Hi, I’m Christie! Welcome to my lifestyle blog, I’m glad you are here!

I originally decided to begin this blog because I wanted to document what my life would be like as I transition from an elementary school teacher with no kids, to a stay at home mom with a newborn baby. I am hoping to share how we have adjusted from living on two incomes to one income, and what we do to live life to the fullest.

I grew up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I lived a good life as a child, and I was fortunate to be able to afford to go to college and get a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I was a teacher for 4 years prior to having a child. My husband and I moved to Austin, TX in 2014 in order to have better jobs. We love living in Texas and we enjoy the many adventures that this state provides.

I enjoy makeup, reading, budgeting, and snuggling up with my sweet cat, Matilda. You can still have a fulfilling life while on a budget.
