Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am so glad that you are here & hope that you come along this journey with me.
I’m just your average girl from Iowa who now lives in the Twin Cities. My husband and I met when he was my server at a restaurant & I spilled ranch all over him. The rest is history. We have a middle schooler, toddler, and infant (and a dog, too). I am both a stay at home mom during the week & a working mom on the weekends. My degree is in Children, Family, and Youth Ministry but I am currently going back to school to pursue a career as a nurse. Between staying home, working, and going to school I pretty much spill my coffee on myself at least a hundred times a day. Life is messy & sometimes I’m just a hot mess.
I am a wife, mom, and stepmom who is passionate about being real in motherhood, keeping it simple, being debt free, and eating real food + exercising (although I really like cupcakes + donuts). Having a filter is not one of my strengths so I promise you to always keep it real. What I write in my blog is real and is no different than if I was having coffee with a friend. Nothing is watered down or sugar coated. I want my friends that I have coffee with to be able to verify that what I say on here reflects what is going on in my life out there.
Being a wife is hard. Being a stay at home or working mom is hard. Being a stepmom is harder. So put on your favorite pair of yoga pants & pour yourself a giant cup of coffee. Let’s do this whole motherhood thing together, ladies. Bottoms up.
