Just another mom blog…

Behind the scenes of every good Christmas card picture is a mom yelling at her family to stand up straight and smile.

Ahrens at Home is a parenting and lifestyle blog that follows the daily adventures of our family of five in Southern California. We love entertaining (mom was an event planner pre-kids!), adventures in the outdoors and celebrating life’s little moments.

I hope to encourage other moms to laugh and enjoy motherhood, spilled milk and all.


The Ahrens

College sweethearts hailing from God’s Country aka Iowa.  My husband and I moved to Southern California a little over five years ago for Matt’s graduate school program at USC.  We fell in love with the California sunshine and couldn’t bear to leave. So now we’re raising up three blonde babies and typing out the tale for you right here.

You’ll also find my thrifting scores and house tinkering, plenty of parenting fails, and of course, parties and holiday fun sprinkled in.
