about not quite a housewife
Hi! I’m Mallory, the voice of Not Quite a Housewife and I am so so happy you’ve found Not Quite a Housewife!
I am a 29 year-old housewife who also holds down a full time job at one of the largest ad agencies in Minneapolis. My husband, Jesse and I have been married for almost 2 years and own a home in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Health and wellness are very important to both Jesse and I. Without our almost daily workouts a healthy diet we are not happy people.
I started Not Quite a Housewife with hopes of inspiring others like me; wives with very hungry husbands who not only juggle all of the responsibilities of a housewife while working full-time and striving to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I consider myself a housewife and more. Because I value a healthy lifestyle and work-life balance I hope I can lend some valuable information and ideas to others out there who may be interested in learning about how others juggle it all.
One of our biggest struggles is keeping enough food in the house. Since both of us are working full time and trying our hardest to squeeze in our workouts after 5pm, figuring out what is for dinner (and having enough of it) is one of our biggest struggles. Plus; Jesse eats a lot. Like a ton, like I make a double batch of everything I cook and we often go through 10+ lbs of meat a week, ton. Okay, so maybe it’s not just him…I have always had a hearty appetite as well. Either way, the struggle is real folks!
I hope you enjoy the site and come back regularly to see what we’re up to and how I’m managing to keep us fed!
