehouse College. We met in 2002 at the National Society of Black Engineer’s convention in Orlando, Florida. In 2009, we both attended and graduated from NYU Stern’s School of Business where Hubby specialized in Finance and Entrepreneurship and I received an MBA with a concentrated in Marketing. Hubby and I work at different companies, but both of our jobs are with MLT partners.
I was born on September 15, 1980 in Minneapolis, MN and here are 25 random things about me. I grew up in Minnesota until leaving in 1999 to attend Spelman in Atlanta. You’ll find stories about breastfeeding and pumping in the admirals club, losing my entire stash of breastmilk, getting out of debt and how we’re slowly conquering 100 aspirational life goals.
We live in north Texas and love it.
