Birthday Party Priorities

Birthday Party Priorities

I love birthdays but maybe, perhaps more than that, I love birthday parties. Before the second blue line was fully across the pregnancy test, I was planning my future party animal’s first birthday party.
The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

Last summer, I made the Boredom Boxes. You know, like the ones that made their rounds on Pinterest. I repinned them and actually made them. That makes about four pinned ideas that I have actually followed through with. Four, y’all! That’s a personal best for me.
Becoming a Health Nut: Emphasis on Nut

Becoming a Health Nut: Emphasis on Nut

Approximately twelve weeks ago, I made a resolution that I would be healthier in the New Year. I read that people who made small goals and worked to achieve those small goals were more successful at keeping their resolutions.
Sign Me Up: Imagining Momma Camp

Sign Me Up: Imagining Momma Camp

At Momma Camp, there would be no washing machines and there certainly would be no dryers. When we had dirty clothes, we would wad them up into balls and shove them in the corners of our suitcases. And, if we wanted to wear the same black yoga pants and gray Bon Jovi T-shirt every single day of camp, no one would judge us. In fact, we’d probably be complimented on our great fashion sense every morning when we strolled out of our cabins looking well-rested and refreshed.
Flying the nest: surviving spring break

Flying the nest: surviving spring break

If ya’ll will excuse me this month, I’m feeling very verklempt. My older daughter, my first born, my baby girl, is packing almost everything she owns in preparation for her week away (from me). This will be the first time that the child who made me a mother will be away from me for an extended period of time. Those two nights that her Nana kept her while my husband and I celebrated our anniversary at a bed and breakfast just two hours away don’t count.
A Grocery Store Score: A Mom's Dilemma

A Grocery Store Score: A Mom's Dilemma

I happened to run into a small neighborhood grocery store and discovered that they were having an awesome sale on ketchup. I nabbed 25—no, I’m not kidding—bottles of ketchup. I just knew that my daughters would be giddy at my grocery store score. Not so much...if my purchase was to be of benefit and not in vain, this would call for drastic measures.
In Celebration of the Second Semester

In Celebration of the Second Semester

I had stayed up way too late the night before and had to wake up way too early on this particular morning. But isn’t that always the case on the first day back to school from winter break?
A Picture Perfect Holiday Season

A Picture Perfect Holiday Season

Even before becoming a momma, I longed for the day that I would purchase matching—or at least coordinating—pajamas for my children. I had visions of sweet babies in their footed pajamas posed beside the lighted tree early in the morning, sleep still in their eyes, smiling serenely for the camera. Norman Rockwell couldn’t paint a more beautiful picture than I had developed in my mind’s eye. What I didn’t envision was the wide array of Christmas morning pictures I’d get without Christmas pajamas.
Taking "Me Time" Whenever I Can Find It

Taking "Me Time" Whenever I Can Find It

Finally. I am finally sitting down for the day. I’m snuggled up on my favorite seat. My contacts are out, and my glasses are on. My feet are pulled up beside me, and I’m sporting my favorite comfy pajamas. “Me Time” at its finest. Finally.
Don't Mess with the Corn Maze

Don't Mess with the Corn Maze

The crisp air and colorful leaves lulled me into thinking that the corn maze would be a good day-trip for our family. We can’t even walk through the Friday night buffet without loosing a kid or two; I’m not sure why I thought we could actually make it through a ten-acre corn maze.
