About Me

Life Without Pink is a personal lifestyle blog focused on parenting and raising boys to give other parents inspiration. You’ll find everything from cool gadgets, daily adventures, to personal stories and tips for raising boys.

Hi, I’m Tina.

I have two very active boys {April 2006 & November 2008} and an extremely hardworking and supportive husband. We’ve been together for seventeen years and happily married for over ten!

me and hubby

After my second son was born, I was laid off from my Marketing Management position. I decided right then that I would take the time to build something from home so that I could be with my boys.

Four years later, I’ve finally made that a reality and I work full-time in social media right from my couch!

Motherhood is by farthest the hardest job I’ve ever had, but nothing on earth compares to how rewarding and whole it can make you feel. My blog has been such a blessing for me and has helped me realize the parenting struggles I sometimes face are completely normal.

The main purpose for starting my blog was to share my experiences raising boys and the challenges that sometimes go along with it. I want to give them a good foundation so they grow to be confident, strong, and respectful men. On my blog, I share my experiences and tips that have worked for me and hopefully will help other moms. 

Both of my sons have a ton of energy, so it’s important to keep them active and outdoors. I write about all of the ways I enjoy my family from camp outs to art projects to a backyard mini golf course.

Oh my goodness a life without pink, I can’t imagine it. I have 2 girls and 2 boys and I thought boys were the gross ones lol! Pink around here would be best described as green thick putrid green. Don’t get me wrong, I love those girls but I wonder if they are boys sent here to play a dirty trick (literally lol). I love your blog and I am following you on Twitter as well!

My oldest daughter would have to agree with you in the sense that she wouldn’t be able to do life without pink. For the longest time is was light blue EVERYTHING and then all of a sudden when she was like 17 she switched to all pink! Wish I were more girly girl!

Stopping in from UBP ’10 and Twitter.

Hi Tina,

I wanted to reach out and say hello. I’m Lauren’s cousin and we may have met once or twice in the past. You are an inspiration to me and now I am in the process of creating a blog on wordpress and have never been more excited. Lauren told me about your blog and I have been reading all of your advice and tips – thank you!

I will keep you posted when I am up and running as well. I may even try to go to one of the upcoming bloggy bootcamps.

You have put me on the right path as far as the blog I would like to create.

Thanks again. Speak to you soon.

Best,
Kristy

I once was a mom to 2 boys and longed for a girl and then we had 2 girls and wow are boys easier (at least it seems that way today!). I never thought I’d have a 1 1/2 yr old that said “no mommy, this shirt”.

What a great title! I’m also living “without pink”! :) I’m not that girly, but sometimes I just want to go and sit in a salon and get a pedi, mani, and new do, just so I can feel like a girl. It doesn’t help that I no longer wear “work clothes” or get dressed to do anything that requires more than jeans and t. Thanks for stopping by this morning! I’m a new follower.

I’m a mom of 2 little boys like you, but I still belong to the good, bad and ugly corporate world (I must be masochistic!). This is a really fun blog and I’ll have to stop by often! If you have a moment, stop by the personal blog I started recently at http://perfectingmotherhood.wordpress.com. It’s tough to be an imperfect mom like me!

Great blog Tina! I enjoyed reading about you and your boys. I’m a young stay-at-home wife after getting laid off 2 January’s ago. My blog is about my husband and I on our journey to create residual income with our home business and learn how to live and be healthier. Living in an area where everything is made full of fat, it’s quite a struggle. Feel free to stop by and check out our blog. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Hey you! I just sent you a tweet about Disqus. I was having all the same problems you are with approving comments but also with spam. If you don’t have this problem now, you will soon! I love Disqus in that a) it’s free! b) users have to sign in to post (guest is OK), and c) if they also have a Disqus account, they can edit their comments anytime after posting without bothering YOU. This works for me as a Disqus commenter as well because every once in awhile I leave a comment that has an obvious spelling error or something I didn’t mean to say. Instead of having it up there on awesome blogs (like yours) forever, I can change it myself quite easily.

Also as a Disqus commenter, I can keep track of every single comment I’ve ever made on a Disqus blog and get a good idea for how my comments look as a whole. There are other perks like being able to tweet your comment (as a commenter) or being able to manage all comments in one dashboard (as a moderator).

Anyway, hope this helps! I too have two small boys that drive me crazy and make me want to pull my hair out. Disqus hasn’t solved this yet but if I find anything that does, I will let you know!

Best,

Nanci Murdock

I was living in a life without pink. I have 3 boys and then a girl. I honestly never imagined having sons. I thought I would have only daughters. My first son was born in an Army Hospital and they did not tell the gender back then. I went through my entire pregnancy thinking I was carrying a Christianna only to deliver a Daniel.

For the second and third I knew they were boys from the ultrasounds. It gave me time to “grieve” the daughter I wasn’t having. The fourth time around, which for me was more about having an even number of children and avoiding the middle child syndrome than having a girl, I also found out at the ultrasound.

It is completely different. But then again each of my boys (now 16, 15 & 9) have been completely different.

I’m a new follower and enjoying your blog.

Hello,

Today marks the start of National Playground Safety Week. Sometimes the safety risks posed by
your local playground are not so obvious so Consumer Reports has compiled a list of safety tips from Safe Kids USA. Your readers would surely be interested to take a peek at these important safety measures before heading out to the local playground.

http://news.consumerreports.org/safety/2011/04/playground-safety-tips.html

Here is an excerpt:
“Remove children’s helmets, necklaces, purses or scarves before they run onto the playground. As a general rule, you should also remove hood and neck drawstrings from children’s clothes and outerwear. Regardless of where they play, this is an all around safety tip we stand behind.”

Hope you’ll find this piece useful and that you’ll share it with your readers.

Thanks!
Dana Arena (On behalf of Consumer Reports)

HI
I have just discovered you and think we may have a lot in common, although my two boys are a little bit older. There is no pink in my life…I will just have to wait for grandchildren.
I am now a follower and look forward to connecting with you.
