Welcome! I’m Jade, the writer behind Jonesin’ For Taste. I’m a proud Polynesian and California-bred woman who loves sunshine and beaches.
In August of 2013 my husband left the Army and Georgia for his dream job- an all around terrific move for our family-back to sunny California and near our families for the first time in our married life. With the dream job came a HUGE pay cut in a drastically more expensive state. I’ve always planned on being a stay at home mom and we’ve always kept to a strict budget but with 2 cute (and rapidly growing kiddos) I needed to find a big way to cut back without sacrificing the important things- great food, family fun, and a pretty home!
So I share recipes for really great food, ideas for a beautiful home, and ways to have lots of fun as a family all on a tight budget!
Blogging full time is definitely a growing process as I try to balance my duties as a wife, mother, Mormon, consultant for Thirty-One, and now blogger. I have always had an interest in lots of different arenas and I don’t envision ever being able to commit to just one sphere.
I graduated with a BA in Economics and a lot of extra credits in coaching education and dance. I’m an athlete at heart but enjoyed pushing myself way, way, way out of my comfort zone and dancing with the International Folk Dancers at Brigham Young University. I still love to get my groove on with family dance parties and Zumba.
My wonderful kiddos make every day a joy AND a challenge. I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than cuddling with those two kiddos every day. We love being back in California and sharing with our kids some of the things we loved as kids.
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet. I hope you find yourself relaxing with a mug of hot chocolate (or whatever you may enjoy, I won’t judge) and enjoying perusing around for a bit.
