Win 4 1-day admissions to the Academy of Natural Sciences and 4 tickets to see their Animal Grossology exhibit!
GROSS! I hear this phrase at least a dozen or more times for day. My girls are simultaneously amazed by nature and completely grossed out by nature. Whether it's the bug crawling on the driveway or the random animal poo at the park, there is something to learn, even in the disgusting stuff.

10 tips for Community Managers and Social Media Managers: http://bit.ly/1EA65Eh

#socialmedia #communitymanagers
Social media management is this thing I kind of fell into. Because back when I was in college, Facebook wasn't a thing. We were happy to rip songs off of Napster and have deep conversations over AIM. But in then past 10 years, the internet has become a new playing field for businesses, ...

Why moving can be bittersweet.
Last year around this time, I shared some BIG NEWS: That we were moving! Well, now that our lease is up and some of our plans have firmed up, we will be on the road again moving to our Forever Home. That's right: in 3 weeks we will be buying a house. And not just any house.

What are YOUR thoughts on school testing?

Here is my 2 cents on testing, GPA, education and sucking the marrow out of life: http://bit.ly/1Ho15Yg.

#education   #standardizedtesting   #optout  
There has been a thought keeping me up at night. A gnawing feeling, set deep, tickling the recesses of my brain. This thought bubbles up at random times throughout the day, stopping me in my tracks, filling me with a sinking dread. I try to push the thought to the back of my mind, ...

We've made this several times already - and I tried it with Broccoli and Cheddar filling last night. 

SO yummy and easy:

#Recipe  
I've got an easy dinner recipe for you! The other day I was planning meals for the week, and I mentioned to Hubby that I was thinking of doing my usual Grilled Pizza. He was up for it but seemed underwhelmed. So I took that as a challenge to think out of the box with the ingredients I had on ...

I have TWO great giveaways coming up! 

First: win a Redpack Tomatoes Gift Pack on the blog!
I am loving June. School is almost out, which means Hubby and the girls will be home for the summer. The days are longer. The air is warmer. We're grilling more, we're swimming more and garden-fresh food is abounding. Unfortunately, I have been blessed with a Black Thumb.

FLASH #GIVEAWAY ALERT!

Locals: In celebration of the new, limited-time Limoncello product line at +GIANT Food Stores ,  I'm giving away a $25 Giant gift card!

Enter now through Friday at noon: http://bit.ly/1JzPmY9.
I take pride in my Italian heritage. I've painstakingly perfected my homemade "gravy." I speak loudly in normal, everyday conversation. I make Pizzelles at every opportunity. I get tan within 5 minutes of stepping outside. It's just what Italians do. So when I heard that Giant (my beloved ...

I fall into a minority of not being the biggest fan of #disney .

I struggle with this love/hate relationship. 

Does anyone else?
Disney. It's this thing. Like the way diseases are epidemics. We live in an age where Disney is not just a brand. It's a way of living. It's not just a family trip you make at some point in your childhood. It's an experience. And, in the minds of many, a non-negotiable one at that.

I'm not a big fan either. As a family of 7, we could never afford to go. I also don't see the value in spending so much money which could go into my children's college funds, our retirement account, or help us pay off car loans.

In response to the Gwyneth Paltrow/SNAP discussion from earlier, I wanted to share my thoughts on the topic.

In short: It's complicated.

Read more here: http://www.moderndaydonnareed.com/2015/04/oh-snap-struggle-of-celebrity-influence.html.

#SNAP  
Our controversial celebrity friend, Gwynth Paltrow, is feeling the heat again. This time, it is because she took on Mario Batali's Food Bank challenge, where she lived off of $31/week to help bring awareness to the struggle (and limitations) of those using SNAP. Let me back up and explain SNAP.

I just don't get it.

The #fiftyshadesofgrey   hype.

But if you are into it - please share your thoughts.
I don't get it. The whole Fifty Shades of Grey hype. I just don't get it. Let me start at the beginning. I remember back to when the books first came out. Right on the tails of the Twilight series, I was intrigued by yet another love saga. (I am easily suckered into a good love story, ...

Story
Tagline
A pee a little every time I laugh or sneeze. I also have a dangerous relationship with ice cream.
Introduction

One day when Steph leaves this world, she will be known for many things: Imperfect mother. English teacher's wife. Baking a wicked apple crisp. Shopping yet remaining unfashionable. Struggling to discern the line between reality and fantasy on TV shows. Passionately eating ice cream. Peeing a little every time she sneezes or laughs. Deep thoughts. Laughable housekeeping. Secretly crushing on MacGyver. And being a world-class blogger. Join her as she adventures through blogging, life, marriage, cooking, parenting and bringing sexy back, but not necessarily in that order. You can find her at Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Stephanie loves community.  When she started blogging over 3 years ago, it was Steph's intent to reach out to any and every mother of the world, so they would know they were not alone on this journey called Motherhood. Since then, she has successfully (and somewhat humorously) redefined The Modern Day Donna Reed. Her blog has gained a faithful readership who explores parenthood, cooking, learning, growing, watching great TV shows and unabashedly loving the 90's.  The Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom blog has a lively and growing Facebook Page where there is a constant chatter.

Steph is passionate about things she loves, and is influential when sharing about something she believes in. She is the social media director/blogger for her local farmer's market, West Chester Growers Market, and is a regular contributor to thePhilly Burb Moms sites and MetroKids magazine, as well as the Philadelphia City Manager for SavvySource..  Steph is also an active member of Philly Social Media Moms.

I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls, the wife of a dashingly handsome english teacher, and I blog. I also may have showered today.
