About Me

Hey, y’all! My name is Kristin Jonakin and I’m a no frills Southern mom of 3 wild boys under 5, meaning that for the last 5 years I’ve been pregnant or had something attached to my boobs.

As if being a boy mom weren’t hectic enough, I graduated with two degrees, started a construction company with my husband, and finally landed my dream job in a new pharmaceutical research project during that time frame. Then I got pregnant with my third surprise baby (thanks to Jack Daniel’s Honey).

I quit my dream job to become a stay-at-home mom. We moved in with my in-laws after realizing that being a working mom would come with a hefty daycare price tag of $30,000. 

When you marry into a redneck family, life gets pretty interesting. Who needs Real Housewives of Damn, You See The Size of That Rock on Her Finger!? When you have Country Momma Drama from the Sticks of Tennessee? 

You’ll find laughs, sass, how-to’s and tips on this blog, so saddle up!

We don’t hide our crazy in the south, we air it out on the front porch with our boots while sipping on a glass of sweet tea. Kick up your feet and let’s bless some hearts.
