Mom telling Santa what she wants for Christmas.

Mom telling Santa what she wants for Christmas.

At the end of my sophomore year at Auburn University (WAR EAGLE), I called my mom to discuss what I was going to declare for a major.  Home ec education or accounting were her two options to help me choose from.  In about 10 seconds, together, we decided it should be Home Ec Education.  After my first year of teaching, I went back to night school to start working on a degree in Accounting.  My students were bigger and more worldly than me and ate my lunch on a daily basis.  Marriage and children followed shortly after and I have spent the last 18 years as a happy homemaker.  I do love all things home ec-whether it is cooking, sewing, family, gardening, or taking on minor home and repair projects.  I will share the good, the bad and the ugly of my home pursuits and hopefully you will learn from my successes and mistakes.
