31 for 31
Happy Monday! I turned 31 on Friday. Please don't sing "Happy Birthday." The only reason I don't post my birthday on Facebook is because I avoid that song like the plague. I hate it. HATE IT. Have you ever noticed the more people involved in singing it, the...

First off, this is not intended to you, probably. You probably stumbled onto this page via a pin on Pinterest and are looking for a sure-fire way to cut down that invite list. Let's be honest, at $80-$200 a plate, you end up categorizing your friends and ...

Happy New Year!
From the Self-Evident Supermom household to yours, have a very happy new year! It's as if she's mocking me, saying, "Oh, you fool, you think 2 is bad? Wait." This year will bring a new job (surprise, surprise!), a new schedule for both me and L., the dreade...

Christmas Eve thoughts
Right now, I'm currently without my daughter on Christmas Eve. It's sad. I don't have cookies and milk out, although I know Santa will come. (The photo shown at the right was taken a few weeks ago.)  Our Elf, Banjo, has already flown back to the North Pole ...
