About Me

Hey y’all! I’m Crystal, aka ‘Mrs Happy Homemaker & welcome to my little ‘homestead’ on the web!

I’m a Southern Food Blogger – a homesteader – a widow – a mom to 3 – and a self declared biscuit queen.

I’m a North Carolina native (you may have seen me on Fox8 News there). I currently live in North Georgia but I drive back ‘home’ to North Carolina all the time.

A few facts about me…

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 homeschool my 3 children. No, I’m not Amish. Yes, my kids are socialized.

I love to cook. I also love to eat.  I don’t love cleaning after I’ve cooked, and ate.

I have a very heavy Southern accent.

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.

My maiden name is Crystal Light. Yes, like the lemonade. No, I was not named after the drink… It came out a year after I was born. However, I DO believe in Crystal Light because I believe in me 😉

Want another funny name in my family? My grandpa’s name was Buddy Light. I’ll give you one guess to what people would shorten that too…

I’m impatient.

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. Especially when it comes to Lady & the Tramp.

Bo Duke is the sexiest thing ever. Someone tell John Schneider to call me?

Speaking of Lady & the Tramp & Dukes of Hazzard – I collect memorabilia from both.

I love traveling – especially when there’s some ‘honey hole’ antique shops on the way & some good hole in the wall restaurants too!

I adore to be barefoot. Shoes are overrated.

I despise the beach. The sun, the sand, the salt water. Ehhh, I’d rather not.

I LOVE the mountains though. They’re my happy place.

Antiquing & road trips are my favorite things to do.

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.

xoxo, Crystal
