Cooking the first thing on the LIST.

I am so happy to finally have a computer. I Forgot how much i love the internet and blogging. I am so encouraged by all these sahm and sahw im excited to start my journey here online with everyone else around to support me. Being young married in its self is hard enough but wanting to master the divine calling of homemaker is whole nother ball game. Sometimes its ovewhelming thinking about all the things that go into it and all the things i want to learn and accomplish. Thankfully life is about learning and growing and it doesn't have to all be accomplished in one week. (phew!) I really want to master skills of homemaking before i have little ones running around because i know it only gets harder from there. So i guess you all can just sit back and watch me learn (or struggle for that matter) because this is the journey of a young wife working her way towards a family and home that honors God.

  • Mommy To be List
So let me tell you about my Mommy To be list. (No I am not pregnant) These all just things i would like to accomplish or improve before i start my journey of motherhood. Now, i am well aware that i will never be completely prepared or organized for that matter. But, i feel like girls/women don't seem to really start preparing themselves before children or marriage for that matter. Like myself i should have really worked on all these great things before i jumped into marriage full of endless laundry, dirty toilets, and uncooked meals. I figured whats the big deal i mean how hard could it be right?! (i give you permission to chuckle to here) So i really want you guys to journey with me as work throught this crazy, challenging, but rewarding path to becoming a better homemaker, wife, and God willing some day a mommy.

The first thing on my Mommy to be list to accomplish is

1. is cooking and i mean the delicious finger licking home cooking not my usual hamburger helper and french fry casserole.

So that means no more excuses no more i can't do it. It's time for me to get to that grocery store, get what i need, and get to work. I need to try atleast one new recipe in the next week and i need to be held a accountable so i will have to post on here how its going. So wish my luck and if you have any great tips for a new wife struggling in the kitchen i would really appreciate them. And i want to throw a challenge out there to all you wives try out a new recipe this week and let me know how it goes.

Thanks for journeying with me!
