While buying school supplies, the quantity purchased do matter a lot. In case if you are buying school supplies in smaller amount, you would not probably notice the price. However, the situation may change if you are trying to purchase the entire list of school supplies for your child's school. Moreover, when school starts and you have no low-priced school supplies available and just expensive substitutes are available, then you would definitely have to pay a lot for school supplies. Let us…Continue

So, where did I leave off...Right, I had just been told by a doctor, I did not really know, that my condition, Endometriosis, had gotten very out of control. And that my husband, of four months, and I should start trying for kids right away. Can you say terrifying!
This is a huge decision in a persons life. Even though we had been together for 6 years at this point, we had only been living together alone for about 8 months. We were still getting to know each other in that sense. Likes…Continue

If you read the blogging better series, you know that I am a H-U-G-E advocate of using social media to market your blog. I talk a lot about Facebook and Twitter, but it kind of begs the question: what about Instagram?
The truth about Instagram is that it is one of the fastest growing forms of…Continue

I don’t know about your kiddos, but my toddler loves to create art. Between all of the pieces he brings home from school and his amazing little weekend creations, sometimes I feel like we have toddler art coming out of our ears. But toddler artwork is adorable, so I really don’t mind.
Now, there’s only so many paintings that fit on our fridge – and on the walls of his playroom – before we run out of room. So we’ve had to learn to be selective when it comes to what we keep. I don’t…Continue

Like a lot of parents, I often think about the nature/nurture influences on my son. In addition to his daddy's captivating eyes will he inherit a love of playing music, too? My little guy has already showed some proficiency at telling stories like his Mom, but will that skill…Continue

May wouldn’t have happened, I would be holding a just born baby girl in my arms right now.
My c-section was scheduled for 9:30 this morning. As of last night, it was still scheduled – the hospital called to confirm that I would be there by 7 am. Seriously.
Since we lost her, I’ve had this tendency to make the day before a big post-stillbirth milestone much more emotional than the actual day is. So…Continue

My husband and I were friends for years before we became a couple. All those years of friendship added up to lots of funny stories about mutual friends and was a great way to determine how compatible we are. Since the time of our transition from buddies to spouses, we've had relatively few arguments. Sure there are areas where we don't always see eye-to-eye, but overall, we are on the same page.…Continue

When Joshua was between three and five months old, I was walking out of Panera with my Frozen Mocha in one hand, and lugging Joshua in his carrier in the other. I was admiring the energy of a little boy that appeared…Continue

There were a lot of considerations that went into trying to find the right name for our son. We wanted something unique, but not crazy. Something that was meaningful to us, but wouldn't set him up for a lifetime of trying to explain his name to others.…Continue

For Christmas, my parents got us a GoPro camera. I’ve been meaning to use it a million times since then, but it took me a while to get all of the needed accessories and figure out how to actually use it. I’m guessing that the intent was for us to use it with the little guy. But for my first “real” video, I’m giving all of you mommies something a little different: a quick makeup tutorial. I get lots of messages from ya’ll saying you don’t have time for make up or that you don’t know how to…Continue
I wanted to share something that is a very personal struggle and this is something not tons of people know about me. It is kind of in-depth so I am going to break it up over a couple posts. I don't want to bore you to tears :). This is not meant to be a depressing post in fact I hope it will help some people, people I know even, who have or are currently going through this.
Here is my story from the start. When I was 14 years old I went into my OBGYN's office because of pain. That’s…Continue

I’ve been worrying a lot about failure and people’s opinion lately. I think we all do it when faced with a daunting challenge. The prospect of failing is pretty gut wrenching. It will make you hesitate. And then the hesitation will make you second-guess your strengths.
