The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

Happy Hour #31 is with my friend Erin MacPheson. Erin is a stay-at-home mom by day and a writer and amateur chef by night.  She is the author of more than nine books, including The Christian Mama's Guide series and the Hot Mama series. She lives in Austin with her three kids (ages 9, 7 and 3), her husband and her trusty Golden Retiever, Jack.

Jessica N. Turner is the founder of the popular lifestyle blog The Mom Creative, where she documents her pursuit of cultivating a life well-crafted. Additionally, she is a writer for HuffPost Parents and DaySpring's (in)courage, an advocate for World Vision, a regular speaker at blogging conferences nationwide, and an award-winning marketing professional. She and her husband, Matthew live with their three young children in Nashville, Tennessee.

In this episode we talk about parenting topics such as going from 2 to 3 kids and how hard that could be. How Jessica feels about working outside the home and that she doesn't receive any guilt from doing that instead of being a stay at home mom. How moms tend to put ourselves last in world of taking care of people in our lives. What date nights look like for the Turner family. We also chat about our latest Netflix binges, and books we're reading. Jessica wrote a post that went viral about moms embracing themselves, their bodies, and wearing that swimsuit each year no matter how we feel about our bodies.
