Let me introduce myself...

I figured since (maybe) many people who most likely do not personally know me might read this blog, whether now or someday down the road, it would be nice to have one of those starting posts to explain my "who, what, where, when, & why" ...so here it is.

My name is Kristen. I am 30 years of age. I have been with my soul mate, Brandon, for almost 6 years. We met on the Internet and 3 months later I left home in Florida & moved halfway across the country to Missouri. When I say pure bliss, I ain't lying...woooo. OK anyhow....

Here's us:



And within our great love for each other, came two absolutely wonderful baby girls.

McKenna Mae, who will be 3 on july twenty-seventh:
& then, SURPRIIIIISE, here's Brooklyn Sue, she turned one year on february eleventh this year:


We moved from Kansas City, MO to my hometown of Jacksonville, Florida at the first of this year. It's been dubbed one of my biggest mistakes of my entire life. But, we are finding our reasons for being here...finally, after almost 5 months.


Why a blog? Well...during these past 5 or 6 months and being a new family of four with two very small girls, I, as a stay at home mama & full time online college student, have made it my personal mission to cut costs, save money and not pay for convenience in a strong effort to conserve money in a way that we could see a humongous difference asap. I figured it would be cool to share what I do to make that difference and I wanted a place where I could share our journey as a family of four.


Blog name? Ha...that's what stopped me for a long time. Soooo.....I came up with MamaWinkle. For those that know me, yup, it is that simple.


For those of you lovelies that do not:
My two girls call me by my long awaited name I didn't earn til age 27, Mama. I know many of you are called that too, but I love it and Brandon calls me that too. I waited a long time for that title & there was a point in my life when I truly believed I would never earn that marvelous name. I never take it for granted.


Winkle? Easy....its part of our family name. We are all "Winkle's" in our family. Winkle is a term I've coined in my married family. And with that, my daughters are often called princesses, so there you have it.
MamaWinkle....my journey raising two princess Winkle's.


Welcome. Enjoy. & please, let me know what ya think.



Take Care,
