Dripping, sticky and covered with ants - I bought a beautiful glass hummingbird feeder a few years ago and it wasn't a good experience. The hummingbirds never noticed the feeder while ants feasted on the sugar water. If the feeder wasn't…

Blogging is a great way to connect with a target audience on a somewhat personal level on one condition... you actually BLOG. It sounds great in theory - start a blog, write about a cool topic, get a bunch of readers to follow you, and BOOM! All of a sudden you've graduated to Perez Hilton status, with 14,500,000 estimated monthly users. Who wouldn't want THAT????
But you need compelling content that people crave. It doesn't happen overnight and it definitely won't happen unless you…Continue

Since the alarm went off this morning I've been cleaning and cleaning because we have a therapist coming to look at Olivia and I don't want them to make a call to the social.
I can hear that convo now<em> " the girl can talk fine, but she live in a hell hole." </em>Kidding.
Although we do have some spackled up walls that I never got around to painting, at least I fixed the holes. Anyways its too late for that, she'll be here at 1.
My house isn't that bad, but…Continue

We are great believers in this notion: If you are incessantly preoccupied with your blogging stats you will fall further and further behind.
If you are completely engrossed with numbers from your blogging readership to your social media followings it takes away from the time and energy you need to spend…Continue
Dual-Income, No Kids.
That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my…

"Make it fun for them", they said.
"Make it age appropriate", they said.
"Make a cute chart for them to follow", they said.
"Pay them for doing the work", they said.
"Shut up", I say to them, because I have tried all of what "they" said and it didn't work.
C'mon, you've seen all of the pretty Pinterest tutorials on how to make a chore chart with age appropriate chores, giving a sticker for each chore completed. Just…Continue

I have a confession.
I get that same fluttery feeling from appliance stores that most women get from Target. I browse countertop samples, light fixtures, closet systems, and cabinets for hours. I look at molding and backsplashes and flowers. Then, right before I leave I visit my most favorite section- the paint samples....and I collect about 100 paint chips. (I'm not even going to tell you how long those will stay in my the…Continue

Nowadays the Internet and television dictate the way we live. (Even if you are not an avid TV consumer, you will still know who the Kardashians are or what happened to John Kerry.) Some information is simply impossible to dodge. The key thing the media are telling us is that we should keep watching other people's lives to fill the voids in our own existence.
But the actual truth is quite different – you must be the person taking care of yourself and filling those empty spaces with…Continue

Yesterday before going to pick Addie up from school, I took O to the park and found myself legitimately amused. My fearless,nervy,undaunted little Olivia Louise wasn't so fearless after all (party in my head). I couldn't have been more pleased to find that she was timid at the park, that she was cautious and safe. As for the swing her reaction took me by surprise and the surprise was she wanted out ASAP. I mean she giggled for two seconds then it was over. It wasnt her first time in a swing,…Continue
