Comfort List for a Sick Day

Unfortunately, during this time of the year we are often surrounded by what I call "the sickies". It's when you start hearing all the coughing & sniffling around you. People start calling in sick & kids stay home from school. For Moms it is a dreaded time because we are in constant fear whatever "bug" is going around is going to hit our kids & then ultimately the whole household--and naturally the matriarch nurturers of the family simply don't have the time to lay around being…

My Favorite Looks from Golden Globes 2016

Did you catch the Golden Globes this year? I'm a huge celebrity watcher & pop culture junkie and one of my favorite things about these shows is the fashion. I loved some of the selections this year. Kudos to the stylists who I know work super hard on their craft. I'm well aware that my choices are on many people's "worst dressed" list. What can I say? Fashion is subjective. I like what I like. Here are the top 3 of my favorite stand-outs.…

Common Core is Not This Mom's Enemy

...When this whole argument regarding the Common Core came up, I chose to stay out of it because I just didn't feel I had enough information to form an opinion. And for all intents and purposes, I'm still staying out of it. The only thing I am armed with is the trust in my children's educators (especially when they switched to a new school) and the belief that my children have a grasp and an understanding of what is being taught to them. If I didn't have those assurances, who knows where I'd…

And yet more Moisturizing Options!

In the article titled 26 Tiny Things You Need To Start Doing For Yourself This Year, the first item it states is "Use good quality moisturizer on your face every morning, every night, or, if you live in a dry, cold climate, both". Great advice, of course. But I'll take it even further...just use moisturizer on your skin, period. With that philosophy in mind, I'm always up to sample any and all products that claim to help my skin escape the dreaded villain--flaky dry skin.…

Our Walt Disney World Florida Experience (Repost)

Hi! This is a repost originally posted in January of 2015 of just some of our memories of our Orlando, Florida vacation...

When I mentioned to a few people that we were going to Orlando, Florida, the general response was, “Disney?” Although there are so many other attractions in Orlando, WDW is the main iconic attraction. The main attractions, not counting the Hotel Resorts and the Waterparks, are four theme parks: Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Epcot.…

Precious Christmas Memories 2015

It's been a very Blessed year and I'm beyond grateful that we were granted a beautiful Christmas celebrating with the special people in our lives. I've had numerous conversations with my children about privileges and being grateful for everything they have--most especially the gift of life, love & health! Above all things, it's our unity that I'm so thankful for! It is the true meaning of Christmas & I wish everyone peace: mentally and physically, to live life to its true potential…

What? Chocolate Tamales. Yup!

I do the bulk of my shopping at my local franchise supermarket. But I make a Trader Joe's run about once a week to pick up novelty food items & seasonal treats. Recently, with my boys and husband in tow, we made our usual run combing through the aisles when my 12-year-old spots "Chocolate Raspberry Tamales".

A Contact Lens Wearer Challenge!

I've been wearing glasses since the 4th grade and contact lenses since I was a sophomore in high school. It's safe to say that I've used my fair share of contact lens solutions over the years. When I first transitioned to contact lenses (in the year that shall not be named), taking care of them was a multi-step process. There was enzyme cleaning, rinsing, storing, then rinsing again. Over the years, many products have been developed to make things a lot easier and simpler. Enter the…
