Bad Blogger (and a late announcement!)

It is incredibly safe to say that I have been a VERY bad blogger!  Sorry about that.  I hope to use this space to write new posts and share a lot of the recipes and projects that I’ve been slacking on.  I really miss having a way to catalog the cool things that I create (food and crafts) and other nice life stuff!

Many of you who follow me on my personal Facebook page know that we are expecting our first baby: a son!  We can’t be more thrilled and I have been feeling really, really good. Baby Boy is set to arrive in September!

HappyWifey.net Baby!

My darling guy has been working diligently on converting our guest bedroom into a nursery which included making the closet bigger, repairing at least 2 walls of drywall, and installing two new windows.  Up next, he is going to put up the new drywall, tape, spackle, sand, paint, and install some lovely closet stuff for us.  I look forward to sharing project photos here!

I have a few food posts that I should be able to have up here soon, but not too many!  Sometimes, housework tackles me and I forget all about how I love to take photos of what we make.  I want to be able to post during maternity leave (which should begin in September, if this babe cooperates) with food ideas, my experiences, and so much more <3  I’ve been loving finding all sorts of parenting information on Pinterest (but taking EVERYTHING with a grain of salt of course!) and would love to help contribute there.

Gratitude and Grace

Hi friends!  I have renewed HappyWifey.net for the next year… I know I don’t post ALL the time, but I am anxious to make some new recipes and share them with you sometime in the future.

I recently started a hand-written gratitude journal… which just details my happy gratitude thoughts every few days.  Just like this blog, I will not task myself with writing in it every day.  I think it is the best practice to continue to be grateful for all that we have.  This weekend, I am especially grateful for great neighbors, wonderful family times, and the ability to provide and share good food and experiences with the people that I love.

I will continue to give myself grace in life and on this blog.  I WANT to post every week, but realize that I can still keep the things I love, even when I fall short.

I have been having a wonderful time working my Thirty-One business… I will be attending our conference this month!  I can’t believe the folks I have met and connected with because of 31.  I feel incredibly fortunate <3

Thanks for stoppin’ by!

Cinnamon Rolls

Greetings!  I know, I have been away for quite some time.  The hustle and bustle of the season, along with me still trying to figure out how to juggle my full-time and consultant work, has left me with not much time to update my blog.  But, rather than apologize some more, here is a snap of the most delicious cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted…

Of course, they are Pioneer Woman’s famous Cinnamon Rolls.  I have been wanting to make them for YEARS and I finally did it!! Here is the handy link: Cinnamon Rolls

kittiesThis upcoming year, I will be back soon with delicious recipes and interesting things.  I love being able to share a little slice of my life with those of you who have taken the time to stop by.  Happy New Year, and I hope that your holidays were merry and bright!
