My son likes to tell me stories about his classmates' behavior at school. (He's a bit of a talker.) I know all about the children who use too many paper towels, or the ones who never sleep during quiet time, and even about the ones who have too many "hateful words." I remind my son that I am only interested in his behavior. Then I remind him that…Continue

As I've previously complained, I run in the mornings. I try to stay focused on my breath and my stride and not slipping on unseen ice on the sidewalk and falling on my butt (again), but sometimes I get distracted: Mostly by people's garages.…Continue

My name is Mary but everyone has called me Katie since birth. I was once a wild party girl and I am now a military/ law enforcement wife and a stay at home mother to a beautiful daughter.
I grew up in a tiny town in southern Arizona. Moved from West Virginia at a young age and noone agreed with my country thinking.. (although now its cool to be country!) I moved to Flagstaff after graduation and did not succeed in school. I was that small town upbeat girl in a whole new world and it…Continue

I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:
1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.
2. Whats for dinner? Food, food that…Continue

As mentioned in the past, I work for a great company with a great group of people. There are a lot of women on my team, and there are a lot of mothers. We understand what it means to be a working parent: We watch one another's backs and fill in when family emergencies arise.…Continue

Had you told me there was a possibility that I could have moved my nursery glider to another room in my home, I would have gotten a completely different fabric....completely different style.....most likely a completely different chair all-together. Oh, and I forgot about my husband. I probably would have picked one that fit him, too. Considering the fact that I'm 5-feet tall and he is 6-foot 3 inches, we would have had to look all over the place, right?
If we were having another…Continue

I've spent the last week cleaning and clearing out things from both my home and my storage. Inspired by a book I read about "tidying up" and how we cling to things we don't need for reasons hard to explain, but possible to overcome, I set out to create a home environment in which I wasn't constantly having to clean clutter every single day.
The book is a…Continue

I love my house to smell good as we all probably do. I am so sensitive to fragrances though it is hard for me to find non toxic candles that do not give me a instant migraine.
I saw Old Factory…Continue

Nowadays, a lot of people are suffering from stress. It is indeed a serious condition often associated with high-blood pressure (and we all know why that is bad), headaches, and fertility problems on the long run. Well, what can I say? God has decided that stress is no good for a baby and won't allow us to have one, unless we minimize the stress in our lives. For this reason, I am here to give you an idea where to start from.…Continue

I used to make a lot of money, though I didn't realize it at the time. That 20/20 hindsight can really burn some days. I was doing really well for myself and for my family financially, but I wasn't happy. I wasn't in love with my job anymore, and I tried to compensate by spending the money I was making. Writing at Starbucks, yoga, the gym, spas, masks, and spoiling my family. When we found out we were expecting another little one, I decided I needed to make a change. I know…
Waxing, just like tweezing, can hurt. However, the pain usually comes with the strips and not due to removal of individual hairs. The waxing process is better than hair remover gels or creams because they don’t have unwanted smell. Also, waxing doesn’t give you nasty red rashes. The bikini line as well as the legs isn’t left with cuts and nicks, unlike the aftermath of shaving. Over-the-counter waxes include paraffin and beeswax and they come in containers which can be heated easily. You can…Continue

My son wants to live with the firefighters. He has told me numerous times about his plans to live at the fire station and be in charge of fixing the trucks with special tools. He told me he doesn't want to fight the fires, but he does want to be able to slide down the pole.…Continue

Last year when we decided I would leave work and stay home to care for my mom and kids, one thing became immediately apparent…
Order was needed.
Some kind of system to find stuff and put stuff where stuff belonged after stuff was being looked for and stuff was not found. Another thing also became achingly apparent… we had a lot of… shi.. I mean, stuff!
There were homework supplies on the kitchen table. Fast food (yeah, yeah, we go there!) toys in the…Continue

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home. The kids were in daycare and my…Continue
