Welcome to The Finer Things in Life! AmysFinerThings.com is a lifestyle blog dedicated to Embracing the Extraordinary in Every Day. This site encourages frugal, simple, at-home living; nurturing relationships as a faith-filled mother and wife; and living well for less.
I am a middle school teacher turned mom of five children, ages 9, 7, 5, 2, and brand spankin’ new! My high school teacher/coach husband and I gave up the ‘burbs 6 years ago to live and raise our family in a tiny town in Kansas. We love this life!
With my fourth pregnancy, I wrote a series called Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me? all about pregnancy, natural childbirth, and newborn care. Oh, the things we wish we knew the first time around!
Mommy, Come Home is a series I wrote in 2009. It’s my heart’s desire that any woman who wants to stay home and raise her children would be able to do so.
Finer Things Friday is a fun weekly link up where we share all the best things in life… that aren’t things! You should join us!
My recipe posts are some of my most popular. Seems we all like to eat! Here are a few favorites:
- Baked Beans with a Kick
- Brown Bag Burritos
- Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Rolls
- Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Pie
- Tortilla Roll-Ups
I’d love to share The Finer Things in Life with you more often! You can find me here:

Do not lay up for yourselves an earthly treasure… Make it your practice instead to store up heavenly treasure… Remember, where your treasure is, there your heart is also. Matthew 6:19-21
