Blog Take Over With Happily Ever Mock

Hi friends! 

I am Kelly Mock, and I blog over at  I'm a momma to 3 1/2 year old Hallie.  My husband Christopher owns a franchise custom T-shirt shop, and I run the social media accounts for his shop! We have a 8 year old Mini Aussie Puppy named Stella, she was our first baby, and very loved!

Hallie is my ninja ballerina! She takes ballet and karate and enjoys jumping in mud puddles dressed up in her favorite princess costumes! She is rough and tumble, but also the prettiest princess you ever did see. When I am not Momming, I enjoy baking, reading thriller novels and any reason to plan a celebration! I live on coffee and carbs! You can often find me perusing Target or belting out Journey songs in my car!  Feel free to follow me on social media @happilyevermock 

 A huge thanks to Steph for letting me take over here on her blog today! I can't wait for you to get to know more about me through the questions she asked, so without further ado:

1) Why did you start your mom blog?

I wanted a place to document Hallie growing up. To be able to save photos and memories. To write about the funny things she says and does so that we can look back on it together one day! One thing I didn't expect was meeting such an incredible group of fellow moms here in cyberland that I feel so connected to!  I have watched so many families grow and change over the last 3 1/2 years and it has been such an incredible experience! If you are thinking about starting a blog, do it! You wont regret it!  

2) Exciting up coming plans for you? And or your family?

I love this question! I'm super excited because Easter weekend my Dad is getting married to the most incredible woman! I am just so happy for my Dad and thrilled to welcome Linda into our family. Not to mention her precious kids and grandbaby! Hallie is going to be their flower girl and she's pretty excited too! She has been practicing dancing around with her basket and throwing invisible flowers, it's just the cutest! 

3) What do you wish you knew about motherhood before becoming a mom? 

I wish I knew how much having a child would change all the other relationships in my life. Not that my husband, my family or my friends are less important to me now. That's not it at all. But having a child is so time consuming, that I need to remember to make time for the other important people in my life. Lunch with the girls, date night with the hubby or brunch with my dad. Taking the effort to plan these things is so important.  

4) What is your most embarrassing motherhood moment to date?

Ugh I can't believe I'm about to share this, and to make it a little less embarrassing I'm going to have to do it without naming any names! It's an embarrassing secret I've been keeping since Hallie was a baby!

So before Hallie turned one, we were driving to an event with a family member. Said family member was inside a store and I decided to take that moment to change Hallie's diaper. Hallie had a serious constipation problem as a baby, so  I wasn't expecting a dirty diaper.  I had her laying on the seat of the car on the changing insert from the diaper bag. What could go wrong right? Well as I opened the diaper a small pellet of poop rolled out of the diaper, onto the seat of the car, and in a little crevasse between the seat belts. Mortified and noticing the family member walking out of the store and into the parking lot, I freaked out and spent what seemed like an eternity digging for the poop pellet with a baby wipe! Seriously in the nick of time I was able to grab it and shove it into the diaper like nothing happened and finished changing the diaper! Of course I am sure this family member was unsure why it took me so long to change a diaper, but thankfully they didn't say anything, and it has been mine and Hallie's secret ever since!

5) What is something you wish moms would talk about more often on Instagram and their blogs? 

For me at least it's getting in front of the camera. I want to make sure Hallie has plenty of photos of us together as she grows. Not to sound morbid, but when I am no longer here  I want her to not only have memories of our time together but photos to cherish as well. I wish everyone made this a priority! 

6) What are three words you AND your friends would use to describe you?

I had to poll my besties to help me answer this one. We came up with: Loyal, thoughtful and creative...and I pretty much almost cried hearing them describe me, so I'll add SENSITIVE for a bonus 4th word! 

Thanks again Steph for letting me take over today!
