Who's From Texas?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bridget @ The Nutty Hiker Aug 26, 2016. 3 Replies

So I'm from NJ. Just recently moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area for my hubby's job. Just was curious how many bloggers are from Texas? Because I knew no one in NJ who did blogging! So if you're…Continue

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
My name is Jacquelyn Balla. Everyone mostly calls me “Jackie”. I’m just a REAL housewife from New Jersey who traded in the Jersey life for the country life in Texas. I may not flip a table, drive expensive cars, I do not have money or live in a mansion home, but my definition of a real housewife is simple, just be you. I’ve been born and raised in central New Jersey, and recently relocated to Dallas, Texas. My prince charming used to work 2 jobs to support our family, but not anymore thanks to his new job here in Texas. Not only am I a real housewife, but I am also a busy mother to two incredible adventurous boys, Aiden and Nolan.

As a real housewife I wear many hats. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, cook, baker, cleaning lady, laundry lady, organizer, decorator, chauffeur and now to add to the list… a blogger.

My blog is where I lay out my confessions, and where I choose to put myself on “time out.” Some blogs that I read and follow have sections where they talk about their lives, and their journeys, and that’s okay! But these professional blogs always seem to make things look perfect. Me personally, I would love for my blog posts and pictures to be perfect. But let’s be real here people, there is nothing perfect about motherhood or life in general. My blog posts are going to be as real as they get. When I post pictures of my recipes or whatever topics I will be discussing, you will see my children in the background, and a mess of toys and crumbs on the floor. I’m sure other moms who will be reading my blog will be able to relate to the topics and craziness of the everyday mom life.

My oldest son Aiden who has PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) is on the mild side of the spectrum. Being a parent of a child, who has special needs, is not easy. But based on our journey that we have been through, I want to be an encouragement to other families who are walking through what we have gone through. You are not alone in this. Head over to Aiden’s Journey With PDD to learn more about Aiden’s story.

My recipes that I post in my blogs are for the picky eaters. When I watch the Food Network and the Cooking Channel and see these stars cook with different ingredients and what not, I just sit there and say to myself “Nope! My family won’t eat that!” Although we are a family of picky eaters, my recipes have been served and approved by my family and friends. They are always saying how delicious my meals are! When I bake and want other critics, I bring my baked goods to friends homes or gatherings and get their opinions. So far all my baking and cooking recipes have been unanimous! Delish!
What is your blogging philosophy?
Just be yourself. Don't try to be like some one else, don't be fake. Just be you and real. Every blogger offers something different that other bloggers do not. Every one has a story to tell, and every story is unique in every way.
I have been blogging since...
January 2016
