Guest Blogger - In This Crazy Life

Hello, lovelies!

I'm Bethany, a wife, Momma, professional teenager wrangler and blogger from over at In This Crazy Life. I'm super thankful to Meg for letting me hijack A Little Knick Knack for the day to share with you some of what is going on in my world!

I like to say my blog is about life with a shot of sarcasm, lots of laughs and tons of love...because if I didn't have those three things I would seriously be bald by now (I cant drink at work, so I gotta have an outlet!).  I am the wife of the best guy I know, Mommy to my gorgeous little man, an avid DIY-er, cheapskate extraordinaire, a ninth grade science teacher, and lover of all things creative. My life is a basket o' crazy fo 'sho...every day is an adventure and not always one I wish I was on.

One of my favorite sayings is that the best ideas spring from necessity- and its necessary that I have pretty things on the cheap.  So rather than pay for them, I figure out how to DIY them with my crafty ways and my husbands extensive power tool collection.

One of my favorite DIY projects was Grayson's subway art.  I had been drooling over these online for weeks, but couldn't bring myself to pay the $26 for a piece of paper and like twenty-five cents worth of ink from my printer.  (Esp. when they wanted $5.95 for shipping- its a piece of paper for crying out loud, a stamp would have shipped it!)

Also in an effort to get myself organized before Grayson's arrival I made these closet size organizers. I started with size dividers I got from eBay in an attempt to organize all his little clothes. They're super cute and work well for Daddy's who don't realize that a week old baby will swim in a sleeper that's for 18 months and Grandpa's who forgets that an 11 pound kiddo just isn't going to fit into them super teeny newborn pants. (My kid looked like he was preparing for the flood, it was hilarious.)

My other love is food. You don't gain 40+ pounds while preggers when you're on a diet.  Nope, I lived it up. However I'm a firm believer that food should be easy, inexpensive and should not take more time to make than to eat. Now that the bean is here, we have to figure out how to make some of our restaurant faves at home; like these cheater Cheddar Bay Biscuits that kick the butt of the ones at Red Lobster because I added bacon. Mmm. Bacon.

Well that's me in a nutshell, lovelies! Thanks for letting me hang out today, Meg, its been a blast! Hope you'll all stop by and see what else I have going on sometime!

 Happy Tuesday!
