Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?
Definitely a suburban mama! We live in the north end of the city, we actually purchased my childhood home from my parents when I was pregnant with our firstborn.
Tell us about your children?
My husband and I have two children. Aubrie is 8 years old and Connor just turned 5! Happy to say our little family is now complete with the addition of our fur baby Arri 🙂
Tell us about your typical weekday?
Both our kids are in school now so our mornings are spent getting them up and on their way. My son is only half days and so my mornings are often spent working, going to the gym, or running errands. He is picked up around lunchtime, after that, I will often squeeze in some work while he watches a show, after dinner when the kids are in bed is when I get most of my blog work done. I also work part-time at a dental office 6 days a month.
Do you have help?
Yes! One of the perks of my husband’s job is that he is often home during the week. When he is home I am able to get more work done on the blog.
Who cooks dinner?
I would say its 50/50
How often do you buy something just for you?
Lash extensions are the one thing I do for myself and I am not sure I would be able to live without them now!
Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?
Since the kids went back to school I have made going to the gym a priority. I go about 3 times per week.
What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your children?
Carters/OshKosh is our go-to clothing brand
