About Mommy Krystal

I am a very lucky mama and get to stay home with my adorable 2 year old son. He keeps me on my toes (and awake all night long), makes me laugh out loud and scream quietly under my breath. My husband is amazing and the best daddy I could ever imagine. We started our journey together 7 years ago, but in the last 3 years have gotten married, had a baby, bought a house, and are expecting our second little monkey in late December. We have made a ton of changes and though it is not always easy, it has been the most rewarding life change I have made. We tend to be a but impulsive, but don't have a single regret! I am grateful for the life that I have (despite all the bitching I manage to do!). I wouldn't have it any other way!

37 Weeks!!!!


I sat down tonight to write about and reflect on this pregnancy as we near the end and was shocked to see that it has been 7 weeks since I last wrote!!!  OYE!  There were 3 different entries in the “draft” sections with only a few sentences; “32 weeks,” “35 weeks” and the start of a post about my new business venture.
I then looked through my calendar and realized that my fatigue and exhaustion is not just pregnancy induced, but because Noah, this belly and I have been go-go-going strong for the last few months!! Read the rest of this entry




Noah talked about being a dinosaur for weeks, so come Halloween, that’s exactly what he was!  But it wasn’t just a dinosaur, every time he said it, Noah would open his eyes super wide, drop the tone of his voice to be a bit intimidating and drag out the word to DI-NO-SAUR! 🙂  hahaha….so dramatic!

“Om Baby” Shower


I must start by saying that I am one insanely lucky momma.  I am so so so grateful to have so many amazing women in my life!  A small dozen of them joined us for a baby shower just before Halloween during a true shower!  It was raining buckets while we piled inside Chesna’s house, enjoyed yummy food, played a few silly games, and opened gifts for this little baby in my belly!  Chesna and Justine really went above and beyond to create a welcoming and beautiful party and I could not have asked for anything more!
