Meet The Villagers
Hi y’all! I’m Mandie, a South Carolina transplant with my husband, two teenagers and our fur baby, Dino.
We packed up and moved here from WV on a whim in 2015 and never looked back. We ended up just outside Charleston and absolutely love it!
Here’s a little bit more about our family…
They like to eat, I like to cook. It works out well. I’m a total foodie, raw milk drinker and try to stick to feeding my family food that is as nourishing as possible. We try to eat as organic and nongmo as we can but still trying to be as frugal as possible. I buy as much as I can from local farmers and food co-ops.
I’m currently working on building our little backyard homestead. We’re living on a postage stamp of a yard but trying to maximize as much as possible! Stop back by throughout the year to see how far we’re getting.
Finally, why is this blog called 5 To 9 Mom?
That’s a simple one. It’s because no mom just works 9 to 5. Mommin is hard. It’s a job in itself. I don’t know about you but I’m mommin from the time my feet hit the floor at 5am until I’m crawling into bed at 9pm. It’s never mattered if I was at home full time or working 65+ hours per week in a corporate job. I’m always on duty as a mom. All mamas are. Hence the reason I’m the 5 to 9 mom.
