Own Your Beauty: The Authentic Self

Reposted from my blog Living Lusciousness



BlogHer came out with Own Your Beauty and I felt so inspired by what it means! It puts in mind my favorite Dove soap campaigns about real beauty and a positive self-image no matter the size, shape or color you are. Olay also has the Love The Skin You're In campaign that features caring for your skin and keeping it healthy. I'm absolutely happy that big… Continue

Planned Parenthood? ~www.TheBloggingMom.com~

Yesterday I was at Madison's basketball game just like I have been every weekend for the last umpteen years. Everything is so nice... enjoying the game... winning...all is good. Problem is, lately I can't actually watch the game because Hudson gets so much attention. Everyone that passes by tends to say something. Of course I don't mind. Most any stay-at-home mom will tell you they love any adult conversation, so this is a good excuse for some small… Continue

Modeling Imperfection

Today one thing is on my mind. It’s about all of the unintentional modeling we do. The modeling of imperfection. The modeling of poor parenting. The modeling of rushed decisions.

2010-08-17 - Tuesday Thoughts - Modeling Imperfection

When I think about the parent I strive to be, it doesn’t usually include many flaws or mistakes. It’s a…

All Boy or Out of Control???

My son has been deemed, “all boy” by numerous good-natured Southern women here in Nashville. I’m not naive; I realize this is a nice way to say, “Your two-year old son is borderline out of control. Have you considered Adderall?”. Despite my hesitation to accept his “all boy” title, I am slowly coming to grips with my lot in motherhood. It’s true, I did not win the “good baby” or “sweet toddler” lottery, in fact, I didn’t even have one matching number.

This past weekend he…

Motherhood and the Little Hotties

While I’m on the beach topic…I couldn’t help myself.



What in the world is that title about? Hotties?!



No, not a mid-life crisis. Just a thought or more as motherhood and age settle in on this thirty-something-mom of three kids.



A few weeks ago I had a lovely best-friends-date. Yes, two moms, happily strapped with one baby each (all older children left at home.) Lots of…

Do You Have Facebook Anxiety?

I avoided Facebook for a quite a long while.



Then, as I decided I was going to start a blog…it felt just a bit funny to have anxiety over joining the online community while sharing my life on a blog for all to see.



So, I joined. I added a few people. I added more people. People found me. I found them. I’ve not really figured out the chatting aspect to it…yet.



But, I’ve remained a bit aloof of the whole thing because, I’ve decided, I…

Tuesday Thoughts | Ahem...Exercise

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.



Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings,

and with my first child just turning one, our walks were just about as

fast as a snail’s pace at that time. Not super-fat-blasting, if you know

what I…

Simple Sunday | 10 Reasons to Ditch the TV

1. The outdoors are calling you!

2. Fresh air does wonders for you and your family.

3. It saves electricity.

4. If you get up…you might just get some exercise.

5. It’s keeping you from being productive.

6. There’s nothing good on.

7. You’ve got a stack of books waiting to be read.

8. Heck, make your own drama.

9. You’ve been wanting to sit down and write for a while now.

10. Life is too short!…

Prom Shoes Switcheroo

My son Chris had his first prom the other night. 8th

grade prom
. Yeah.



They didn’t have that shit when I was in middle school! But hey, times are a changin’ right?



Wrong!



It’s just another way to get us parents to spend more money and compete with each other to see who buys the best, most expensive dress/tux, etc, etc. I mean the whole idea was that senior prom…

Ode to the Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich

2010-05-07 - Foodie Friday - Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich Nights

An occasional foray

Into the kitchen everyday

Has led to many nightly dinners

Of a meal made for winners.

Dear peanut butter jelly, just as night begins to fall,

The children start to call,

“Woe is me. I’m hungry!”

And now, my…

I Don't Let Just Anyone See My Underwear

My husband and I fold laundry together. It’s one of the only chores we can share and still enjoy each other’s company, not only because it’s the only household job that neither of us has passively and purposely fumbled to get out of, but because we joke around a lot while we’re folding, like we just met.



The conversation is also mixed with nostalgia.



“When did our baby start wearing size 12 jeans?” We hold the boys’ pants up to ourselves and observe how close they are to… Continue

What if I had my dad in my life as a child?

I attended my Dad's funeral Friday, and I'm here to tell the story. Instead of telling the story of how my half-brother tried to make me feel insignificant - even during my Dad's funeral ceremony - I'll tell the story of how the relationship that wasn't was, and how I think it's made an amazing difference in my life.



As a little girl, I fantasized ALL the time about how amazing it would be to have my Dad in my life. A couple of my friends had Dad's, and I just could not understand… Continue

The Tale of the Dung Beetle

The Tale of the Dung Beetle

By Pamela Victor



My daughter Sierra, her friend Hope (oh! how this name foreshadows our tale!) and I were walking the dog early one summer morn. The weather was, for once, lovely. Not too hot. Not too cool. Not too buggy even. The girls brought a carrot each, a treat for our neighbor's fine equine companions. Birds chirped. Wind whispered. Girls giggled. All was well in our little piece of the world.



My little nature girl, Sierra, cried out… Continue
