Meet Me


Hello and Welcome!


I am Krissy Parkinson — a thirty something mom of two living in sunny Sacramento California. In 2011, I was blessed with the birth of my first child. While I was overjoyed (and beyond exhausted) in my new role as a mother, I found myself needing an outlet — a way to feel productive and alive myself. I jumped online and soon discovered that there were many other mothers out there with the same questions, qualms and concerns that I had. I found I was not the only one who was sometimes bored, or stressed or lonely. I wasn’t the only one whose single, childless friends disappeared. I wasn’t the only one who’d forgotten how to watch anything other than Sprout, or speak like a normal adult or, heaven forbid, occasionally have a little fun even.


Soon after baby number two, I decided I needed to step away from the sippy cup and head back into the real world — the one where you can’t wear a bathrobe til 3 PM. I made a conscious decision to find what little joys I could in every day and make a minute for mama — my thoughts, my passions, my ideas. What’s more is I decided I wanted to share those minutes with…well, you, my new found friend.


So friend, whenever you stop in, you can expect to find some of the best advice, recipes, reviews and lolz on the interweb. Entering contests has become one of my favorite hobbies because it requires little time and effort and has a high return (we like this, right?). More than likely I’ll soon be including sweeps and giveaways as well. Best of all, you’ll find all these cool and fun things in one place so you can make YOUR minute count!


I am so very glad you stopped by and I do hope you’ll come back soon. In the meantime, feel free to take a look around and don’t hesitate to comment or contact with questions or suggestions. I’ll gladly make a minute for you!
