Hi, I’m Jenna 🙂
Mom of three – two boys/1 girl Millennial Mom Spokesperson/Blogger/Teacher
Like most moms, I wear many hats. My full time gig is working as an Elementary Computer teacher, where I am fortunate enough to bring my kids to school with me every day as a teacher mom. When I am not playing chauffeur to my three children, ages 12, 9, 7. I also enjoy working out at the YMCA, watching reality tv, and hanging out with my girlfriends. I love to chat about fun things to do with your family, favorite products, travel tips and of course, frugal ways to have fun as a family.
I am very active in the community and actually started a committee to bring a holiday event to our town called Home for the Holidays, which promotes local shopping for the holidays, fun activities for the kids and a tree lightening ceremony. As a board member at the local YMCA, it’s my responsibility to help with the youth programs and promoting physical activities to keep our kids healthy and happy. Being a huge tech geek, I work a lot of STEM/STEAM camps during the summer in order to teach kids the benefits of technology and brighten their futures. I also work with the borough to incorporate fun activities for the kids through the local park recreation camps. I also coach all of my children for their basketball teams during the winter and love every minute of it.
About My Blogging
I started blogging at Bucktown Bargains while on maternity leave from 2011-2014.

Eventful Moms a way for me to share some of our experiences, favorite products, family travels and just trying to make motherhood eventful and creating awesome memories.

ABOUT THE FAMILY
I live with my husband, Bob, and three children in Dunmore, Pennsylvania -right outside of Scranton. We have been happliy married for 11 years now (got married on New Years’s Eve!), Bob owns a landscaping company Lawn and Order and is always on the go. He is the creative genius behind most of the landscaping in our area! Our two boys are now helping dad and learning a little about hard work and financial responsibility 🙂
Lucas, at the ripe of age of 10 loves to create youtube videos and build Lego sets. He is active in the theater and can play his heart out on the piano. Check him out on youtube at TheLucasUrban. Mollie is the queen of the house. She is 7 going on 20 and can run the show – and a classroom. With dreams of being a teacher, Mollie enjoys playing school, Barbies, house with her dolls, taking dance, theater and playing piano. Mollie was just under two when her brother came along and was helping mom change diapers. Jaxon is the baby, now 5 years old. You know when they say that the third child puts you over, I think they were talking to me. Jack Jack is always on the go and taking chances. The typical third child, Jaxon is always chasing his big brother and big sister but can totally hold his own. Just like his big brother, Jaxon loves to build Lego sets, play with Pokemon cards and all sports.
