Well…we’re not entirely sure just yet. For now, this can’t-seem-to-sit-still mom is stumbling through motherhood one laugh, one cry and one awkward moment at a time. A lover of writing, cable news, online shopping, a good pest control company and gel manicures, Lexi runs the show at Charlotte Moms.

IMG_0105Shannon is the original founder of Charlotte Moms and today serves as a lead contributor.  She lives in south Charlotte with her husband and their circus: a 4 1/2 year old boy, a 3 year old boy, a 16 month old girl, and baby # 4 due this summer (yes, 4 in 5 years!) When she’s not up to her elbows in cloth diapers, playing with cars and trains, or chasing after a runaway baby, she loves cheering for the Hokies, enjoying the outdoors, attempting to be crafty, sneaking away for a girls’ night out, and getting lost in a good book.

staceybargar-headshotStacey is a full-time working mom with a belief that you can do it all by staying organized and keeping positive! During the day she works on search engine marketing campaigns for National and International brands. In her time off, she’s riding carousels, repairing tiaras and elbow deep in baked goods with her toddler. After graduating from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida, she married her college sweetheart and the economic depression forced them to move to the burbs of Boston! Though she will always have a special place in her heart for the people, seasons and food of New England, she has been lucky enough to call North Carolina her home for just under four years. New to the Charlotte-area, she is eager to explore and plant some Southern roots! Click here to read Stacey’s posts.
