Hi, I’m Jenn! I’m a 30-something, Army Wife and Stay-at-Home, Homeschooling, Momma of three.
I like to say I traded in my heels and skirts for yoga pants and Nikes. Meaning, I used to
have a social life involving other adults hold a 9 to 5, sleep peacefully through the night, get mani-pedi’s on the reg, and kept up with the latest fashion trend.
But I gave all of that up for pajama pants, yoga pants, sweat pants (whatever’s the most comfortable) so I can chase around my baby Zhen and home educate my two Big Kids (the BK’s) Elijah and Mj! Oh, and tote them around town to their every single activity and athletic games!
Just a little fun fact…
Originally, I created my tagline to read: “…traded in my heels and miniskirts for yoga pants and Nike’s”, but my husband chuckled at my little attempt to be catchy and exclaimed, “and a lot of times those miniskirts came off!” Something like that.
To which, I gave him my “what the hell is that supposed to mean” look because it seemed like he was implying something. (My husband is known for telling bad jokes.) So he quickly amended his punchline saying he only meant when you put a piece of clothing on, you eventually have to take it off. Uh, right.
So as not to sound like an ol’ floozy, I edited my tagline and omitted the word “mini”.
I haven’t had 8 hours of sleep in over a year. I haven’t used the bathroom without an applauding audience in a while (that audience being my baby Zhen). And I pretty much know all the words to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, but I have no idea what the Top 10 hit songs are on the Billboard charts. New baby. Fun stuff.
If you’ve never been excited over another person making a poop and then wiping their butt, then you don’t know what true love is, my friend!
I’m happily married to Travis, a U.S. Army Soldier
so really I’m married to the Army. My husband is active duty Army and he has been serving for 7 years now.
Our three children are: Elijah (age 13), Mj (age 11), and Zhen (‘da baby!).
Blogging has become one of my dear hobbies. It keeps me from posting my ENTIRE life on my Facebook page and preventing friends and “people I may know” from unfriending me (possibly for life)!
I usually blog 2 to 3 times a week, but sometimes life catches up with me and I get really busy. So my blogging may slow to once a week.
I am trying to find my groove with blogging, so at times I change topics. For the most part, my blog is about general family life stuff, our first year homeschooling, and my life as a military spouse.
Other Fun Stuff About Jenn:
