Valentine's Day

OUR LITTLE VALENTINE'S!!!! LOVE THEM SO MUCH!
Hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's Day!!! We sure did miss our man in our life!!! We are now 4 1/2 months away from this 15 month tour being over and I can definitely say I cannot wait!!! I don't know how single moms do it!! Its tough!!! And thats all there is to that!! We didn't do anything for Valentine's day. Just our normal routine like we do everyday!! The girls took valentine's to school to exchange with their friends and thats probably about it!! They have 20 kids in their class so you can only imagine how much candy they got and that they want to eat it all at one time!! NOPE!! NOT HAPPENING!!! haha!!! Anywho, hope everyone had a great day! I get to go visit Dave in about 5-6 weeks and so excited about seeing him and possibly getting to tour a little bit of Turkey this time!!! Time just needs to speed up so that day can get here!!!

3rd Birthday

Ok...where oh where has the time gone haha!!! I am posting about the girls 3rd Birthday that was over a month ago!!! Better late than never!



Ok, so there birthday was on a Tuesday this year. We went to dinner and got them a cake and sang to them at the restaurant with just me and the girls and grandma and grandpa! They had been sick with strep throat and had to get a penicillin shot that day :( Poor babies!! But after that shot and a nap they were almost 100% better!! It was like magic!!

ME AND THE GIRLS ON THEIR ACTUAL BIRTHDAY!!


We had their party at Chuck E Cheese this year! They love it because they just run around to all of the different rides, mainly the merry-go-round ponies ha!! But hey they enjoy it!! We had family and friends and a few of their friends from school came to play as well!!! They had a great time!!! I still can't believe my little preemie babies are already 3 :( So here are a few pictures from their special day!!!

Working Mom of 3 year old twins



Im linking up to Kelly's Korner blog working moms post. I have never done this before, but I thought it would be neat to enter!


My name is Kristen! I am the wife of an SSgt in the Airforce and a mommy to 2 beautiful twin girls! Currently my husband is on a 15 month tour in Turkey while I am here in Texas with our girls staying with my parents while he is gone! It is tough most days and we miss him like crazy! I was staying at home with the girls, but we live in the middle of no where and we would run out of fun stuff to do, they would get bored with me, and we are just so far away from towns to do any play dates with our friends. So I enrolled them in full time daycare so they can interact with kids their age. In order for me to do that, I started working with our family insurance agency selling home and auto insurance. It also gives me some me time since my husband is away right now.

Here is what our weekdays look like! I take them to school, I work from 9-3. Then I have time to get in a quick workout in before picking them up from school. The best part of my day is when I pick them up from school! They are so excited to see me when I walk through the door they sprint as fast as they can to give me a hug!! Then we rush home, cook dinner, eat, take baths, get ready for bed and probably by 7 or 8 is when I get to sit down and relax. I know with by me working it doesn't give me much time with them. I stayed at home for the first 2 years of their life. But to help time go by quicker while their daddy is in Turkey we have to keep busy. And with the girls in daycare and me working...it keeps my mind off things and the weeks seem to fly by now!!


So with all that said, its tough. Im married, but being a single working mom and trying to raise twin girls so they can have the best life they can have!! So I have to give props to all the single mommies out there that do this all of them time! I don't know how yall do it, but I know just to deal with it and put the kiddos first!! They are my first priority and this is just a little bit of time that will pass!!! Can't wait til our family is back together again!!


Dave has been gone a year in April. His tour in Turkey is up in July and then we are off to a new journey in England for 3 years!! Gotta love the military life!! New adventures and seeing the world!!


Would love to meet other moms out there like me and have the same things in common!!
