About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa. I just turned 30 this year, and realized some of the habits we had in our 20's needed to stay there. I knew that we needed to make some changes, and if a mama changes, the rest of the family follows her lead so I started our change with me. Life didn't come with an instruction manual so I have made a lot of mistakes along the way, and now that I'm 30, I'd like to put everything that I've learned from them to good use! So I turned into a mom on a mission. Many missions actually because what mother can be doing just one thing at a time, and be satisfied :) I'm on a mission to be a healthier family, a happier family, a more organized family. My boyfriend, Fat Dad and I have been together for 11 years so we have made a lot of those mistakes together. Two of my favorite mistakes are our two wonderful little monsters. My son JJ is 4 and is the family comedian, and my daughter AL just turned terrible, I mean 2! Our family is far from perfect, and I love every imperfect second of it! 

On this blog, I really am figuring it out as we grow. Life is all about adapting and changing so what works for us today might not work tomorrow or for one kid and not the other. I already know what we did in our 20's is not working for us today. Come see what does and doesn't work out for us, and join us on this crazy journey called life. Please feel free to offer any tips or tricks that have worked for you along the way.
