Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack... Repeat. There are days when I’m not exciting about having to prepare another meal.

One of the quickest healthiest breakfasts you can throw together. A dish of lovely creamy porridge. You can either do it the proper way in a pan and simmer and stir, you can make it in minutes in the microwave or you can go instant with a dish of Ready brek. Whichever way you choose it’s…Continue

Recently I had the privilege of taking Illy out on a date. We'd been talking about it for a while and were long past due for an outing, but there always seemed to be something else going. "Dates" don't always have to be a big outing, in fact, some of our dates have been a sweet treat and girlie movie. No BOYS allowed! ;) This time, however, I wanted to do something special and…Continue

I have been experiencing I guess they call it writers block or I've really been trying to put more focus on my family than the blog or maybe just writers block. I was finding myself obsessed (shocker) with trying to post everyday.…Continue
My husband and I took a trip to Aruba a few years ago and when we came home I was pregnant.

Booze, chicks at the bar, lewd behavior, all on a Saturday evening and...
at the local Applebee's.
Ok, so, maybe there wasn't booze, chicks at the bar, or lewd behavior. This was the behavior my 9 year old daughter, Flower, "saw", what she cooked up in her head and swore off ever eating at an Applebee's again.
Let me explain.
Saturday is our day to eat out for dinner. The Hubs recommended Applebee's because he wanted to use a gift…Continue

Nobody backs baby into a…closet? For all you youngins, go watch Dirty Dancing to partially get that reference.

Tis the season to enjoy a vacation with the family. Let’s face it, we all can use a little bit of relaxation and fun in the sun. But traveling with children, especially with little ones under 5 can be hectic at times, particularly on long flights. From being tired, lack of room to move, or pure boredom, these flights can be tumultuous. So which airlines cater more to families? Well look no further! Based on my personal experience and searching the web, I have compiled a list of the top…Continue
My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…Continue
I was on my way to pick up my husbands grandma and it hit. A full on panic attack. The panic was brought on by the realization that I almost lost my mother. My stomach churning, my heart racing, my throat feeling as if I swallowed a rock, and in my head visions of unspeakable…Continue
