My name is Staci, and I am 27 years old. I married a man more perfect than the “man of my dreams” on October 24, 2008. That same day, I also welcomed a stepson into my family. On November 28, 2009 I gave birth to the most perfect little boy. I have been blessed to be able to stay at home with him. My husband is currently working in Iraq. He has been working there since November 2008. We get to see him a few times a year. We miss him very much. We just bought our first home this month. We are moving in one week, and I can’t wait! We are hoping and planning that by the end of the year my husband will be able to quit his job in Iraq and come home for good. This will be a huge transition for us. I am going to learn how to be a different kind of person/wife/mom to hopefully make the transition easier for us. By different I mean more frugal, more Suzy-homemaker I guess. I want to use this blog kind of as a note-taking medium for myself. Sometimes I start researching so many things at once and get all of these ideas. I can’t possibly incorporate/try them out all at once, so I need a place to organize them to get to later. This blog will be filled with ideas, recipes, who knows what! If I end up with any readers out there, I would love to hear your input on anything and everything!
I am currently packing up our apartment for the big move into our new house. Tomorrow I have to go to the house to get another estimate on the flooring as well as hopefully finish cleaning it. We are moving in next Saturday! I’m already stressed!
