About Diva Ma ... In a nutshell.

I have managed to master that Mommy Stare. You know the one that your mama gave you that made you do a complete 180 in whatever it was that you were doing? Whether it's the much needed attitude adjustment or that "stop playing in this store right now" moment, with that stare, you knew you'd better get right.... right then and there.

Well, I'm a 30 year old mom and yes I take pride in that stare. I love my 3 children to death, but I take pride in the fact that they are scared of me sometimes. Why? Because mama is crazy! They know it and they'd better adhere to it. LOL. Because mama can't handle no bad children!

I'm an Army spouse. A stay at home mom. Have been for a few years. Tried my hand at the outside job life, but it didn't work for me, for our family. If you've ever been in the military world, you'd know why it's a little difficult. So I chose to stay at home and raise my little munchkins for a little while, at least until I can figure out what I wanna be when I grow up.

Our Home

We live in in a little town near a Army base. Really little. But luckily the Big City is close by and yes, I can get to a mall in about 15 minutes. (Great when I need a shopping fix) I love my area. If you have no idea where that is, just know that I'm a Georgia Peach!

I love this blogging thing. It's given me a much needed outlet. Quite often I'd rather stay home and read you guy's blogs than do out to lunch with friends. Sad I know, but I'm a reader and this gives me that chance to read again that I seemed to lost in mommyhood. I'll keep bloggin' these real life mom stories if you guys keep doing the same!

We stopped at Wendy's during this Blog Trip

Boy did this Blog Trip tire them out!

HI THERE! I'm a military brat myself. Of course, my dad was in the military so I know about moving around quite often all too well.

I have also mastered that mommy stare. My kids know that I mean business when they feel it burning a hole in the back of their skull.

Love your blog. Gonna be visiting more often!

That's awesome...I love having my kids be afraid of me! It just that after 15 years they are figuring out my secrets! Maybe you can share your stare so I can practice some new moves...k?

Hi! Got here via the blog trip.

I'm still working on the mommy stare...but I do have my mommy voice. The soft but firm sound that means business. LOL!

Have a nice day!

Just stopping by for the roadtrip, but I just read your Labor Day grill post and I have to say it brought a smile to my face. I'm an Army spouse as well and my hubby worked most of the weekend as

Thanks for checking out Make Me a Hot Mama. Initially, it was actually just a fashion and beauty mag for moms. I struggled a lot with my decision to narrow my focus to mostly pregnant or new mommies, but there are so many great moms out there with general fashion and beauty advice blogs, and virtually none for the expectant mama. I will still have topics and articles that every mom will appreciate (i.e. skincare questions, makeup tutorials, and a general fashion overview for each season), but I will be using maternity wear for the outfit stylings, and will be adding other baby-related topics.
