This week we are excited to introduce you to Jeannie Parcollet. She is a married mom and she is the face behind @the.parcos and I have been really blessed to get to know Jeannie through Instagram. She is one of the sweetest individuals, inside and out, you will ever meet. She shares her families passion for travel and she has the most beautiful mountain pictures on her page. You can follow her on Instagram.
Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?
I am an urban mama and I live in Edmonton, Alberta. I absolutely love the city and so happy that I can raise my children here.
Tell us about your children?
I have one child named Koa Jayden! He makes the world so much better. He is turning one this January. I’m so excited to be hosting his birthday! We are doing a cake smash with Cake Affair in Spruce Grove and I can’t wait to show photos on social media.
Tell us about your typical weekday?
My typical weekday varies from day to day. As of right now, I’m on maternity leave. Although, I have picked up being an influencer as a job to pass the time. My day involves creating content, playing with my son, enjoying my new hobby which is skating, and constantly connecting with other mothers to expand my network on Instagram!
Do you have help?
I’m very fortunate to have my parents as caregivers when I feel burnt out. It is so needed for me to keep my mental health in check. My husband is also very hands on with my son which allows me to focus on creating content.
Who cooks dinner?
My husband absolutely loves cooking dinner so I’m very lucky that he does most of the cooking. On the rare occasion I do make dinner, I love making my dad’s famous spaghetti or turkey burgers!
How often do you buy something just for you?
Very rarely. I’m very conscious about the way I spend money. If I were to spend something on myself, it would be a new professional camera!
Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?
I try to exercise at least 3-5 times a week, although it is very hard to juggle. I am very fortunate that I work with a personal trainer. He trains me through this app called MPC Fitness. I have also started skating as a hobby this year!
What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your children?
I’m totally obsessed with…
I’m totally obsessed with Maui, Hawaii! I’ve been there over 10 times in my lifetime, was married there, and Koa’s name is Hawaiian. If you haven’t been, you have to go! It’s absolutely stunning.
Three things in my purse right now are…
Granola bar, pen, and my wallet!
My favourite drugstore buy is?
I would say BBQ chips and nibs! I love chips and candy.
My guilty pleasure is?
Thank you, Jeannie, for taking time to let us know “How Does She Do It.”
