Meet Rhonda

Hi! My name is Rhonda, and I am the owner and editor for MomSkoop.

I am an Ohio native who now calls Indiana home, hence the name Transplanted Buckeye Media. As a mom to two girls and a husband who prefers home cooked meals, I love creating unique lunch ideas, baking simple treats, creating new recipes and recreating fond childhood memories of home cooked meals that I would have at my grandma’s house. My other hobbies include genealogy, photography, traveling, finding creative solutions to make life easier, and of course, shopping.
 
When my youngest was born, due to her having a few health concerns, we spent a lot of time at home.  So, I started doing a lot of reading when she was napping.  I figured I could share my love for books by writing reviews.  Then it turned into posts about how to live frugally since we were a one income family.  After a few years of that blog being a hobby, I decided to move from a free blogger account to an actual site.  When I was trying to create a new name for that site, we decided “Mommy’s Gone Shopping Again” would be perfect due to my love of shopping.  Which speaking of shopping, my own personal “best” shopping record in one day is 8 hours!  That’s why I often say that if shopping was an Olympic sport, I would definitely medal!
 
One little unknown fact about me is that I was the Co-Editor of our high school newspaper.  My “dream” back then was to be a journalist.  However, plans have a way of changing and I made the decision to end that dream and become an Executive Assistant.  So, in college, instead of pursuing journalism, I was pursuing how to correctly stage a letter.
