MommySecrets

Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Welcoming Guests

I love hosting guests in our home. Before moving 'to the country' we lived in a small 2 bedroom house that made entertaining quite a challenge. I love being able to give guests their own space in our new home, and we've had so many friends and family members come visit. I feel so blessed!

I keep a file called "Guest Preferences", so I can remember the little things that make individual visitors feel welcome. Then I can remember extra things to pick up at the store, or cooking preferences, or favorite places to visit during their stay.

Here is a sampling of the notes:

Gramma & Papa
Cinnamon raisin bagels
Instant creamer
Apple butter
No pesto, seafood or super-spicy foods
Diet pepsi
Braeburn apples
Chocolate raspberry or Amaretto coffee
Fruit tea

Jake & Jenn
No chicken on bones
Lollipops

Mama B & Papa Tom
Diet coke
Splenda
Low sugar, low vitamin K


Holly & Jay
Vegetarian (chicken only)

Pete & Joy
Diet coke
Chocolate chip cookies

I like that idea....I also keep track of something for our company, i write down what meals I fixed for them, breakfast, lunch dinner and dessert, and then I write down if it was something they really liked. Plus when I need to make a menu quick I can always look back to see what I fixed for someone else. Thanks for the great idea!
