Welcome to Life from the Lilie Pad! I am Kristen, a wife to my wonderful husband, John, and mom to an almost 3 year-old, Micah. We also have a 6 year-old Golden Retriever/Lab mix, Lilie, and we're expecting a baby girl in March 2013. I work full-time outside of the home as a meeting planner. I am fortunate enough to work in a corporate environment that allows me to work 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday. I work very few night or weekend hours. Even so, I find there are many challenges with working full-time and trying to manage a home. Join me as I work through them and try to find solutions that allow me to enjoy my family and life as much as I can!
