I never really thought of being over 40 as an issue.
I've just been doing my thing for the past 20 years and haven't really noticed anything was different.
After college I married and had my career. Then came the kid thing. I gave up my career to be at home with my kids. Yes, I found small part time jobs and other methods of making money. Being home when my kids were home was my personal priority and something I've never regretted, even though I don't have the nicest car or… Continue

I have to tell you I LOVE CHRISTMAS. Yes don't laugh I know it is only November 10th but I am already in the mood! We went Christmas shopping yesterday and woke up to a light covering of snow on the ground-hey I have to contain myself not to start blaring the Christmas music!
My philosophy is to get a jump start early on the things I want to complete for the season. Then I will have more time during the actual holidays to spend time with family and friends and NOT be stressed… Continue

Nice picture huh? I know you all are jealous of how rocking Elle and I are in this pic from the late 70’s early 80’s! Let me first point out that Elle is the older one probably in her teens, and I, Stacy , am the younger one probably 4 or 5 years old. When I asked mum to email me a picture of us when we were younger, my youngest son saw it and I asked him who he thought was in the picture. And he said, “I don’t know, but that’s a funny looking boy right… Continue

Here’s a funny thing, when I worked I was more organized. I was a working Mom for over 6 years and have been a stay at home Mom for only 10 months. Now that I’m home and have more time I’m less organized and more last minute. It drives me nuts. When I worked I had no choice, I had to be organized or everything fell apart. Now, if I’m not organized I’ll just fix it tomorrow, ‘cause I’ll be here. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I’m not busy now, it’s just a less structured busy, so if I need… Continue

Today is the day that Michelle Obama gets to tour the White House for the first time.
This will become her home for the next 4, and possible 8, years.
In a bit more that 70 days, Michelle Obama will assume the role as first lady of the United States of America.
It has been a while since there has been a 'family' living in the white house.
Chelsea Clinton to be exact. Like Chelsea, the Obama girls, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, will grow up in the view of the public eye. How… Continue

I remember the day I became a mom as if it was yesterday.
I didn't know what to do, I was clueless and I couldn't understand how happy the baby is going to bring our small family.
The biggest tip I would wanna share with new mothers or new parents is to buy anything you can in advance and let the people who love you know you are gonna need their help and support.
My mom helped me the first weeks and it was a great time to bong with the family.
The new born got used to… Continue

The boy has been arrested and has not been charged as of yet.
According to CNN, the father who was shot and killed by his 8-year-old son had consulted a Catholic priest about whether the boy should have a gun and had taught him how to use firearms, according to the priest.… Continue

We're off to a friend's post-Halloween party tonite for a kid's birthday. My girls are probably not into wearing costumes again and we'll just wear festive colors. Its another dark dingey day on LI so hopefully we'll be indoors because I'm sure the yard will be muddy. Better remember to bring extra clothes and shoes.
I can't wait to hear tomorrow's phone conference call for salon owners using our system.
