At times I still feel the culture shock of being in a place where you have to specify UNSWEET tea when you order, and I will never get used to scheduling all events around football, but I do firmly believe that you won't find nicer people anywhere in the world than in Oklahoma! I am a single mom and mama bear to a 14 year old girl and a 10 year old boy who are the loves of my life. We live in Edmond, and I am a serial entrepreneur with a passion for loving on moms and their kids! I love to read, write and go for long drives anywhere pretty. I have a great big laugh and if we meet, I will pretty much be sure you are my newest best friend.I grew up in sunny California and moved to Oklahoma to attend college. That is where I met my amazing husband, and now we are here to stay! I live in Blanchard with my husband and three kiddos. We also have two standard poodles who we all adore and consider a part of our family! My family likes to stay busy, and we are always on the go exploring Norman and OKC.

I grew up an Army Brat traveling through Europe and my family retired in Colorado Springs. We’ve loved watching OKC evolve the past nine years. My grown up job is working full-time in marketing. I’m a foodie, hula dance with a local Hawaiian group, love to travel, serve at North Church and in the local community. Our chihuahua corgi mix puppy’s personality is so big, his name is Sarge. Our home is filled with prayer, laughter, cooking, playing corn hole, and cheering on the OKC Thunder and Denver Broncos.

I’ve lived in Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Germany twice, and this is my third time in Oklahoma City! I graduated from Texas Christian University in 2009 (go Frogs!) and commissioned into the military that same year. I met my charmingly funny husband while I was a bright-eyed Combat Communications Officer at Tinker AFB. I separated from the military in 2013 and now focus on raising our rambunctious and precocious two year old, Harrison. Our family spent the last 3 years living in Germany. While stationed abroad, we toured to over 20 countries, that’s when I stepped outside my comfort zone and discovered my love of travel and adventure. Aside from sharing my love for all things local, I’m a coffee addict and foodie who enjoys binge watching “The Great British Baking Show” and creating vintage wood signs in the garage studio while listening to my non-fiction audiobooks. My biggest love of all is my son, he challenges me everyday, while teaching me patience and unconditional love. Having him showed me the beautiful chaos that is motherhood, and I am so excited to connect and share with you all!Oklahoma City has been home for me from day one. My husband Chris and I met at our church in OKC in 2013 and were married a year later. He works for the FAA, and I work my Real Estate and health and wellness businesses from my home-office.

I met my husband Will while in school and we moved to his home town of Tulsa to begin our family where we resided for 8 years. We were relocated back to OKC about 3 years ago and while I really miss my Tulsa friends, I absolutely LOVE being home. We have 3 crazy, super loud, extremely fun kiddos ages 6, 4, and 2. My kids are my everything and I could have never anticipated the roller coaster of chaos that is my life now. We just recently moved on to 5 acres in Guthrie and I am terrified and also very excited for this next chapter in our lives. My favorite things are spending time with family & friends, music, going to the lake, reading, gardening, cherry blow pops, Dr. pepper, crafting, cleaning, and fireworks. We are trying to raise our kids to be kind, loving, respectful human beings and to truly understand that no two humans are the same and to love people for who they are. I am very excited to share my sweet yet crazy family with you and connect with other moms!I grew up in Norman, Oklahoma, where I graduated high school in '95. After moving out of state to Louisiana and later working as a court reporter in Virginia, I moved back in '13. I met and eventually married my husband in '14, and on our one year anniversary discovered I was pregnant with our delightful, crazy adventure of a little boy. Phineas was born July 3rd of '16, perfect in nearly every way except being born with clubbed feet. The journey to get that corrected has been stressful sometimes, but parenting this boy has been the greatest joy I have ever experienced. I can't wait to see what the future holds for our family.Kelly was born near Alva, grew up in Enid and then near Miami, Oklahoma. She met her handsome husband Charles while they were both students at OSU and were working at the old Bobo’s Restaurante Y Cantina in Stillwater. They were married in 1992 and became parents five years later, first to Miranda, now 19, and then after a five-year-long recovery period, to Janie, now 14, from which they have not really recovered. Kelly has been a freakishly happy stay-at-home-mom for nearly two decades, and has more hobbies than is probably healthy for one to have. When she is not outside tending to her flowers and shrubs, she may be making jewelry, sewing or quilting, working on her watercolor painting skills, or baking something scrumptious. Occasionally, her hobbies are interrupted by housework. Volunteering for her children’s schools and arts programs has been a pivotal experience for Kelly. Proud to be a Drama Mama and a Choir Booster, she has worked hard to support the fine arts in education because she has seen the positive impact these activities have on student lives. Kelly is very happy to be putting her BA in English to good use, by helping to teach ACT Test prep workshops, writing a fictionalized family memoir, and with OKC Moms Blog, making a contribution from the perspective of a mom to older kids.Kortney was born and raised in Oklahoma and now lives in Edmond with her husband and two puppies. In 2017 they opened their home to foster care and one day are hoping to build a permanent family.

When she isn't working she loves to spend time cooking in the kitchen, snuggling with her foster babies and puppies, and date nights with her husband.I went to college at Oklahoma Christian University where I met my husband of nearly ten years.

Now I am a breadwinning wife and mom. I have 2 amazing and young kiddos, a boy and a girl. We also have 2 silly mini dachshunds that are like living with a pair of cartoon characters.

A stay-at-home mama since Baby #3 was born, Stacy has stayed busy keeping her children alive and relatively entertained. She loves her little crazy crew fiercely and is enjoying returning to all of their favorite local haunts. When she’s not chasing her kiddos, Stacy is likely traveling or daydreaming about traveling. She also enjoys coffee shops, copious amounts of “cop drama” shows, and perusing Pinterest for ideas that have little chance of ever getting done. But they’re good to have. Just in case. s.I am a higher education administrator currently working at OU. My husband (Gerard) and I live in Midwest City with our energetic two year old son Gerard II.
