For the First Time

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

Recipe for a Nourishing Bath

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.…

W/W Palm Springs Weekend!!

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

Tweet Up Event with Suze Orman

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

Vacation Madness

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

reusing my bags and my humour!

Well it is day two of recycling week and my pledge is to reuse my shopping bags. It is going very well, i have not used one plastic bag! I took my big Disney reusable bags with me to the trafford centre to get 3year old and 2year old's birthday presents.



I bough a basket full and when i got to the till and produced my re usable bag the lady was astounded she said 'did you know that you are the first person in a very long time that has used their own bags?' I was shocked and realised… Continue

A lesson about the past

I think I have finally realized, after a lifetime of drama, that I cannot change my past. I can only examine it, honor it for what it was and move on to what is now.

Did it have to take so long to come to this? Most people, I believe, learn this at a much earlier age. Even my children know if something isn’t working, try a bit and then go on to the next thing. Me? Nope. I get stuck in the holding pattern of What ifs and If Onlys. I will take an incident or relationship and toss it around… Continue

Bloggers are my best friends!

I have been on a great mission to find unique bloggers to review and help their readers find my book. I have been receiving tons of emails and I have been following all the bloggers I meet on Twitter. Wow! Moms with blogs and Dads too, are amazing. They have such a voice. Not only with their kids, but with other Moms, Dads and anyone else they want to reach.



I have decided every blogger is my friend. And as friends, I hope to add to the blogosphere. I am embracing all aspects of it,… Continue

10 Healthy Ideas for you....

Here are 10 Healthy ideas to help you with your weight loss/fitness goals.



1. Move More

Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn. Anything that moves your limbs is not only a fitness tool, it's a stress buster. Think 'move' in small increments of time. It doesn't have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute aerobic dance… Continue

Starting Your Own Business: Ain't No Piece of Cake

Starting you own business might not be every working mom's dream but I am certain that it is an aspiration for many. The thought of a shorter commute, more time with the kids and not having to deal with an insensitive and pestering boss are one of the many perks that come to mind.



So, what does it take to start your own business? I am the farthest thing from an expert on the subject, I am in the process of starting my own business… Continue

In the event this were an actual emergency ...

Kids are demanding, impatient, and to them everything is important. They often lack the impulse control to prioritize their needs and think it appropriate to scream at the top of their lungs to convey their concerns. As I am writing this it occurs to me that it is not really just a kid thing, because that description could easily fit several of my bosses and maybe one or two past boyfriends. In any case, in our house we are working on patience and self control to try and deal with our needs… Continue

My Son - The Sun

Baby boy - forgive me while I stare a while,

Each day you give me new reasons to smile,

Chocolate covered face, torn kneed-pants,

You grew wayyy to fast, thats why I glance.

I remember when your were so tiny and small

Could do nothing for yourself at all,

But now you're ten, and tell me how "BIG" you are

No more Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!! ;o(



Now its football games, "Where is my guitar"

PSP, DS and video games of driving… Continue

Body After Baby: Run the Pounds Off

Monday is here again! Time to look back on the week and see how we've done, along with set new goals for the week ahead! I started running with Lucas last week and I'm loving it. We have some nice trails (smooth paths, really) around here and the weather has been so perfect. I also lost a pound, and I'm happy to say that I've lost all my baby weight! It's funny how your body really does change after having kids. I can say that I'm back to where I was weight wise pre-pregnancy, but I definately… Continue

31 weeks!

OK, so I am 31 weeks and 3 days! 8 weeks and 4 days to go has me thinking both "OMFG" and "YES!! FINALLY!". I can't believe how fast it's going! And weirdly, how slow also! My belly's growth has been slowing but I have been having more and more Braxton Hicks contractions lately. It's now a daily occurrence for me next to heartburn, swollen feet and deathly heat! OMG THE HEAT! It's sooo hot and humid and uncomfortable. Can't wait for tomorrow! THE BEACH!

Still no insane stretchmark. That… Continue

It's been a while....

Yes, it has been awhile since I sat down in front of my blogging page, and I have to say that I have missed it. I have been in a place where I don't think I could have blogged anything very positive, and I do like to be of a positive outlook. Life doesn't always seem to go that way. I try to take my problems to the cross, and teach my kids to do the same. Most always, our problems, in comparison to what our Saviour endured for us, seem so much smaller and most of the time, not as important as… Continue
