You guys! I’m pretty sure I haven’t shared my exciting news with you that I’ve been keeping a secret for like MONTHS! Ok, so it’s exciting for me at least, maybe not you! The story starts over this past year. Let’s just say I’ve been STRESSED to the max. Full time job, two kids and now three kids at home, a husband, a blog, life….you get the picture. I was BUSY. Real busy. And a little stressed… ok a LOT stressed.

I’d become a not very nice person to be around. I was cranky with the hubs, short with the kiddos and generally not real happy about anything. That could have been half blamed on the pregnancy not going to lie, but the other part was I was working ALL.THE.TIME. I’d get done at my regular job, come home do the dinner and kids thing, then rush them off to bed and sit at the computer for 1-2 hours every night. On the weekends I’d be making recipes, filming videos, scheduling pins, scheduling Facebook and shoving my kids out the door. It was not fun. I LOVE this blog but, well, something had to give. Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot! Only One Dish to Clean and You Have an Easy Dinner Recipe!


Let’s just say as much as I want to be superwoman I’ve learned I’m not. I tried to figure out how to add about 10 hours to a day and that didn’t happen either. I was at a crossroads on what to do. Step back from the job? Step back from the blog? Continue to be stressed? Sell my children?

Ok, I’m kidding. The latter one was not an option! But, in all seriousness I had to do something. The hubs kept telling me. I finally listened.

Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot! Only One Dish to Clean and You Have an Easy Dinner Recipe!

Actually, what I did was pray and pray hard. I asked my Mom to pray, I asked the hubs to pray. I needed some guidance. Well, I more or less needed the good Lord to just pave the route out in a yellow brick road because I’m not real good at letting go and trusting. And pave the way did He!

I kept going back and forth on just quitting my full-time job completely, but I didn’t want to. I love my job, I love the people I work with and I wasn’t ready to let go of that. Unfortunately, we don’t exactly have “part-time” positions where I work. What to do? Plus, if I quit my job then the kids stay home and that’s a full-time job there so I felt like I wouldn’t be accomplishing much. I’d be taking care of them and still blogging on the nights and weekends.

Then in December at an employee meeting my General Manager announced they were hiring a few part-time positions. Say what? Part-Time? My head was spinning. This was my answer. I had to have faith that this was it. I don’t think I listened to much after that as I zoned out. After the meeting I quickly rushed into his office and announced that I wanted to go part-time if it was an option. I literally thought he was going to fall over as he stood there looking at me like I was nuts. Whoops!

He graciously said, Ok but asked me to think about it before they did anything for sure. I said sure I’ll do that. I went back and forth, it was a hard decision. I wanted to do it all. I can’t do it all. I had to come to terms with that. I was letting go of a lot of security if I went part-time. Mainly the benefits that my job offered, but my hubs now has a job that has great benefits to and we were doing that so I could possibly go part-time or quit my job. I had to remember that. Remember? The Lord literally placed everything I asked for in my prayers in front of me! The hubs got a new job with benefits, we had a part-time position, the blog was doing great…. paved the way! It was like He kept handing me a sign and going DO IT!!!Instant Pot {Pressure Cooker} Hamburger Stroganoff ~ Our Favorite Meal Now in the Instant Pot!

There was a lot of things I had to remember and have a little faith in. As I went on maternity leave we just left things hanging at work. They hoped post pregnancy would clear my head and I’d become super woman and come back full-time. Unfortunately, I emailed them and asked them to make it official a week ago.


I’m still nervous, I’m still anxious but I’m so excited!! I will work about 2 1/2 days a week and the rest of the time I will focus on my blog during the day. I might lay on the couch at night and watch crap television, or maybe on the weekends I’ll be able to hang out with my kids and husband! I mean, that’s the point of having them, right? Plus, as the kids get older everyone keeps telling me life gets BUSIER and I don’t have time for busier, but now I do! Maybe…

So keep reading, keep pinning, keep making my recipes so I know I did the right thing… ok? Thanks for making my dreams come true!!

Oooooo by the way. This recipe rocks. I took my all time favorite Hamburger Stroganoff recipe and made it in the Instant Pot!!! Don’t have an Instant Pot? What are you waiting for? Seriously. You guys. If you are as crazy busy as me you need one ASAP.
