About Laurel


I am Laurel and I am the middle child. The very best middle child in my whole family! I am a mom to 4 little rambunctious boys. There is constant wrestling, then laughing, then crying at my house. It is a vicious cycle that cannot be broken…I have tried. My kids are loud and wild and perfect. I love them to pieces. I married my high school love. He recently finished veterinary school and we moved back home to Utah.

At my house we keep it real. Most meals are quesadillas in the microwave, or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Occasionally I will make something really fancy, like a quesadilla in a pan with chicken in it…what! I really like to bake though. I love to make cookies and cupcakes and pies. Maybe it is sugar that I like, not baking. Whatever it is, I like it.

Random Facts: I sleep with my eyes cracked open…creepy. I am a night owl (I am writing this at 1:01am). I love Joni Mitchell. I hate to go shopping with other people. I am an introverted extrovert. I have lived in 10 different places since I got married 10 years ago. Never do that. Moving is the worst.  I love 72 hour kits.  I am a water bottle hoarder.  My husband loves the water bottle hoarding thing so much.  I love being one of The Mamas Girls!
