Wonderful Idea

When I was pregnant I seen an add for what they called "mom cards" I thought how silly. Well now I want some because I am so often trying to give out my contact info. out to other moms for play dates etc. and it's annoying trying to find a pen and paper while holding your baby. So I think I may invest in some of these cards.

Mind your Ps and Qs

Something I thought I was always good at was etiquette well until I became a mom then I began to question my manors because I was in so many new situations I wasn't sure how to react to certain things. Some things I have caught myself wondering whats the right thing to do here??? Well I want a book on it but have yet to find a good one. So far just using good ole' common sense but that only gets you so far!

Bucket List

Well I'm sure many of you have heard of a bucket list but for those of you who don't know already it's a list of things you want to do before you die. Well I've been thinking more and more about it since my daughters recent birth and my father and grandmothers recent death it gets you thinking about life and what you want to do with your own life. I have made some changes to mine thats for sure mostly added alot of things and I feel like I may actually follow thru with them too. I'm not going to share my entire list but here are a few things on my list:
1) Become friends with my daughter when she's old enough to handle mom as a friend and a mom (me and my mother have this relationship and I love it).
2) Attend grad school and finish it!
3) Write a book (psychology)
4) Scrapbook my daughters life and give her the book on her 18th birthday!
5) Go zip lining at least once
6) Go to lego land and disney land with my daughter
7) Take a vacation with the husband and daughter every year
8) Have mine and my husbands dream house built (we've been making a list of things we'd like pretty much since we've been together- a mental list)
9) Finish my family tree I've worked on for over a year now, it's coming along but I want to finish it and get a book printed up of it.
10) Go swimming at a waterfall with my husband
11) Learn a second language
12) Write a children's book and dedicate it to my daughter
Do you have a bucket list? What's on your list?

Just a little blog about homemaking...

Well I have more than one blog but this one I wanted to be just about homemaking! It's a wondeful job to have! I get to spend all day and night making my family happy! What more could a mom ask for? Although it is great and I love it, there is alot that comes along with it! Like sleepless night waking up with a baby and working 24/7 when do you get a break? you don't! ha ha! For some reason despite the lack of sleep and breaks I get thru and I love being a wife and mom that is there for every little thing my family needs me for! I love to do crafts and some of the blogging I will do will be on crafts I do for the home or for my little one! Hope you enjoy!
