Since I have been out of town for a bit, I have spent this week catching up on my Google Reader. I have read a lot of blogs that are participating on the 5 for 10 meme hosted by the crew at Momalom. One of the most fun series of blogs has been about… Continue

I know people think of me as “crunchy,” but I’ve never really been into that label, or any others for that matter. But as soon as you say you make homemade granola, it seems everyone pictures you barefoot running around at the park with flowers in your hair (which actually sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?).
Seriously though. When you taste homemade granola, you suddenly know why people make it at home. It’s sooooooo good. Filling, hearty,… Continue

On the hottest day of the summer thus far, with fires raging a few
miles away, the sky is raining soot. Since we are nearing the end of
the summer, and I have been in lock down with Thing One and Thing Two,
while trying to work in my cave of privacy, it seems we are all… Continue

As moms, I am sure most of us have to learn baking cakes, whether it is for a school event, a simple fundraiser or Bake Sale, or something elaborate like a Birthday Cake! And more often than not, baking a cake is easy, thanks to tonnes of cake recipes floating around in the internet, but it is the Frosting part which leaves many of us intimidated. However, help is just a small click away! No matter… Continue

Most of you probably already know this, but for those rare few who, like me, didn’t know, here’s some information. Many bloggers out there want to make money. I know I do. I like to write so I thought I might be able to make a little change through writing. The problem is that now I want to get paid. Don’t we all? Yeah, really. There are many mom bloggers who will tell you not to work for free. So I get it. But how do you get paid by a reputable company? Well, you get a federal tax id… Continue

I usually do not tackle giveaways, but Baby Magic provided a great set of products to help treat diaper rash and I had to share!
Included in the giveaway is their new Pattycake Powder, a talc-free, dustless powder that worked with no mess.…

So I’ve been eating healthy for over a week. I hesitate to label what I’m doing for fear of messing it up but I will call it the semi vegan vegetarian raw food diet. There, that’s a nice name, isn’t it? What I’m doing is avoiding meat of all kinds: chicken, beef, lamb, fish, etc. I’m also TRYING to avoid refined sugar and diet sugars. I try to use Stevia, turbinado, agave,… Continue

With the school year winding down and summer just around the corner, many kids may think it’s time to turn off their brain. Parents, you know that there is a certain amount of “brain drain” that tends to happen during the summer when kids are not in school everyday. To help prevent this, summer is a great time to focus on learning skills and knowledge “outside the box” of the usual worksheets and homework. We all know… Continue

In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works, in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Titus 2:2-5

SAMPLE. Size 0 to infinite...your a perfectly good fit. A top model of

Above all, be clothed in LOVE, which binds everything in perfect
harmony...the inner… Continue

When I was growing up, my Dad had a rule in our house, when you move away after college; you have to live outside a 500-mile radius of home. OK…don’t ask, but I will say
that when I eventually did move away from home, I did manage to move just
outside the 500-mile radius. The
funny thing was, as soon as I did, Daddy asked me when I was going to move
home. So much for house rules.

Thankful for my newest babe. For the precious toes and fingers. For the growth that takes place right before your eyes. For the sleep you steal in between wakings. For another’s breath beside you. For one of the most intimate relationships any person can ever think to have.

The teenage years suck!
When I was pregnant some 17 years ago, no one ever thought to perhaps warn me, that the cute little baby boy I was going to have, would grow up to be so....what's the word.......hard headed, annoying, stubborn,etc.
My day started waking up at the crack of dawn to take my 16 yr old to court (more on that in a second). It was IMPERATIVE (according to my sons attorney) that we be there on time. Okay, got it, do not be late.
So everyone wakes… Continue
