No, You Don’t Know What’s In Your Household Products

Early exposure to toxic chemicals may lead to cancer and alzheimer's

I’ll admit that I don’t use the majority of traditional cleaning products, at least not in my home. I tend to use more natural products and the “make yourself at home” options instead. While I’d like to say I started doing it because I was enlightened and realized how little testing there was of the […]

26.2 Miles Or Not, My Life Is A Marathon

It may not be the Boston Marathon, but my daily life is its own version. The perfect fuel for me? Stonyfield Greek Yogurt

My husband arrived home just a bit ago. He looked around the house, saw the wee ones both playing on their Kindles and me sitting on the couch with my eyes closed. “Soooooo,” he asked. “What did you do today?” I could hear the slight judging in his voice. He could see that the coffee table […]

Can You At Least Say Excuse Me?

Parenting challenges: When they enter the burping stage

When the wee ones were little, and I mean infants since I suppose at 8 and 10, one day I’ll look back and think that they were little at this stage, getting them to burp was hard. I could see in their little faces that they would need to, and Little Miss in particular would […]

Just A Little Disney Social Media Moms Magic

Disney Social Media Moms recap

A week ago, I was in California with pixie dust flying all over the place. I was invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration this year where I paid my own conference fees and received gifts during the conference. (All opinions, experiences and thoughts are my own.) We had never been to Disneyland […]

Herbed French Potato Salad

Easy recipe for herbed French potato salad with no mayonnaise - gluten free and vegan

Once again, our PTO offered up dinner for the teachers at our school during conferences – since they’re there from 8am until well after 9pm on these nights with little to no break, it’s the least we can do for them. In addition to the Mexican themed night where I made my Mexican sheetcake brownies and […]

Top 5 Reasons My Child Is Crying

Top 5 Reasons my 8 year old daughter is crying

Little Miss is 8 years old, but I swear sometimes that she is a teenager. It isn’t because she has a teenager’s attitude or thinks she knows everything, but I swear she has hormones rocketing through her system. So when she picked up the book Reasons My Kid Is Crying by Greg Pembroke and started […]

Thanks For Not Making Me Argue

Strict rules to buy in district pool passes

The town I live in tends to be… a little full of itself. While the people themselves are sweet and it’s often somewhat like Mayberry, the town government side is just a tad different. They’re insular and want to keep every perceived benefit to themselves. If you’re outside their boundaries, they will stick it to […]

Homemade Roasted Garlic Bread

Homemade roasted garlic bread recipe

Garlic bread is one of my guilty pleasures. It has so many of my favorite things all in one place: it’s crunchy and chewy. It’s salty and cheesy, with a hint of sweet. And of course it’s full of carbs. Once I discovered – years ago – how easy it is to make garlic bread, […]

Living The Good Life With The Best Dry Cat Food

Enjoying the good life of a spoiled cat

We have two amazing cats, Meow and Roar, and it’s possible they’re just a little bit spoiled. The wee ones absolutely adore them – and so do I. It’s possible that we fight over whose bed they get to sleep in each night (although they solve that by choosing their own beds and rooms), and […]

Disney Magic At Play Clothing Arrives At Kohls + $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Little Miss modeling Jumping Beans Disney items at Kohls

I am headed out to Disneyland for the Disney Social Media Moms conference in two days. We are all looking forward to it (except my poor husband who has to stay home and work), and the wee ones immediately ran to their closets to plan Disney outfits once they learned we were going. Lucky for […]
