So, who am I? And what is so special about this blog?
That's a really good question; one I'm still working on. One I can hopefully gain more insight to through my blogging endeavors. But, I'm sure you're expecting something a little more specific than that, so let's start with..
My name is Lindsey. I am a whopping 28 years old now. Gasp! I am a married mom of three. I married my high school sweetheart, (insert 'Aww' here) Justin. He and I have been married for 5 years now. I have two boisterous boys, Alex(8) and Mason(6). And one sassy little girl, Izzy(4). They take up much of my time, as most kids do. However, I did decide to go back to school after 10 years of just being "mommy" because of some awesome friends and family and their profuse encouragement. I've decided to explore Medical Laboratory Technology. I am currently in my first year and I'm (surprisingly) kicking butt! So I'm wearing a lot of hats right now...mom, wife, student, chauffeur, cook, maid, etc.
After finally rejoining the real world of adults, I realized I'd lost a lot of myself through the journey of parenthood. I didn't have a style. I didn't have a taste. And certainly didn't have any "me" time! Quite frankly, if I had ever gotten any I wouldn't know what to do with it! So I decided I needed to take back a part of myself. I needed to figure out how to balance being Lindsey and being mommy. Dig down, reclaim myself and somehow make all these changes on very limited funds. With a household of kids and only 1 income, I have to figure out how to do it all and be pretty thrifty doing it.
Why the Blog?
Through this great revelation, coupled with inspiration from some awesome blogs, I've decided to start one of my own. If not to inspire someone else, to inspire myself. Keep myself going; keep myself motivated. Challenge myself to step outside of my comfort zone and think outside of the box.
So you will not find a model, trendsetter or "fashionista" (I really hate that word) here. It's just a real world mom, on a real world budget trying to balance a world of High Heels and Training Wheels.
