Hey everyone! Welcome to Mommy Minute, because every mom just needs a minute. I started this blog as a way to share my mommy minute with other mommies. This blog will feature posts such as product reviews, subscription box unboxings, cleaning posts, organizing posts, DIY projects, family vlogs, videos from my Youtube channel, and anything else that makes me want to take a minute. (See guys, not every minute that mommy needs is a stressful minute. Sometimes we just want to reflect. Take note, husbands.)
My family consists of:
myself, Shandi Messmer: I am 24 years old (with a birthday this month!), married to the most amazing and helpful husband in the world. We have two (and a half) beautiful children. We live in a gorgeous house that we had custom built in a beautiful new development in the sunshine state of Arizona. I am a SAHM. I am seriously one of the luckiest people ever. I love subscription boxes. They make the mundane task of getting the mail fun + add a nice little bonus of surprises all month long. It’s seriously like buying yourself a mystery present. I currently subscribe to over 20 boxes each month and I can’t wait to share them with you! I am very OCD and am an organizing freak. I love coming up with new systems to make our lives easier and my house look nicer. I love doing DIY projects, especially with my kids. We do go out and have some adventures from time to time. Those are always a blast and I’ve been looking for a reason to make some home movie-esque vlogs about them. I love shopping, but even more so, I love finding really good deals. I might have a slight shopping problem, but admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?
my husband, Kylor Messmer: Kylor does not like his age being discussed, so lets just say he is the older out of the pair. He works as a Finance Manager at a local car dealership, a job that he is weirdly in love with. He loves spending time with the family, especially when our kids want to play on his guitar or dance to really loud music. He loves cars, alcohol, Marvel movies and Gibson guitars. He’s a simple man with fancy taste. And the love of my life. <3.
my son, Gibson Messmer: Gibson is turning 3 years old this November and is a spirited wild child. He aims to be exactly like his dad, down to refusing t-shirts most days in exchange for collared button-up shirts. I’m pretty sure if they made cuff links for the 3-year old aspiring businessman, he would be first in line. He loves Mickey Mouse and Blaze the Monster Machine, as well as helping to cook and clean. He is an amazing big brother and is always right there to help his little sister and tuck her in at night. He recently completed potty training and has very minimal accidents, which makes for a very happy mommy.
my daughter, Monroe Messmer: Monroe is 16 months old and, more then anything, loves annoying her older brother. She loves princesses and her favorite Piggy Bank toy. She prefers to watch SpongeBob SquarePants and Despicable Me. She is obsessed with putting on and taking off her shoes and hates having her hair done in the mornings. She recently moved into a “big girl” bed, and is not super thrilled with the idea of losing her crib.
our newest addition, Ramsey Messmer: a beautiful little girl, expected in late January of 2018. I am currently 21 weeks, 6 days pregnant. We have decided on a nursery themed and are in the process of setting her new room up. You can check my Instagram at the top of this page for pictures of our baby shopping process :). We are so thrilled to be adding our third child to our family. Discussions of a fourth child of still taking place, so for now, I’m just focused on enjoying this pregnancy and spending time with my kids before my youngest becomes a Big Sister.
I’m very active on my Social Media accounts, so if you’d like to follow our families story, or just wanna spend a few mommy minutes with us, stick around and check out the social media accounts listed above. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for the Messmers <3
