I am spoiled. For several years I worked with my husband at the same company, and now we work only a few blocks apart. This means that I am used to being able to have lunch with my wonderful husband on a frequent basis and that neither of us has to go out of our way to spend time together in the middle of the day.…Continue

While spending some time wandering on the internet, I came across this picture on Mseffie.com. At first glance, I noticed that they are using scrabble pieces and a globe to get their message across. Cute. Artsy. I really enjoy the antique effect they used to bring the picture together. However, before I could click on to another page, the message caught my attention again. Rather than the letters that spelled "Go There," I saw "Just Go Already!"
How many times have…Continue

Some days I actually manage to get on top of all the craziness of life and check enough things off the to-do list that I feel accomplished and able to relax. Some days Josiah is sweet and cooperative, I am focused and ambitious, and we have a really great day.
That was Tuesday. I’d managed to…Continue

Establishing a love of reading can be tricky sometimes. Children who would rather run around and be active physically may not see the "fun" in exploring through a story... at first. The key is to choose books that speaks specifically to their interest and personality. Allow them to select which books stand out to them - superheroes, all things locomotives, comedies, comics, holiday themed, etc. As they become excited about what they're reading, they'll want to do it more! Go a step further…Continue

I have several problems with taking pictures on my cell phone.
The first problem is with my son. Every time I take out my phone to take a picture of him, he starts to pose and smile in an ultra cheesy way instead of the natural way he was smiling a few seconds earlier.…

Camping isn't on our list of trips for this year (maybe next year), but I still wanted to introduce my kids to one of the great camping experiences ever... S'mores! There's just something about the ooey, gooey, stickiness of the marshmallows and the sweet, smooth chocolate that is enough for me to deem camping as one adventure that everyone must try... at least once in their life. (Of course, there is the beauty of nature and all the creatures you may not normally see, but I'm speaking…Continue

Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack... Repeat. There are days when I’m not exciting about having to prepare another meal. Eating is important, I know, but its nice to have a break sometimes... even if its only for one meal. This is mini pizza recipe is one that the kids can completely make themselves! All you have to do is place it in the oven, set the timer, and take it out!…Continue

One of the quickest healthiest breakfasts you can throw together. A dish of lovely creamy porridge. You can either do it the proper way in a pan and simmer and stir, you can make it in minutes in the microwave or you can go instant with a dish of Ready brek. Whichever way you choose it’s…Continue

Recently I had the privilege of taking Illy out on a date. We'd been talking about it for a while and were long past due for an outing, but there always seemed to be something else going. "Dates" don't always have to be a big outing, in fact, some of our dates have been a sweet treat and girlie movie. No BOYS allowed! ;) This time, however, I wanted to do something special and…Continue
