Hey there, welcome to Live Love Texas (formerly Texas Type A Mom)! I’m Kelly, a millennial mom blogger and mama to two little girls – 7 year old Cakes and nearly 4 year old Cupcake! Learn more about my contributor, real life friend, and daughter’s future mother-in-law, Chrisi, below!
Not wanting to allow my type a to plan for their arrival, both of my daughters made their debuts into the world early. Cakes was a 31 week preemie and spent 40 days in the NICU, while Cupcake was a 36 week preemie and was spared any NICU time. Thankfully God spared both girls from any lasting issues and they’re 7 and 4 (where does time go?!).
I have one English bulldog – Dude (8) but still think of myself as a bully mama. My first dog as an adult, Stoli, was like my first child and tragically passed away in 2014 – gone but never forgotten. To me, my dogs aren’t just pets but a part of the family.
I grew up as an Air Force brat but have called Austin home for the last six years. After living all over, I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
Married my Type B best friend 15 years ago. What can I say? Opposites attract!
I’m a HUGE football fan and watch as much football as I can! I’m a Denver Broncos fan so to get all of those out of market games I have NFL Sunday Ticket on my PS3 so I don’t miss a thing. For the lasts several years I’ve been competing with my husband in our Fantasy Football League and it has taken my love of the game to a whole new level.
Follow along on my journey through parenthood from pregnancy to elementary school, product reviews (let me try before you buy), our family’s recipe wins, traveling with kids, and life here in Austin, Texas!
Let’s work together! I’m available for social media consulting, Twitter parties, sponsored posts, and ad placement. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Please note: emails will only come from this address and if you receive emails from any others, it is not legitimate.
