My name is Catherine. I am a Mormon stay-at-home mom of two who lives in the Tampa Bay area. I love to cook, hate to clean, & have a terminal weakness for Nutella-&-banana sandwiches. I’m not Martha Stewart, but my girls think I’m pretty great, & that’s what matters, right? My hopes & dreams include learning to take better pictures, running an under-2-hour half marathon, owning a pair of TOMS for every outfit, & attending culinary school if & when we pay off my husband’s law student loans.

Make Myself at Home is me sharing some of my adventures being a mom, as well as the kid-friendly recipes, crafts, activities & other ideas that I have come up with during my quest to find my inner domestic goddess.

I love meeting new people & getting more inspiration! Leave a comment (it’s fastest) or contact me at { makemyselfathome at gmail dot com }.
