Welcome to Holy Mess of a Family!
My name is Briana, and I’m a mom to three boys & two bonus kids. Yes, that means there are seven of us! Being a mom is both my greatest achievement and hardest challenge yet and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m excited to have you on this adventure with me and to share everything with you, from our fertility journey, to parenting five kids in all different stages, to multiples, to food allergies, to not knowing what to do with FOUR boys. After all, I was only supposed to have girls. My mom, sister, and I had always outnumbered my dad. How was I supposed to know what to do with three boys?
I was born & raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL and have relocated to the suburbs of Nashville, TN. The beach is my happy place, and I am slowly moving my way further south to be closer to it.
After having my last babies, the twins, I realized I needed to make some changes to the way I was living if I wanted to be able to keep up with everything I had on my plate. This is where my love for fitness and nutrition comes into play. I quickly learned that the cleaner I ate and the more active I was, the more energy I had and better I felt.
I am an introvert who feels compelled to step out of my comfort zone to document this crazy, wild ride while hopefully helping someone else in the process or at the very least entertaining them. With seven people, a dog, & a bearded dragon all under one roof, you better believe there is rarely a dull moment. We don’t have it all figured out, but we roll with the punches, and when things get really bad, we just remember to laugh and to embrace the mess that is our family!
