Let’s Get This Party Started!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

I’m Amber and want to welcome you to Luv, Laughter & Happily Ever After! I like to call this my little corner of the web where I share my latest deals, DIY projects, recipes, struggles with infertility and life!

This is my third year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party {UBP}  hosted by 5MinutesForMom.com.

I started blogging over three years ago when I started learning more about couponing and began getting great bargains that I wanted to share with my friends and family. From there it evolved into sharing more than just deals, but our life and our struggles.


I’m an underpaid Martha Stewart with a taxi service by day {okay, so I’m a social worker} and a domesticated wife by night. I’ve been married to my jack-of-all-trades-husband for almost four years! This is double the trouble when we both have idea’s that we want to do around the house and have to come to a compromise!

I’ve called Ohio my home for the last ten years, when I up rooted myself from the cornfields of Iowa and started my new venture in Ohio when I moved here for college {wow, really can’t believe that was ten years ago!}.  One of these days we’re planning on moving to Myrtle Beach to get away from the cold winters!

We’ve spent the last three years battling infertility and PCOS. It’s been an emotional roller coaster ride. Eight rounds of infertility treatments later, we’re still struggling with this huge hole in our hearts that is empty, just waiting to be filled with a precious newborn. I keep trying to remember that his timing isn’t necessarily my timing.


I hope you will follow me through my cooking adventures…
