WHO is Lakeon??

Before I start, I'd like to thank Michelle for allowing me to become a part-time co-blogger on Mama's Baby Cupcakes.

I'm Lakeon, prounounced lay-ken. (I get asked a lot). Born and raised in good ole Southern Mississippi. I know, I know, I don't look southern but I have the accent to prove it. I'm a stay at home mommy to miss Chloe Michelle and she's more than a handful at times, but I love being here with her. My husband, Jacob, works in the oil field on 24 hour call so I get pretty lonely when he's gone for days at a time and I'm left at home.

In my spare time I love working on graphic design. I'm not a PRO at it nor do I have a degree, but I do enjoy it. I'm also a painter, I do scrap-booking, I collect shot glasses and energy drink cans. (Weird hobby, I know.)

This year from January - July I dropped 35 pounds! I'm very proud of myself because it definitely wasn't easy. Eating right and exercise is the key to losing weight and with a little help from myfitnesspal APP on my android phone, I was able to get myself to a weight I am comfortable at.

I'm very excited to start blogging here and doing occasional reviews on children and baby related items.
