Come to the tropics with me!

How about if we have the tropics right at our fingertips?



Sound good?



I hope so because it appears that THE nail polish colors to be wearing the next coming months are... what else?



Tropical colors! We are talking sandy yellows, ocean blues, lavender purples... every and any color that makes you want to grab your frostiest drink, stick a paper umbrella in it, pull up a lounge chair, and make you believe that THIS is the life.…

Just breathe.

I don't know if the phrase "Just breathe." is inspiring to me or just flat out annoying. I don't mean to be a negative nellie, but is it just me or is that phrase a LOT easier said than done? My life has been nothing short of a whirlwind and it has been becoming more and more hectic each day that passes. My current goal? To try and make things as manageable as I can and just... well... breathe.

Hump Day- Yay!

I can't believe that it's already Wednesday even though I feel as though

my week is still just beginning! I was going to do Post It Note Tuesday

yesterday, but I became so busy I forgot and I wasn't in a bloggy mood

anyway. I think think this entry will be dedicated to random mentions,

thoughts, chatter, etc. I feel like I have so many updates that just

aren't long enough for an actual entry themselves so let's get caught

up! :)

Baby, it's cold outside...

December in New Jersey. Day 6.



The Winter Solstice is quickly approaching and it's only getting colder

outside. I've heard reports that other portions of the state have had

snow already, however I have not. Spring time seems to be an eternity

away and all I can do is wait. I'm still freezing. But I'm coping.

Perhaps anyone who finds this journal will be able to find it helpful

with their survival...…

Top 5 Annoying Christmas Songs

It's not even 3 whole days into December and, at least here in new

Jersey, Christmas songs have been playing on some radio stations

non-stop for about 2 whole weeks. Thanksgiving had barely been upon me

when I flipped on the radio and was bombarded with musical Christmas

jollies. Oh yes. Christmas has officially turned into one month rather

than just one day!



Two weeks is all it took for me to become so tired of Christmas music

and I'm no Scrooge!… Continue

Lipglossd Mom Vlog- 5 Minutes or less?

I had been toying around with this idea for a while but, as with

everything else, had been pushed to the back burner because- well... I

kept forgetting about it. As I do with so many other ideas. ;) I got

this idea from a dear friend of mine over at the Awfully Sweet Mommy's forum who said that she feels "frumpy" and "Who has time to be glam with two toddlers?". My answer to her was that ANYONE can.…

Life is insane and never catching up

I must have been kidding when I said that I would have more time to
blog, amongst other things, when my daughter started school. Life has
been anything BUT completely hectic. Wine, anyone?

Marker discrimination? Who knew??

All my daughter was required to bring with her when she started

Kindergarten, other than a backpack, was as listed on her class web

page:



A supply box labeled with your child's name

A pack of colored pencils

A pack of washable markers



The school will supply anything else that is needed.




Shortly before school started, Kevin had picked up her required

supplies. Since we had waited until last minute to pick up her things… Continue

Dressed Down Day? OK!

I am a full believer that how you present yourself physically is a

reflection of who you are and how you feel about yourself. I dress the

way I dress and I apply my make up because it makes me feel good. I also

dressed the way I dressed and applied my make up because I thought that

was what Kevin liked, too. I do ultimately dress myself FOR myself but I

have to say I do like dressing for my man, too. There is no man on this

planet that I care about looking good for… Continue

Back to School and Back to Blogging!

What a crazy, CRAZY month September has been! Almost 3 weeks ago, my daughter finally started Kindergarten and, can I just say, that I don't think I have ever been this busy, nor have I ever second guessed myself more in my life than I have now?



It all started with some busing issues (courtesy busing cut due to state budget cuts. Had to pay a $398 fee!), and then between fundraisers (more payouts. Eek!), and helping Raelyn adjust to going to school 5 days a week (never mind the BOTH… Continue

Apparently, August hasn't exactly been my month either.

So much for that serene feeling I always get in August! Although my back finally healed up, I'm now in the midst of a nasty head cold. Yuck! I've heard that quite a few people are having this right now so, if you're one of them, I feel your pain! This August cold, rainy weather is certainly not doing me any favors.…

Ow. Owie. OUCH!

At approximately 11AM on Saturday morning, I was casually walking through the living room when I spotted Raelyn's Littlest Pet Shop comforter sprawled across the floor. As I normally do, I bent down to pick it up and deftly threw it on the couch as I straightened up. I put one foot forward to continue my "stroll" when I was met with easily the most immense pain I've ever felt that went shooting through my lower back. I was doubled over in pain and literally sweating from the pain by the time I… Continue

Goodbye July!

Today is officially the last day of July. I can't believe this summer has been flying by so fast. It feels like yesterday I was getting out the summer clothes and planning Raelyn's birthday festivities. It feels like time is just passing me by! And has anyone else noticed that it seems like it's already starting to get dark out sooner? Apparently, a cold front is coming through as well so this last day of July is feeling more like mid-September. I'm not ready yet! …

Five Question Friday... according to my 5 year old.

It's been a while since I've done the Five Question Friday and figured it would be a good day to do so. This time, however, I thought it would be fun to have Raelyn answer the questions. I was right. Enjoy the Five Question Friday: Raelyn Edition!

It's good to be the King!

Or Queen. Although even in my fantasies, I only ever make it into the kingdom as far as a court jester. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I make it in as a royal loaf of bread.



However, as I mentioned in my last post, I did get the "One Lovely Blog" award from the always ever so thoughtful Marieke from mformommy.blogspot.com. Go visit her and say hi! She's one blogger… Continue
