Oh man. I was so excited putting this together. I was first inspired by my amazing friend, Valerie, who posted a before-I-turn-thirty bucket list to Facebook not too long ago. Valerie is the epitome of a supermom. She works, she cooks, she reads, and she runs, with her two boys strapped in a double-jogging stroller… Continue reading The bucket list
So…this picture annoys the crap out of me. I get it. The intended message here is something along the lines of “it’s okay, mama, stop freaking out about cleaning up and have fun with your kids.” Totally understandable. But like everything else on the freaking internet right now, it’s completely unfair to one side of… Continue reading Shout-out to the neat freaks!
My first Thanksgiving away from retail! And what to do with the time…it’s been a busy few days 🙂 xoxo
I have a favor to ask of you guys. I am totally not turning this blog into a ploy for advertising dollars (and I am 100% committed to that). I am however, also committed to getting my holiday shopping, even for charity, done before December, so our kiddos can see Christmas and the holidays… Continue reading Black Friday for a good cause
If you’re reading this, I’m assuming you’ve read part 1 in this series, and that you aren’t too freaked out to continue reading. Yay for you! Thanks for sticking with me. I love this story.

In fact, I even remember overhearing a conversation in a pediatrician’s waiting room, when one woman told another that she homeschooled, and the other woman responded, “that sounds great, except for the part about… Continue reading Our path to home learning
In the dim light of my pantry, pine nuts look a lot like basmati rice. Either that, or I do a really shoddy job of verifying what we need before sending my hubs to the grocery store each week. (He’d tell you the latter is true.) So tonight’s plan for peppers, broccoli, and carrot stir… Continue reading Eating well and giving back
It’s that time again. I am so blessed by my amazing friends. And this time, it’s the anniversary edition. Yep- the hubs and I are celebrating our matrimonial bliss with a little trip abroad (mainly to see some sweet friends and celebrate with them, but also to do our thang), and we were able to… Continue reading Shout out!
There is something seriously awesome about having good friends. Friending isn’t always easy when we’re busy and taking care of kids and jobs and whatever grownup stuff we have on our plates. So I want to give a shout-out to three of my girlfriends, who, by doing something little and thoughtful, actually did something big… Continue reading Shout out!
