Welcome to our blog, we are glad you’re here! We love being moms is a blog we started because we believe that being mothers is a privilege! We want to shout out to the world that WE LOVE BEING MOMS! Sure, some days it's hard and crazy and we don't claim to know it all but we sure do love it!
We blog about: fun activities, theme days, fun snacks and crafts we enjoy with our children. We also share some of our favorite recipes, tutorials, printables, inspirational mom thoughts and quotes and some tips and tricks we have learned in our journey as moms. We hope to inspire moms (and dads) to spend quality time with their families.
Our blog schedule: Well, right now...we don't have one! We both feel really strongly that our family needs to be first! Blogging is our hobby....our families are our life! We blog when we want and have something meaningful to share. ; ) Thanks for understanding.
Why we blog: We both have our own private family blogs that we print and use as journals. When we “went private” we wanted a way to share our less personal information with the world. This blog was our solution. It's been a fun way to keep in touch and connect with other moms!
A little about us: You are probably wondering who is behind this blog and why we keep referring to “we” and “us.” We are Holly and Heather –twin sisters. We grew up in Utah and are the oldest in our family of 12...actually Holly is by a full minute! We love doing crafts and projects and coming up with fun activities to do with our kids.
~ Are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
~Graduated with our Bachelor's Degree in Dental Hygiene
~ Married our best friends in 2008...yep, the same year
~ Have 2 adorable children
All about Holly....
I have two children, both are BOYS!!! I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old! I LOVE them so much and even though some days I don’t feel very “put together" I’m so glad I have them.
My husband and I met in High School, but I had no idea that we would get married back then. After graduating from High School, I went away to college and he left on a 2 year LDS church mission to Sao Paulo, Brazil. We wrote letters every week and when he got home, we started dating again and were married 3 months later! ; ) I LOVE him so much and am so glad we will be TOGETHER FOREVER with our family. Our newest adventure is Medical School far far away from our families!
A few things Holly enjoys:
~ Anything Outdoors
~ Sports...I've always been a little bit of a tomboy that way
~ The color blue
~ Creating (something about doing something that stays done brings me a sense of satisfaction)
All about Heather...
I also have 2 children- a sweet and very energetic 3 year old boy and a darling 2 year old girl!
My husband and I also went to high school together but never really went on a date until after he had graduated (he is a year older then me.) He served a mission in Czech Republic, after he returned we went on a date and are still dating! My husband is currently working and preparing for graduate school where he plans to study business.
A few things Heather enjoys:
~ The color lavender (yep, not just purple….lavender)
~ Anything with BBQ sauce on it
~ Fruit smoothies and ice cream
~ Digital scrapbooking and design
~ Organizing and reorganizing (just ask my husband)
~ Running (I just run my first half marathon)
