I love supporting other businessnes, and most of these ones I'm a repeat customer for. I love their products and their customer service so much I really wanted to share them with all of my readers. Pluuuus I wanted to show someone all the cool stuff I'm getting, I'm dying keeping it all inside!

With so many people traveling to be with friends and family at this time of year, I've been bombarded with questions about traveling with cloth diapers. This is something I've done with a lot of success quite a few times. And with so much going on, the last thing any of us wants to be worrying about is…

Although this NY Times Best Seller doesn't exactly need another review, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Which I bought on a whim while I was on my break at work.
Unbearable Lightness is a story of a young woman's struggle to accept herself. Portia de Rossi (Ally Macbeal, Arrested Development, etc) bares all in this… Continue

So I know I have been totally MIA for a month. I'm terribly sorry, life just seems to hit you all at once. On top of extra school work, because of the Christmas season coming up I've had to take on more hours at work. Plus my husband went out of town, first for a doctors appointment, now he's been gone for almost two weeks doing some work on a house, leaving me to run everything myself. Continue

So, my almost two-year-old has shown a lot of interest in video games recently. Probably because they are on more than TV shows in our house. Yes, we are the dreaded gamer parents. I mean, it kind of had to happen, and there are more and more all the time as all of us 90's kids start having kids.
And I have to admit, I haven't really got to any of the hard stuff yet, like really explicit or violent games that she plays or wants to play but she's… Continue

As I approach a higher number of followers, I've actually been getting some advertising requests from some work-at-home-moms. I am flattered and excited moms would chose my humble little blog for some ad space AND be willing to pay for it.
I will have ad space available when I reach some more followers. And I want to make it clear that I will never charge for ad space.
See the thing is, I already have my own business, and I feel very strongly that I want to keep my blog as just my… Continue

I always feel like I jumped into this being an entrepreneur thing backwards. Because I started it up, then let it run, now I'm going to school to better my business. I guess it's kind of how I've done most things in my life, leap before I look!
Although, that's not always a bad thing, I learn quickly and there's no better training than hands-on,… Continue

One of the first inclinations I had that made me feel like a writer was when I found inspiration hitting me at the most inconvenient times. Like 2 o'clock in the morning for example. And you just can't shake the feeling that you have to get this out or it will be lost forever in the abyss of your mind. Continue
So I get up out of bed and drag myself to my computer and log in to Blogger (okay...and Facebook) and then I stare at a blank screen for 15 minutes.…

Some of my cool readers here may or may not know that I have a job outside the home, but I also run my own business. With the help of my hubby of course.
I am a member of a number of wahm groups online, and recently I've seen a lot of questions regarding review bloggers.
A review… Continue

Cloth diapering, like most parenting endeavors takes practice and time to get into a routine. Especially if you have been using disposable diapers for the first 6 months of your babies life. But it can be done! And I'll try to help you make it as painless as possible.… Continue

The most common reactions I get when I tell people I use cloth diapers are:
- "omg...good job, way too much work for me though!"
- "Eww, why?"
Which makes me wonder if I really am crazy for using them. I'm not going to go on and on about the benefits of using cloth diapers...in this… Continue

I don't know why, but we're barely into September and it feels like fall is already here. I love fall, it's my favorite season. I've got my birthday and my brown eyed girls birthday in the fall, you've got Thanksgiving and Halloween, and beautiful colors and new fashions!!
One thing I'm really excited for this fall is that I get to decorate our new-to-us house with super cool and fun crafts. Heck, I've almost drained my own bank account with fall (and some christmas) craft… Continue
