Is Gambling a Man's Thing? We Dare to Disagree

To be a professional gambler, you need to be a man - at least this is what many media outlets and society as a whole are trying to tell us. Of course, men are seen as being risk-takers but this doesn't necessarily translate into them being the only gender to enjoy playing casino games. Stats show that as many women enjoy a few spins on a Royal Vegas slot machine than…

You've probably peaked by now

I often wonder about the next milestones in store for my son. When he was a baby, the milestones were frequent and momentous: First rollover, first crawl, first words, first steps. As he has gotten older, the firsts in his life are further apart and sometimes harder to notice.…

Don't forget to water the parents

I am very happy to be back at home to spend time with my son, especially as he is about to be off from school for the holiday. We have a list of special things for the two of us to do together while we are home. I am trying to treasure this time, because I know that one day, he will want his Mommy to be just like a plant.…

Creating Memories With Your Kids

I’ve always wanted to decorate my house for every holiday, complete with themed wreath on the door and decor on the fireplace mantel. Why can’t I still do that?? Mostly because life happens. Money isn’t always there to spend on decor for every holiday. I know, I know. I can always…

How to Take Better Pictures of Your Kids

Over the last few months, I have had several different people ask me if I’m a photographer, as in a “professional photographer.”

That’s rather flattering because, no, I’m not. I’m a mom with a nice camera who loves to take pictures of her children, and while I have been really…

The Way We Remember

After I posted 50 Facts, a friend mentioned to me that she didn't know if she could write one herself. And it got me thinking in tangents about things I thought about writing here a while back when I had little time to blog but plenty of inner-chatter to chat out, if you know what I mean.



I explained to her that truthfully, that list of 50 took me a few years to complete. A little idea jumping out here and there on occasion, and…

I have no idea what is on television these days - and I am happy about it

I can hear myself now: "When I was little, television shows only came on during a certain time, so you had to make sure you were home in time to watch it. There was no way to pause the program either, so you had to time your bathroom breaks and snack runs during the commercials."…

Maternity Photos Are A Great Way to Capture Memories of Your Pregnancy

When I found out that I was pregnant with my third child, words couldn’t describe how excited I was after the initial shock wore off.  It took us a while to become pregnant and though the timing might have been off slightly everything worked out.  I was blessed with a beautiful, healthy little…

This is one fear I don't think I'll ever conquer

5:45am



That's what time it is right now and I'm as close to wide awake as I can get with less than an hour and a half of sleep. 



I love the weather.



Rain?



Love it!  Walking in it. Sitting on a porch watching it. The scent of it. Everything about it!



Snow?



As long as I don't have to go…

Some Dreams Are Just To Bizarre To Explain

Holiday Drama

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them!  Slow your hearts down…  I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month.  I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do.  That’s right… NOTHING.  It feels odd and I’m a little out of place.  I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold.  SO I guess, as…

Happy Holidays, A-holes!!!

Ah, it's the holiday season -- that magical time of the year when you wanna sip hot cocoa by the fire and shove people outta the way for a deal on a flat-screened t.v.  Cause let's be real, y'all.  December tends to turn the very best of us into giant assholes.

Every year I tell myself I'm not gonna get swept up into all the hoopla of running here, there and…

Memory Can

After a trip with my husband I was looking for a way to keep our collection of rocks from the trip in view and seen.  I wanted the memories to be right there everyday, in my sight.  I made this great craft to help me do that: Memory Can

The Magic of the First Snowfall

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season.  Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world.  And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.

We got our first snowy dusting just this…

When Sandy gives you rain...

Hurricane Sandy left us cold and wet on Halloween. Normally we would hold Trunk or Treat in our church parking lot but the storm made us make some changes to our tradition.  Because we have a large lobby and gym, our leader - Fred - decided we would be holding what…

Just Singin' in the Rain...

 
One of the best parts of being a mommy is being able to relive my favorite childhood moments AGAIN, only in the company of my daughter and husband.
 
Yesterday, after seemingly eons of hot days that have scorched our lawn grass into a bed of straw, the skies became super thick…
