ABOUT yours truly

Hello! I'm Justine. I'm a self-proclaimed cool mom. I am also wife, free-spirit, ambivert, semi-fit, semi-healthy, lover of food and lover of life. I am a teacher turned slay-at-home-mom. I received my Bachelor's from UNLV and was awarded my Masters of Science in Education for Curriculum and Instruction in April 2017. I'm a proud first generation Filipina. I was born and raised in the MidWest, grew up on the West Coast, and currently living wherever the military sends us (right now, its Singapore! but we've lived in SEVEN different places in the eight years we have been married 😳😱).
Other than hanging with my family, I like to cook, read, watch unhealthy amounts of Netflix, and nap. When I'm not blogging, reading, taking care of a kid, or hanging with my husband, I'm usually Yelping a new restaurant to try, figuring out our next family adventure, or watching drag queen transformations on YouTube. You can read a little more about me here!
I love and take care of four handsome gentlemen. My oldest, Caleb who is 7, is an aspiring ninja popstar soccer player engineer. He loves anything and everything about dinosaurs, squids, and octopus's. He's a super helper and my right hand man when dad is deployed.
Isaac is my middle son, he's 4. He loves singing, dancing, playing soccer, reading, and telling jokes. He's careful, thoughtful, and totally reckless.
Lucas is my baby! He's 2. He likes music, waffles, screaming, stealing your food, and hitting his brothers for no reason. He's very stubborn, has really funny hair, and is does not care what other people are doing because whatever he's doing is cooler.
The last and most important dude I take care of is my husband, Jay, who is in the military. Don't ask me what he does because it's really hard to keep track of all those acronyms. He likes things like cereal late at night, chips at any time of the day, dad jokes, lifting weights, Kobe Bryant, his car, and getting haircuts.
