Who Is Yours Truly?
Hi! This page is about me…your host! My name is Lisa. I am definitely not a “girlie girl”…never have been. While I do enjoy getting dressed up sometimes, I absolutely love hanging out in a river for a day of fishing or just bumming around in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. I love to curl up with a good book (a.k.a. my Kindle) or just putting in my earbuds to listen to my iPod which, by the way, has quite the eclectic selection. Traveling, whether in hotels or camping, is a passion mine and luckily, my husband’s too. I love planning vacations…usually while we are on a vacation.
I am a stay at home mom with two children under the age of 6, Bryan and Emma. I LOVE being a mom more than ANYTHING! It’s absolutely the best “job” I’ve ever had. It’s hard to believe you actually fall more and more in love with those little critters every day. I also have a 23 year old daughter, Lindsay. Well, technically she is my step-daughter, but we have been together since she was 4, so she is mine too. Some say that my husband, Greg, and I “started over”.
Before becoming a stay at home mom, I waited tables, bartended, graduated from college with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, worked in my family’s award business, and helped my husband in his custom boat repair shop. Yup, you guessed it, we are all self employed!! Now that I am a stay at home mom, in 2010 I became an Independent Shaklee Distributor and in 2015, a Pampered Chef Independent Consultant…further securing our future in self-employment. There are ups and downs, but generally there are more ups. After all, we are in control of our dreams and making them come true.
I can’t help voicing my opinion and sharing ideas and information. I thought a multifunctional blog would be a great way to “get out there”! So, welcome to Mommy Notions…a place to gather and share! Here you will find an array of all different things…from random thoughts to craft ideas or recipes to health and wellness. There will be things to buy at times and freebies every once in a while too. You never can tell!! No matter the topic, your participation in this blog is very important. If you have a topic you want to talk about or something you want to share, but don’t have the time (or energy), let me know and I will do my best to help. Most of all, I value your comments.
While I definitely do not have TOO much time on my hands, I do look forward to sharing some “Mommy Notions” with you! With that said, posts may not be an every day thing. They may be as random as our thoughts sometimes. With a little free time here and there…during naps or at 3 a.m…I will do my best not to leave you hanging!
