Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

Enough Snow and Ice Already!

This winter has been one of the coldest that I can remember.  Any other winter we would be begging for snow at least once, but honestly I can say that I am tired of it and I am ready for it to go (more so the ice than the snow).

I chose to live in eastern North Carolina for a lot of reasons, but the snow and ice wasn’t one of them.  People underestimated the roads from the storm.  Ice is treacherous and can cause a lot of problems when it causes branches to break off into the roads or onto power lines from the weight.

I think the straw that broke the camel’s back was losing power with it so cold outside.  We only lost power for 2 hours or so and it was 59 degrees in the house before we finally got it back.  I am glad we got it back as quick as we did because my hubby was at work and I had no idea how to work the generator to get some heat.

I don’t know how women do it when their husbands are deployed.  I don’t think I could do it!  I have the utmost respect for them!  The other big problem besides losing power is missing so much school.  We have changed half days to whole days, added a day onto the end of the school year and now we have a make up day scheduled for a Saturday.
