Live a Greener Life With Sustainable, Reusable Water Bottles and Coffee Cups

I am trying to do my part to live a greener life. I am in no way an expert in living a more sustainable lifestyle, but I am doing little things that make a difference. I am already a stickler when it comes to recycling. My family and I no longer buy water in plastic bottles. Instead we filter our tap water and…

a.k.a "Writer"

Wednesday night I went to the Premiere of the Closer(avail on TNT) in Manhattan at the bar Ultra. I was so close to not going for a few reasons. At the last minute I was able to get a babysitter and meet my DH in Manhattan.







FYI - I love living so close to the city that I can just JET in if I choose to. Ideally, I think you all know by now I am a Manhattanite deep in my heart and would L-O-V-E to live in some gorgeous townhouse on the Upper West side, Greenwich Village, or… Continue

The Coupon Fairy

The Coupon Fairy has amassed another large collection of clipped coupons from the Sunday newspapers. This set is so large that it will be split in two and each set will have at least 100 coupons. Now, many of these coupons expire at the end of the month so the Coupon Fairy wants to mail these out A.S.A.P.! She enjoys helping others save money and asks that you also pass on the coupons that you will not use. Just go to:… Continue

Edward and Bella: True Love or True Lust?

Sparked by a recent conversation with my friend Hillary, I have decided I need to post my thoughts about a certain series of novels written by Stephenie Meyer. Particularly the relationship between one, Bella, and the object of her affection. The supposedly uber hot vampire, Edward.



Believe me when I say Edward has been well cast in the movie which is scheduled for release in December of this year. I thought Robert Pattinson was exceedingly… Continue

Breast is Best

If you’re a mom, you have more than likely heard the above statement.

And as a mom you’ve made a choice, to either breastfeed/ebf or formula feed. Now granted, I believe breastmilk is the best food for baby. It’s how God engineered feeding to be. He created boobs, not formula, BUT I don’t believe this makes formula a wrong choice.

I entered the mothering world thinking that there was a right choice and a wrong choice in feeding. But that’s just not how it is. Formula… Continue

The not so nice Mama

“Go and play your video game,” says Nice Mama to her sons. “I’m going to clean your room for you today.”



“Oh cool! Thanks,” says one son, giving mama a hug, “You’re a nice Mama.”



What he doesn’t realize is that Nice Mama, is really, Mama with Ulterior Motive, in disguise. She smiles as she sends them on their merry way, 13 gallon trash bag clenched in the fist behind her back. She walks backwards down the hall, into their bedroom and bolts the… Continue

Mommy Brain

The Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of Mommy Brain announced its latest guidelines just yesterday, stating that “Not all Mommy Brain, is the same.”



This is only the first of hopefully many steps that will be taken to help treat Mommy Brain, which was officially diagnosed last Monday. But mothers have felt the symptoms and their families have experienced the effects of Mommy Brain for centuries.



“I knew something was different… Continue

Misconception

I walked into the room with my chin tilted down trying to steal an inconspicuous glance at my stomach. Sucked in? Check. The room was abuzz with chatter, broken momentarily by smiles and greetings directed at me. I gave my cautious, tight lipped half smile in return and quickly found a seat in the emptiest corner of the room. I watched women daintily adding food to their plates. A sprinkling of pita chips here, a dollop of hummus there, a thin slice of pumpkin cake layered with cream cheese… Continue

An Introduction to my family!

Hi there, my name is Tammy. I thought I’d introduce you to our family. We live in sunny Florida. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, Kevin and six wonderful children. Our first three children are boys: Josh (15), Garitson (11) and Nathan (9) then came the girls: Miranda (7), Abbie (6) and Kiera (2). I was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant with Kiera. It was a rough ride but she was born healthy despite everything. Six days after she was induced early I began four months of chemo,… Continue

oh this is not good!

My sweet Lab dog - Mali - is 12 and has all the typical old lab issues and is now peeing in the house. Well, I think it is him... it is not likely to be the three year old lab. Oh I don't want to call this one. The Shepherd was hard when it was time to put him down but it was obvious, he was in pain and he bit a dog. How long before he bit a child? But the Lab? He is just old... but still sweet. But I can't handle mopping every morning for very long...

Babies and Sunscreen

Babyies and Sunscreen...

If you are a new mother and have a need to be in the sun this summer with your child you have probably noticed that every sunscreen you pick up is approved by the FDA for children over 6 months.



As an Arbonne consultant I have a client with 3 children who asked me last summer about the ABC Sunscreen and could it be used on her infant. When I called the product support team I received an interesting answer, paraphrased here:



The FDA places the… Continue

Blog Attempt #2

So, I kept thinking about what sort of witty or insightful things I could write about... how my little blog space could change the world and improve life for everyone fortunate enough to read my musings... and then when I stopped laughing at myself for being lame I figured I would just write whatever popped into my head at the moment and hope for the best.. so thats what you find, no solution to world peace, no answer as to the meaning of life.... just me, barfing my brain so to… Continue

First blog (ta ta TAAAAAAA)

Well this is my initial-test blog... I am not sure at all what I am doing, but if it sucks I can just delete it right?



Work is the same thing... day in and day out... because of current circumstances I am looking for a second job... nothing hard or with any sort of career goal in mind... just something to bring in a little extra cabbage.. I think it will be hard but in the end I think it will be worth it if for no other reason than to show my husband I am trying to make amends for… Continue

Summer Vacation -- Can we really have fun?

Fotolia_552062_S.jpg



Yes, you can. Here's how:



Vacation travel can feel like a long awaited, hard-earned reprieve from everyday demands. Expectations can be high. “We’re going to have a good time, damn it!!”



Good times and a successful vacation are possible especially if you approach planning mindfully. Understand that children express their needs through their behaviors.



When you adapt your plans by taking into account your children’s development, temperament,… Continue

Who Cooks in the Summer?

Who actually cooks in the summer? Come on, fess up. Who actually pulls out a complicated casserole recipe and goes to town? Around here it's more like glance at the clock around 7:34 pm, pull out a frozen chicken breast, thaw it out under hot tap water, shake some salt at it and throw it on the grill. The sides may include prepackaged applesauce and if we're lucky a piece of toast. And that is a meal with some thought involved, mostly it's been buttered noodles with a side of big, fat… Continue

Favorite Children's Books Anyone?
