Moms, we simply cannot get enough love, especially summer love. Maybe it's because summer love feels friendlier when we are walking to the beach carrying a chair, a favorite book and an iPod to keep our own delicious thoughts company. Seriously, don't your olfactory sensibilities become completely engaged with fresh suntan lotion? The smell of Coppertone and I'm 13 all over again.
Summer sea breezes make most of us swoon. Shakespeare's famous, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?… Continue

I consider myself a fairly trendy and savvy mom when it comes to what I buy my children. I stay on top of parenting magazines and fashion magazines with the same enthusiasm. With that said, I am not to the extreme as to spend way out of my budget, just so my tot can have shoes like some famous persons kid. <---insert lameness here. I will admit that I use to overspend on my daughter. Ridiculous. My daughter was the only child and grandchild on both sides of the family, so you can only… Continue

I am amazed, astounded at how many "blog-hops" are happening on Friday now. I was at one site that had buttons for 9 Friday themed blog-hops. 9?!?
It's great that we're all wanting to connect. I'm just surprised we're all trying to do it on Friday. So, with the plethora of Friday blog-hops in the blogosphere I'm making a move. Beginning Saturday, July 17, The original Virtual Girls Night… Continue

Ever notice how most people are rather upbeat and optimistic at the beginning of a trip whether it is for work or "pleasure." The other morning at a hotel a family was at the front desk asking travel related questions as I was dropping off our keys. The parents and the children were talking about what a great night they had and how they were looking forward to the rest of the week.
Several hours later we stop for lunch and had to wait for a table as there were after church folks as… Continue

My first time ever hearing of Temple Grandin was last December or January of this year when I was sitting on the couch, watching an HBO movie and a preview to the 'Temple Grandin' made for HBO movie came on. I was mesmerized by this preview. It described how this woman who spoke her first words at nearly 4 years of age (she is now 62) was diagnosed with autism by her first doctor and her parents were told she'd never talk and would have to be institutionalized. So little was known about autism… Continue

It is so nice of all you ladies to show your support and stop by my page. At this time, I am having an electronic breakdown. In the past 2 weeks, my cell phone, fake iPod and laptop broke.
Right now I use my work computer but I really don't want to post anything until I get my laptop.
I look forward to becoming more involved and learning about blogging which has been on my list for about 5 years along with the 10 year task list of web design. As you can see I am a big… Continue

I am currently overseeing an epic NASCAR-style race through my house.
I am supposed to be furiously cleaning. Every year for my birthday, my mother gives me the present of having my house cleaned. And finally, exactly six months after my birthday, I have it scheduled for Continue
tomorrow. It is sorely needed, as the house has become a disgusting
combination of a movie theater (with those sticky floors) and a public
bathroom (I blame that one on the fact that I live…

Now we're in for it...
So as most of you know Aidan went through a
"I don't need food " stage which freaked both Andrew and I out
completely, so much so that we were resorting to sneak food into his
mouth, however we had underestimated how smart our child was(not sure
how that could happen because he is OUR child and we are kinda smart
too) and he would just spit it out again, well we sat panicking about
the amount of food that was making it into him that when… Continue
