latriciaHi, I am Latricia (Tricia), the voice behind 1StopMom. I am a wife and stay at home mom of four beautiful children. Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I started blogging in 2008 as a way to hold myself accountable while getting out of debt. Later on it became an outlet for expressing myself. 1StopMom has grown into a place where I am able to connect with others while sharing my thoughts and opinions.

Who I am can not be fit into a neat little box and my blog is an extension me. I like to write about what is on my mind. This ranges from great deals I come across, family activities we take part in, everyday life, recipes and more. I also have the pleasure of reviewing new products and hosting giveaways for my readers.

Blogging is a huge part of my life. I love using it as a way share information.  I value the friends I have been able to make because of blogging. To me, it is a community that I love being a part of. And I will always remain a part of it.

My family is interesting and most times chaotic. We spend time watching movies, playing video and board games, joking around and enjoying each other.  Life definitely has it ups and downs and we are learning as we go. Definitely a journey, lol, that we are taking together.

The people in my life



My handsome and wonderful husband of 20 years. He is all about that fishing life.  He is super handy and can pretty much do anything! He cooks and build things (from new rooms in our home to cars!) His current project is remodeling our kitchen, from cabinets to flooring.

A independent young adult, Jazz is the hardest working Mom I know.  She loves to catch a great deal and fashion.

My princess with a heart of gold. She loves to cook and shop. She is my practical jokester.
