I love to bake and now that I am staying home with my little guy, I can actually bake cookies for the older kids
hubby seems to eat most of them
. They love to take a sweet homemade teat in their lunchbox each day, and I am glad to be able to bake them. Problem is... I don't always have the time to go looking for creative cookie or brownie recipes. Cakes and pies are great, but cookies and brownies are the favorites at the Phillips' house.
So, in my search for easy… Continue

I want to be a member of someone's audience. Ellen's, Oprah's, The View's. I want free gifts, titillating conversation, and a favorable camera angle when I flash on the screen. It seems like everyone is having so much fun. The audience is always the "best one on TV", the "most beautiful of all shows", and privy to gifts that no one knew they wanted but is the best thing in the world because it is free.
What does it take to be a member of one of those audiences? A trip out of town? A… Continue

Most of us like the idea of being good, and since it can mean different things to each one of us, I'd like to explore this topic a little deeper.
As a little girl, being "good" meant obeying my parents, doing well in school and feeling good when someone told my mother, "She's a good little girl."
As we grow older, how to be good is generally associated with giving to others, whether it's a listening ear, helping someone in need, or volunteering our time for what we… Continue

After a weekend filled with MUCH earlier starts to my mornings than I can truly handle, I was reminded, once again, of the power of getting a good night's sleep. I can function with 7 but much prefer 8 hours of sleep a night, which is a more elusive target to hit, since I became a mom. Those nights of a couple blocks of 2-3…

Glad to be back from a very pleasant relaxing 4-day vacation in beautiful Beaver Island. It is known as America's #1 Emerald Isle and cannot wait to show the pics to prove it. The island is exactly what my fiancee described it to be: right out in the middle OF THE MIDDLE of nowhere. Was he right or was he RIGHT. It is surrounded by nothing but sand, beach on Lake Michigan, orchards with apples in bloom, and woods full of thick, tall trees. With not very many… Continue

In 2004, I went to my OB. They drew blood & confirmed I was pregnant. When my OB came to my room, we discussed the complications I had with my first pregnancy. A few bouts of pneumonia had caused fetal complications, causing DJ to be born at 29 weeks. After considering this, my OB looked at me & said, "You're high risk. Your pneumonia's haven't been diagnosed, treated, or cured. You can te… Continue

The obsession with my newly found identity crisis led me to believe that the labels put on SAHM’s strictly came from the 50’s and 60’s Susie Homemaker persona; however, the eruption of shows like The Real Housewives of… (pick a city, any city) has 21st century housewifery represented as gossiping cats with faux fur who claw at each other at social events. This new 21st century housewife has no responsibilities except to keep a high social standing and… Continue

Sarah peed on the carpet in my room today. Again.
She does it every day. I don't know why. She admires the dogs I guess.
Of course no one bothers to tell me that there is a puddle of pee slowly seeping into my 6 month old carpet, burrowing itself down to my waterproof pad, daring me to suck it out with my steam cleaner. Nope. They just let me step right in it.
Now I know what you are thinking. Poop on the floor the other day, pee today... what kind of household… Continue

Have you noticed the different treatment Bristol Palin receives from the media compared to her mother, Sarah Palin? Read my post on http://marinagraphy.com
to see how media perceptions of these two women affect the messages our daughters receive. It is not a political post...it's a womanhood post.
Share me with your friends if you like and let me know you dropped by with your blog's link. I will visit back. Thanks

An old country preacher was fishing one afternoon when he noticed a frog sitting next to him. The frog said, “Mister, I’ve had a spell cast on me. If you’ll kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess and I’ll make you happy for the rest of your life.”
The old preacher smiled, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. After a while, he looked into his pocket to see how the frog was doing.
The frog said again, “Mister, I’ve had a spell cast on me. If you’ll kiss me,… Continue

Do not say, "I will do to others as they have done to me; I will pay them back for what they have done.", Proverbs 24:29
truth is, two wrongs don't make a right, my son...evil you must choose
to shun. The Bible says, "to run"...from it...forfeit the temporary
satisfaction you get from it. Don't plummet...right after them...into
sin! If you saw other person jump off a bridge, you wouldn't leap… Continue

Thirteen years ago when my two older kids were just babies, I started to shop Goodwill
for their baby clothing
. At the time I felt like I was a minority, but I have to say, I had some of the best dressed little ones around, and I paid next to nothing for their clothing. The thing about baby clothing
, dresses, and holiday clothing is that the kids tend to outgrow them before they ruin them. Therefore, bargain shoppers like me reap the benefits.… Continue
