My name is Kristyn Dingman and I am a body positive mama and wife who lives in Sunny Peoria, Arizona.
I have always been a fan of other fellow mom bloggers and I decided to make my own version. I wanted to share real life situations with others who can relate. I have seen so many other blogs that show us the sparkly perfect life that others have but I am ready to see some real life stuff and not just the glamour. Sure, there may be times when life seems too good to be true, but there are always going to be bad days. This concept is something I plan to share. I also am a big advocate for empowering women and positive body image. My big goal is to influence others who are struggling with self love and give them the inspiration to push toward a positive mindset about their self image. I want to share it all! The good, bad and ugly.
I studied at Northern Arizona University with a Major in Public Relations and 2 minors in photography and studio art.
I have been with my husband since we were in high school and I love him more and more each day. He is my rock and supports me in so many ways. We bought our first house in Phoenix, AZ and lived in it for 3 years before we decided to move into our dream home in Peoria, AZ. We got married in March of 2016 and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.
Then came along Benjamin. He has made our world so incredibly bright. He is everything we could ever ask for in a baby and we love him to pieces. He is such a smart boy just like his daddy.
In March of 2020, we had our second son, Bowen during the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was a rough and scary time but we were able to power through it and become a healthy family of 4.

I was born in Las Vegas, NV but I grew up in the valley of the sun Phoenix, AZ. We purchased our second home and currently reside in Peoria, AZ.

What is your guilty pleasure?
I am a big fan of any kind of shopping. Grocery stores, clothing, makeup, home décor, diy projects, everything! I go grocery shopping at least twice a week because we eat a lot of fresh produce. Clothing is always a mix of places. I am a curvy girl with a larger bust so shopping can sometimes be frustrating but I still enjoy it. Makeup is always good to shop for all year round. I like both drug store and high-end brands. Home décor is something I absolutely love! I go to TJ max, Target, Home goods, Ross, World Market and Kirkland's for all my home décor items. I also am a big fan of Lowe’s. I love walking through and seeing the possibilities for a new project.

Tell us a little about your kids?

I can't wait to grow with these guys and show them what a strong, confident mother looks like. Both my boys are are the Autism Spectrum and we are navigating life through this new adventure.
