Maintaining friendships when you are a mama can be a tricky business. Often already juggling a hectic home life, work and children, while also trying to carve out a bit of time with Daddy-o, can leave little room for your girlfriends.
The way I see it, there are a few friendship fizzling high risk situations:
1) You become a mama: Many report that their friendships with single/childless girlfriends suffer. Mama feels… Continue

Elle started 6th grade this week…middle school. She has a new school, new bus and a different way of attending school. Rather than one classroom with one teacher and one desk, Elle has graduated to different classrooms for every subject, multiple teachers and a hall locker. This is the big time.… Continue

So my birthday came and it went and I got tons of beautiful "Happy Birthday" messages from friends on my facebook wall for like 3 whole days!! It was so cool. Also it helps for people to know what you really love. For me its Starbucks everything. From mugs, to gift cards to Christmas Ornaments, I'm into the Starbucks logo as much as my Sister in Law Shannon is into the Coke… Continue

I have a lot in my life and I am very blessed. I have a man who adores me, I have two beautiful daughters, I have my health and I am truly happy. But there is one thing in my life that is missing, not exactly missing, just not something I have close by. Girlfriends.… Continue

Today is my 100th post! Wow! I seriously didn’t plan it this way…but I thought this was a fitting blog for my 100th. Here’s to my 200th!
A blogging friend of mine, Kami at The Fence wrote a post about mixing friends on Facebook. She said she hated mixing friends. That got me to thinking, because I love mixing friends. Not only in real life, but in my cyber life as well.

Although I began writing my latest blog on the follies with which people use Facebook and they way some of them are vindictive towards one another, my writing took a different turn, focusing more on the childhood friends I was lucky to have found and reconnected with because of Facebook.
A fellow mom-blogger, I know how busy you all are, but I would love it if you visited my site and read some of my work. I focus a lot of my writing on empowering women and the multi-faceted… Continue

Have you ever been held hostage by a bad party?
Come on, tell the truth.:-)
You know the kind that has as much appeal as your last dental visit, and equally as numbing!
But, out of obligation perhaps to a co-worker, family member or friend, you stayed and endured it. Undoubtedly you made a mental note that the next time “Penelope” gives a party, you’ll definitely be M.I.A. for the R.S.V.P. (Been there, done that).
Don’t get me wrong; it’s always a… Continue

In keeping with tradition today is again Friend Friday. And because it is her 40th birthday (not really, but i dont remember how old she is), today’s friend is: Tracy!
Tracy and I have been friends since 1996. We met while working in the same government office in Austin, TX. We were preggers at the same time and used to waddle over to the snack bar at the same time to get our breakfast… Continue

this? Anyways,there are two things that I have come to know as my

single time one of my…

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell Continue
us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)
our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,
before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I

Well. I had to leave the boat. There's a wedding. My husband on buisness begged me to come with him. A chance to see the grandkids. My friend is very sick. That did it. Here I am back in the land of ice and snow and not completely hating it, but you know.... It snowed all day today and I had to drive the big truck. Less chance of a spin out. I got to spend some time with my sweet friend (sigh), got a parking ticket (groan), had my… Continue

Wow, hard to Believe Valentines Day
is upon us again, and I am so excited it is! It is a day to stop and think about the special people in our lives, and how blessed we are.
I love those days, when we take time out to acknowledge some one special, for whatever reason. I actually try to do it every day in my life, but I must admit, some days get by me
Many of us are always looking for the perfect Friendship Gift, especially on Valentines Day

Today we have a guest blog by Shari from The Friendship Stone Team !
Ok so I am stuck in a virtual real world. I of course I have friends, I have lots of friends, friends that I meet on a regular basis, friends that I speak to over the phone or skype on a regular basis, friends that I see once in a while and friends that I see once a year (but it is like we see each other every day) .

Health, how do we appreciate it without losing it first? This is one of the questions that I think about quite a lot.
1. Everyday when you wake up and nothing hurts, say and know, it’s going to be a GREAT day!
2. If something does hurt, then decide what you are going to focus on instead to get your mind off of the parts that hurt.
3. Focus on what you want to accomplish that day, and then work hard to make it happen! It is such a good feeling when the day winds down to take… Continue
