Ultimate Blog Party!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Thanks for stopping by from the Ultimate Blog Party.

I had so much fun participating in the Ultimate Blog Party last year, that I couldn’t wait for it again this year!  Thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom.com for hosting this fabulous party again!

If you’re new here, I’m Amber and I’m a twenty-something, domesticated wife of a jack of all trades. Those two together aren’t always a good thing either, ha. I am always coming up with projects for the hubby {an yes I refer to him frequently as the hubby}. I’m originally from the great corn state of Iowa, but moved to Ohio for college and kinda just stayed around the area. We’ve been married for 3 years in June and have two dogs, Jake & Daisy. We’re working on the 3 year plan{or less} to move to Myrtle Beach to be near the hubby’s parents.

We are currently trying to conceive {TTC}. It’s been a long, emotion filled, up hill battle. PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome has became one big pain in my booty. This whole process has just made us stronger and more appreciative for the day we do have a family. You can always read about our journey by clicking on the Our Journey link at the top of the page. Most recently we have met with an infertility specialist and have tried a new fertility medication.

I love to do anything crafty. Like I said, I’m very domesticated. My friends have called me a Betty Crocker meets Martha Stewart.

Like make over thrift store finds…


Find a new purpose for an old clock…


Create cute gifts


Picking up old hobbies… Like sewing…


And Scrapbooking…

Lyric Scrapbook

I also like to cook…


And Bake.


To my friends and family, I’m the coupon queen. I love scoring great deals and getting freebies.

Then there’s my Etsy shop that I am slowly trying to build up.



I host a weekly meal plan link up party called, Around the Table Menu Planning. The party starts on Fridays. I hope that you’ll join in on the fun and gathering new idea’s for your weekly menu’s.

Around The Table

I also have been doing a series, Deal Seeking 101. I haven’t done a post recently, but plan to start this up again soon, so keep an eye out for new posts in this series.

Deal Seeking

If you’ve made it this far, I hope that you’ll stick around a little bit longer and become a follower so you can stay up to date with whatever life throws at me, here at Luv, Laughter & Happily Ever After.  I promise you won’t be disappointed. You can also click on the cute little icons on the right hand side to follow me on Facebook & Twitter.

Thanks again for stopping by my corner of the blogosphere.

    I was lucky I had my daughter young before hormone problems made it hard to carry to full term. Gave up after a few miscarriages. So my husband and I have 2 his 1 hers but non together. I differ to God and his infinite wisdom, and carry on.

    Thanks for leaving us a comment and for being a avid blog follower :) I have PCOS too & it is difficult to deal with, so I feel for you. I'm fortunate enough to have 3 children, even with years of infertility before and in between each of them. BTW, love your blog and I'm your newest follower.

    Hi Amber! Thanks for stopping by my blog with the UBP :) I'm now following you on GFC.

    I love crafty blogs…they are so inspiring. I love all your photos. And I only quickly browsed some of your recipes, but yummmm! I'll be back for some of those! I also host a Blog Meme called Around My Table, but it has a different theme than Menu Planning. I thought it was funny that our names were so similar. Great minds think alike!
