Just wanted to share this with others, these are coming from my Dad's garden.
A 2.5lb tomato and a 19" zucchini, anyone top that?
I hate to say it, but I'm sick of eating squash and tomatoes. LOL

Like many parents I'm always trying to avoid the amount of sugar my toddler gets. This includes juice filled with sugar. With how busy we are and constantly on the go, I'm finding it easy to throw juice boxes in the diaper bag. "Easy" loves them and they're so much easier. So when I found Wateroos I was stoked! It makes both baby and mommy happy! He gets his juice box and I get less sugar. Yeah! "Wateroos are fruit-flavored waters to be as delicious as possible without sugar or artificial… Continue

Lindsey and Michaela are going with their grandparents up to their cottage for almost three weeks. I am only going to have Adela! It will be like a vacation!
Maybe I can catch up on some blogging:)

"Do you want to come swimming with us?" my kids asked a few days ago on a beautiful, sunny, warm Seattle day (we do get those once in awhile).
It's astonishing how many thoughts can flit through someone's mind in the space of a couple of seconds.
I recently wrote an article titled, 'Bikini season almost here - are your daughters… Continue

I love romantic comedies or just comedies. It makes me happy. When I blog more about the movies I watch, you'll see why! :-) So, it's kind of strange by my standards to find me watching something like AUSTRALIA. I mean, AUSTRALIA?
Fine. I'll choke it up. It's Hugh Jackman, awright? Sheesh.....
But I love Nicole Kidman too - so, give me some credit here. It wasn't ENTIRELY a hormone-based decision.
So, I start watching and get enthralled with Jackman on a horse… Continue

Well, for a while now I have been having this uncomfortable "pain" in the evenings (yup, JUST the evening, and night, until I lay down). As if my boy is pushing a foot or knee or elbow at the same place constantly! upper right quadrant of my belly... And it feels like a bruise every time i touch it or cough or laugh etc...
I was wondering if any one is having this to? It's annoying more than anything. But it's been going on for over 2 months. Some days I don't have it but I do most of the… Continue

I got to see my sweet baby boy for the first time yesterday, had a 3D sonogram. I love that we now have this awesome technology. I understand what it's like to wait until they are born to see them, my other two are old enough that this was not a possibility when I was pregnant with them.
There are some special things about boys that don't happen with girls. They are taught to feel macho and tough and to not cry. More so by their dads than by their moms. In fact, we have a pink crib… Continue

I followed her instructions and the result was a big smile in my husband's face. Thanks!
Here is how we did it:
Poster paper (We cut three letters D, A, Y)
Wide picture frame (Found it in… Continue

For the times when it seems the world has gone astray, or just after a tough day, a bath is a wonderful nourishing space to retreat.
When my shower head broke this winter, I was forced to take baths daily for a bit. This "problem" ended up being a wonderful blessing in disguise.… Continue

The hubby and I just celebrated our 5 year Anniversary. We went to Palm Springs for the weekend... CHILDLESS! It was awesome and complete relaxation. When we showed up they told us they upgraded our room to the Presidential Suite! Ballers! Haha... seriously, it was super nice. We lounged poolside with yummy drinks, soaked up the sun, went out to a nice dinner, went to the spa, and lounged some more. We had the best time enjoying each other's company. I love what we have. I love our friendship.… Continue

Last Friday, I was invited to the first ever Tweet Up with Suze Orman, hosted by Avon.
Before providing details about the event, it has to be said that I felt like a Luddite or one of those grandparents who still doesn't have email. This was a tweet up event, right? So there I was, the only one without a computer or blackberry/IPhone to send in our twitter posts. All I had was a pad and pencil and my Motorola RAZR (remember when the RAZR was the coolest phone on the earth and cost… Continue

So the kids are out of school and it's time to hit the road. The summer marks the official start of the vacation season and it's time for fun. One of my favorite vacation destinations is Disney World. I absolutely love everything about the House of Mouse.
My daughter and I visit this magical world about every two years. Now when it's time to get ready for Disney, I plan extensively. I do an extremely amount of research on what are the best days… Continue

Well it is day two of recycling week and my pledge is to reuse my shopping bags. It is going very well, i have not used one plastic bag! I took my big Disney reusable bags with me to the trafford centre to get 3year old and 2year old's birthday presents.
I bough a basket full and when i got to the till and produced my re usable bag the lady was astounded she said 'did you know that you are the first person in a very long time that has used their own bags?' I was shocked and realised… Continue

I think I have finally realized, after a lifetime of drama, that I cannot change my past. I can only examine it, honor it for what it was and move on to what is now.
Did it have to take so long to come to this? Most people, I believe, learn this at a much earlier age. Even my children know if something isn’t working, try a bit and then go on to the next thing. Me? Nope. I get stuck in the holding pattern of What ifs and If Onlys. I will take an incident or relationship and toss it around… Continue

I have been on a great mission to find unique bloggers to review and help their readers find my book. I have been receiving tons of emails and I have been following all the bloggers I meet on Twitter. Wow! Moms with blogs and Dads too, are amazing. They have such a voice. Not only with their kids, but with other Moms, Dads and anyone else they want to reach.
I have decided every blogger is my friend. And as friends, I hope to add to the blogosphere. I am embracing all aspects of it,… Continue

Here are 10 Healthy ideas to help you with your weight loss/fitness goals.
1. Move More
Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn. Anything that moves your limbs is not only a fitness tool, it's a stress buster. Think 'move' in small increments of time. It doesn't have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute aerobic dance… Continue

Starting you own business might not be every working mom's dream but I am certain that it is an aspiration for many. The thought of a shorter commute, more time with the kids and not having to deal with an insensitive and pestering boss are one of the many perks that come to mind.
So, what does it take to start your own business?
I am the farthest thing from an expert on the subject, I am in the process of starting my own business… Continue
