About Me

Here is a little bit about who I am, Janel, who owns and runs gooddealmama.com

Christian: I am first and foremost a follower of Christ. I believe in living my life for Jesus and striving to do what is right always. I may make mistakes along the way but can always find peace in God’s love and forgiveness.

Wife: I am lucky to be married to my high school sweetheart. I have been with my husband for 10+ years. He is continually making me a better person. He is the leader of our family and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am a firm believer in being a wife like Colossians 3:18-19 : 18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.  Here is a great article about being a submissive wife to your husband And one day I will share why I am a submissive wife.

Mom: I have two wonderful children. Both boys, Cameron, 7 and Caiden, 4. They are so funny, smart, all around awesome-sauce :) I am very blessed to be able to be a “stay at home mom” and try to raise respectful and happy children.

Blogger: I love being able to blog to you, my readers everyday. I have been “blogging” since 2009, but really focused on “full-time blogging” in Jan. 2010. This blog was truly started so I could stop “bugging” my friends and family with all of my finds of “good deals” my site name actually came from my love of good mamas cloth diapers that I used on my youngest son. I  learned how to coupon on a cloth diapering trading site! So its really fitting.

Friend: I try to be a friend that I would want. I have less then a handful of close friends but would do anything for them. My friends are more like family to me, and my sister is more like a best friend. I love them all and they are a big part of who I am today!

Chef: Everyday I strive to become a better cook. My husband jokes that when I first met him I messed up cooking macaroni and cheese and hot dogs. I used to HATE cooking! Now, I love to share with you my latest recipes and creations that I find. I love recipes that are quick, easy, and yummy! I am not a gourmet chef but have a new found love for cooking I never thought I would!

Comedian: I am a firm believer laughter is the best medicine! I think I can be funny hopefully others agree with this self description :) Game nights around here are full of belly laughs!

Deal Seeker: LOVE a good deal 😉 and for the most part can NOT STAND to pay full price for something. Seriously I am pretty sure I find a way to save on almost anything! I love flea markets and thrift stores. I actually prefer older, used furniture to the crap that you find nowadays. I hope to start showing you more “flea market finds” and other creative decor ideas coming up soon!

Event Planner:  as in I run an Event Planning business called Eventful with my best friend. But also as in I have to plan the events of my life. I need to know whats going on at all times and HATE when things are out of control. Which is alot of the time, so I am working on getting better about “going with the flow”

{Oh, P.S. if you are in the Harrisburg, PA area and need a great event service, seriously, Contact me 😉 }

Random:

*My favorite decor things right now are as follows: Burlap, Teal, Chicken Wire and items that combine wood with metal.

*   I am soon turning 30 and plan to get my booty in shape before then, so maybe I will blog about it :)

*  I love to read and if I get into a book my house may not get clean. SO I have to limit when I start a good book

*  I am the oldest of my siblings and I have 8 of them but we didn’t all grow up in the same house. My youngest brother is younger then my youngest child.

* I am a NURSE by trade *

* I have naturally curly hair that doesn’t know its curly so its a daily struggle to tame it. Read about how I care for my curls here
