Ode To My Crock Pot

Oh crock pot, how I love thee. Let me count the ways...

  1. You cook delicious meals without much help from me.
  2. Your meat is so tender.
  3. Your time saver techniques are a life saver.

Embrace the "F" Word

Learning to Deal with Failure

When was the last time you failed? I don't mean a little mistake. When was the last time you experienced a bona-fide, gut-wrenching, FUBAR failure? I used to be afraid to fail. I think I spent much of my twenties and my early thirties trying hard not to fail. Back then, I had serious perfectionist tendencies and worked hard not to make a mistake.  I look back at how naive I was then.…

Samelia’s Favorites for the Spring Beauty 2011

 

 

Many of you have started asking me what makeup looks you should wear for spring.

 

As I told you last spring, I am a huge fan of natural-looking self–tanner and bronzer. There is nothing better then keeping a healthy glow without having to damage your skin by baking in the sun, although I know some of you will go in the sun away!

A Global Mindset Starts at Home



Preparing for the Global Work Place

"What color are you?" Huh? "What. Color. Are. You.?" Me? I'm shopping at Pier 1 Imports in the home fragrance aisle and see a young, blonde girl about six years old looking up at me. "What color are you? Are you brown?" I'm wondering how to answer this question. Should I pretend I didn't hear her? Do I answer? She's so cute and it's an innocent question. I go for it. "Well,…

Thrifty Mama Therapy: GNO

Girls Night Out. At my age, it doesn't mean squeezing into tight dresses and hitting the clubs. Really, it means plain and simple - just the girls, and the night involves talking, eating and drinking. Last night, we had an evening planned at a new restaurant downtown, just my 6 oldest and bestest girlfriends. We had been planning it for almost 2 months. Unfortunately the day of, 2 of our girlfriends had to back out. I was bummed, but 4 of us still planned to meet at a restaurant we all love…

How to Pair Wine with Junk Food

As a mom of two-within-two-years, I’ve had many learning opportunities to refine my coping skills.  While this category of behavior includes healthy activities like working out or meditation, I tend to defer to other ones such as wine, junk food, and mindless television.  The truth of the matter is that I have…

The Nanny Tax Part 1: To Pay or Not to Pay?

Zoe Baird. Kimba Wood. Sound familiar? Both of these  prominent women were nominated for high-level political appointments only to see their nominations torpedoed due to not paying taxes on their household help. It's a common story these days; many families either don't know about the so-called 'nanny tax' or simply choose not to pay it. After all, no one really pays these taxes…

MamaBlogger365 - Kim Jennings, Remembers to TUNE IN!

I decided to write myself a letter – a forgotten art – as a way of kickstarting myself into the new year.


Dear Me,

I’m so sorry I’ve been so out of touch. I know you know I’ve been busy, and I know you say you understand, but really, I have no excuse for having neglected you most of this past year.

Bitchslapped by Tiger Mom! Damn!

I've by now heard all this silly controversy over Amy Chau's book Tiger Mom, or whatever it's called.  I happened to be at Yale for a book signing so thought I would go meet this woman.  I was wearing one of my typical but awesome outfits; straight tight jeans, a very hard to find, but perfect fitting white T, high, black boots, and a black leather jacket.
