What to Expect When You’re Expecting (a lululemon Warehouse Sale)

I am a veteran of the lululemon warehouse sales – meaning I have the firsthand shopper’s experience of what goes on inside and a general idea of what to expect.

To Tablet, or Not to Tablet

I have a confession to make, and it’s not a popular one. I purchased two tablets for my daughters this Christmas.

Let me guess, you’ve recently read a story FROM A REPUTABLE NEWS SOURCE about the direct correlation between a [Read On]


Feel Good Chicken Noodle Soup

When you become a wife and mother, the only real thing you need to know during flu season is how to brew an especially good and hearty Chicken Noodle Soup. And no, a can of Campbell’s Chicken Soup is not going to cut it. Believe me, I’ve tried. Like most of my recipes, I’ve tinkered [Read On]

Make Your Own {Organic} Fruit Roll-Ups

It seems the food industry is trying to kill us very slowly or at the very least increase our chances of getting cancer. Every where you look, the processed foods we buy in the grocery stores have chemically altered ingredients and “natural flavoring” – especially in the snacks we feed our children. Have you stopped [Read On]

Apple Pie

Impress Your In-Laws with Apple Pie

Pies, especially in this family, are a Thanksgiving Day staple. Everyone brings at least one with them when we gather for our meal – and to be honest, I AM guilty of passing off a pie procured locally as my own instead of baking one. It was just once. Maybe twice. BUT NO MORE THAN [Read On]


Two coffees to go, please

Rob is always pestering me about a family and household budget. And, more often than not, I go about my business ignoring him – not because I am trying to disrespect him, but because I like things. I like to buy things. I like to have things around me. Me + things = peace. Just [Read On]

Fashion Friday: Hippy Chic

If I had to choose one word to describe my style it would “hippy”. I love flowly, sheer tops and dark flared jeans. One of the pieces I really liked in this set was the body suit. Do you remember them? And when they went out of style? Peace and Love by grace-anderson featuring tailored [Read On]

Fashion Friday: Twilight Premiere Copies

The cheating headlines aside, the outfits Kristen Stewart wore at the Hollywood and UK premiere’s of Breaking Dawn Part 2 were scandalous. And, if you ask me, pretty tasteless.

Dark Circle Corrector

I am 30. 30. Well, technically almost 31. 31. I just let out a big sigh. Age is creeping up on me. I see it in the small lines around my eyes and miniscule creases on my forehead. But the thing I suffer from the most is dark circles under my eyes and the accompanying [Read On]
