Why #ichoose Scentsy

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…

Why Do We Own

Most people say they own too much stuff.  We all know we are guilty of excess in some area of our lives.  However, WHY do we own the things we fill our homes, offices and cars with?  There are many theories, but here are a few:

First, our stuff allows us to do things. This is true for all the items we need in our lives to do things like cook, learn, groom and care for our children.  These things also help us control our environment.  For example, we WANT things like air conditioners…

How to Make Transitioning Your Baby Into Their Own Room Easier

Many parents work very hard to decorate a nursery for their baby; however, most parents will tell you that their child didn’t sleep in his or her own room for the first few weeks.  During those first few weeks most parents choose to keep the baby in their room so that they can easily check on them during the middle of the night.  Read the full story at: Uplifting Families…

Fantastic Friday - Having It All, Your Way

Fantastic Friday - it is fantastic to know that you can have it all, if you define what having it all is for yourself.

Every few months there is a big uproar in mainstream media about how horrible life is because women cannot have it all. These discussions always amuse me. Typically, the article talks about how hard life is for women who cannot work 16 hours a week at an external job and work 16 hours a day at being a sexy wife and loving mother. The math just doesn't add up if this…

Magnificent Monday - Aaahh I Was on My Own

Magnificent Monday - and just like that I was on my own, an ahhh, moment.



Each Magnificent Monday throughout the month of September will be about sharing an  "aaaahhhh, that's when moment." This week's moment is the moment I realized I was an adult living on my own.



When I was nineteen years old I moved out of my mother's house and into my own one room apartment in Center City Philadelphia. I moved into the Lucy Eaton Smith Home for Girls.…

Happy Fathers Day - Did You Grow Up Without a Father?

Happy Father's Day! It is a sentiment that I have rarely had a chance to express to my own father. He was in and out of my life for many years and when he was in my life, it felt strange to say it. Happy Father's Day seems like a special statement to be reserved for the most special fathers, you know, the ones who were around to change diapers, wipe tears, give great advice, lecture that boy taking me out on my first date,  and walk me down the aisle during my…

Kindergarten Coiffure

Last Friday was like any other day.  The girls came home on the bus.  They played outside until it started to get dark.  We were all tired from the long week so we decided to have pizza for dinner.  After dinner we watched a movie together, and then it was time for Hunter to go to bed.  She went to her room, put on her pajamas and brushed her teeth.  As she was leaning over to kiss us goodnight, I noticed something wrong.  She had bangs where she didn’t have them…

Can I work from home?

I had a bright idea one day.....since I have a few things to sew anyway AND there is a craft show coming up.....why not sew a few more and try to start a business? 4 months and hours upon hours of work later I'm realizing a little bit of talent and creativity does not a booming business make. 

I managed to secure a booth last minute at my very first craft show the week of Thanksgiving. The 2-day show was scheduled for the second week of December. Even though I knew I had a lot of work to…

Starting Your Own Business: Ain't No Piece of Cake

Starting you own business might not be every working mom's dream but I am certain that it is an aspiration for many. The thought of a shorter commute, more time with the kids and not having to deal with an insensitive and pestering boss are one of the many perks that come to mind.



So, what does it take to start your own business? I am the farthest thing from an expert on the subject, I am in the process of starting my own business… Continue

My Babysitter is quitting in September!!!

I have a wonderful older woman who takes care of Sophia when I am @ work and neither my mother or my husband can do it. She give me peace of mind.

In the mornings Sophia just waves goodbye @ the door like I am just going to take the trash out!

Last week, Tia Maria (Aunt Maria), as we call her, gives me the… Continue
