About Me

photo with kermit and miss piggyHello there! My name is Crystal and I’m a 30’s something wife, mom and wanna-be storyteller. I live in Texas, enjoy the warm weather and pretty much spend my days in my beloved flip-flops.  I am married to the man of my dreams and the person who makes the hardest times in life more manageable.

Together we have three wild and crazy children.  Taylor, 14, is the oldest and she definitely keeps us on our toes. Every day she amazes me with her smile. Rylan, 11, is all boy and a handful of energy. He’s smart, he’s funny, and he definitely has the “middle child syndrome.” Then there’s Peyton, 9, who is the baby and he makes sure to flaunt it to the others daily.  Although life as wife and mom is extremely chaotic and unpredictable, I can’t imagine my life without these four people and coffee!  Oh, and chocolate!

My desire with Simply Being Mommy is to be a place where you can come to:

  • find easy recipes that are a good fit for your family
  • find crafts that you can make with your children
  • find seasonal DIY’s to make every season special
  • see which vacation spots are perfect for families
  • find a place where you fit in and connect with someone else who get it

I don’t claim to be an expert in anything except trying to make everything work. I don’t have the answers or the solutions to all of life’s problems, and I don’t claim to. But I do want the best for my family, just like I do for your family.

I like to think of Simply Being Mommy as an online magazine for parents in every stage of life. As you connect with my family through my posts, I want to connect with yours. You are always free to email me, send me a message on Facebook, tweet at me, etc.

What you’ll find on the pages of this site is a mixture of sponsored and non-sponsored content. I enjoy working with brands that fit in naturally with my family’s lifestyle. While I normally do earn an income on sponsored posts, I will never recommend or write about something that I can’t stand behind. This blog is my source of income and working with brands that I love help to pay the bills that come with owning a website. You’ll also see banner ads throughout the site. Again, these ads are there to help pay the bills.

You may also notice on posts that I link to Amazon for products that I’ve personally bought and used for a craft, recipe, or DIY. If you decide to make a purchase by clicking on one of those Amazon links, I’ll earn a very small commission at no extra charge to you. When you purchase through those links, you are helping to keep the site up.

I know this has “About Me” as a lot of words, and if you’ve read this far, BLESS YOU! You’re a trooper. I want you to know me, the person behind most of the content here. I’m really an open book, with a passion for families of all kinds. I hope you’ll join me.
