I am a mother of 2 wonderful children and 1 wonderful husband. Landon my oldest was born in August of 2009, and Riley was born September of 2011. Brad and I have been married since 2004. If you would have asked me 5 years ago (heck, even 1 year ago) if we would be where we are now I would have never guessed. I kind of take that as a lesson to stop guessing in life, and though I am a crazy and obsessive at planning, I am realizing that the best way to go about life is to go with the flow. Every plan I make never works out the way I have planned anyway – not to say that the outcome isn’t as good if not better than I had originally hoped.

In May of 2012 I was able to leave my other job as a kindergarten teacher and be a stay at home mom full time. I want this blog to become a journal of sorts, for my everyday life events and thoughts on motherhood, parenting, and life in general. I am so excited for this new chapter of my life and can’t wait to see where I end up 5 years from now.

    Just discovered your blog through Pintrest and the ever popular crock pot series-but in glancing through it, i’m excited to look at some of your “thematic units”. My little Buddy (nearly 4 yrs) have been doing some homeschooling type things while his sister naps on the days he doesn’t have school. Looks like you have some great ideas for our time together!

    Wow, I just found your site on Pinterest while looking for freezer crock pot meals. I love it! I am going to try your plan (though likely not for 39 days) this weekend and see how it goes. I plan to write about it on my site 😉 I am also digging your Monster thematic unit!!

    Take care 🙂

      Thanks! I’m excited to see how it goes for you! Hopefully you find it a great time saver! I too loved those monster activities. Landon had a mini obsession with monsters at the time so they were extra fun to do!

    Thanks for sharing! Another great thing to do is get your sale turkey at Thanksgiving. $0.39 right now at my supermarket. And my family’s favorite, Christmas and Easter honey sliced hams, about the same price per pound for the holidays. My tradition, which feeds us for a week, is a big ole ham (and sides) and then save the ham bone and make lentil soup. Which is spices, 16 oz lentils, and a bunch of veggies (onions, celery, carrots, diced tomatoes). My son just loves lentil soup and it’s a one pot dish, so I love it too! Sometimes I get some nice bread to go with it.
