Welcome to all my Ultimate Blog Party Hoppers! I know you are all busy jumping from blog to blog finding all sorts of new and wonderful bloggers. To keep it short and sweet I’ll introduce myself and then tell you the rest of the story with pictures to keep you moving right along.
I am The Happy Housewife. I have been blogging on this site for over a year. I feel like my site can be summed up by my tagline, “thriving on one income in a two income world.” I am always looking for ways to save money and reuse items in order to live thriftier and “greener.” This year our challenge is to live on half my husband’s income in order to save for a house. I am also a military wife and mom of 6 (soon to be 7 kiddos) so I write about military life, kids, and homeschooling. The newest project on my site is writing Our Story, or the story of how my husband and I met, got married a few weeks later and well, it isn’t finished yet so I don’t want to give away the ending.
Now on with the photos….
This is me, the picture is actually a bit deceiving because we don’t live on a farm… we live in the suburbs of D.C.
This is the rest of the fam…
Yes, I am married to Mr. Incredible. You can read all about him here.
We have a big family, sometimes people ask if we are trying to field a baseball team, I tell them we prefer soccer.
We love parties so much around here we celebrate 8 of them every year… but that wasn’t enough so this year we are adding another!
We especially love making and eating cake, would you care to join us for some ice cream cake?
or perhaps a Barbie Cake?
I almost always make the cakes myself, because I am frugal…. and I have lots of help in the kitchen.
I love to cook and share many of our family recipes too.
Okay, I don’t really make meals like that, they look more like this…
Every other week I write about Commissary deals to help military families stretch their grocery budget.
I also run a program that donates expired coupons to our military families overseas.
Occasionally I will post super great bargains, like how to get free ice cream just by going out in your pajamas.
We love to have fun and learn ways to make things cheaper and better ourselves.
I love to sew and find new ways to use old things.
Thanks for stopping by, I promise I won’t keep you any longer.

There are some great prizes up for grabs at the Ulitmate Blog Party this year. I hope I win some cute hair bows from Chesapeake Ribbons, for my soon to be 3 girls. Or maybe a Made by Michelle diaper bag for the new baby. A gift card to the Heavenly Homemakers gift shop would be great too!
