Hi AMB, I'm Lindsey: Christian. Proud Texan. Wife to Ryan & Mama to Alexandra. I'm a SAHM but never actually "stay-at-home" --we go out everyday in the name of adventure & enrichment...and mama's sanity! Current faves are swimming, music, MOPS & hiking nature trails. When I'm not off traveling, in a barre workout class, or cooking dinner (ready at 6:30 sharp, don't mess with my schedule!), I blog about mom-friendly fashion, beauty products, and my motherhood journey at Blog Joie de Vivre.
