WAHM: Everything You Need to Know About Becoming A Work-From-Home-Parent

Some of you already know this – but I am a full time work from home mom. I do quite a bit of freelance writing and marketing consulting – and my baby boy gets to actually be home with me two days a week. It’s like the best of both worlds – and I love it.For many reasons, a daily office environment just isn’t for me. I’m really efficient – and when you’re graded on billable hours, like many agencies are, this actually hurts my performance reports. I don’t do office politics – I believe that…See More

Fit Mama: Today I Took the Pluge – I Bought a Fancy Heart Rate Monitor

This past week has been an emotional roller coaster, for a lot of reasons. When my life is emotional, I like to do a lot of cardio. I don’t know why – it just works out that way.When I feel like doing more of a particular exercise – circuits vs. lifting vs. cardio – I go with it. I figure that if my body feels like it’s not getting enough of a particular…See More

Beauty Video: The Daily Face

For Christmas, my parents got us a GoPro camera. I’ve been meaning to use it a million times since then, but it took me a while to get all of the needed accessories and figure out how to actually use it. I’m guessing that the intent was for us to use it with the little guy. But for my first “real” video, I’m giving all of you mommies something a little different: a quick makeup tutorial. I get lots of messages from ya’ll saying you don’t have time for make up or that you don’t know how to wear…See More

Weird Homeschoolers

When folks see me out and about, with the five Minions in tow, they aren’t horribly surprised to discover I’m also ‘one of those weird homeschool people’.I’ve been known to correct them. Yeah, I’m weird, but that existed long before our decision to homeschool.I’d started considering homeschooling when my son, now nine, was a toddler. I knew, that unless aliens came down and fried his brain, he was the kind of kid teachers get medicated over.Or, I’d be getting letters home about medicating…See More

Baby loss, three months later.

This weekend marked three months since we lost our sweet baby girl. Three months that flew by in an instant, yet left me feeling about thirty years older. It’s like that old saying – the days pass slowly but the weeks go by so quickly.Knowing that a week from Tuesday, she was supposed to be born. That’s when her c-section was scheduled for, you know. Tuesday August 19 at 9:30 AM. It’s the day that’s staring me in the face right now. Part of me feels like getting over that hump is like the key…See More

Blogging Better: Editorial Calendar Secrets

Posted on August 28, 2014 at 8:44am 0 Comments

So you’ve heard about this thing called an “editorial calendar.” But if you don’t work in marketing, you might not know what the heck I’m talking about. And no matter what field you work in, figuring out how to create an editorial calendar that you’ll actually use can be a challenge. So what gives?

Why they work

Editorial calendars are one of my favorite ways to keep my work organized, especially as it pertains to my blog. It’s a place where I can keep…

Thankful.

Days like today make me so thankful.

This morning, Ricky played while mommy was productive. We went for a bike ride, had lunch on the deck and played in the sandbox. We went to the park and for a long walk with our friends. And now he’s napping – and I can work again.

I am so blessed to be able to spend so much of my time with him. That I can work from home and still take care of him at the same time – not every day, but some days. That I can feel fulfilled in my career AND as…

Toddler Life: What Goes on in MY House Every Morning

Posted on August 27, 2014 at 10:47am 0 Comments

Before I was married with a toddler, there are certain things that I really never pictured myself saying. In fact, if my former self would have heard some of the things that go on in my house just between the hours of 5:30 AM and 7:30 AM, I probably wouldn’t have believed that this would be my life in a few years.

Does this happen at your house? Here are some of my faves:

Please don’t eat the lotion. Ricky! Don’t eat the lotion! 

For some reason, my child…

A couple of weeks ago, Macmillan Kids send little Ricky a fun new book to read: Little Elliot, Big City. I really didn’t know much about it until we got it – and it’s actually really cute!

Little Elliot is a stuffed elephant living in the middle of New York City. He leads a quiet little life amid the hustle and bustle of the streets, where he feels too little…
