Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! This is my About page. If you are a brand rep, you may be interested in my Advertising page.
My name is Lena.
I’m a CPA turned stay-at-home-mom of 3 little boogers ages 2, 4, and 6.
By day I stay at home with my kids and serve on the board of a local non-profit that feeds hungry children over the weekend.
As my schedule allows, I blog about family finance, kids activities, fun with kids, holidays, and fitness. I also like to write about ways to give back and finding time for yourself in the midst of motherhood (which I know is nearly impossible some days).
Here are a few posts that will tell you a little bit more about my life:
About losing 50 lbs after baby #3.
My open letter to moms with three children under the age of 5: Dear Mom of a Preschooler, a Toddler, and a Baby
The result of a former
addiction reliance on couponing to keep our household budget on track: Coupon Tips for Beginners
My e-book 25 Ways to Get Exercise at Home (No Gym Required!) for times when I just couldn’t make it to the gym but was determined to lose the weight!

And did I mention I have a little bit of a to-do list / printables obsession?!
And I love hosting playdates!
Last but not least…..one of my life’s passions is FINANCIAL LITERACY (I’m a licensed CPA). I write quite a bit about family finances. I like helping other moms figure out ways to save money and make money from home. Here is a sampling of my finance posts:
