Welcome, I'm Laura the creator of Real Momma!

Real Momma is a lifestyle blog about breaking the chains of domestication and chasing after the woman you've always been while still being the mom you are!  Just keeping it real while finding that balance in life we are all searching for.

The kids, Cheyenne and Dustin are 13 and 9, they're always up for an adventure and have become my two assistants in many aspects of the blog.  They grow up so fast that sometimes it is nice to hit the pause button amongst all the chaos and just enjoy the special moments.  Sometimes that is easier said than done.  We're not perfect we have our ups and downs just like any family and my house well that's never clean!  We love hiking with our family dog, camping and spending time together.

Kids In the Kitchen

I'm a Netflix junkie, wine drinker and pretty much a woman of all trades – true story I can even change a tire.  I love traveling and exploring new places, sometimes I go it alone while others I have the whole family in tow.  The slow cooker is my best friend – you'll love my chicken taco soup!

Cheyenne is my travel buddy, assistant and willing to put almost anything to the test. We've been creating some fun videos together like our tips for having a trash-free lunch.  I have ambitious goals to love the skin I'm in through healthy eating and exercise, trying to get my body back while striving to fit into my closet full of clothes.  When I get a few moments to myself I like to sleep, what Mom doesn't.

When it comes to being a wife I like to keep Frank on his toes!  I even started watching NASCAR with him.  I might of even made him a little jealous when I visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame while in Charlotte, NC.  We try to escape for a date night which usually involves a sporting event.  To me marriage is all about teamwork and growing together while still having our separate lives.  I think it is important to still be an individual while still being a Mom and wife.

Life's too short so I'm making the most of it by living simply and having more fun.

Real Momma and family

I think it goes without saying but just in case you didn't know…I write the posts on this blog – other than guest posts which I make sure to note – and all opinions including reviews and recommendations are my own.  I manage the blog myself and do not claim to know everything or that anything in life is easy, I'm here to share my story nothing more, nothing less.  I may ramble at times or share my personal opinions and thoughts which I recognize everyone has so you may love it or hate it, either way I think we all can contribute to the bigger picture.  You might find a few affiliate links here and there that I make a small commission from, not costing you anything extra, and I truly appreciate it without that my blog wouldn't be possible.
