A little about the Mother of Everything
Hi y’all! My name is Brigitte and I am a stay at home mama of two, that lives in Dallas, TX. As a mom I have learned to embrace the little moments and to go with the flow (easier said than done sometimes). Being a mom has taught me a lot in life and still continues to do so every day.
Besides being a mom I absolutely love to spend time in the kitchen and make people happy through their tummy. Food brings people together and it is what I love most about cooking. There is nothing better than having your family and friends gather around the dinner table and OHH and AHH over a meal you prepared for them.
I have a real passion for cooking and baking and I love being the hostess (I am Always the Hostess lol – it’s a Friends thing, I am totally Monica Geller). I love to try new recipes and create new things with our favorite flavors. I am also a huge fan of DIY anything. If I see it in a store it better be dirt cheap for me to buy it or I will figure out a way to make it myself for cheaper. This mama loves a good deal! Late night Target stroller right here!
I have been with my best friend and love of my life for fifteen years (he’s my lobster) and we have two beautiful children together. Eric is the sweetest guy with one of the best smiles I have ever seen and he makes me laugh everyday. He is my High School sweetheart and is totally the Peanut Butter to my Jelly (I love sandwiches). We love to find yummy local restaurants that have good drinks and even better food and of course DESSERT.
I became a stay at home mom after my son, Nicolas was born in May 2017. There is never a dull moment around this house and I love every minute of it! I was able to spend time with Harper before she started Kindergarten in August and I was so happy that I was able to do so. Being a SAHM has been one of my most favorite jobs I have ever had.
Nicolas is now almost 17 months now and is all over the place, he gets into everything that he can. He is just the cutest to watch too! I forget how stinking cute they are at this age. Having a boy has been SO different from a girl! He definitely keeps us on our toes, that is for sure. Nic loves funny noises, Paw Patrol, playing with his Sissy and loves to snack and eat all the time.
Harper is my girly girl for sure! She loves all things princess and loves to be the center of attention, but also loves helping people. I always say we have a little actress, singer or Doctor on our hands. She just loves singing and dancing but will come running if she hears that you hurt yourself or there is blood involved. She just loves playing with her brother and wants a sister really badly but I keep explaining to her that’s not how it works. Some of my favorite things in life – besides my peoples – are cooking and baking, of course, watching the Rain, Beach vacations, Wombats (bucket list to hold one) Sandwiches, everything Disney and anything DIY – Pinterest junkie right here.
I love the TV show Friends (if you can’t tell by my above references) I have seen every episode a million times. I also enjoy any kind of mob or weather related movie like Goodfellas or Twister. Guilty pleasures have to be Netflix binges and anything chocolate, my weakness is for sure ice cream!
Oh and Margaritas let’s not forget those I LOVE a good margarita! And sandwiches, I love sandwiches, did I mention that already because I really love a good sandwich too!
The kitchen is my happy place and as a mom, where we spend 50% of our time. I love simple recipes that anyone can make and the less dishes it takes to make it, the better. I plan to share our family favorite recipes most of which are easy to make, even on a busy weeknight. Whether you are entertaining for the Holidays or just watching some football you have come to the right place for food and party inspiration.
My goal is also to connect with other Mamas out there, whether you are a working mom or stay at home mom. I want to share my mom stories and five-year wisdom, frustrations, kid friendly recipes, birthday party ideas plus all the things I have learned over the years. Sharing mom wisdom is essential I believe, we all could use some advice or help at times, right!?
So from being a STAM, Mom in general, or cooking, baking, DIY stuff, recipes, or whatever else is going on in our household, you can find it all here. Your one stop mom spot 😉
Thanks for visiting, and I hope y’all stay tuned for everything to come!
