The funny thing about Homegoods…

….and agreeing to help a friend pick out curtains, is that it can go one of two ways:  Boring, indecisive, wishy-washy and tears of frustration OR you pick the right friend, incorporate wine and have a few laughs and get something accomplished all at the same time. I get this text one day… “Nice”, I […]

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 […]

No serious Halloween decor yet…You know I don’t “do” Halloween. Although this year I am gonna amp it up a […]

How to refinish a closet in 2 years and a big girl room in 1 week.

So it may snow in July because I finished my “closet”. Truth is it could very well snow because we did just have a tornado in South Jersey. But I digress. So this closet project of mine stems from the fact that I use one of the four bedrooms in our house as my closet. […]

babe, where’d you put the coffee table?

Last Friday night to Saturday afternoon: The hubs was going fishing. Soccer for the little one was cancelled Saturday am. Nothing to do but B-day party at 4pm for the oldest. There hasn’t been a Friday night/ Saturday combo of no plans pretty much since Easter. That meant I had 22 hours. Kids needed a day to […]
