I have some 'splaning to do!

Do you want the good news or bad news first?

Good News: I'm back!
Bad News: I'm over a year late. :(

First off, I'm sorry I lied. When I posted last, back in September 2011, I said I needed to take a month away from blogging but that I would be back in October. Yea... that was 14 months ago. So technically, I lied. But I promise it was for a good reason and I'm really hoping you are a "better late than never" sorta person!

Remember the health problem I mentioned? Turns out I had, as my husband liked to say, a "parasite." (I'm being sarcastic... I totally knew I was pregnant.)

His name is Bug (not really, but that is what we call him) and he is now 10 months old.

Yep, Mrs. 2010's Housewife is a mommy! SURPRISE! I am sooo going to get one of those t-shirts that says "I'm so crafty, I make people."

I just told a friend today that everyone knows a child is going to change their life, but no one is prepared for just how much! Becoming his Mom has not only added to my life, it has made me a completely different person.

Needless to say, The 2010's Housewife is going to change too. In fact, it's changing to a whole new blog!

I have missed blogging, but not everything about it. I don't miss the pressure to blog everyday or the fact that keeping track of advertisers/sponsors/giveaways was a full-time job. This time around, blogging will be something that adds to my life- not adds stress to my life!

I learned a big lesson when I decided to dust off the virtual cover of my blog book after months of inactivity. What did I find? The 2010's Housewife has had more traffic the last 14 months than it did when I was posting multiple times a day! What does that tell me? You like me... you really like me! :) For that reason I'm giving you the new & improved Mrs. Housewife (+ mommy).

I hope you like it! I have been working with an amazing designer named Sara from MoonsteamDesign, who has been so helpful, enthusiastic and encouraging!

I think it's safe to assume that my posts will be moving more in the new Mommy direction, but I still enjoy crafting, cooking and all the other creative stuff I used to blog about- so if you were a fan/follower before, I hope you continue to enjoy my new content. (Only this time around, I won't be clogging your Google Reader with content that isn't really special to me!)

I want to say that this time around I am going to try to post only what my readers want to read, but in all honesty, I'm probably just going to be posting what I feel like talking about. My hope is that you are still interested! But if at the end of the day, it's just me left standing I'll be okay with that. I'm sure my mom will continue reading so I'm guaranteed at least one follower!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy following along on my new adventure as Mrs. 2010s Housewife + Mommy!
