About Me

hey its me.pngsteph 1

I’m the Author of TheHappeningHousewife.com
I’m Married to my IRL prince charming, James- an avid gym member, software tester, photographer, and love of my life!

We spend a lot of our time together Netflix binging (currently watching Suits) and celebrating life’s silly moments when we’re not hopping in the car for a spontaneous trip seeking adventure.

We have three adorable, wild, free-range boys. Col, KJ, and Linc. The only thing I love almost more than being a mom, is sharing our family adventures on my blog and bringing people together to celebrate life.



When I’m not blogging, I’m enjoying my littles and hubby, more than frequently avoiding massive laundry piles, doing crafty things, throwing parties, and watching my hubs take beautiful photos of families that we love.

I’m passionate about people, especially the little ones.
My hope is to continue to grow this blog to give us the opportunity for more family travel, adventurous shenanigans, and life long memories and to one day soon build the home we’ve always dreamed of so we can continue having babies and raise our small people to be the best big people they can be.


I’m totally guilty of buying random things we don’t need because it’s on sale but, Im doing better and hopefully won’t have to check in to a Shoppers’ Anonymous program anytime in the near future.

I love being a wife and mom, and all of our sporadic adventures.
While some days being a mama and a wife can feel overwhelming, especially when Linda the laundry pile is 6 feet high and I’m stepping on grapes and crackers every other move, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world.

I love my family and my friends and keep the ones I cherish as close as possible. I’ve learned over the years that with growth comes loss and that not everyone will stick around forever and that’s okay. So, hug them while you can and love them while you have them. The only thing you can give the world is your best!


One thing that I’ve discovered through blogging is that no matter how different our families and parenting styles may be, or how near or far you are to me, there are at least one or two things that we are bound to have in common! Because of that, I am so excited and grateful that you’ve found your place in my little corner of the world!

Raising littles can be hard and some days you may even feel like you aren’t
doing enough or that the job you’re doing isn’t quite right but, I try to share through this blog that I understand and I am right there with you battling similar battles, encouraging you to laugh along the way unless you really just need a good cry. In the end, we will win this war together of raising good little humans to become amazing big humans.

As much as I wish that we could all sit and eat cake pops in my kitchen while cry-laughing over our piles of laundry and Friends reruns together, that might be close to impossible so, instead- keep up with me here and find me on Facebook and Insta to catch us on our down time!
