All About Us

Hi there!

Welcome to my humble little blog!

I am a 40's something mama of two wonderful children here on earth. Of course, I would say that, since I am their mama. They are not really children anymore, but more like young adults.

I have a son, Michael and a daughter, Therese. Our house was once filled with dolls and toy guns, but now is filled with hair accessories, nail polish, outdoor gear and video games. Gone are the days of pigtails and imaginary friends! Time has flown bye much faster than I had thought it would. I miss my sweet little ones, but am thrilled to see the amazing young adults they are becoming.

I am also a pet mom to an adorable black lab, 3 mischievous and demanding cats, 8 hens, and 1 rooster who loves to wake everyone up. Michael has a beta fish named Captain, while Therese has a guinea pig names Mister Snickers (it's really a girl).

I am a cradle Roman Catholic. Yes, I attended Catholic school, heck I even attended an all women's Catholic college. Passing on my faith to my children is important to me.

Before kids, I worked with clothes. I even designed and created a few wedding gowns! I was once a NYC diva, but now I am a country girl all the way!

What do I do now?
I am homemaker...a domestic engineer.

What does that mean?
It means I do everything.I cook, clean, laundry, drive people here and there, and raise my little heathens...oh I mean saints!
On top of all that, I homeschool my two kiddos. I guess you can say I am a glutton for punishment.
I really do enjoy staying home with the kiddos and I love schooling them too. Of course like most homeschooling families, there are days I wonder what I was thinking.
I am trying to raise my children in our faith as best as I can. Some days I feel like I am failing! Other days, I feel like I have it all figured out, but then reality sets in.

We spend our days homeschooling, exploring the nature God has given us and trying to make sense out of this crazy world we live in.
We love learning through everyday lessons.  I am just a regular mom trying to figure life out while growing stronger in my faith.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Monique-
    I finished and pub the post on the HS Liebster award....Thank you again so very much!!

    I hope it's okay that I kind of "recycled" some of the answers from last time....I'm feeling so overwhelmed with housekeeping stuff and Hsing plus the kids; being ill off and on over the past week that I kinda had to. BUT I did want to accept the award and nominate others even though meeting all of the reqs would have taken me so long otherwise....

    Thanks Monique...
    Love your Pretty H, F, R also...Beautiful pics!
