Holiday Gift Ideas for Tweens & Teens
What seems like many moons ago, I used to post a "Hottest Toys of Christmas {Insert Year}" post annually here on the blog. It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Then, as my own kids got older and less "toy focused," I stopped doing that post because ...

Sometimes Motherhood
Motherhood used to sometimes be sleepless nights and baby snuggles. Sometimes, there were toddler tantrums and tickle monsters. Sometimes, sippy cups and potty training were of upmost concern. Sometimes, I miss those days that seem so long ago and, yet, jus...

I was in the kitchen getting ready to make supper on Sunday evening. The sink was full of dirty dishes, as usual, so I decided to unload the dishwasher and re-load it with the dirty plates, cups, and utensils before I began cooking. I opened the dishwasher ...

What's on the Menu? Food Frustration
Sometimes, I love food. A decadent piece of chocolate cake or a heart bowl of pasta; sinking my teeth into a juicy, perfectly seasoned burger or creamy cone of Cole dice cream on a hot summer day. Just this week, I had food from a restaurant I had never tri...

Long Days, Short Years
My alarm goes off at 5:30am. I hit snooze once (or maybe twice). Then, shower, get dressed, put on make-up. I head down the hall to turn off the alarm, feed the dog, and start the coffee. There must be coffee.  I make the rounds to wake up my girls. Sometim...

I'm sitting on the couch on my 41st birthday as I type this. It's raining and it has been a pretty ordinary day with little fanfare except for lunch with co-workers and lots of  "Happy Birthday" wishes. That's totally fine with me. I'm not very good at bein...

There Is No Such Thing as Perfection In Motherhood
When you are trying to "make it" as a blogger - whatever that may mean to you - one piece of advice you get repeatedly is something also referred to networking. Basically, you are supposed to read and comment on a bunch of other blogs so those bloggers will...
