Where are my reality cameras?

Tweet Is it crazy that I want to be in a reality show? Not one for television. I just want to have one for my own personal use. Here’s the reason. I feel like it’s hitting me more and more that my babies are growing up  way too fast. I don’t want to forget a…

Donatello + Elsa were here

Tweet Elsa and Donatello made their way to our house for Halloween. My kids were super excited about Halloween this year. For my son, it’s all they’d been talking about at school. He comes home every day with new Spanish words for things related to Halloween. He was ready. My daughter feeds off her brother’s…

When Your Fish Comes From the Carnival…

Tweet It all started so simple. As a family, we have to do 15 service hours with my sons school. There are many opportunities to volunteer and fulfill those hours. My husband volunteered a few weeks ago when they had food truck night. This weekend was my turn. I volunteered to help out with the…

Potty Training Journey : Numero Dos

Tweet It’s a milestone that I look forward to and at the same time, it stresses me out. Potty training.  My son is almost five years old so, of course, I’ve been down this road before. The problem is, I don’t remember a whole lot about it. Did I just block it out? Maybe. LOL!…

Things I want to Learn

Tweet Do you have a list? I have a list of 40 things I want to do before I turn the big FOUR OH. I’ve been slowly checking things off the list. I still have lots to do though. Oh well, I still have a couple years to pull this off! Mostly  my list is…

Happy New Year – to ME!

Tweet Today, I’m feeling reflective. I’m taking stock of my life and where things are headed. Today is my birthday, my Happy New Year! So instead of being all introspective come January 1st, I decided to start early. This last year has been quite a crazy one for me. The biggest thing had to be…

What I’m Feeling Friday… Vans

Tweet I’ve noticed a disturbing trend. When I post something I like on this site, I end up buying it. That’s the exact opposite of my whole “minimalism, get rid of stuff” mantra. My solution is I’m going through my closet to actually let go of some items. I have already gone through the kids…

Full Circle Moment : On the way to my dreams

Tweet This weekend, I met up with a friend. We worked at the Style Network together. We used to always talk about what we really wanted to do. I’d encourage her to go for her dreams and she’d do the same for me. It was in talking to her and other people in the office…

No Pics Leaked Here

Tweet For the last few weeks, I’ve been reading and hearing all about nude pictures leaking of lots of celebrities. Seems like everyone has jumped on the sexting train. Not I. No pics leaked here. I could just be a granny about it all but I think about where that picture would go as it…

Memories – We Made ‘Em

Tweet When people say that moms need a break, believe it! When people tell you that you should get away, do it! I’m back from a much needed retreat! I think that’s what I want to call it anyway, a retreat. Two of my girlfriends and I decided to treat ourselves to an overnight trip….
