About

Thanks for stopping by Revisions of Grandeur. I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m Stacy. I live in Northern Michigan with my husband, three sons, and a goldendoodle who wasn’t supposed to shed.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and Health Education, and an MA in writing from Northern Michigan University in the rugged and gorgeous city of Marquette.

I’m an English teacher turned at-home, homeschooling mom. When I’m not moonlighting as a wrestling referee (Living Room Floor Federation), I enjoy writing non-fiction, primarily to-do lists and grocery lists.

  1. I found your blog while visiting Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns. After reading your ‘about’ page, I felt an immediate connection. As a former referee in my own Living Room Floor Federation, I managed to both survive and thrive while raising my three sons to the best of my ability so they could eventually leave the LRFF and go out on their own. While I have earned everyone of my grey hairs, I colour them with pride knowing that I raised three strong, independent, humanistic sons (please don’t tell them I said that). Looking forward to following your blog and your wrestlers in training!

  2. Love this…from one Michigan mom to another. (I’m down in Battle Creek, where the air sometimes smells like Fruit Loops. I’d live in the UP in a heartbeat, though, if my attorney husband didn’t always toss around excuses like “client base” and “mortgage payment.” Whatever.) I’m brand-new to Her View From Home, but I love your home view as presented on this about page. I’m a mom of 2 girls (current post-in-progress title: “Things It Is Safe to Say to Your Teenage Daughter”…it’s a very short post) but am still laughing over “wrestling referee (Living Room Floor Federation).” So glad to meet you!

    1. So excited to meet you, Elizabeth! Battle Creek where the air smells like Fruit Loops — ha! Love it. You should definitely work on your husband about moving to the UP, where the air smells like pasties and pierogis 😉 I look forward to checking out your work and connecting again soon. I’m glad to have another Michigan mom over at HVFH! Cheers, Stacy

  3. Hi Stacy! Thanks for following my Wanda, and giving me the opportunity to check out your blog. I am also from Michigan, but the southwest corner, north of South Bend. We locals refer to it as ‘Michiana.’ Isn’t that fancy? LOL! Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading your blog! 🙂
