About me
My son, “Buddy”
My Step Daughter, Haven

Hey! Thank you for visiting my blog. I figured I should probably introduce myself so here is a little bit about me.


My name is Carmen and I am a 22 year old working mother to a baby boy, a step mom to a  5 year old girl with ADHD and a wife to a third child… err I mean loving husband. We have a smelly dog and a bitch of a cat that we keep around because they make the kids happy and my husband won’t let me get rid  of the dog. I reside in a crappy town in Iowa where the most common thing to do is crack and the only other thing to do is to stroll around Wal-Mart. Sounds lovely right? I need to move.

I am very fascinated by all things health. Before I got pregnant I lost around 80lbs due to diet and exercise and I am currently trying to lose the dreaded “mom belly”. I have a love of all things beauty and I have been known to spend a crazy amount of money on beauty products. It is a guilty pleasure.

I believe Mondays are the worst day of the week & that coffee is a magical elixir.
