When Ryan and I first announced we were getting married, we had mixed emotions coming at us from all sides. Some thought we were much too young, others thought we were only doing it because we were pregnant. We had one person tell us that the first five years are the most difficult of your marriage because during those five years, you start really getting to know how a person is. And throwing kids in there really shakes that up even more. So when he… Continue

Two years ago if you would have asked me how life was, I would have probably said, its fine. And it was. I was happy with my job, the kids were both young and we were a pretty normal, happy family. I was pregnant two years ago. Not carrying my third child. But carrying the life for someone who physically was unable. The journey was going smoothly. There were times I was sad that they were unable, due to distance and time, to come to any dr appts. I had not grown close to the pregnancy like so… Continue

With the weather slowly changing here in Arizona I am starting to get in the "Fall" frame of mind. Although it is still getting up to a 100 degrees on some days the desire to put together some fall inspired outfits is eating at me. You can only wear tank tops and shorts for so long!!
Along with the vintage look I wanted to add some colors that pop and work well with layers. That was the inspiration for the red polka-dot dress with black flowered trim.
Although it is still… Continue

I don't think that this post will be long because there's really not much I want to say about it, but that could change if I start getting fired up talking about it.
The Justice of the Peace in LA has every right to feel how he feels even though he's ignorant for doing what he did. It was a violation of those peoples civil rights and he should of known better. But that's the issue right. Racist people don't seem to know better. They spew ignorance from every orifice of their bodies… Continue

I took a walk in the woods on Saturday. All by myself. This may not sound like a big deal to some, but I’m—er, over 40 and have never taken a walk in the woods by myself before. As a family, we’ve done plenty of hiking all around the beautiful state of Michigan, as well as in several other states and countries. But on this particular day, my husband was out of town for work, and my kids were busy with their activities.
As I drove my son to… Continue

4-month Dietoversary picture:
It appears that I'm going to need new work-out clothes. I had purchased Danskin capris and shorts from Walmart, but now they are sliding off my rear and hips as I work-out. Kind-of poses an issue when your pants are falling, and you have to stop working-out to pull them up, or they're being held up by the leg-strap on the EAS Active. Heh.…

I watched Dr. Phil the other day and this was his topic! Wow!
I couldn't believe how strongly against working moms, some of the stay at home moms were. Well, probably just one in particular. She shared that staying at home was the 'be all' for moms, and anyone who chose any differently should be ashamed!
Now, I love my children (4 natural and 2 stepsons), but I distinctly remember when my oldest ones were 4 1/2 and 6 mths old my thoughts and… Continue

We are right in the middle of potty training and I was JUST thinking the other day how gross it is that the boy is always touching all over the potty to lift up the toilet seat. So when I got the opportunity to review the Shandle (toilet seat handle) I thought, "What a neat and functional idea!" Not only does it prevent "Easy" from touching the toilet seat, but its also a cute constant reminder to wash his hands! Love it! These even make great gifts! Here's what the website says about the… Continue

Today, I found myself pondering again what I have thought about a few times since Landon was born: do I want another child? Landon was only months old when family members and friends started to ask about the second child, and a lot of my mom friends seem to be having the second child now or are pregnant or working towards it. Not us. Thankfully, I don’t have a huge urge to have another one, although I loved being pregnant and had such a wonderful drug-free birth experience. I say thankfully… Continue

So I just caught this story from the news the other day and it has been festering in my head since then. This little six year old boy brings his cub scouts knife, spoon and fork combo deal to school to use it for lunch because it is probably the coolest trinket that he thinks he has because it is a combo of a spoon and fork and the school decides that he has to go to a school for troubled kids as his punishment!! This poor kid is in cub scouts, I am willing to bet that if cub scouts are willing… Continue

Today there are so many things that can make life a little tricky and add stress to the daily grind. Sometimes you just need to let it out in order to move forward. It can be hard to find a place to do that without someone there to tell you how wrong you are to feel that way.
I started a group so that we can all have a safe place to let our feelings, good or bad, out without that fear. We all need to get things off of our chest sometimes.
I hope that everyone who wants to have a… Continue

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade ... or use them to polish chrome, get rid of bad cat litter box odor, deodorize your garbage disposal and more! Here are some unusual uses of lemons around the house:
The science behind these ingenious household uses of lemon is citric acid: a natural, organic acid that is present in concentrations as high as 8% in some varieties of lemon.
