The Mom Behind the Blog

Hey there! Nikki here. Welcome to what I call a little glimpse into the whirl wind that is my life. Being the mommy to a one year old, a mommy to be (again), a wife, sister, daughter, and step-mom who just quit her job rather suddenly, I can say with some certainty that there is never a dull moment in my life. Let me explain…

Since the moment I realized I was expecting my first child, I knew I wanted to be a WORK FROM HOME mom. I’m not really the domestic type so doing just mommy/wife duties wouldn’t satisfy me, yet it always drove me crazy working for someone else… thus my new adventure into budgeting, couponing, blogging, and ultimately living (not just surviving) on one traditional income.

So why am I here? To support, encourage, and empower other women who strive to be work from home/stay at home mommies. Our society, far too often, puts family priorities on the back burner. Not us! Not anymore! Throughout this blog you will fall into a bunch of information I’ve stumbled across and different things I now do and use to make this new life style work the way I want it to. From saving money to savings time to saving your sanity, it’s here.

I also, most importantly, want to invite you to visit often, share your experiences, and give us your 2-cents as often as you’d like. Interaction between you, me, and the other followers of this blog is so incredibly important because it helps build each other up, give us hope, and keeps us going. So, now that you know a little about me… tell me a little about you and your loved ones in the comments below.  I look forward to hearing the story that makes you … YOU.
