Monday’s Maven

Full Name: Stephanie – but my friends call me Steph, my family calls me Steph-bunny


Stephanies Kitchen

Location: Raised all over California, Oregon and Utah.  But I consider myself a Utah-n, is that what we are called?

kids: Abbi is almost 5, Benni is almost 3 and Maddi is 8 months.

One Word that Describes You: Passionate

What makes you smile? My kids.  My husband.  My beautiful life. And maybe a really scrumptious looking cupcake…

What is one of your dreams you hope to accomplish soon? I don’t know about soon, but my big dream is to finish my degree so I can be a good example to my kids.

One of Your favorite motherhood moments? That first look your child gives you right after they are born.  They look at you like you are the only person in the world that matters.  Its pretty humbling. And special.  I’m lucky to have experienced that 3 times.

What is your guilty pleasure? I love baking, and eating.  If only I could stop eating what I bake.  That will be the day!

What do you love most about you? I love that I have strong values.

Favorite place? I was incredibly lucky to have been able to travel all around Europe twice with my Mom before I got married.  It’s hard to pick, but I’d have to say Ireland.  I’ve never seen such beauty.  If I could move to Ireland and live in an old abandoned castle, I would die one happy woman.

Who is your hero? My kids are my hero’s.  They have taught me more about myself and my life than anyone or anything ever has.  Hands down! They are smart little firecrackers, and they keep me focused on why I’m here.

Your advice to other mothers: Just enjoy every second!  With every child comes little stages that seem difficult and impossible to get through.  But when you look back, it really doesn’t seem so bad and you don’t want to regret not enjoying every second you have with them.  Try looking at everything in a positive aspect.  They grow so fast!

Didn’t you just love her favorite motherhood moment? Beautiful. Also if you live in Utah Stephanie will be on Studio 5 this morning, Feb. 15th @ 11am. I also think they are doing another blogging segment and will link to my spot on Studio 5 again! Thank you so much Stephanie! Her blog is one of my new favorites, seriously you have to check out the things she bakes!
