Since I want to reach as many readers as possible, I am always glad when I find something free that I can use to promote my blog. When I learned about Entrecard a couple of months ago, I was exited to join. As everyone in the blog word knows, they recently changed their format and are now featuring paid ads, which will be displayed on your blog if you approve them. A lot of mom blog writers I follow are really upset about these changes and are stopping to participate. Maybe they have been with… Continue

During the holidays you see it everywhere, cheap chocolate. And usually with cheap chocolate comes concern. It took a little more thought, but we were able to enjoy a melamine-free Easter at our house:
Are you still worried about tainted chocolate? Did you do anything different this Easter because of the tainted chocolate scares in… Continue

Author Kelly Corrigan wrote this moving essay about women's remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure. This actually brought me to tears and makes me feel so proud of my gender. I also feel sorry for the men in our lives because they miss out on so much by not having this kind of support system. If you haven't seen this before please take the time to watch it now. Women are truly special and I raised 3 great ones, this is for them. I only wish I had written it.… Continue

We could think of it this way: the four basic flavor components in wine are sweet, acid, bitter, and tannin. We enjoy these flavors in drinks individually all the time. For sweet, think fruit juice; for acid, think lemonade; for bitter, think very dark cocoa or dark beer; and for tannin, remember your last cup of black tea. Add fizz and you have carbonated soda.
Wine combines all these flavors, including fizz occasionally – sounds disgusting, but isn’t! – in subtle, balanced doses,… Continue

When my children were babies, I never suspected that there were toxic chemicals in their baby shampoo. I figured that these companies had been around for decades and could be trusted to be safe.
Well, I was in for a shock when I discovered that not only was baby shampoo unsafe, but so was baby bath, baby lotion, and baby powder. Now my mind was reeling – what was in MY shampoo and body wash? What about all the other personal care products my family and I used on a daily basis?… Continue

I've been a stay at home mom now for 4 years and have run the gammit of children's television programming. Noggin, PBS Kids Sprout, and the Disney Channel have all graced our family room television and provided D (with his brothers soon to follow, I'm sure) hours of non-stop preschool entertainment and me with those cherished moments to sit on my computer and blog fold laundry, start dinner, or the holy grail of mommy-alone-time: peeing without interruption.
Of course, there are… Continue

This blog isn't about my usual businesses. Goodness knows I need to promote them, rather about a favorite holiday. Although I haven't decorated. I am eating hard boiled eggs however....the girls decorated them. Nothing fancy, just the paas Easter egg kit, and yes we are already eating them. Do you have an Easter tradition? Share it! What else other than hiding Easter baskets. I will probably go out tonight and get some things for the girls. I tried to get the girls skates but hubby said walmart… Continue
