First Things First

First things first, I should introduce myself.  I am a wife and stay-at-home mom to three kids, 4-year-old twins (boy/girl) and a 2-year-old girl.  By training, I am an engineer.  I hold a bachelors degree in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech and a masters degree in Aeronautics from Caltech.

I was in the working world for almost ten years, starting in Los Angeles and eventually moving to North Carolina.  Soon after moving here, I found out I was expecting.  And soon after that, I found out I was expecting TWINS!  Now, that's a game changer.  Since then, we have added three wonderful kids to our family, and our lives have been forever changed.

While I transitioned from being a full-time working woman to a stay-at-home mom (and new homeowner!), I realized that I have a love for fixing and building things.  Whether it be a door jamb, washing machine, Halloween costume or something to do with our minivan (I used to be cool, I swear), I love to use tools and fix things.

I also love finding ways to save money for my family.  Our income cut in half when I stopped working.  We quickly found that we needed to find ways to live more economically.  Some ways that I save money are making my own laundry detergent, baking my own bread, cutting my husband's and kids' hair and using cloth diapers.

Along this journey, I thought, "Surely there are other moms out there like me.  I wonder how I could connect from them."  So I started this blog so that I can share some of what I have learned with you (and so that I can learn from you as well!).

Thanks for stopping by.  Now pick up your hard hats, ladies.  Let's get started.
