Living in a first-world industrialized nation makes it easy to over indulge, over consume & easily squander our resources. But what's great about living in this type of society is that we are given the all-important choice to NOT do any of these things. I feel Blessed to be living in this great nation--The United States of America. I would never want those choices taken away from me, but what I'd rather do is spread awareness and increase knowledge of alternative ways of living. And this…Continue

I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by creativity in the form of my favorite people: the Huz, the first-born (my 13-year-old), and "the baby" (who's 10). Their love for superheroes and Lego sets/themes go beyond just the occasional build. They collect, they research (look at reviews, video blogs etc), they anticipate release dates, and my favorite, they make stop-motion videos. ☺I especially love when they collaborate--it's beyond awesome to see them bounce ideas off each other (and yes…Continue

Yes, it's that time again. I've collected some more funny things, at least what has actually made me laugh. I have quite the cheesy sense-of-humor and not above some crass. So, if you're easily offended, go ahead and skip this entry...but I'm usually appropriate so feel free to check out my other entries. So, here you go.....Laugh and enjoy!
Okay, so I've heard that season changes and "the beginning" of anything can send people to emotional highs and lows. And since I'm still in start-of-school mentality and feel those emotional bittersweet pangs caused by my rapidly aging kids, I thought I'd put together a laugh track post of some of the things I've encountered on the internet. Granted, you have to surf the same wave of my dry and unique sense-of-humor, but hopefully you'll find something to chuckle at.…Continue

My husband came to me and asked, "Have you seen Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt?"
"No. Why? Is it any good?"
"Oh, man! YOU have to see it. It's uncanny!" He continued, "It's about this girl who escapes a cult and decides to take on New York City with her positive, can-do attitude..."
Then he raised his eyebrows and did this slooow nod, like, You know what I'm saying. Ha. Ha.
You see, Kimmy…Continue

So maybe I might get in trouble for this but for this month’s Rants and Underpants, Sophie the Giraffe is in the hot seat. So what do I have against this toy? Nothing, it’s a great toy. It maybe one of the most recognizable baby toys in the world. I have never met a new mother that didn’t own one. Infact, I have 2 kids and have owned 3 Sophies. So why did Sophie make it on my Rants and Underpants series? Well, when I was expecting my second, there weren’t many things I needed to…Continue

It all started a few years ago when my daughter’s friend was jumping on my brand new hammock and broke the metal stand. I have no idea why she would pick my hammock to jump on when there was a perfectly good…Continue

That’s what was running through my head as I removed myself from underneath my 2 year old (almost 3) Grandson Brayden. He personally called me last…Continue

Okay, so maybe I'm not the best example of fine parenting that the world has to offer; but dammit... We sure do have a good time!
My husband went camping with his family the day after Thanksgiving, leaving me and the pip in a clean house full of food for two whole days (don't judge, I don't camp; and in my defense, Isla has been having this weird thing at night…
