I Think It’s Already Started… American Girl

Tweet My thought is that it’s inevitable. At some point most little girls develop this love for a baby doll. My daughter is no different. She is absolutely over the moon about her “baby”. She won’t give “baby” a name. I suggested naming here Jasmine. She looked at me and said, “no, BABY”. Her little…

Getting Dirty in the Desert!

Tweet Annnd we’re back! What a weekend! Not only was it the 4th of July but yesterday was our daughters 2nd birthday! Our family had a little getaway to Palm Springs.We packed a lot of fun into our weekend. Our first day in town was spent testing our fear of heights. We rode a tram…

What I’m Feeling Friday – Let’s Dance!

Tweet I have this relationship with music. I always have. I love it! I listen to every note, every background vocal, every instrument. When I hear something I like, you can be sure that I’m listening to it over and over again! I have been sharing my love of music with my kids. From jazz…

Mirror, Mirror

Tweet I wish someone had told me how much I’d learn from my kids. Then again, maybe not. I’m enjoying the surprise of my babies being my teachers. I have found that I have learned more about me from being a wife and a mother. I’ve learned my good and my bad. It’s like having…

Tweet I am tired. That about sums up how I feel after this weekend. It was a pretty laid back weekend, I guess. There wasn’t a whole lot of our usual shenanigans. We’re typically running around like crazy people finding fun stuff to do in and around L.A. Most of this weekend was spent doing…

If I Needed A Reason to Be Inspired…

Tweet This was not a normal weekend. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I had a million things to do. I had meetings and events to attend. I was swamped with things to get done. All of my things to do and meetings to attend absolutely paled in comparison to what as happening at…

Simple Rules for the Sick – ies

Tweet I am sick. I have the cooties. It sucks.  This stoopid, yes stoopid cold virus is going around my family and it finally took me down. I feel like crud. It really kicks in how good it is to feel well when I’m sick. I’m so looking forward to this cold moving it’s way…

The School Blues

Tweet Just over four years ago, I gave birth to my first child. Recently, I toured yet another school that could be his elementary school. As I walked around the campus, I was a little bit overwhelmed. So much so that I didn’t take pictures. That’s saying a lot. As a blogger, I take pictures…

I think they’re listening

Tweet We went out to lunch this past weekend. After sitting my daughter in her high chair, she picked up a napkin and attempted to tuck it into her shirt – making herself a bib. We looked at each other and said maybe we eat out too much. This kid is not new to this….
