ARE YOU IN THE RIGHT PLACE?

Do you have a perfect life, perfect family, and perfect body? Do you have a Pinterest worthy home? Do you succeed at everything you attempt? Then I don’t have much to offer you.

(And please tell me how you do it!)

This is a community for imperfect moms facing daily challenges. Sometimes we reach excellence, sometimes we fail miserably, but yet we keep on trying!  My goal is to create a judgement-free zone where we can share our struggles and achievements. Life between the dishes is the everyday events that take place between filling and emptying the sink.  So, pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee, and join me as we learn from each other!

ABOUT ME

Hi Friends! I’m Misty: wife, mom, teacher, home-cooker, crafter, and sale-shopper.  I enjoy spending time with my family, pretending to be a gardener, and doing puzzles.  My list of things I enjoy could go on and on, but I’ll tell you about those later.  I am living with a chronic illness that forces me to see my choices through a different lens. I enjoy trying new things and have learned through the years to be able to accept failures with GRACE instead of automatically assuming that all is DOOMED. I hate celery and paying full price for anything!  I promise not to judge you and I kindly ask that you do the same for me. My goal is for us to support each as we share inspiration, tips, and resources to maintain our sanity through it all!

I love to cook and eat, but I don’t do fancy! Here you will find family and budget friendly recipes (like Mama used to make), tips and tricks (like how to cook the perfect grilled cheese sandwich), and more news from the kitchen. Coming Soon: your Must-Have Kitchen Tools Wish List!

I am an imperfect Mama and Wife, trying to better myself each most days.  My husband is my rock and my kids are my world.  My babies are complete opposites, one girl (Goose) and one boy (Bud) with almost 9 years between them. I can’t always re-use what I learned the first time around (you know, way back before Pinterest)! I’ll share what I’m learning (and I may ask for your expertise at times)!

We like to have fun, like most families!  We love playing outside, making crafts, being artsy, watching funny videos, reading books, and spending time together.  We have a lot of differences as well.  I’ll share some of our favorite activities, crafts, and books.  What are some of yours?

Welcome!

My goal is for us to support each other as we share inspiration, tips, and resources to maintain our sanity through it all!
