dipping my toes back into the water..

You know I couldn’t stay away long….from style, styling, and new products, that is. But DO NOT PANIC. I am not going back to the mall. I am still part owner of my family business and working from home and watching my kids grow. BUT, I need to be a part of something creative and […]

on the cusp

Memorial Day weekend is such a tease. What I’m learning from my work from home role and also as the kids get older is that waiting for the end of the school year is like waiting for nail polish to dry if you are painting your nails outside in 98 degree humid July heat. It […]

Phase 3…because tween is a stupid word

A while back, like while potty training my 2nd child, I posted something on Facebook to the effect of:  “Potty training sucks. And to all you moms who tell me I will miss this someday I say…I will NEVER miss the poop. ” Now, While I don’t exactly miss the poop, The idea of being in […]

march madness

Well, since my Disney Coma I’ve been skitzing out on posting anything. First of all, winter is very uninspiring to me personally, and I don’t really ever want to spread my negativity or bad mood on this blog. You’re welcome. We finally got away to celebrate both 40th b-days (a year later because of last […]

Disney Coma

That’s me this week. There is no way to go to Disney World for 7 days and REALLY do Disney with 10 people (6 adults and 4 kids), without returning and morphing into a coma-like, alternate reality state. Like, wait, that’s not real life down there in Orlando? Dammit. Nope it’s not. But if you […]

December Rewind

No matter who you talk to every year about this time (Christmas Eve, Eve), everyone’s all “I can’t believe Christmas is in 2 days”! Yep. People, I hate to burst your bubble but it’s the same day every year. Small talk is not my fav, but I digress. I made a conscious decision to enjoy […]

Why don’t my freaking pants fit?

Probably because I haven’t worn anything with a zipper or buttons in over 4 months? I’m gonna say that. Summer is for abundant consumption if you’re a summer person. Beach and boat snacks, al fresco lunches, DAY DRINKING, and let’s not discount night drinking, and finally lots of burgers and dogs. So now after all […]

a few days on the other side of crazy

Stay-cation. ha. For the working mom this can mean one of 2 things. Taking off when the kids are off from school in order to spend time with them, take some day trips, or whatever. This usually happens over the summer for me and towards the beginning of the school year. The second reason for […]
