Lauren Curet

Lauren, a Shreveport, Louisiana native, moved south in the summer of 2010 to attend University of Louisiana at Lafayette. In the fall of 2011, she laid eyes on Ross Curet, her now husband of 4 years. It was the closest possible scenario of "love at first sight". Lauren is a stay-at-home mom of their two children - Maddox, 2 years old, and Regan Evangeline, born in May of 2019. Building a family and home with her husband is her greatest joy and accomplishment! When she isn’t changing diapers, you can find Lauren shopping BST pages, traveling all over Louisiana to visit family, out and about in the stores of Lafayette (carrying a toddler on her hip and an infant in her arms), or in the CC's Coffee drive-thru. Extra shots of espresso, please!

From Co-Sleeping to Crib

Before I was a parent, I was never going to co-sleep. How could you? How dangerous. How irresponsible. Fast forward to baby #2, and she’s either slept on me or been rocked to sleep and...

Please Be My Sweatpants Friend

Have you seen the popular Facebook post that’s been circulating about “sweatpants friends”? They’re the friends that see you undone in every way. The raw, real, messy you...and they love you anyway. I would...

A Mom’s “Me-Time” Prayer

Bedtime is usually a fight with my toddler, and our youngest “soothes” by breastfeeding. Bedtime is always what I’m watching the clock for, but it’s also our biggest “fight” of the day. On a...

Christmas in July

It’s hot as Hades here in south Louisiana. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that. There’s not a soul that doesn’t know it as soon as a door opens and the temperature...

Inner Struggle with Outer Appearance

Let’s talk body image - mom edition. More specifically and in my case? Stay-at-home-mom edition. I struggle on a daily basis with my appearance. Not only has being a mom changed my body, the way...

A Stolen Birthday

I had it all planned, set, and ready. I ordered invitations, decorations, a cake and cookies in advance. I excitedly mailed the invitations out before the stay-at-home order was issued - complete with stamps...

Who’s Next Door? :: The Closeness in Quarantine

We’ve been spending more than half of our time outside. I’m more than grateful that the Louisiana weather has been beautiful enough to play with the chalk, bubbles, and sprinkler. Daily walks are a consistent...
