My September 2018 Favorites

September was pretty great! I love this time of year because the air gets crisper, sweaters are acceptable, but it is still relatively nice in the afternoons. I am so excited to share with you my September favorites! Just a word of warning, these next few months are going to be very holiday and weather… Continue reading My September 2018 Favorites

Tamagotchi Tama-got-to-go

I was a typical 90s kid and had many MANY Tamagotchi and Tamagotchi knockoffs.  When I say many, I had like three, but that's enough for a kid who barely knows how to take care of herself.  Do you want to know how all three ended?  Death.  Destruction.  Ignored until the battery died.  Lost under… Continue reading Tamagotchi Tama-got-to-go

Mother Nature – The most indecisive mother ever

This Winter has been the craziest we've had in a while.  If you recall, I had spent the first half of December wishing for a snow day.  Of course, it did not disappoint as we spent the majority of December and some of January trapped in our house because of all the snow and ice.… Continue reading Mother Nature – The most indecisive mother ever

Things I’ve Learned in 2016

Okay, so I know we are on the second day of 2017, but something had occurred to me while I was taking the day off yesterday (by taking the day off I mean cleaning, doing laundry, and putting away Christmas stuff).  I realized that I have learned a lot this past year.  I mean, I think… Continue reading Things I’ve Learned in 2016

Christmas Cards – A Dying Art?

When the Christmas season approaches I immediately start planning to send Christmas cards to my friends and family.  I painstakingly pick out the Christmas cards (get them at the Dollar Store!  12 Christmas cards for $1 with envelopes? Yes please), I choose the best themed stamps I can find, and, if I'm feeling especially ambitious,… Continue reading Christmas Cards – A Dying Art?


Elf on the Shelf Madness

I look forward to Christmas every year because the children in our daycare work extra hard to behave.  Of course, it's easy to say that Santa is watching and, from past experience, sometimes I have to reinforce this by calling Santa.  Fortunately, we recently heard about the Elf on the Shelf and it has saved… Continue reading Elf on the Shelf Madness


The Cup Controversy

It seems like it's that time of year again when the cup controversies start happening.  Don't get me wrong.  If something offends you, I feel like you should stand tall for what you believe in, but there are limits to that.  For instance, a cup.  You know, those containers that hold that hot coffee when… Continue reading The Cup Controversy


Never Ready to Go Back

I have had the pleasure of having a four day weekend.  Four days!  I have considered this a mini-vacation and even though I didn't do much of anything, it was nice to have some time off of work (even if I got cabin fever because I was trapped inside my house due to ice.) It… Continue reading Never Ready to Go Back

Mother Knows Best?

  Growing up, I always heard: "Mother knows best!" "Just wait until you get older." "You're going to turn out just like me." I was 100% certain that I was never going to turn out like my mom.  You see, when I was a teenager I thought, like most teenagers, my mom was strict, mean, and… Continue reading Mother Knows Best?
