For teenage boys, wearing sunscreen is soooo not cool...

A few of you out there may have a teenage boy. I personally have a 14 year old boy and am constantly stunned (and puzzled) how his behavior contrasts that of his older sister. I mean, I know there is of course a difference between boys and girls but this to me seems weird: he is embarrassed to wear sunscreen. Is your son/grandson the same way?

 

My most recent blog post provides a little bit of an overview of his distain for…

July 4th is quickly approaching and it’s time to plan the BBQ menu.  This is always a great time of year because you come together with family and friends to have a great time.

10 Fun Summer Activities to Enjoy with Your Kids in NC

If your kids aren't headed off to summer camp this year, you might be stumped as to what to possibly do to keep them entertained and keep you sane. And unfortunately where I live, fun, cultural and educational activities are rare jewels, so we typically have to venture off at least an hour to enjoy ourselves. But don't be discouraged if you live in Small Town, NC like me; North Carolina is chock full of other destinations that are well worth the travel time. I've…

The Maxi Dress - A Mom's Best Friend

Pinned Image

Summer hits, the dresses come out the closet.  I can throw on a dress and run out the house, so I’m in love with the Maxi dress craze.  I add about three summer dresses to my already well supplied dress “department” each year.  I must say it has grown, but this year, it is time to retire some, as they have just “loved” me long enough, lol.  As I was searching for new dresses, I came across Nordstrom’s website and…

An Unexpected Sappy Post (You’ve Been Warned….)



So I got that old familiar pit in the bottom of my motherly stomach again yesterday.  It happened when I dropped my son off for his first day of Sports Camp.  Yes, it's that same ol' dreaded feeling I seem to get whenever I leave my timid little guy in a strange new environment.  You see, unlike his mama, he's quite the shy type, and it takes every bit of my willpower not to play the…

Things I've Learned This Week

** Just so we're clear, I will still drink the wine if a fruit fly lands in my glass.

** The end of the school year is when all the crap that's been shoved into a tiny desk for nine months suddenly makes its way into your kitchen (or your trash).

** My son thinks I grew up in the early 1900's.  Awesome.

EWG Sunscreen Guide 2012: Best for Baby and a Giveaway!

Skin cancer awareness is very important to me. Firstly, I was a cancer registrar for almost 2 years and saw the devastating effects of melanoma, especially in Utah. Utah has the highest incidence of skin cancers because people here are outdoors all year long, and a LOT of these people don't use sunscreen. Secondly, I was a lifeguard for four summers…

I Want to be More of a Cougar

I Want to be More of a Cougar

Wait.. not *that* kind of a cougar!  



My son's school's mascot is a Cougar, and today was Cougar Day, basically a field day for the kids.  Lucas acted up at every opportunity: running onto the field during crab soccer, stealing hula hoops from the girls, throwing tantrums when I picked him…

Beach Baby Shower Theme

With warmer weather just around the corner the beach baby shower theme is perfect for the season.  We absolutely love the surf baby shower theme for both boys and girls! It is casual and fun, great for a couple’s shower or a mommy-to-be who loves the beach.  Turn your home or backyard into a tropical oasis and give the mom-to-be a relaxing day at the beach.  Is your guest list ready to hang ten?

If it’s found at the beach, it can be included in the beach themed baby…

My Home Away From Home

My family has always been cottage-goers.  Growing up, a few relatives had cottages, but one in particular had very special memories, and always felt like home.

My Aunt and Uncle owned a small cottage on a quiet little bay.  It wasn't anything extravagant, but I have some of the best memories of my childhood from up there.  This cottage sat on a small cliff with about 50 stairs…

How to Be Summer Ready

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.



"OK, everyone outside."

"Wait, where's your hat?"

"Do you have sunblock on yet?"

"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"

"Who used the sunblock last?!"



I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…
