Get to know me


If you’re pregnant or a first-time mom or a working mom, then you came to the right blog. Here, you’ll find those things and more! I love imparting the knowledge I’ve gained to others – especially since I felt the most unprepared for things like pregnancy and motherhood. So…I decided to take the things I’ve learned and translate them to a blog which I hope you'll benefit from! And trust me, I did A LOT of research.

I’m in my 30’s and have an adorable baby boy (Liam) and wonderful husband named Peter. We just got married in September! We live in the Chicago suburbs and love to travel. The tough thing is, we don’t make a ton of money. But I pride myself on being able to pay our bills, go out to eat, and still travel a few times a year. Heather’s my name and finding deals is my game! And now, with a baby, the challenge is even more real.


I love being a mom. It’s a brand new experience for me (obviously!): I’d never held a baby before my own, I never even thought I’d find someone to marry or have a child with-so I never prepared, and I was just generally naïve when it came to motherhood. But along the way I’ve already learned so much and want to share these things with other mamas who are feeling the same way.

I enjoy crafting, baking, finding deals, and planning. Yes, I enjoy planning! I planned my entire wedding, my own baby shower (most of it), and am always the planner when my friends and I take trips together. In fact, I recently became an independent travel agent with Magical Moments Vacations! Check out this page for more info.

I’m a bit Disney-obsessed, too. I’m originally from California and grew up going to Disneyland. Now, I try to make it there once a year. I can’t wait to take my son!
