Tawnda Andrews

Tawnda Andrews met and married the love of her life, Shawn, in chiropractic college. Growing up in the Iron Range, she never thought she’d be this far south but the Mankato area was the perfect fit for a northern girl and an Iowa boy. Leaving their Mankato chiropractic practice in the skilled hands of her husband, Tawnda stays home and manages the home as well as the education of her six energetic kids (12 years, triplet 9 year olds, 4 years, and a 1 year old). She loves books (lots of them), movie nights with the family, making goals, homeschooling, and memory keeping. She blogs about #momlife, multiples, homeschooling, her weight loss journey, mom struggles, and the hot mess mom life at www.tawndaandrews.com. Her greatest desire is to encourage moms and remind them that they are part of an amazing community of women and that our collective goals are the same: to be good moms to our kids.

There is nothing special about Tuesday.  It can be a Wednesday if you prefer.  Or Sunday.  For me, it's a Tuesday. What am I talking about?  I'm talking about a day where you say NO...

Godzilla Won

Godzilla conquered Mankato, at least he did in 2015 and if you haven't seen him stalking town it's because you haven't driven over the bridge that connects Mankato and lower North Mankato.  There he...
