So last Sunday around 10am, Hunky Hubs, J myster and I headed out on the open road for our much needed vacation. Destination San Diego! Hunky Hubs thought about a month back that we should do something really nice, fun and relaxing for ourselves before the baby came because we really didn't know… Continue

If you had no idea I was on vacation this week, then I did a good job at scheduling my blog posts, tweets and facebook updates. Truth be told, me, my adorable son and amazing husband spent a lovely week in San Diego living it up before our second edition to the family comes in November/December. We had a blast and I took over 800 pics. We got so much… Continue

I am six months pregnant! Wow! Just September October and November to go. Baby is due early December and while when you think about Christmas in August, it seems so far away, when you think about it in months left, it doesn't seem that far away. But when you think about it in uncomfortable nights sleeping on the couch, sciatica, indigestion, just odd aches and pains and fatigue, the three months left seems like a million years!…

Man after the week I have had, with wiping butts, and snotty nosed toddlers, I really really could use a vacation. A day away from everything!! When it comes to vacations, I love to have things that are all inclusive. RESORTS! Oh yes baby! A resort that includes the works! Kalahari Resorts at Sandusky
is just that, and its something the whole family will enjoy.
This isn't just a spa resort,… Continue

I remember as a child lying in my room with my covers up to my chin, just staring around at the darkness. I was afraid of the dark for a long long time. Not sure what prompted the monsters in the dark fear, but it was there and still to this day, if I watch a scary movie, my mind moves to the worst possible scenario when I'm turning out the lights for the night.
My son, two, hasn't ever been afraid of anything. Not a lot of toddlers are unless something tells them to be afraid. Many… Continue

Today I turn 30! Its kind of weird not being twenty something. It seems like just yesterday I was sitting outside on the football field at my high school graduation listening to commencement speeches and wondering what the next ten years had to offer. What did college have to offer? Where would I go? What would I be when I grew up? I only hoped that by the age of 30 I would be well established in a career with my own family, but those things were so hard to think of at that time. I was excited… Continue

Before my son was a year of age we were really into making sure the foods he ate and at least a good portion of the foods I ate were organic, but slowly overtime when we had to put a crunch on our grocery budget I found that my coupon clipping and sale shopping helped stretch the food in the house, and to be honest I rarely buy an item unless it is onsale and I can also use a coupon with it. I have learned to save about 40% every time I go grocery shopping. But lets be honest, being a member of… Continue

Imagine a cell phone company that didn't have contracts, hidden fees, cancelation fees and other miscellaneous charges? Oh that would be a dream right? Well its not exactly a dream, it really does exist. No I'm not talking about pre-paid phones here, I'm talking about Straight Talk.
Straight talk is a cell phone company that offers the best plans for those that just use their phones for talking, texting and light web surfing. If you aren't into all the aps and playing Angry Birds for hours… Continue

I love my son dearly. But sometimes I have to really really hold my breathe because he really really tries my patience. We all know toddler boys love to wrestle and be physically active. I get that and if this mom could do it at 5 months pregnant, I would, but now I have to teach my toddler son to be gentle around the baby bump. He's not really comprehending yet that there is a baby in there. Hunky Hubs and I talk about it and we've shown him pictures of mommy when she was pregnant with him and… Continue

I am half baked. Yes I am. But no not the "I had way too much pot and I'm in a puffy magic dragon hangover" kind of way. I'm "half baked" in the I am half way done with this pregnancy, over half way actually and I am thankful. Last Friday we had our anatomy scan of the little bundle of joy growing inside me and we are so pleased baby is doing well and seems healthy.…

Last weekend I got the most amazing pregnancy gift ever! I got a pregnancy pillow! Oh yes, it is amazing. A couple week's before that I got a body pillow, but it just didn't help as much and every time I had to turn over, I had to haul the body pillow to the other side. I'm a turner in the middle of the night, especially with sciatica. So having my friend give me this wonderful amazing pillow really has helped me sleep better.…
