About Lena

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.

Lena Swing

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!
