Tips For Getting Girls Into Sports

Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …

How To Help A Friend Who Is an Addict

One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…

Back to School Thoughts from a 2017 Mama

Tomorrow is the first day of school and we’re mostly ready. We fought the crowds to buy the school supplies and we got the haircut and we met the teacher and we picked out the favorite shirt. We’ll take the traditional first day photo in the morning and fourth grade will have officially arrived. And […]

What’s in my Camera Bag? Travel + Everyday Gear

Believe it or not, I once resisted photography.  In the early days of this blog I would post grainy, pre-iPhone cell phone photos and even relied on a disposable camera when I traveled to West Point for my brother’s graduation in 2005. A disposable camera… I knew I needed to upgrade, but it all seemed […]

ATM Cave: The Mayan Underworld

This story is part of a series from our recent travels to Belize. Click here to start at the beginning. You know it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when I agree to go on a trip that doesn’t allow cameras of any kind. Yes, it’s true. Turns out one too many careless tourists dropping cameras and lenses […]

Put “Snorkel and Chill in Belize” on Your List

This story is part of a series from our recent travels to Belize. Click here to start at the beginning. We wanted the full Belize experience. All five senses. We were willing to wake up early and get off the beaten path and push the boundaries of our comfort zone. And the day we spent […]

Exploring Xunantunich

This story is part of a series from our recent travels to Belize. Click here to start at the beginning. Before we left, I kept telling people we were going “to the beach”. I have no idea why. Belize is so much more than the beach. It is jungle and mountains and barrier reef and […]

Running Mommies

Mommies who love to run, workout, talk fitness tips, and share healthy recipes. I'm an ex-collegiate track athlete that can share the tips I've learned along the way, while also being a SAHM to a toddler that also struggles to get my workouts in.

What are you getting for Mother's Day?

Are you looking to get something sparkly? Or breakfast in bed? Maybe just a sweet hug and kiss? What's your perfect Mother's Day gift?

Can you be addicted to technology? To social media?

New blog post: You say addiction, I say connection I'm anxious to hear what other bloggers have to say -- can you be addicted to your computer? iPhone? Facebook/Twitter?See More

You say addiction, I say connection

I have no idea the extent to which digital and social media will affect us all long term. But I am absolutely certain it has changed society forever. It's changed the way we communicate. It's changed the way we get information. I think it's even warped our concept of time. Anymore, if it isn't instant - it's slow. And slow is unacceptable.When I think of the number of people I am able to connect with through Facebook on a daily basis that I would otherwise not talk to for months or years at a…See More

Profile Information

What is your blog URL?

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
My name is Sarah. I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas with my hubby Jeff and son Colt. I work in advertising but my heart is at home with the fam. The (other) loves of my life are photography/scrapbooking, peanut butter, organizing, and going to movies by myself.
What is your blogging philosophy?
In all honesty, I first began to blog in order to keep up with my globetrotting family. We could post stories and pictures, and keep in touch in a whole new way. If you were to read through my archives you would discover that the “topic” of my writing has changed several times since I started blogging in March 2005. I have evolved from ‘College STUDENT/Waitress/Bartender Hoping and Dreaming for a “Real” Job upon Graduation’ to ‘College GRADUATE/Waitress/Bartender Hoping and Dreaming for a “Real” Job now that I’ve Graduated’ to ‘College Grad and Young Professional Starting my New Career in the Real World’ to ‘Newlywed Learning to Accept (and Love) Things Like Beer in my Fridge and (Seemingly) Round the Clock SportsCenter’ to ‘First Time Mama to the Most Beautiful Little Bundle of Photogenic Cuteness‘. Through it all, there are traces of sarcastic humor, (over)dramatic ranting, and an unhealthy obsession with righting the world’s grammatical errors – though I most commonly describe the content here as fun and harmless nonsense.
I have been blogging since...
March 2005

Here's the thing. I love The Today Show. LOVE. My day doesn't really start until I have a little Matt, Meredith, Al and Ann. The show is truly a staple for me, but I find myself increasingly irritated by its schizophrenia.

 

Honestly, I mean where else can I start my day with Ann Curry's updates…

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. I just love this site. The women are so embracing and I hope you are enjoying your experience as much as I.
