Bloghop 2010

Hello fellow bloggers--welcome to Alicia's Homemaking!

(I am interrupting my scheduled posting to introduce myself at Bloghop 2010. If you are a regular reader, feel free to scroll down for Try New Adventures Thursday!).

I'm Alicia, and I have been at this blogging thing since October 2009. I am a wife to the sweet, handsome, and all-around amazing Andrew and mother to one Squishy little boy (8 months old). I left my job as an ICU nurse in April of this year to become a full-time stay-at-home-mom, and I could not be happier with my new job description. Full-time kisser of chubby baby cheeks? I'm so there (even if it does come with sleepless nights!).

 On Alicia's Homemaking you can join me as I learn how to efficiently (and peacefully!) run a home. There's lots of menu-planning, cooking, and housework involved, but it's all for love's sake. Not to mention the cooking part is just fun (although there's always potential for wreaking havoc in the kitchen)!

In my desire to stretch and grow, on I recently started hosting Try New Adventures Thursday (why, that's today!). I would be honored if you joined us in seeking out new learning experiences and sharing your big and little adventures in life.

I also feature The Less Project, chronicling my journey of living with less space, money, and time together as a family while my husband goes to grad school to become a Physician's Assistant.

I'd love to get to know you in this process! Leave me a comment and I'll stop by your place. You can also follow me on Twitter.

  3. I love your current job description! My "chubby baby cheeks" are all growing up - now I'm the "constant worrier as my son drives solo and my daughter asks about make-up". Enjoy these days - they just fly by!
