I have discovered that being the type of woman who can Do It All leads to Not Doing It At All. At least for me.
I'm a stay-at-home-mom of many small children who has done smidges of freelance work in the past. But I recently took on a large freelance project that has pretty much taken over all my spare time, and then some. Now, I'm squeezing in work all day long in between the home and childcare duties.
My husband hasn't changed his schedule. So when he gets home… Continue

I have grown up with computers, in fact i don't think i have ever not had a computer, my dad is an I.T manager and has always had his head in computer stuff etc. I used to go with him to work on Saturdays and watch him scurry around the drawing office fiddling with wires, loading things and wrestling with servers and printers. My love of computers started when i was little, writing stories and doing pictures on good old paint! His love of all this computery has obviously passed on to… Continue

So many decisions have led me here, where i am. Director of Marketing at a Major medical manufacturer, new mom, wife and new home owner. I majored in Political Science, started in sales and am now in marketing. How does that happen? Like it happens to alot of young people who major in something ridiculous like political science! You get out of college, no idea what to do with the obscure degree you obtained (could be that you majored in a language or just general business!) and you get a first… Continue

Forgive me as I repeat a story some of you may have heard, but it still makes me smile to this day and yesterday Greg said something that reminded me of it again.
Back after September 11th there were hundreds … no thousands of memorials and services of every kind. Being in New York at that time, as many of you can attest to, was a surreal experience and one I pray no one has to ever live through again regardless how proud I am to claim my Native New Yorker status. It seemed there was not a… Continue

So that was what my 3 year old said to me today. Now let me fill you in on why that came out of his mouth, because it really is funny!
We love Disney movies over here at my house and whenever any of the old classics come out of the "vault" we try to pick it up and save for the kids when they get older. Well my Mom bought the kids Sleeping Beauty for Christmas this past year and I finally openned it the other day and watched it with my 3 year old son. I completely forgot how scary… Continue

Many like to call it work, life balance…I think it is more like juggling! It is not just the job and family pins that are up in the air…there are MANY more. In my world I have the baby, the husband, the house, the career, industry boards I am on, my friends, social networking, blogs and me time. If you sit back and look at it is will make you dizzy. I have decided that the only way I can functionally get through a day and be a rock star at all of these is to juggle them and be completely… Continue

Michael Jackson has meant so much to so many. His forty plus years as the consummate entertainer has kept and enthralled fans, generation after generation. Each generation has their own version of Michael Jackson, because he was a master at reinventing himself time and time again. My version…the version that I hold dear is boy version. I was never a crowd-following groupie. You would never see me among the police-restrained throngs along the streets as the Jackson Five motorcade passed by. No,… Continue

Well here I am toasting the success of my recycling pledge! (clink!)
I did it!
I reused all my bags and I can say it was a great challenge to do, it really made me think about all the bags I use normally. From food shopping to buying birthday presents for the girls to buying things for myself i think i probably saved myself from accumulating about 30plastic bags this week! Imagine if i stuck to this pledge and saved myself the same amount every week… Continue

My husband has dry skin. Like…really dry. And he’s constantly going through every lotion bottle I buy, want me to scratch him (*ew*) and just doesn’t seem to get any kind of relief. So when Skin Free
contacted me about their products, I jumped on the opportunity. Finally, something that might cure my hubby of his (in my opinion, annoyingly) dry skin and super dry (yet disgusting) feet.

The News Frenzy Begins
On June 25, 2009 while having dinner during my vacation in Sanibel Island, Florida, I read on Facebook from my phone that Michael Jackson had died. Since FaceBook is not exactly a newsworthy source, I thought it was a joke and had to ask our waiter if it was true. Go figure, it was true because CNN was breaking the story on one of the TVs in the bar. I quickly turned to Twitter (from my phone) to see what people were tweeting about, and sure enough fail whale after… Continue

It's hard to know just what to expect from a "Lake Michigan Shore Wine Festival." One of the ladies on our tour bus summed it up by saying, "...accent on Fest." I imagined the images below, only graced also with colorful tents on the beach sheltering tables and chairs, the tablecloths lifting and wafting in the soft lake breeze. I imagined baskets of wine plunked in the sand in shady nooks, waiting to join their fellows sitting opened and chilling in big silver ice buckets. And I imagined happy… Continue
