About Kristin

Well hello! Hi there! Welcome and a big thank you for visiting!



I'm Kristin and I'll be the one babbling to you.

I have always been a journaler. I think it started with a love for writing and my need to express my total displeasure in the way I was being raised. I took my journaling to AIM (woo am I dating myself or what?) when my grandparents finally got the internet. I don't think anyone ever read it. I wish I still had those blogs. They chronicled basically everything that was happening in my little part of the world at that time. I switched to myspace and LiveJournal when those were popular. I finally stumbled upon blogger and this is where I've been ever since, I've had a few other blogs with different titles but nothing I ever stuck with.

I love blogging. I love writing about my kids. I love the idea that as my kids get older I can look back on the posts and remember times we've had. It's so important for me to remember those moments. I also love the community of other mom bloggers. I get all kinds of tips and just knowing that I'm not the only one who has no idea what they're doing helps me a lot lol.

I'm currently the mother of three little heathens cherubs. 


Dawn is turning 14 this year (lord help me!), Gaige is 13, and Owen is 8. We've also got some grown ones.

This was taken at our wedding four years ago.

Cassandra is 18 and there was all kinds of drama when she popped up right before our wedding four years ago. Because of said drama, she no longer speaks to us (we are not heartbroken about it). Tristen is 18 also and living with his great grandmother. He has mental health issues and is legally deaf (although he can hear a little bit he also wears hearing aids). 


D and I have been together for 12 years now. We met online on my 21st birthday and met in person a couple weeks later. We have been through some stuff I tell you what, but we're probably the tightest couple you'll ever meet. We laugh all the time. Even though he drives me crazy sometimes (because he's male obviously). I can honestly say I love him more now than I did when we first met. He is literally the best guy I've ever dated and I'm so glad I chose him to spend the rest of my life with :).


Of course our house wasn't full enough so we added to the zoo. These two are Boss Hogg (12 year old Chihuahua) and Priscilla (four year old Pug/Chihuahua mix). They're a pain in the butt most of the day. But they're pretty cute so we keep them ;)


And this one is Erma. A six year old cat we got from D's friend that D was pretty pissed about discovering when he got home from church one day lol. But she keeps the mice away so we keep her around, even though she's none too friendly unless she wants to be.

I'm not posting a picture of the snake cause *shudder* She's gross.

But that's me. I hope you enjoy the blog!
