Ultimate Blog Party Introduction

If you're visiting from the Ulitmate Blog Party, hello and welcome! This feels a little like a blind date, but I'm excited to meet you. My name is Meghan and I write about coming to grips with my life as a stay-at-home wife.

I had planned to go back to work after finishing graduate school, but between the recession and family obligations that hasn't happened yet. I spend my days debating whether or not I'm ready to have a baby and trying to make our life simple, efficient, frugal, green and fun.

If this is your first time visiting, here are some of the most popular posts I've written.

Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Failing My First Pregnancy Test (This is a recurring theme.)

Inexpensive Custom Drawer Organizers



Keeping My Maiden Name (This was very controversial.)

Skinny Jeans (This was also surprisingly controversial.)

Please leave me a comment (all the cool kids are doing it) so I can get to know you a little better too. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Meghan! (Love the way your name is spelled, by the way; my cousin spells hers like that and I've always liked it!) I kept my maiden name as my middle name after marriage (dropping my given middle name), and some people seriously can't understand why I did that. As in, they'll ask me multiple questions about it. I think we all have better things to worry about, right?! lol

    I'm here from 5MM - it was nice to meet you! Have a great week! :)

  5. Hi! From UBP. You sound like me with not going back to work after your grad. degree. I am in the same boat. Mine was b/c I had child #3 though and now with the recession and my husband's job, it has been hard getting back into work other than the blog.

I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
