New Year, New Dreams

Hello! And welcome to 2018! It’s a new year to learn, grow, and be amazing! Last year I blogged about resolving not to have resolutions, but instead have goals and make a plan to accomplish them. I set forth several goals and as much as I would love to tell you that I have accomplished […]

Steps for Dealing with Disappointment

I was listening to the radio the other day and the hosts were talking about what they wished they could still get away with as adults that they could as kids. One host responded that he wished he could still get away with throwing temper tantrums. And really, don’t we all? I mean, who hasn’t […]

Missing respect

Missing Respect

Every now and then I see the smile. You know the one that you get from another parent when your kid is being good, I mean really good, and having a respectful conversation in public. My son will speak to everyone like they are family. From running up to Police Officers to give them high […]

How to Take on Life

Listen, we have all done it. I mean, we are all moms here, right? You look at that fancy mom, you know the one…hair fixed, makeup on, perfectly dressed children who would never dare to spit up on her, and she looks like she has it all under control and we think to ourselves, “How […]

Everyday I wake up planning to go for a run. Having just completed my first half-marathon a few weeks ago, I am now considered a runner. I know my body needs exercise, but my brain can’t quite handle it. I know I should do it first thing in the morning, yet I just can’t bring […]

Resolutions Revolution

Resolutions Revolution

Every year I create a list of resolutions for myself and every year I’m disappointed by February. Since we are now a few weeks into 2017, I wonder, how are you faring? Me…I’m doing ok. I have decided to stop with the “only one piece of chocolate a week or run every day” types of […]

Redecorating 101

We all do it. We walk into our friend’s homes for holiday parties and we start stressing. Their house is full of Christmas cheer and beautiful furnishings and our house…. just isn’t. They have curtains and blinds hung on every window and rugs that are all the right color and size. It is easy to get […]
