Welcome to A Hesitant Housewife
Thank you so much for stopping by!
In this blog you will find parenting and homemaking tips and tricks, cooking and meal planning, product reviews, DIY projects and crafts, 30 day challenges designed to better ourselves in various ways, organizing, how-to series, and bits of my life here in beautiful Minnesota.
My mission for my little corner of the web is to create a strong community of people who want to exchange ideas and encourage each other to lead our best lives.
Who I am
My name is Sloane and I am a feisty, opinionated, intelligent, and loving 38-year-old wife and mother of 2 (1 bio, 1 step).
I was in the nursing field for 8 years. After being jerked around by my employer for a while, my husband suggested that it would be better for all of us if I stayed at home with our son, Wyatt. I never anticipated nor had any desire to be a stay at home mom. However, after taking a long look at the big picture, I hesitantly agreed when my son was 6 months old.
I quit my full-time job (so incredibly satisfying) and I stayed on call / casual with my second job at a major hospital, until 10 months ago when they closed my unit. I am now officially an unemployed full-time SAHM.
If someone had told me 15 years ago about this totally unexpected direction my life would take, I would’ve laughed all the way to the bar. But alas, here I am and I love (almost) every minute of it!
I love my family, friends crafts, cooking, reading, writing, learning, and exploring new ideas.
My thirst for knowledge is a big part of why I started this blog. I am always researching things anyway so I figured I may as well share and connect with other people while doing it!
I would love to hear from you!
Are you a company that would like to collaborate with me? Please email me and let’s see how we can work together to reach our goals!
Thanks again for coming on this journey with me!
