HAYLEY HENGST

Hayley is the founder of the blog Mother Freaking, a space originally intended to chronicle all of the humorous events that seemed to make up her life, mostly due to the four humorous males she lives with. Then some things happened (#separation #cancer #someothershiz), she realized life isn’t always so humorous, and the blog took a bit of a turn. She’s confident it will one day resume being funny, if for no other reason, because she will have been driven to insanity. Besides the obvious loves every Suburban Housewife shares (wine, coffee, naptime and Netflix), other things that make her happy include the smell of a new book, the chipped-tooth smile of her youngest son, a coffee mug with something witty written on it and twinkling lights.
