If you ventured to my neck of the blogasphere from the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party, Welcome.
My name is Amber. I’ve been blogging for about six months and am still learning the in’s and out’s of blogging, but it has became something that I love to do. I also love to see other people’s idea’s and learn new things from all the other wonderful bloggers out there. Thankfully my husband is learning to put up with my long hours surfing blogs and adding too his honey-to-do-list.
I am a social worker by day and a domesticated wife by night. I’ve been learning about domestication most of my life. I grew up around my grandmother who was always cooking, baking, crafting, thrifting, gardening or just about anything else. She was green before green became cool. Most of what I know, I learned from her and I am so grateful for those moments I got to spent with her and my grandfather. I became a homeowner at the young age of 22 and with the help of my wonderful husband of almost two years, we have been able to tackle the craziness that comes with home ownership. We have spent the last few years putting our own touches on our 1940’s house and just when we think we’re done, I come up with something else to do.
We are currently trying to conceive, but are having difficulty with infertility caused by Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. It has been a very stressful process but we are trying to stay optimistic. There is nothing more in this world that I would love to do than become a mother.
My blog is a little of this and a little of that. I love to decorate and craft. Sewing is something I recently got back into and now I can’t be unsupervised in JoAnn’s. Unfortunately for my husband the store is just up the street! I love to cook when I feel like it or have the time. And my new love is for all things coupons and free stuff! It’s my current mission to reduce our grocery bill in order to try to get out of debt and save more money. I get a rush when I get things for free and I love all the free samples that pile up in my mailbox.
I would love to win the Hilton Garden Inn prize or one of the amazing stamped necklaces that I have been drooling over lately.
Welcome to The Lester’s… Luv, Laughter & Happily Ever After. I hope that you will tag along for our journey and all that life has to throw at us. Don’t be shy either.
