A Late Introduction

February 15, 2013

Hey everyone! So I keep meaning to introduce you all to Kelly – She’s an in-real-life friend of mine, and a blogger over at MuddyFlowers.com.

Kelly and I first met at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) at Church – and over time and with the help of some other mutual friends of ours, we’ve become closer.

Kelly has five kids- yep… five! EEK! I’m not sure how she keeps it together so well, but it sure gives me a bad rep as a mama of only two.


She is truly an amazing woman both through the ways that she’s influenced my life through Christ, as well as being a great example of parenting and marriage.

Kelly has done the ‘blogging thing’ a few times, but not so seriously as she is right now. She’s working on gaining more followers over at MuddyFlowers.com, and getting her content going. She’s doing some pretty amazing things as far as just beginning her blog again, and I’m thoroughly impressed!


Meanwhile, I’ve been taking a new perspective on blogging and time spent with my family and… well.. working outside of the home as a Dental Hygienist – so I’ve been passing on a lot of great opportunities lately.  Then I realized that the things I’m passing on are things that Kelly might have been interested in, so naturally, she’s progressed to be a second set of hands around GrinningCheektoCheek!

Right now she’s working on the HTC 8X phone series, and several other reviews with and without giveaways, and even some content ideas.

Kelly would love a shout-out if you’ve got a minute! Leave a comment here, or head over to her site (MuddyFlowers.com) and leave a comment on her page – or go like her on Facebook!

    Welcome to the mommy bloggers Kelly! 🙂 I’m one myself but with work (2 jobs) and a 5 month old baby boy it’s really hard to keep it up so I commend you for wanting to do it again with 5 kids! 🙂

    • Thank you Carlyn and Liz, I really enjoy being able to share our lives with everyone. I have been so busy I have didn’t notice Amy’s into of me. I hope I can keep up with Amy! She is a wonderful blogger and friend.

  6. Lovely photos and welcome, Kelly!

  7. Welcome, Kelly! Looking forward to reading more from you!

  8. Good luck on your blog!

  9. I like the qualifier of “real life friend”. The internet has really led people to disengage from actually knowing people and they instead have a circle of friends they will never meet, who may or may not even be real.

  10. I followed Kelly on pinterest.

    • Awesome David, thanks for following me on Pinterest. I think some people chose not to go out into the real world and make real face to face friendships because it is hard work and it takes time/energy. Online is easy because I don’t have to get out of my pjs to met you all 🙂

  11. Good luck, Kelly!

    Beautiful pictures! Good luck, Kelly!

    I have 6 myself. It is super awesome, and keeps holidays super fun!

  14. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
