Hi there! My name is Stephanie and I am unorganized, totally spontaneous, fun, lovable, did I mention unorganized? stay at home mom to three wonderful, beautiful, brilliant (OK OK I know, enough already!! but it’s true! Just ask their Grandma, she’ll tell you!) children, 3 crazy dogs, and an out of this world husband! Together we function beautifully in our unorganized chaotic household!
Many of my posts are about food. Why? Because since being a stay at home mom I have a new found love for cooking. I like to try out new recipes but tend to forget them a week later. So in hopes to remember what the heck I made last week I’ll be posting it here! Please feel free to give suggestions, tips, or even ideas of things you’d like to try! Unless otherwise stated the recipes are created by me.
Before my whole love of cooking happened, I was an avid crafter and DIYer. So there will be a lot of creative posts as well!
In my past life I was a Recreational Therapist. It was my dream job! College courses were the best and working in the field was the greatest reward ever, until…my sweet babies were born. Now I seem to have that classic mom syndrome (or maybe that doesn’t even exist…maybe it’s just me, so we’ll call it Early Onset Alzheimers!!!…I swear I got it by osmosis from my working years with patients!!) where I don’t remember a thing about what I used to do. It’s tough enough making it through the day making sure everyone is fed, bathed, clean, and gone to gymnastics class! 🙂
We have been transferred for my husband’s job several times now. In 5.5 years we have bought 3 houses in 3 different states. We filled those houses with our own DIY projects and sold them on the first & 8th showings!! Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
This blog is here to help me keep track of my life! and hopefully add a little spice to yours!
I’d love for you to FOLLOW ME!!
