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'.

Surprise!

Last weekend the girls and I got to participate in our very first surprise birthday party!!

My husbands’ Aunt celebrated a big milestone birthday last week, so the family decided to get together and throw her a surprise party to celebrate! I had no clue how big of a production it was to pull a woman away from all of her duties and how hard it was going to be to surprise her, but we pulled it off! She has three sons who were all involved, along with her husband, in getting her out of the house. Her sons were actually at the house when she left and were able to time it right to where they arrived at the party before she did–she didn’t suspect a thing!

We hired someone to cater, and had a pasta bar with three different types of pasta, three different sauces–meat marinara, alfredo and a spinach mushroom and artichoke sauce. We also had salad and garlic cheddar biscuits. For dessert, I got to put some of my baking practice to good use and made a cake and lots of different types of cupcakes–chocolate, pumpkin and vanilla.

We ate, sang Happy Birthday and ate some more! We did a little dancing, chatting and a lot of laughing. It was a fun evening and a great birthday party if you ask me!
