One of my guilty pleasures is cooking shows.
Although cooking is not my favorite thing to do, it turns out I’m a little bit of a foodie. I love trying new cuisine, pairing interesting food and wine, and fantasizing about going to dinner at Ina Garten’s house (see…Continue

Breast Feeding is not an easy feat and is definitely hard to get use to. There were so many times in the first month of Oliver's life that I wanted to quit breastfeeding. If it wasn't for my husband constantly helping me to not feel alone in the feeding process, I might have…Continue
We all know about those high priced bottles and cans of sweet tea you can buy in the store, but it's really not the same as drinking a nice fresh brewed glass at home. Not to mention that…Continue
A few weeks ago, I was perusing the Twitter world and stumbled upon an adoptive mother's profile. It read this:
“Hate my adopted kids. Please Help. Need hope.”
That was it. That was her profile. Out of all the things she could've said about herself, this was what she chose. Not that she's a coffee-drinker, that she loves yoga, that she has 3 kids and a collie. Not that she is an adoptive mom looking for other adoptive moms to connect with. Not…Continue
Kitchens and bathrooms do help sell houses, although they may not be the main deciding factor, they are strong contenders when buyers consider what property they will now call home.
Buyers consider these rooms when they are house hunting because of the difficulty of renovating them and the expense that would be required. If you have been diligent in the upkeep and upgrades of your home then this…

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…Continue

In college I had a roommate that was a history major. I have nothing against history. History is important; we learn from our past; it's good to remember where you've come from. However, her goal in life was to get a job working within airport administration. If you are wondering how a degree in history relates to that goal, then you are not alone.…

At a playdate with friends the other day one of the moms turned to me and asked what my secret was? For a moment I stood perplexed. Why whatever did she mean!? Did she want to know if I had found the fountain of youth? Did I really look that good? I just started using a new shampoo; maybe I was rocking a sweet do? I couldn’t help but smile as I inquired,” what secret?”.
“Your mood, what’s your secret? You always seem so happy, peppy, in such a great mood and…Continue

Depressed housewives. Bored housewife. Lonely housewife.
These are some of the top search matches for women who find my page and the things I am asked about most often. They are also the reason so many women feel helpless and hopeless when faced with the back-to-work or stay-at-home decision. For most, neither option presents as palatable, but it need not be this way. There are answers and solutions for depressed housewives, and for most of us, the solutions are closer than we think.…

I was on my way to pick up my husbands grandma and it hit. A full on panic attack. The panic was brought on by the realization that I almost lost my mother. My stomach churning, my heart racing, my throat feeling as if I swallowed a rock, and in my head visions of unspeakable…Continue

Where's my date night? I have seriously seen 4 couples who have stated they are going on date night or are in route to date night TONIGHT!!!!!!
Where the hell is mine?!?!?!! And where in the hell do people find the time for date night.
Aren't you spent by 5:30pm like me? Why haven't you misplaced your makeup and date night clothes as I have? What the heck is going on.
