Are you domestically challenged or know someone who is? Does reading about other mom’s blunders in the home make you feel a teensy bit better about your own downfalls in the domestic realm? If so, look no further. I am your gal.

I’m Stephanie and I recently quit my job after working mostly full time for the past 17

years. I graduated college in 2007 with my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish after nine long years of changing my major six times. Yep, I was that girl. I want to be a doctor, no, a PE teacher, no wait, a businesswoman…no, wait, maybe a photographer?? Nah…Spanish teacher it is! You may wonder how I ended up choosing Spanish as a major, or maybe you don’t, but I’m going to tell you anyway! πŸ™‚ My parents were missionaries in Brazil for 15 years. We went down when I was one year old and left in my 16th year. I grew up speaking Portuguese (still speak it fluently) which is a first cousin, linguistically speaking, of Spanish. When I had finally reached my wits end on what to get my degree in, my very wise college adviser told me to major in Spanish and become a Spanish teacher. So I did it.

I taught high school Spanish for 4 years until I could not handle the behavior issues I was faced with on a daily basis, leaving the year I had my second child. After that, I ended up at a small, private school, teaching Spanish and eventually music as well, to preschool through 8th grade. I did that for 4 years until I had my third daughter (notice a trend here??) and then left the teaching field all together so I could reserve all my daily patience for my own children. Anyone feel me on that one?? I then had a short stint back in the pharmacy tech world for about 10 months, eventually quitting when my husband was making well over enough to support us and me to be able to stay home with the kids.

So here I am! A christian stay-at-home-mom of three girls (almost 7, 5 and 20 months) who struggles to keep a small, 1100 sq ft. town-home clean, is embarking on the home-school journey, is working on losing ALL the baby weight (and then some) using Trim Healthy Mama, LOVES coffee, and dabbles in natural remedies and essential oils.

If all this sounds like stuff you would like to read about, then you are in the right place. I would love for you to poke around on my blog and read some of my older posts as well as follow me so you can get my newer posts. I promise to make you feel better about any of your domestic shortcomings by modeling how it’s NOT done. *insert snicker*
