The House Wife Rookie

Thank you for visiting my Blog! I have always said that I would NEVER start a blog because I thought no one in their right mind would want to read anything that I would have to say (no offense to those of you actually reading! I am grateful that you are here) and I wasn't sure what I could possibly have to talk about! Nevertheless, I was inspired by a girlfriend at work when she started up her blog, (thanks Lisa!) and thought "What the heck, I'll give it a shot!" If anything, it will be nice to have something to look back on!

I have been married for 3 years now, and have been working as a substitute teacher for the last 5 years, and in 5 days I will officially be a full-time house wife! And even though I have been a wife for a few years, it turns out that I'm not so great at it! If you know me at all you know that I have no idea how much our mortgage is, what we pay in utilities, I haven't seen a paycheck in 3 years, and I've been told what I'm allowed to spend on groceries , but rarely abide by that. I'm not the best at cleaning (at least compared to my anal-retentive husband), and I RARELY cook dinner. With all that being said, I'm committing myself to becoming a better homemaker,and home economist and will become more proactive in our finances in hopes of giving some relief to my husband, who tells people that he is expecting his second child in July (because I am his first).

So,no, you will not find a "coupon mom" here, or some domestic goddess who knows all the things that a seasoned house wife should know, but rather, a "late-bloomer" learning how to be a little more than a House Wife Rookie. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love it!! I am so excited we are trying this thing together!

  2. You're off to a good start! This will really be exciting as we near the birth of CJ and are possibly spread to the far winds next year.

  3. So cute, Ashley. I love it.
