We are running late this year. Me barely being home has switched our whole dynamic. Instead of getting our tree Thanksgiving weekend we got it last weekend. And instead of decorating it right then, well, we did it last night! Sort of. We are still missing our yearly ornaments (and we still need to get this year's). I guess I wil have to take all Sunday to finish decorating the house before my parents come visit (!!!).

While I was making cranberry scones with my children, a little cranberry kept prodding me to let her tell the baking story. So, in a spirit of silliness and fun, I let her. I invite you to read my guest writer's post here.
Thank you all and best regards. :-)

She told me that she wanted to watch the movie "You're The Apple Of My Eye" very badly... and since yesterday was the last day of her finals, I allowed her to watch it with her friends... Her friend managed to get the tickets but it was for the 10.30pm schedule, that means I have to go and fetch her after midnight!
Gosh, it was…

Supposedly to be a happy occasion, my sister and her family went to the bride's house to congratulate her before the wedding dinner. According to my sister, the kitchen was very wet and all of a split second, she just fell and she felt something not right immediately after that... she couldn't get up at all, the pain on her ankle was too excruciating!
Immediately my brother-in-law carried her to the car... and despite the pain, she called me... and I advised her to go to a private…

I've always lived with in driving distance of my family. Now that we've moved to a different state I was wondering how I would be able to handle being so far away from them. I come from a very close nit family and I grew up with frequent "get togethers". Isabel has also been very close with her cousin Nathan. From the moment they were born they've seen each other almost every week for play time. At this point they even have their own language. …

I am totally hyped to say that my Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with the people I love, it was quiet and peaceful, and the food was amazing. Way to go, Mom, by the way! I skipped Black Friday because besides being broke beyond belief, I wanted to just lay around with my babies. And that is exactly what we did. My children enjoyed a 5 hour Power Rangers marathon, again, which I ain't gonna lie, I did…Continue

Are you a marathon shopper? Maybe the one that get to the stores the night before a HUGE sale for the best deals? I've seen some amazing pictures of the deals people have been getting from the Black Friday shopping trips and a part of me (a very SMALL part) wonders what it would be like. continue

Congratulations, you’re married.
You’re about to enjoy a honeymoon but it won’t be long before the warm, fuzzy fairy-dust of lovey-dovey grossness will settle and you’ll clearly see the relationship you’ve entered.
You’ll bicker over someone’s driving, limited closet space, and hangers.

One of you asked whether I am considering remarriage... the answer is 100% a No, a NO.. and A NO..
One marriage is enough, two times will too much....... ooopsss...sorry, I am speaking for myself only... no offence to anyone...
On the serious note, once upon a time, I did think about it, when my kids were pretty
and young, friends and relatives alike, they encouraged me to get into marriage again... but on the other hand, some jested about "now that…
