Hi there! I'm new to this community. Well, I'm 21 years old, almost 22 and I've been married for almost 3 years now. Currently I have an Associates Degree that I had planned on transferring to a university. I've always wanted to be a housewife/homemaker for as long as I can remember. Right now I'm hoping to get my nursing degree though and work for a few years. Once I'm done with that I'm hoping to settle down and be a stay at home mommy. Do any of you have suggestions for a tight budget? Anyone ever tempted to go out and get a job? Right now I'm strictly going to school so I pretty much manage the house the best I can anyway. But like a lot of you know I'm sure things have been pretty grim in the financial aspect of life. Anyways, hello and please tell me about yourself. ^_~

So, funny story.

My friend and I started this community four years ago when her sister got married to a wealthy Englishman and lived a life we thought to be amazing.  Since then, they have had two children and continue to live a comfortable life.  I do not know if she has a job now or not.

Neither of us have looked at this community in years (or livejournal, for that matter).

I am honestly happy to see that some girls have found it and utilize it, and if anyone would like to take over as a moderator and improve this community, send me a comment however possible and let me know, and I'll give you the password and whatever else you would need to take over.


I find it hilarious that CosmoGIRL would mention this community in an article of theirs, slamming us as misled young girls.  Feminism is about CHOICES.  The CHOICE to either be a career-woman, or a housewife, or both.  That's the beauty of the feminist movement!  We get to CHOOSE what we want to do with ourselves, rather than be told what to do.

 

As for us, Emily is pregnant, due in December, set to be married next year, and very happy with Brendan.
I am living with my boyfriend, Brian, while finishing up my bachelor's degree.  We have a dog, Colby.

We are both very happy maintaining the houses and cooking for our significant others.  It's what we always wanted, and we are STILL PURSUING OUR CAREERS.  We're doing what makes us happy, which includes taking care of our boys.

Girls: Cook, clean, make money, love, be happy--it's what being a woman is all about!

hi my name is Amirah i am 23 and i am a domestic goddess lol..... my husband works for Sony (the computer /electronic side) and me i am a housewife/ college student . i dont really know how to cook lol but i do everything else since my husband works all day. pretty much i spend my days home or out shopping , visiting other housewife friends, exercising, and taking lessons in french and arabic.

my only goal in life wasnt to be a housewife but i always knew i would be a housewife even though i didnt spend my teenage years sewing , or cooking or stuff like that .... i always thought that was rather silly lol but am am enjoying it now my husband knows how to do everything imaginable and i love it! we cook together and he teaches me recipies (hes Algerian/ canadian and me i am black/hispanic), and he sews lol but we never needed that skill

to my husband i am his wife, best friend, personal assistant , financial advicer, shrink ,doctor , and so much more.

my advice to the girls who want to be houswives is get an education first because if something ever happens to your husband and you have to work you need something to fall back on. i currently have one college degree and am close to finishing my second and third... all the housewives in my community have at least a bachelors in a range of fields form communications to chemistry and psychology.

also familarize yourself with everything not just cooking and cleaning and sewing those are great but  you need to really have a good understanding of how to budget money, filing taxes, paying bills, everything.

good luck to you all and may you make it  to the housewife club

Amirah

I'm happy that I found this community! Kindred spirits. :) I'm Aubrey. I'm 20 years old. I cannot wait to get married to my boyfriend of 2.5 years. I'm currently attending a university to get my BA in English. After we're both out of college (or at least I am), I become housewife extraordinaire. Exciting. I'm so glad that my boyfriend and I found each other. He completely understands and appreciates (and encourages!) my reasons for wanting to be a housewife/mommy. I'm inspired by my own mother. How many of us here are inspired by our mothers, by the way?

When speaking of your future (or current situation) plans of being a housewife, do you come across a lot of displeasure from others?
I firmly believe I wasn't accepted into a "college" within my larger university because I honestly answered the question of what my future plans were. I said that I planned on becoming a stay-at-home-mother while giving private violin lessons instead of saying that I planned on becoming the world's greatest violinist (or something equally over-the-top). In any case, I believe that they didn't accept me because I wasn't "valuable" enough to them. I wouldn't be going out and continuing their legacy of teaching. Rediculous.

I hate how if a woman (or even a man) decides to provide for her family exclusively, she is viewed as lazy, not living up to her full potential or other unpleasant things like that. I don't think many people realize that being a mother and keeping a house is a full time job in itself. It really is. It's not an easy task, either.

New here! And with a recipe! [11 Mar 2008|01:31am]

Hello! I'm new here! I just joined. My name is Caitlin, and I hope to be a domestic goddess in the future. I'm still in high school right now, but I cook, clean, do laundry, etc. for my entire family. I LOVE cooking! It's one of the very BEST things in the whole world! I cook for my boyfriend (future husband!) all the time, and I make EVERYTHING from scratch. I love keeping a house clean and tidy, and I love taking on the 'motherly' role, also. After high school though, I plan to go to college and get my bachelor's in Art Education, so I can become a certified art teacher. My boyfriend is coming with me and he's going to study to become a history teacher. After college, we're going into the Peace Corps for 27 months, and then back home to settle down. I want to get a job, build up some money, get a MUCH bigger house and start my family. I want no less than 3 children. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I love kids, and I want a FULL house. I want to take time off work to raise my family, but when all the children become school-age, I hope to return to work as a teacher, hopefully at the same school as my children. I want to be a mother that cooks a homemade meal EVERY night, and I hope to teach ALL my children (not just the girls!) the joys of cooking. I want to teach them how to read and write before they go into school. And I REALLY hope to continue to please my boyfriend (future husband). 

Anyway, that was just an introduction. And to complete my first post, I'm adding a recipe I tried today. It's SO GOOD! My boyfriend loved them!
Apple Strudel Muffins

INGREDIENTS
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped apples
1 cup shredded apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
 
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
 
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Stir in apples, and gradually blend in the flour mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.
Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan. Cool on a wire rack.

Standard Introductory Post [18 Feb 2008|06:51pm]

[ mood | happy ]

Hello everyone! I'm just typing this up to introduce myself since I'm new to this community, and hopefully I'll have things to contribute later. My name is Teresa, I'm eighteen years old and a college freshman at the University of South Florida. I'm a creative writing major- I love to write, and my goal for the future is to be able to do freelance writing work from home so I can take care of my home and future family. I love to sew and bake and am trying to get better at cooking; my mother took care of all cooking when I lived at home, and since I don't have an apartment-style dorm, I don't have access to a kitchen. I also love children and spent most of my summers as a nanny. 

I'm looking forward to learning more about all of you! (BTW- are there any rules I should know about before I accidently break one?)

Today I made banana muffins. It's a vegan recipe, so you don't use any eggs or dairy products and there is no cholesterol. Here's the recipe and a photo! Read more...Collapse )

Cake. [20 Jul 2005|09:44pm]

yourtrophygirl
Well, I stayed home to work tonight instead of going to some bonfire get together and I’ve already given up on that.
Instead, I am baking a yummy cake for my sweetie.

Lemon cake with chocolate frosting and berries.

My Kitchenaid mixer works like a dream. I love that thing, yes I do.
The batter came out as light as air, and the two thin cakes are now baking on shiny new cake pans.
The berries are slices and the lemons zested.

Wish me luck.

Yummy Egyptian Dessert [17 Dec 2004|05:37pm]

My son had to make an international food for his school's Christmas party. I found a recipe for Stuffed Dates. They don't sound that fabulous, but they are so yummy! It's very simple. Slice open the dates, insert nuts. Reclose the date and roll in sugar. They were so good! I haven't eaten dates that much, but I have a feeling we'll be eating them more often. Also, we used pecans and they were perfect. Just thought I'd share.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I did nothing domestic for Thanksgiving, except put away some dishes...
How about you?

Well.. For the truffle recipe, I don't need to put how to make brownies, right? Cuz you can find that anywhere. But! Just get a big bowl (a glass one would be cool, that way you can see all the layers and stuff), and the layers go like this:
brownies,
Cool Whip,
chocolate pudding,
brownies,
Cool Whip,
chocolate pudding,
Cool Whip,
broken up Heath Bar bits.

I'm pretty sure that's how it goes anyway. If when I go home and see that's not right, I'll make sure I change this. But What I just said sounds pretty good, anyway.


I was kind of domestic goddess-ish last night. Mark was pretty sick (aka too drunk) and throwing up, so I got him water and wiped his nose when he needed it. :) Even though throwing up is nasty, I still didn't mind doing it in the least. And then I washed his sheets (he didn't get the trash can the whole time). Maybe I'll even make his bed when I get it out of the dryer.

Well. That's it.
:)


Oh! I think we need more members. So I'm gonna promote.
If others could do it too, that would be splendid. Thanks!

domestic stuff [10 Nov 2004|09:08am]

[ mood | bouncy ]

my entries are always so boring but there havn't been any in a few days. i think this community just needs a little something to get it going....and ice breaker. what would a good hostess have as an ice breaker? nice thing to think about.

anyways, here are some domestic things that I have enjoyed doing lately: cleaning my room, did laundry at home this weekend, magically got buffalo sauce out of my favorite tank top (phew), cleaned the bathroom at the boyfriends house, and then i went to tackle the kitchen... halfway through the dishes i just got to some gross shit i couldnt even handle. his roommate had made scrabled eggs 4 days ago and just threw the pan in the sink, then put water in it... and then later he made ramen noodles and just dumped what he didnt want in the sink. I am happy to do both of their dishes any time becuase it is therapuetic for me, but this stuff smelled like barf. What would a domestic goddess do?

Also my roommate (who hasnt made an LJ yet but still aspires to be a domestic goddess) is bringing her aunts sewing machine up to school, and she is going to teach me how to sew. it looks pretty easy. i'm excited. ok that is all for now. peace girlies
