Hi there! I’m Amanda…Jesus lover, mommy to 4 beautiful kids, chocolate ice cream addict, and married to the funniest guy I know (and who also makes frequent hilarious appearances on my Instagram stories). I love bargain shopping, DIYs, mystery novels, How I Met Your Mother…and did I mention the chocolate ice cream addiction?
I started blogging in 2017 after deciding to end my 9 years as a teacher to stay home with my son, Lincoln. Moving from two incomes to one was an adjustment, but after a while we found our groove! I was able to cut our spending by shopping the sales, learning how to meal plan, doing more DIYs at home…and just learning to be happy at home. I also found that less stress over money made our home so much happier! I would get asked by other SAHM friends how I kept my grocery bill so low, or how I got such a good deal on “xyz”, or how I did that cute DIY! I loved sharing bargain finds, meal planning advice, fun DIYs, gratitude gifts, and more…and that’s when Her Happy Home was born!
About Her Happy Home
So, why “Her Happy Home”? Well, for as long as I could remember I have dreamed of being a wife and mom, and I’ve always had dreams and visions about cultivating a home full of love, safety, and joy. And that can take the form of many things for me: creating a warm space with affordable home décor and DIYs, making our tummies happy with meals that have been planned for the week, finding the best deals on gifts to make holidays and occasions special ,yet affordable, creating memories, traditions and so. much. more. I want to foster happiness and joy in our home while making it a cozy and inviting haven for my family and all who enter! I started Her Happy Home as a space to share (and hopefully inspire you with) ideas to make your home happy as well, while staying frugal and keeping it budget-friendly at the same time! I hope you leave here encouraged and with a smile on your face!
Let’s be friends!
