Direction?

I've been thinking a lot about my lil' ol' blog lately. This June will be 5 years of blogging! 5 YEARS!!!!
When I first started this blog is was to document my busy crazy fun single life. And in that time, I bought a house, met my husband, got married, then had a baby. Oofta! (yes we really do say that in MN!)
Back in 2007 I had no idea what a blog was or where I wanted my blog to go. And really, I don't think many people did back then. I often wonder if I had started blogging and putting  myself out there, where my blog would be? But I just wanted to document all the fun I was having and I had no plans on going big or making money.
My first readers where a handful of friends & family and I loved all their comments and love towards my blog.
Did you know that my blog address used to be Puke Vs. Meow?!!! I'm totally not even kidding. And if you are reading this and remember that, you are awesome!  Puke vs. Meow was just a silly little inside joke that I won't even go into.
People that don't blog don't really get it, but I really enjoying blogging! It's a fun way to share what is going on in my life and what I am up to. Even if just a few people are reading, I don't mind, It's just a nice expression of who I am.
But I find now that I am a stay at home mom, I've kind of lost direction with this blog. For me it's not about growing my blog, although I always love new readers. And it's also not about making money, but it's fun to get a few $$ for what I do. It's really about having fun and writing and sharing what is going on in my life.
So I need a direction for my blog. I've been thinking about narrowing it down to a few things I really enjoy and blogging about those things.

  1. Crafting\DIY Projects. I love creating and turning junk into awesome stuff! It's so fun to share the fun things I've made and hopefully inspire others to make their own projects. 
  2. Cooking\Baking. If I wasn't a SAHM I would love to run a Bakery. I love cooking and baking. I used to blog once a week with a group of bloggers called Tuesday with Dorie. Every week I would bake some really yummy (and not so yummy) stuff along with some really awesome other bloggers. I miss posting the food I make. 
  3. Mommy Stuff.. Since I am now a full time mommy, I really want to write about that... I am by no means an expert (not even close) but I just want to write some things on my heart. 
So I am thinking I am going to blog three times a week about those three things. That way I'll have some direction and I can hold myself accountable to get the piles of projects and recipes done that I have been meaning to tackle. And I can also write from the heart, which I used to do a lot of, but not so much anymore. I just want to keep it real. 

Alright... I've gone on too long. It's time to continue my party plans for a certain little boy who is turning ONE in week & a half! WHAT? Where has the time gone?!?!?!?!?

These little guys grow so quickly. We are just going to ask people to meet us for a meal at a local mexican place. Ellie likes the music and we can eat outside. I even thought about getting a cactus smash cake.
