Embracing Homemaking

Embracing Homemaking- Learning that I need to know the art of homemaking.
I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a homemaker.
I know so many people, especially in today’s time, get all weird if they are called a homemaker. Instantly the idea of Mrs. Cleaver in her pearls, high heels, and perfect roast comes to mind. That is NOT what I’m talking about here. Well, it is, but in a more realistic manner. My house is not always spotless, supper is not always not burnt, and my outfit is hardly ever more than some yoga pants and a stained tee shirt. But I’m still a homemaker.

A Simple Tip For A Less Stressed Motherhood

A Simple Tip for A Less Stressed Motherhood

Motherhood is by far the most rewarding job I have ever had. I don't get paid in money that I'll just spend on something, I get something much more than that. I get lasting memories and heart flutters. I get paid in love. Sometimes that love is showed by presents from my children, sometimes it is just in the simple hugs or slobbery kisses of my two year old. Either way, what I get paid for is so much more than anything else I could ever ask for.

Free Halloween Printables

It's finally the month of October!  I've been waiting all year for October, it truly is my favorite month. I love the long sleeves, the jackets, the coffee, and especially Halloween! There is something about fall that just makes my spirit dance! Seriously, I can't talk enough about how much I love Fall! Plus, living in Arkansas getting to see the changing of the tree leaves is a great sight too!

Natural DIY Home Cleaners

Remember in Monday’s post when I said that at one time I believed I was going to be an accountant? Well, while that may not have been my chosen career after all the idea of money thriftiness still remained. I am thrifty. There I said it. I love shopping at thrift shops, online swaps, and yard sales. I am the person who gets excited at Kroger because I am using coupons I’ve spent time clipping. That’s me.  So when I finally realized how much money I was spending on cleaning supplies, I knew something had to stop. Not to mention, around this time was also the birth of Monkey and I started getting very concerned about the amounts and types of chemicals that were going into his our systems.

I started exploring the ideas of homemade all natural cleaning supplies.  Now I know I know, bleach is pretty awesome. You can pretty much clean anything with it, but I always worried about my baby getting into it.  That I didn’t like. I wanted something even more natural. So here we are with some of my favorite DIY Home Cleaners.

You Are Never Too Old To Chase Your Dreams

dreams are worth it mom college wife dreams are real
When I was 16 years old, I was able to intern at a local college. It was an internship through my high school, and it was one of the best things that could have happened to me. It all started when I applied for the program so I could try to intern at an accounting firm, which is where I thought I would work one day as an accountant, but because I had no work experience they passed me up. Thankfully my teacher at the time lined me up another interview with the staff at our local college.  I was selected, and I started in July of my junior year. I worked at this college through high school and then completed my Associates Degree also while working there. In total, I worked there for four and a half years. For a first job, that is a pretty lengthy amount of job. 
I am so thankful for that experience as it completely changed my life in more ways than one. I met my best friend who led me to my husband and the life experiences I learned there can’t be replaced.
