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.
