A couple of months ago I thought about starting my own blog. At the time, I wasn’t sure I could do it and I wasn’t totally sure what I wanted to write about. Now that the New Year has arrived, I decided to take the plunge and go for it ! After all you can’t succeed at something if you never try, right ? After much thought and consideration, I was still undecided on a topic. Several nights ago as I was drifting off to sleep, I realized I don’t need something specific. Do I ? My blog is going to be about me and my lifestyle ! So here it goes . . My pitch as I call it . . A blog about a working mom with an adorable, yet sometimes crazy 2 year old, a wife to a (crazy about hunting) awesome husband, a full time occupational therapist, a scrapbook and planner extraordinare ( I’m using this term loosely), a cooking enthusiast, makeup lover and professional shopper (okay not professional but I’m trying to convince my husband). So here it is ! A blog about everyday life with an everyday girl and her family !
So first there’s me ! I’m a 28 (gosh, am I really 28 already) year old mom of a 2 year old little boy, Layton. I say mom first because that’s my main identity, most of what I do in all the other categories of my life all ties back to being a mom! It’s great, sometimes exhausting, but also the best thing ever ! Secondly, I’m a wife to a super handsome husband (I’m biased I’m sure) but that’s 10% why I married him. The other 85% is because he is hardworking, loving, and funny ! The last 5% is because he drives me crazy and what would a marriage be if the other person didn’t make you a little crazy sometimes. As I mentioned before he is hunting obsessed ! So stay tuned because I’m sure I’ll have some posts for all the other hunting wives out there ! I’m also an occupational therapist, most of you are probably thinking “what is that?” And to be honest most days I’m not even sure what it all means ! But for right now, I work with kids elementary through high school with disabilities on basic school skills to improve their participation in their environment. WOW ! That’s a lot ! I do this full time Monday thru Friday and absolutely love it. I made the job switch about 2 years ago and every day has been super rewarding ! Next on to my hobbies .
I don’t have many because I don’t have a ton of time to enjoy them but my most recent adventure is scrapbooking and planning. I started scrapbooking about 6 months ago when my mom introduced me to it. She has been doing it for years and is a crazy scrapbooking lady as I like to call her ! She has a whole room dedicated to it ! I’m not quite there yet but I’m working on it ! (I guess the “I get it from my momma” phrase is true). I also enjoy planning and started this about a year ago after watching some you tube videos ! I’m addicted ! It’s amazing how great it feels to be organized ! Another thing I enjoy is cooking (maybe I enjoy it just because I have to do it) but either way, I love trying new recipes and making old ones. For all the people that like simple, easy recipes . I’ll be posting lots along the way. My last obsession- and yes I’ll call it an obsession, is shopping and makeup. I love going shopping and like it even more when I can find good deals. I also enjoy shopping for makeup which again is crazy because I don’t even where makeup that often but I love the packaging and all the new products and it sucks me in! I’ll be sure to share my favorites and any good shopping deals with my readers.
