Today's post is about my family. As you can see from the picture above, we are working together to improve our health. Not only does it help us physically but brings us closer as a family. As my children grow older, their dependence on me will lessen. I can only hope, that these type of family outings and activities will continue as they grow. I am so happy and thankful to have them apart of my life and so glad that we are working out together.… Continue

Sometimes I think the most difficult part of having a baby is not the sleepless nights, not the crying, not the birth….it is being away from her. I won’t lie, sometimes it is a needed break when I go to work or I travel and get to sleep past 5 am but not being with her outweighs any brief moment of pleasure I have. I do feel that I am a better mommy to her because I work though. That may not be the case for everyone but for a driven chick like me, someone who thrives on competition and her… Continue

I've not been at my best today.
After being pregnant for so long i have found it hard to know what feeling 'normal' is. For example:
Is getting upset over little things still OK? and I mean not just grumpy, full on tears
Is dwelling on bad thoughts and thinking it is the end of the world normal?
How about thinking that you don't actually think you know what your doing? Is this normal thinking if you're not… Continue

I have three teenage girls. If they asked me, and thankfully they have not, to allow them breast implants, I would be devastated. I would be devastated because I would know that the media machine had gotten to them. The standard of beauty so mercilessly imposed on girls and women is a mighty and relentless animal. A parent has a difficult challenge combating the messages in magazines and television and movies and music. There are lots of good reasons I could give my daughters for why a "boob… Continue

Just wanted to share this with others, these are coming from my Dad's garden.
A 2.5lb tomato and a 19" zucchini, anyone top that?
I hate to say it, but I'm sick of eating squash and tomatoes. LOL

Like many parents I'm always trying to avoid the amount of sugar my toddler gets. This includes juice filled with sugar. With how busy we are and constantly on the go, I'm finding it easy to throw juice boxes in the diaper bag. "Easy" loves them and they're so much easier. So when I found Wateroos I was stoked! It makes both baby and mommy happy! He gets his juice box and I get less sugar. Yeah! "Wateroos are fruit-flavored waters to be as delicious as possible without sugar or artificial… Continue

Lindsey and Michaela are going with their grandparents up to their cottage for almost three weeks. I am only going to have Adela! It will be like a vacation!
Maybe I can catch up on some blogging:)

"Do you want to come swimming with us?" my kids asked a few days ago on a beautiful, sunny, warm Seattle day (we do get those once in awhile).
It's astonishing how many thoughts can flit through someone's mind in the space of a couple of seconds.
I recently wrote an article titled, 'Bikini season almost here - are your daughters… Continue

I love romantic comedies or just comedies. It makes me happy. When I blog more about the movies I watch, you'll see why! :-) So, it's kind of strange by my standards to find me watching something like AUSTRALIA. I mean, AUSTRALIA?
Fine. I'll choke it up. It's Hugh Jackman, awright? Sheesh.....
But I love Nicole Kidman too - so, give me some credit here. It wasn't ENTIRELY a hormone-based decision.
So, I start watching and get enthralled with Jackman on a horse… Continue

Well, for a while now I have been having this uncomfortable "pain" in the evenings (yup, JUST the evening, and night, until I lay down). As if my boy is pushing a foot or knee or elbow at the same place constantly! upper right quadrant of my belly... And it feels like a bruise every time i touch it or cough or laugh etc...
I was wondering if any one is having this to? It's annoying more than anything. But it's been going on for over 2 months. Some days I don't have it but I do most of the… Continue

I got to see my sweet baby boy for the first time yesterday, had a 3D sonogram. I love that we now have this awesome technology. I understand what it's like to wait until they are born to see them, my other two are old enough that this was not a possibility when I was pregnant with them.
There are some special things about boys that don't happen with girls. They are taught to feel macho and tough and to not cry. More so by their dads than by their moms. In fact, we have a pink crib… Continue

I found a great DIY project for my kids for father's day at http://threewheelsturning.blogspot.com/.
I followed her instructions and the result was a big smile in my husband's face. Thanks!
Here is how we did it:
Poster paper (We cut three letters D, A, Y)
Wide picture frame (Found it in… Continue

For the times when it seems the world has gone astray, or just after a tough day, a bath is a wonderful nourishing space to retreat.
When my shower head broke this winter, I was forced to take baths daily for a bit. This "problem" ended up being a wonderful blessing in disguise.… Continue

The hubby and I just celebrated our 5 year Anniversary. We went to Palm Springs for the weekend... CHILDLESS! It was awesome and complete relaxation. When we showed up they told us they upgraded our room to the Presidential Suite! Ballers! Haha... seriously, it was super nice. We lounged poolside with yummy drinks, soaked up the sun, went out to a nice dinner, went to the spa, and lounged some more. We had the best time enjoying each other's company. I love what we have. I love our friendship.… Continue

Last Friday, I was invited to the first ever Tweet Up with Suze Orman, hosted by Avon.
Before providing details about the event, it has to be said that I felt like a Luddite or one of those grandparents who still doesn't have email. This was a tweet up event, right? So there I was, the only one without a computer or blackberry/IPhone to send in our twitter posts. All I had was a pad and pencil and my Motorola RAZR (remember when the RAZR was the coolest phone on the earth and cost… Continue

So the kids are out of school and it's time to hit the road. The summer marks the official start of the vacation season and it's time for fun. One of my favorite vacation destinations is Disney World. I absolutely love everything about the House of Mouse.
My daughter and I visit this magical world about every two years. Now when it's time to get ready for Disney, I plan extensively. I do an extremely amount of research on what are the best days… Continue
