Memorial Day Weekend! What did you do?

We do hope that you've taken this holiday to spend some much-needed time with the family. On our end, it's a welcome respite from the insanity of over-scheduled kids and in working at warped speed.

Tell us- how did you choose to spend your long weekend? We'd love to hear!

My Boy Likes to Party All the Time

The calendar is full this time of year with get-togethers, BBQ’s, and potlucks. This has been a great opportunity for Parker to show us his “party style.” We are quickly discovering that Parker is a bit of a party animal. It is entertaining, kind of funny, but mostly scary.

I found myself telling my husband with worry in my voice, “Oh dear Lord, he is a SENSATION SEEKER. God help us.”

My husband said, “Yup.”

Then we watched in horror as Parker ran around people in… Continue

My Bad

Can you imagine saying something mean to that cute face? I did and it didn’t feel good.

Mornings around our house are always hectic. The other day, my five-year-old woke up excited that the long awaited kindergarten trip to the fire station had arrived. The best part – I was going along as a classroom volunteer. She is a real mama’s girl, so that was a pretty big deal in her…

Munchhausen Much?

I wonder what the receptionists thought as I walked out the pediatrician’s office today.

Perhaps, “We’ll see her again in a week!”

Or, “She’s not going to have another child, is she?”

Or, “Hmmm. Munchhausen?”

Or most likely, “Hey, pull her file from the family doctor and see if that woman gets to take any anxiety medication!”

Well, whatever. Think what they must, but I simply cannot resist taking Parker in for an ear infection check about once a… Continue

Laser Hair Removal-What You Need to Know...

As summer is upon us, one of the most common non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed today is laser hair removal. There are several factors you need to consider when choosing a provider who will perform these services. As more medi spas are popping up, it is especially important to understand the technology, cost, procedure, as well as the qualifications of the person performing the procedure.

Laser hair removal used a highly focused beam of light, either in the form of…

Opening my heart and moving on...

It's been 7 1/2 years since I walked out of our door that night... 7.5 years since I thought I made the decision, once and for all to leave. Little did I know that I would question that decision a million times, have an attempt by him to end my life and then I attempted to reconcile once. When I left that night I couldn't have imagined all that would go through my mind... to this day.

I have always loved to write, my life has always been an open book. I recently started a blog aimed…

If Attitudes Were Contagious, Mine Could Kill You

Ok, people. Watch out. I am feeling surly. I apologize ahead of time. There is a lot on my mind, and I cannot pull a positive, witty anecdote out of my ass. Instead, I’d like to try something called, “I’d rather put a cigarette out in my eye than. . .” Get the idea? Ok, here goes.


-Listen to whining – from my child, any child, all adults, and basically any living thing in the vicinity

-Beat a dead horse. And then listen… Continue

I'm so Blessed

OK....being a Mom does not have to, nor should it, make a difference in

being successful with this business. In fact, this business is the best

way to be a Mom. The vehicle is right here.

So, how does one do it? Well, I will be honest...when I got started, I

had no idea what I was doing, thank God I had an awesome support team

and training to guide me every step of the way. So...I got started

full-force and never looked back.

Marissa was 4, Anthony… Continue

Children Can Give Us Purpose and Direction

Before getting pregnant and having my daughter Sarah, I often told my husband how I looked forward to what parenting could provide for me, including a sense of self and new purpose. At the time this made perfect sense, wanting to feel value in something more than me and that I could put much of my attention towards.

Now, many years later, and the mother of a toddler, I have realized that my daughter has given me a gift much greater than the love I…
