About Me

I'm a happily married stay-at-home mom of two beautiful lil girls (Addie & Nora), living in the far north Chicago suburbs.  I also work full-time from home as an Administrative Assistant to the Senior Vice President of Sales for a medical supply distributor in the long term care industry.  To say I'm a little frazzled, or scatterbrained at times, would be an understatement.  Coffee helps though!

With the exception of cleaning, I'm pretty good at (and enjoy) most domestic talents (cooking/baking, sewing, crafts, running a household, etc).  I have recently started up an Etsy business (Apples and Nanas Boutique) with my mom, selling homemade baby burp cloths, bibs and blankies (and my mom does embroidered bibs and clothing).  I have always had a love of writing, so I try to keep up with this blog (poorly so far, but I'm trying to be better) and I contribute at Little Lake County (a local area blog for Moms). 

With the addition of my second child, I started on a mission to live a more "natural" and frugal lifestyle (trying to afford said child and any future additions, but also concerned with the health of my children and the future of the planet).  I hope to expand on some of the ways that I've become more "green" in this blog, in the hope to possibly educate others who might be interested in doing the same. 

I am a breast-feeding, cloth-diapering, co-sleeping, babywearing, and most recently, organic using mama!!
