So lucky to be invited to this event on Wednesday night! I was so tired in the late afternoon and sooooo tempted to bail and curl up on the couch with a cup of tea. I can't tell you how happy I am that I powered through the nasty traffic and torrential downpouring rain to go! Here's a video of the swag from the tweetup and of course of my "crowned" toes (my daughter was so jealous).
Facebook Rehab 4: Strike of The Enabler
By “Samantha Greene”
It’s my usual time to Facebook. I’m wearing my favorite FB sweats, sitting in my comfortable chair, got the incense and a glass of red by the computer. In short, I’m in full frontal Facebook mode. But I’ve absolutely squandered my allotted 15 minutes earlier today, so I’m not supposed to log on. Grrrrrr!!!!
Earlier this evening, my friend Farrah asked me today why I’m doing this Facebook detox, so I gave her… Continue
The shower used to be a place I had a few minutes to escape, relax or cry if I needed to.
And it always was - until yesterday.
I needed a shower really bad. I'm not counting, but it may have been a week since I last washed my hair. My scalp was starting to itch. Sorr, if you are looking for the romantic side of motherhood, please check another blog.
I completed the nighttime routine and I was in the clear for a shower. A few moments of bliss.
The Baba and Dedo were over to… Continue

Don't you just love when you find out you are not alone? I don't mean alone in the literal sense, but when you think you must be the darkest, most horrible wife and mother on the planet ... and then you find you aren't! That at least if you are, you have company! That others have days just as bad. I have been convinced lately that the rest of the world has perfect relationships with each other. Perfect marriages, perfect parents, perfect children, perfect friendships.
Yes, I know there is… Continue

Hey ladies! I absolutely adore what I do and would love to keep at it comfortably so I'm looking for sponors for my green blog. How would I go about seeking sponsorship from companies? Any advice or insight greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
So you never thought raising a child could be so expensive? Well guess what it is so every chance that you get to save a few dollars, take it.
Finding places outside of the toy store and Babies R’ Us to purchase baby items at a steep discount to the retailers is a golden opportunity to help inflate your bank account.
If you head out your front door or any given Saturday or Sunday morning you will more than likely notice that families all across America are selling off their old… Continue

Well if any of you know me, you'll know that i like a challenge (with having 4 kids and all lol!) and when i was tagged by the lovely sparx and the wonderful potty mummy to do the rubbish diet's recycling pledge, a bit in side of me was like.......go on why not, I'll add it my small list of daily things to do!
I am a good girl and i do recycle all my bottles, newspapers, magazines, can and cardboard but i will hold my hands up and say i do not re-use my plastic bags. I have quite a… Continue

It seems that everybody is talking about the evils of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). But what is fact and what is simply hearsay? Here we will give all the facts about HFCS.
What, exactly, is HFCS?
High-fructose corn syrup is a common sweetener and preservative. HFCS is made by changing the sugar (glucose) in cornstarch to fructose – another form of sugar. The end product is a combination of fructose and glucose. Because it extends the shelf life of processed foods and… Continue
I cannot begin to tell you how gratifying being a member of the blogosphere has been for me over the last 9 months....Having a husband who is deployed for most of the year....many nights it has been my outlet and my friend...

I'm not really the kind of blogger (or person) who tells other adults what to do (the kids are fair game, obviously), but I think I'm becoming an unofficial ambassador for the Red Cross.
If you're eligible to donate blood, you can make an appointment online right this second on the Red Cross website. Setting up an account, finding a blood drive/donation center, and making an appointment takes less… Continue

I have to tell you about my hilarious days adventure I had yesterday. It all started with wanting to go on a hike in a "new" area. After doing some searching online, I called my friend Kevin and asked him to meet me at exit 45 so we could drive the 3 mile dirt road leading to Ira Springs Trail in his Jeep. The trip started out uneventful until we reached a caution sign in the middle of the road and a washed out area from… Continue

It's being published by Simon & Schuster. I'm thrilled, as you can imagine. Let's start with the fact that I'm enchanted with my editor, Megan McKeever. The excitement she and her team have for this project is an author's dream.
And just think: this time next year, it will be on a bookstore shelf near you.
What's the story? It is a chronicle of the bitter divorce of a "perfect couple," and its impact on the gated community in which… Continue

Today is Day Two of my self-imposed withdrawal program from Facebook, and I’m afraid I have not used wisely my 15 minutes ration of FB time today. I squandered… Continue
