About Baxtron{Life}


Welcome & Thank You for Visiting

I'm Courtney.
I'm not a fashion blogger…
though sometimes I still like to play dress-up.
This blog is about 
everything I love:
& other 
This is my husband, Jerry.  
He's kind of a big deal.
 And this is our daughter, Zion.  
She has monopolized the real estate of my heart.
 We live in New York City.  
Where do you live?
It's totally crazy not always easy living in this city.
But, we're pretty settled…for now.
Thank you for visiting,
We're so happy you came by.

  4. Hi Courtney! Found you though Mom Central Station - so nice to meet you! Spent some time reading your lovely stories. I'm a NYC mom too :). And my husband's name is Jerry too :)

  5. Hi Courtney! So glad I found your blog! I'm pretty new to blogging, so I look forward to your Tools section. Check out my blog at drmomsie.com!

  6. I'm your newest follower from the Night Owl blog giveaway :)

    I can't wait to read more from you.

  7. Stumbled upon your blog and am LOVING your space! Your family is absolutely precious. I started blogging after finding out I was pregnant with my first son, Gage, back in May of 2011. I am now just trying to capture all of the craziness that first time mommy-hood has to offer!

  8. Hey Courtney. I'm in love with your blog. You write from such a true, genuine place not to mention you have great posts. For this I am nominating you for "The Versatile Blogger". Please stop by my blog to check out the award. I look forward to following you in the future.

  9. You have such a cute blog & adorable daughter!! I agree that it is difficult living in NYC sometimes [like yesterday when I practically got assaulted by a homeless many on the subway & today when it is supposed to rain all day & I need groceries but no longer own a car]. I'm not sure I agree with your cost of living/income chart though, lol! The cost of living in Arizona is cheap...and I lived in Virginia before & it's just as expensive as NYC!! I guess if you're in south Virginia it's a different story though...

    Nice to meet you!!

  10. So cool meeting you IRL and looking forward to connecting at our first BlogHer conference! You have a beautiful family =)

  11. Love your blog! I would like to visit New York again. Sounds fun :)

  12. I'm so excited to meet you and explore your city! :) So I should be doing other things for BlogHer but here I am! :) Loving your blog. Zion is adorable.

  13. New to your blog, love what i've read so far! Just followed via Bloglovin' & Hellocotton. Happy September!

  14. :sigh: where do I begin. I was about to send an email to Quiana and be like "um do you know a cute girl who blogs who's from seattle but lives uptown who has a mixed daughter?" cuz honestly, that's how I remembered you and for the life of me I couldn't remember your name or your blog name. (sorry) THANK YOU SO MUCH for your comment so I can stalk you properly here instead of having to let Quiana in on my crazy.
    Anyway...I wanted to let you know you may want to try Lia Naturals line on your daughter's hair. That has been in my head to tell you since January 15th. ::sigh::

  15. hi, I think i found you through the prayer warrior button - I like your blog and Zion is beautiful! I enjoyed time spent in New york city when I lived in Boston but I am now in Oklahoma and the cost of living is bananas compared to New York! have a good one!


  16. Hi there! I had a question for you and was wondering if you could email me back to discuss?

    Thanks and have a great day!
