Meet That Mama | Ley from Rakas Kesä

Hey, I’m Ley and I blog over at rakas kesä. I am a Pinterest-addicted, wanderlusting, pseudo-crafty mama of a spirited preschooler named Audrey. I’m a single-mom, and I’m still friends with my ex {who is a fantastic father to our daughter}. I’m also a girlfriend, daughter, sister, best friend, {sometimes struggling} Christ-follower, and cat owner.  My blog is where I try to celebrate—and share—the beautiful things in life.

One goal for the next year … Pay off my debt (mortgage not included), and buy a new car (contradictory, I know)

Recent favorite mama moment … Anytime that my daughter looks at me and says “Maman, I love you” out of the blue.

New favorite blogs … Deer Circus Blog and Charlotte’s Web The Blog

Guilty pleasure … Spending four hours in the Jacuzzi with candles and a good book. Also eating Big Macs for lunch.

Your perfect day … Spending the day at a beach with Audrey; a beach with white sand, warm clear water, and a gentle breeze. Ok, and maybe a cold beer and some nachos.

Recently loved book … “Mean Mamas Rule” by Denise Schipani. It reinforced my notion that saying “no” to Audrey or having her clean her own room is actually going to help transform her into an independent and capable adult.

Favorite products for little ones … Right now, we are loving Crayola’s Dry Erase Activity Centre and Barbie Fashion Fairytale

Favorite Bible verse … Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Most prized household tip … It’s not a new idea, but I’m a big fan of meal planning. I sit down on Sunday mornings and plan my meals for the week, creating a grocery list at the same time. Then in the afternoon, Audrey and I head to the store and pick up what is on the list. I try to alternate protein dishes (fish, chicken, beef, and legume-based dishes are our favourites) and we always have a ‘fun’ night where we eat chicken nuggets or go out for dinner.

3 things on your to-do list …

… Oh so many ways to follow along …
