a lifestyle blog for the modern mom
I’ll admit. I have NEVER used yeast before. That tells you all the baking, or lack of, that I’ve done. I have some fall goals and making rolls, pizza dough, and bread are a few of them!!! I am excited!
Love that apron by the way.
Ya, I am learning everyday. Brinley is really good at keep me on my toes and helping me be more and more patient everyday. When Reagan gets to toddlerhood, you’ll learn to pick your battles, to really ignore a tantrum (still working on that), and how to stop fueling the “fire” aka the tantrum. But anyways, you know I love ya and you’re amazing!
Ok girl thank you for that sweet reminder. I am the same way that I have to clean the house before I can cook anything! It is hard to be a mom and figure out a good balance. Let me just say even though you were rockin’ the clip in your hair and maybe it wasn’t your first option you looked dang good doing it!
Holy cow, let’s just morph together and we’ll be the perfect wife/mom! I am the total opposite…I cook and THEN clean. And I’m much better at cooking than cleaning. I still haven’t figured out how to keep the windows and mirrors from getting streaks! So sad! And you are doing an AMAZING job, Sadie! You have SO many people looking to you as an example! AND, next matter of business…you MUST share your french bread recipe!!! I’ve always wanted to make my own french bread, but it seems so intimidating! ANNND, I totally would Skype with you…but I don’t have Skype…or know how to get it for that matter…
P.S. I’m totally digging your kitchen colors…GORGEOUS!
P.P.S. I’ll shut my yapper now.
oh man i wish i was a little more ocd about the cleaning!! can i have that part of you! or at least send some cleaning vibes my way. i send most of my time just playing. haha. i cook and bake but cleaning no way. you are wonder woman!
I absolutely love this post. It makes me so excited to be a wife and mom one day. You are an amazing inspiration!
Chris cooks…but this post got me wondering what he would do if he came home to dinner. I MAY just have to give it a whirl.
So fun! I have an aunt who never quite figured out how to stop cleaning and start living until very recently, but she’s still my favorite aunt and her kids are awesome, so don’t worry! you’ll be the best mom to your family! I just know it!
Wow, my husband wishes I were more that way, haha. I am lucky if I vacuum and sweep 2xs a week! I guess it’s just a trade-off. People’s priorities are different in life/marriage/parenting and that’s why it’s great that we’re not all the same.
I love to cook and bake and do it every day, but I don’t do everything from scratch! I still have those easy throw-together meals like everyone else, and they still taste just as great! Good for you for going the extra mile to make your hubby happy!!!
Oh Sadie… how I love you! You give me hope that I can be a good housewife someday & let go of my OCD-ness. You truly amaze me little lady!P.S.- you look fantastic too! I dub you “my hero”!
I love your blog! I am glad you posted this! I feel the same way about being a mom! You amaze me! You should post your recipes from this post!
You are so precious! I think both hubby and I are going to have the same problems when we have little ones…. we’re both pretty OCD about having to have everything *just so*.
Man, can you please give me some of your OCD? I want to be like that but i have the hardest time wanting to cook and clean! I hate cleaning, I am learning to cook which can be enjoyable but not so much the clean up after park! I’d much rather sit and play with my almost three year old and soon to be born little boy all day!any of your tips would be much appreciated:)
I am glad I am not the only one with OCD around here!! Maybe that’s why we are type A labor nurses!! Ha ha I sure love you and think your amazing, I just wish we still lived next door so we could cook together!! Maybe when my babe gets here we will have weekly cooking dates??
he he he. *I* have not gotten to that point yet. And my kids are 9.5 and almost 8!! I try..I do. But internally, my insides are screaming, “a mess!!! clean it up!” Of course, I do let it go. I let the dirty dishes from breakfast sit out so we can run off to the pool and I, instead, attack them at dinner, but yes, i think about that dirty kitchen and my piles of laundry all. day. long!
Though I am not a mom yet, I think I will also have a problem with wanting to spend too much time cleaning. I am totally a clean freak and I judge other moms that let their house get so messy. But they are probably busy doing things that are more meaninful than scrubbing the floor. Like you, I hope to find that balance between keeping my house clean but still being spontaneous and having fun.
