How is your New Year Eve going everyone? The kids and I have really enjoyed the snow that has fallen today and so glad that it was a decent amount at that. We really need the moisture here in Kansas! TJ built his first snowman and it was the first time for Talia to really get to have fun playing in the snow (she tried this weekend but was not enough today was a blast…Continue

Hypnobirthing is another child birthing method that was discovered in 1944 by obstetrician Dr. Grantly Dick-Read. He felt that women could have a safe, easy, relaxed child birth experience by using hypnosis during child birth. Many women often times will tense up when their contractions start becoming unbearable; instead, of working with their body using breathing and relaxation techniques.

Let me just start by saying, whoever thought that taking a road trip when your 8 months pregnant… wait, no. I should really start by saying how sweet it was that my hubby took the time to plan a little family getaway after the holidays. In all honesty, it was an awesome idea; one I would normally love if I weren’t 8 months pregnant with a God awful back problem. I knew this would be quite an adventure as it was, taking 2 toddlers and a psycho dog to the mountains. Now…Continue

After a long break, I decided to do away with the internet for a year to cut expenses,I am back. In this last year so many things have changed and I shall say it may be a little rough at times but it is slowly getting better and more enjoyable.
Things that have happened in this last year during my break from a computer:

There is nothing like working in the restaurant industry to make you doubt the sanity and rationalizing abilities of our species.
Like yesterday, when I had a woman ask for a new wine glass because her glass smelled funny. Let me repeat that. The GLASS SMELLED FUNNY. The wine was fine, but man that cup had to go.
It takes a certain type of crazy to deal with people like that. Luckily I seem to have it covered.

I can’t believe that tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. It literally seems like it was just weeks ago that we brought in 2012. The year went by so fast and life changed in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast, in fact, that I don’t even have any resolutions for the New Year – other than to just enjoy life as it comes!
We’re still recovering from Christmas. If you could see what my house looks like right now, you would probably be…Continue

Sunday arrives. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to tell my family or not. I just don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, let me be honest, my younger sister and my younger brother already know. So basically who’s left to tell are my older sister and older brother and my parents. My older brother won’t be there today, and my older sister is easy going and will probably be excited. She loves babies. My parents are my concern. I have no idea what reaction to expect from them. And…Continue

Save Those Instructions!
All those wonderful toys, gadgets, and baby furniture come with instructions. Instead of shoving them in a drawer, keep them handy in plastic sleeves in a binder. You would be surprised at home many times you may reference those manuals. Plus, if you…

On Thursday we decided to take Jacob out for a walk. He was going a little bit stir crazy from being indoors. The weather was not exactly lovely, so we got suitably dressed and headed out.
Steve decided that he wanted to go to St. Catherine's Hill. We had never been there before, but you can see it plainly from the M3 when driving towards Winchester from the south. It looks huge from the road

My journey started about 3 years ago. We found out we were pregnant and I went into overdrive trying to clean up my diet…no soda, more water, less Chipotle. Well I wasn’t able to give up Chipotle lol, but the fact remains I had a growing baby to take care of in my belly and I wanted to cook the best quality food for my family. Read More
