Hello! Welcome to Life as Mama Bear. I’m Kristie, mom to Evie, the real star of the show around here. I started this blog in the midst of the newborn struggle when motherhood felt like nothing I had signed up for. The struggle is real ya’ll. I was there and slowly but surely made my way out and have settled into my most important and beloved role as Mommy.
I am a Michigan State University Alumni (GO GREEN!) where I studied Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics. MSU is where I met my husband, Stan. We been married nearly 5 years now and live in the Great Lake State of Michigan.
I love all things food, being outside, traveling, camping, and spontaneous adventures. I like to think I am crafty and always have way too many projects going on and not enough time in the day to finish anything.
I was a stay at home mom for nearly 2 years until I went back to work full time as a Nutritionist at our local health department. I long to work part time but enjoy working outside of the home and could never go back to being a full time SAHM.
I’m so glad you’re here and look forward to sharing our adventures, our trials and errors, and anything else that may be helpful along the way. I’d love for you to reach out and say hi if you feel so inclined because I don’t know about you, but I could always use some more mom friends!
