Back to the old format?

Hey y’all! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted since Jeff has recently had some more time at home, so we have been enjoying our newfound quality time by filling our weekends with fun adventures!

Here’s what we’ve been up to (including, but not limited to:) DIY home decor, trying new recipes, starting another blog, celebrating my 27th birthday and our 2nd Anniversary, Jeff getting promoted, and getting ready to travel to Ohio to see family after over a year of being away. All of that looks something like this:







I have also been toying with the idea of going back to my old daily format, but wanted to get as many opinions as I could before I do anything. Before starting my health journey at the beginning of this year, I had a format that looked like this:

Monday: Fashion Feature
Tuesday: Teaching Tips/Nannying/Tuesday Tester
Wednesday: Around the House – DIY ideas or before&afters of our home
Thursday: Pinterest Post
Friday: Fitness Feature
Saturday: What’s on my mind – random thoughts/weekend fun
Sunday: Recipe of the Week

So I need a little input…
what would you like to see on The Wife Life?
Is there a type of article you love? Could you live without one of the suggestions above? Do you want daily posts or just semi-weekly?

send me your ideas in the comments below!!!

Love you guys!!


Nanny Notebook Update & More!

Hey guys! This past weekend and this upcoming weekend I have family in town so you won’t hear from me, but I’ve got a few exciting updates for you all!

1. The Nanny Notebook post is blowing up on Pinterest and the Blogosphere (thank you!!!!) and I have officially gotten around to posting the PDF versions of my Printables on the post. If you check it out here, you can easily download and print them from your home computer!

2. I’ve started a side project just for funsies and hope you’ll check it out. It’s called The Dessert Project and every week I’ll be posting a new splurge-worthy easy dessert to make at home out of box mix or other convenience baked good items you can find in your local supermarket! For all of you who have missed my unhealthy delicious recipes, this is for you!


3. We’ve got almost 11,000 views and 128 followers and I just wanted to say….YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!! Thank you so much! I know The Wife Life isn’t a well known blog like some others, but, man, do you all make me feel so loved! When I started The Wife Life, I didn’t think I’d ever hit 10 followers, let alone over 100 and views in the ten thousands?!?!!!!!!!, I’m so overwhelmed and grateful! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Keep spreading the love and I love hearing from you all!

GWC Day 23 – New Opportunities?

Morning Weight: 145.2
Pounds to Goal: 20.2

Workout: 1 hour walking around the zoo with a baby strapped to my chest + 3 mile walk with the pups after work

So I’ve been looking into many additional work opportunities to help bring in a little more “fun money” for Jeff and I to be able to travel home more often and enjoy our time to the fullest here in SoCal. I follow the Shaytards vlog on YouTube (they ROCK, by the way!) and in this video, Shay and his wife, Colette, share their success story of becoming debt free and switching work to something that they love.

Since I already know that my career passions are with teaching, but my opportunities are limited here in San Diego, and I’m enjoying nannying for now, I’m looking into monetizing my blog. I know it will make for a long process and lots of hard work and dedication, but I think it could ultimately lead to a solid (albeit small) income that can move with us while we are still within Jeff’s Navy career.

Now what I’d love from all of you, is some feedback.

What kinds of things do you love reading about on The Wife Life?

Are you enjoying the daily recounts of my health or would you like more in depth workouts to follow along with me?

Or maybe you’re all like, “Lisa, I’m happy that you’re trying to be healthy, but give me more of those Chocolate Chess Pie recipes!”

Are you a fan of the DIY and Pinterest projects that I do around here? Then shout it from the rooftops!!!

I’d love to get as much feedback as I can before I start morphing The Wife Life into something much bigger and better for you guys!!


P.S. Today officially marks the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of The Wife Life!!! Eeeeeekkkk!!!! So exciting!! I love you guys, for real 🙂
