Summer Blog Challenge- Day 1

I literally came across this blog project/blog hop just this morning!  My first thought was how fun could this be??  

Day 1's topic is Why are you doing this challenge? I often blog about staying on a budget in the kitchen, recipes I have been inspired to try because of Pinterest, and my journey to and through motherhood.  I thought it would be refreshing to have some different topics to blog on, and to give my readers and followers a new perspective of me and what makes me... well, me! :)

I cannot guarantee that I will get my posts up every single day, but I will try! We are moving this weekend to a new home, and I am a stay-at-home mama to a 13 year old and a 4 month old. But I guess this is why they call it a challenge, right? ;)


  1. Wow, 13 years and 4 months. You've got your hands full but at least you've got a helper. =)

  2. I came across it the same way. Early this morning. Right on time!!! I can't wait to get to know other bloggers through reading these blogs. I really didn't know there would be so many. I'm getting more and more excited with every little entry that pops up on the facebook group :)
    Good luck on the moving! My biggest challenge (in the challenge) is going to be the summer's family reunion, which takes place at a lake, in tents. :p

  3. Good luck with your move and the rest of the challenge :)

  4. Awesome, I am a new follower and hope to read more and I love saving money to... Good luck with the MOVE!

  5. Congrats on being a SAHM - My journey with that is at a new chapter as my 2 guys are 2 years away from graduating and are now talking college and employment options. I don't think they will be leaving anytime soon, but it's a different chapter on Mummyhood! Welcome to the Summer Chalenge! Carmen

  6. Thank you everyone for the kind thoughts! :) The move went pretty well. Still unpacking, and trying to get settled, and get my garden going, and still trying to blog as well. Oh, and then there is that baby and my kiddo too. But I am loving every minute of it. ;)
