As a work-at-home and stay-at-home mom with two children, my life definitely revolves around taking care of my family in some shape or form daily. In fact, on some days it feels like 24 hours go by before I get a break, and I cannot even remember the last time I had eight full hours of sleep. My guess is before I had kids, Ha!

So it’s really important to me that when I am looking for household recipes, tips, answers to questions, or even humor and relaxation that I don’t waste that time just wandering around the Internet in a blind daze. I need quality, I need recommendations, and I need to be efficient.
That is where StumbleUpon comes in. With recommendations from my fellow users, I can cut through the nonsense and get to the heart of the content.


The one thing I cannot stand to do is plan a menu. I am terrible at grocery lists, coupons, and even figuring out what portions I should be serving. I do love to cook however, so StumbleUpon has made it so easy for me to find new recipes to test out in my house. That is why I have to list the Food/Cooking Interest as my absolute favorite as a mom to Stumble and to add web pages to.

Recently I used StumbleUpon and was introduced to these amazing recipes:

I was also able to add a few web pages to this Interest that you may be interested in:



I don’t always have a ton of time, but I am most definitely a crafter by heart. I can’t paint, draw or even color in the lines, but I am mean with a glue gun. I am constantly Stumbling to find new and fun crafts that inspire me and make it easier to get creative with the kids.

Last, but not least at all, I spend a good deal of time on StumbleUpon for inspiration and humor. There is nothing a mom needs more than a pick-me-up and a good laugh. With an 8 month old, laughs can come in droves, but so do tears. When I get a moment, I like to make sure I include a pick-me-up!

Here are a few Stumbles lately that did that for me:

No matter whether you are a mom like me and looking to find some quick and easy ideas, or are just enjoying your time on the Internet, you will always find the best of the net referred right here by your fellow StumbleUpon community!
