My name is Crystal Escobar. I'm a wife of 12 years, mother of 4, Lily (10),  Oliver (7), Brooklyn (4), and Owen (2).

I come from a large family having 8 siblings. Growing up I moved ALOT, in fact I lost count after the 25th time. I lived in 5 different states and one other country, but Utah would be the place I call home. 

After graduating from high school, I moved to Arizona for a year and attended Scottsdale Community College.  Soon after, decided I wanted to serve an LDS mission. Before I left, I trained and ran a marathon – I’m, pretty proud of that! It was the first and definitely the last!

I served my mission for 18 months in Germany and I absolutely loved it. I saw some incredible things, met some amazing people and learned a few life altering lessons.

Five months after I got home, I met my husband Sean. We dated for 2 weeks and were engaged for 3 months before we tied the knot. Best decision I ever made!

My husband and I are successful network marketers, in fact we made our first million at age 27.  We love to offer training and support to help others achieve the same success we have. To learn more about our success story check out 

I started this blog in November 09 to log my personal progression in finding balance and purpose as a mom. 

I'm really just a Wannabe... a Wanna Be Balanced Mom.
I'm very passionate about having BALANCE -- the unattainable goal.  

 I like to cover a wide range of topics: health, weight loss, spiritual and personal development, making healthy meals, life as a momprenuer, and of course how I TRY to balance it all. 

Here is a post I did when I found myself completely OFF balance.

Come find me on Instagram @CrystalEscobar2 
& Periscope @CrystalEscobar 

Topics I write about include:

-Goals, and "TO DO" lists-- developing talents, finding your passions, and creativity.

-Finding a balance -- making time for the things you want to do, as well as what's most important.

-Staying organized -- the importance of having order in the home, tips on how to organize.

-Beauty Tips --even though we're moms, we can make time to be beautiful.

-Meals -- making healthy meals, on limited time and energy.

-Marriage --making it #1 priority.

-Weight loss --losing the baby weight, and keeping it off.

-Business Women --success IS possible.

-Money --budgeting and saving tips.

-Trials --overcoming them.

-Service -- ways to serve, forgetting yourself, and finding fulfillment.

-Fashion --I like to post pictures of the new clothes I get and where.

Thank you all for reading.

This is a gorgeous site and useful tips too. I'm the kind of person who always has a carefully thought out to-do list and loses it under the pile of things I have to do : )
