Favorite Blogs

I had a small (and obvious) epiphany this evening: there are A LOT of Blogs out there. I started thinking about all of the blogs I read, how I stumbled upon them, many through Blogher or Mother’s Click, and I started to wonder what makes a blog one that makes you want to come back? [...]

According to About.com, Eddie Murphy has signed on to play Mr. Roarke in the movie remake of Fantasy Island. The role was originally played by Ricardo Montalban. I have to admit that I am pretty excited about this (stop laughing) as I was a huge fan of the show when I was a kid. There’s [...]

The Mother of All Days

The Mother of All Days

For me, yesterday was the perfect Mother’s Day. There was no candy, no flowers, no eating out at a restaurant – all of those things that you are told constitute the Mother’s Day celebration. Just a laid back afternoon hanging out with my parents, husband and 2 boys, celebrating with a cookout in the backyard. [...]

I was cleaning out my refrigerator this morning in anticipation of the new one that is being delivered on Tuesday and could not believe what I found in my freezer. Among the items that stood out?

Who Comes Up with the Stuff

Who Comes Up with the Stuff

As part of the renovation of our bathroom we are replacing both the sink and the toilet. Now I don’t have a lot of opinions when it comes to picking out a toilet other than it better flush and it better look ‘cute’ in the bathroom. To prepare myself for the challenge of picking out [...]

Ding, Dong, The Bathroom’s Gone

Ding, Dong, The Bathroom’s Gone

Hooray!! Demolition has begun on our main (guest/public) bathroom. Finally, after 4 years, the turquoise plastic walls have met their maker. I have to say that today is one of the happiest days of my life with relation to being a home owner. When we moved in 4 years ago the one thing I disliked [...]

Why Can’t We Make it Through Dinner

Why are children like small, ticking time bombs? Let me explain. On Wednesday my husband and I were both running late getting home from work so we decided it would be easiest to go out to eat for dinner. We picked up the boys from my mothers and headed over to Snappy Tomato pizza for [...]

It’s official. My best friend has finally sold her home and will be moving to Washington state in June to join her hubby. It sucks, to say the least. She came over last night with the kids and we had the best time. We cooked out (my husband did the grilling) and just shot the [...]

I was watching BAB watch Go, Diego, Go this morning and noticed something interesting (at least to me…). BAB really gets into the show. He responds to every request that Diego makes. Whether it’s clap your hands or jump up and down, BAB does what he is asked. Now his older brother, SMB, never responded [...]

Would this bother you?

Would this bother you?

My girlfriend and her husband just bought a house. When they went to fill out all of the loan paperwork they had my girlfriend, who is a very successful marketing gal, listed as a homemaker. At first when she saw this she thought it was a mistake. She has a full time job with an [...]
