About

Kris Marie – aka Mama Kalila.

Lets see…

I’m originally from West TX. I moved to Lubbock and went to LCU in 1999, grad in Dec of 2004.  I spent 3 of those summers in between going to Tanzania, East Africa which I absolutely loved.  It was a lot of fun and you’ll prob see quite a bit of that in my writing.

I moved here in the spring of 2005 on a whim, was planning to move overseas instead. I met Baba soon after.  We became friends first (kind of a funny story all on its own) and started dating 9 months later. 9 months after that we were engaged and then another 6 before we married on May 4, 2007.  I love him to pieces and am so greatful things worked out the way they did. We now have 2 gorgeous children who both amaze me and drive me crazy… Now why does that remind me of their Baba?!?

I’m somewhere between a stay at home mom and work at home mom…  I love being here w/ the kids… and my goal is to become a Hypnobabies (childbirth) Instructor in the next 5 years or so (so full time WAHM).  I’d like to do it on the sooner end, but know its more likely going to be closer to 5 or later.

I am a pregnancy, childbirth, parenting junkie. I love researching, reading, discussing everything about it.  Some of my beliefs have changed a little as we’ve gone, some haven’t.

I’ve also become crunchier as time has passed lol. I love finding natural remedies, cleaners, etc.

I’m Catholic… Raised Roman, now Maronite.  Love learning about all religions though.

I’ve been failing at the FlyLady thing for about 6 months or so now (maybe longer lol), but determined to stick with it.

I also love to write, which you’ll see here… but I’m also writing for the San Antonio Examiner and Natural Family Today.

I could prob go on, but I think I’ve given a good start right?

    I can’t believe it took me so long to realize that your blog had moved! I haven’t been caught up at all lately on my blog reading and I suddenly realized I hadn’t seen a post from your blog in a long time! I’ve updated the blog roll! So glad to have figured it out!

      I am so sorry! I knew I lost a few people in the move but my brain is… I don’t know where and I couldn’t figure out who all it was and everything. I’m having trouble keeping up too because the blogroll here doesn’t move with the new posts like on blogspot 😦
