Katherine and her husband, Christopher, grew up in Dallas and met at SMU. They have been married 12 years. While working full time and pregnant with their curly-haired Little Man (February 2015), Katherine completed her Master’s Degree in Communication & Leadership at Gonzaga University. She loves dining in Dallas’ local restaurants; chips and salsa are her weakness! When she’s not running after her family or busy with church activities, you might find her working on a homemade craft or two. You can catch up with her on Instagram.From a fourth grade teaching career in Richardson to managing a letterpress studio in the Design District of Dallas, Krystal finally found her calling with the not-so-simple life of motherhood. But motherhood can be lonely! It was only through an open call for contributors that she stumbled upon Dallas Moms Blog in 2012 and found the sense of community she’d been looking for. Since then, her role has grown from volunteer contributor to Managing Editor and now, Owner. Krystal has a passion for Dallas; a city she’s lived in her whole life, and wants to continue the tradition that was started with Dallas Moms Blog–building a community and uniting the moms who live here. She’s been married for her best friend and husband, Tim, for almost 14 years and enjoys spending time with her boys, Mark (2011), Zachary (2013), Nathan (2015), and baby boy #4 due Summer 2018. Her passions are eating cheaply, traveling often, and photographing every minute of it!Carly lives in North Dallas with her husband of six years, Will, her son, Mason (3) and a baby girl, Olivia (1). When she isn’t busy getting her spirited toddler a yogurt or juice, or loving on her sweet infant, Carly enjoys spending time like a good ol’ Texas girl hunting or on a laidback patio having a nice glass of Malbec. She is still amazed each and every day how it can be possible to love her kids so much. Her claim to fame is her record book aoudad that she shot after a grueling stalk in the Panhandle. If she isn’t outside playing with her kids, you can spot her at Target stalking up on clothes, diapers, groceries and all the “necessities.” Before Carly settled into her role as a mom, she worked with the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee and Allies in Service, a Dallas-based nonprofit that helps veterans and military families.An Arkansas native, Kat originally moved to Dallas on a four-month fundraising contract and quickly fell in love with the city. She worked in Texas politics and for some local and international nonprofits before attending graduate school at SMU. She is now mom to a headstrong and sassy little girl named Afton. She is passionate about pre and postnatal wellness and about supporting other mamas, helping them find community, and encouraging them to reach their own goals.She can often be found (toddler in tow) at Katy Trail, White Rock Lake, or trying out all the amazing food, culture, and community that Dallas has to offer. She loves farmers markets, SEC football, fresh flowers, and La Croix.Jennifer is a native North Texan, and lives in Richardson with her husband and two daughters.

Andrea misses the food and trends in Dallas, but loves spending time in the mountains with her husband and 3 minis – William (2010), Rae (2012) and Lila (2014).Her Pinterest board is full of craft and DIY pins that she will never do, her real craft side is in the kitchen making some good southern homemade meals.Katie grew up in Dallas, went to SMU, and spent 10 post-college years in Austin, where she and her husband Mick welcomed Gemma in 2011 and Ryker in 2013. They all moved to central Fort Worth almost 4 years ago and have found it to be quite fun and a great place for kids. Katie is horrible at social media but will admit to a preference for her Twitter timeline these days. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. She's forever down to watch any show that's British, supernatural, or on The CW.
