I’m Crystal, the resident Mrs here at Mrs Happy Homemaker.
I love the ‘old fashioned’ way of life and doing things.
A few years ago, I was constantly taking photos of food I had cooked & posting them on my personal facebook page. My friends started calling me ‘Mrs Happy Homemaker’ and urging me to create a blog. Hence the start of MrsHappyHomemaker.com
I like to consider myself to be a domestic diva – but minus the diva part. Unless your definition of a diva walks around in their jammies with their hair in a ponytail 99% of the time. If so, then that’s me all the way.
I take 90% of the photos here on the Mrs outside with my Nikon D3100 & a reflector. My neighbor doesn’t know that I’m a food blogger, and most likely thinks I’m completely crazy. I’m sure that seeing me outside in my pajamas, standing on top of a chair & taking pictures of biscuits doesn’t exactly portray me with a ‘normal stamp’
Speaking of normal, I’m far from it. But who wants to be normal? Seriously – where’s the fun in that?!
I homeschool my 3 children. No, I’m not Amish. Yes, my kids are socialized.
I’m one of those crazy coupon ladies that you hate to get behind in the checkout lane.
I love to cook. I also love to eat. I don’t love cleaning after I’ve cooked, and ate.
I live in the same tiny town in North Carolina that I was born in.
I have a Southern accent. (Check out my segment on Fox & hear for yourself!)
I’m addicted to sweet tea. And my Mama’s biscuits.
I was country when country wasn’t cool.
I love The Judds. So does my mother. When I was little, Mama used to fantasize about she & I being the next ‘Judds’. My mother has a beautiful voice. However, that dream of hers didn’t last long when it became very clear that my singing could inspire a horror film.
Since we’re on the subject of The Judds… This cookbook by Naomi Judd was my very first cookbook. I have literally made every single recipe in it, and it’s still my very favorite one of all that I own.
I secretly want to be a Golden Girl.
I love critters. I think I may have been Elly May Clampett in a previous life.
I am a Disney fanatic.
I love to be barefoot.
I can’t draw a straight line to save my life.
Most of all, I love posting here at Mrs Happy Homemaker – and I hope that you enjoy my postings as much as I love bringing them to you.
You can email me at Crystal@MrsHappyHomemaker.com – I’d love to hear from you!!
