I’ve never been the type to get into chain letters. In fact, anything along those lines normally has me running in fear: chain letters, friendship bread, daily encouragement notes, I have even been invited into a panty exchange. This is not my cup of tea. Don’t rely on me to keep up the “chain.” However, […]
“And it’s hard to love, there’s so much to hate Hanging on to hope, when there is no hope to speak of and the wounded skies above, say its much too late Well maybe we should all be Praying For Time“ It’s 2 am. My 3 month old son will not stop crying. He has […]
I joined a gym last week. It has childcare. And I can use it for up to two hours a day. TWO HOURS. I’m so distracted by all of the amenities that I may never actually workout. I mean there is a hair salon. I haven’t had my hair cut since May. Yeah, it’s September, […]
Every summer, my favorite thing to grow in the garden is basil. It’s easy to grow, nearly maintenance free, and because I grow two plants every year, it’s quite cost-effective, producing hundreds of dollars worth of basil every summer for me. I’m no master gardener, but I think there are four keys to growing healthy, high-yielding […]
It’s the hap-happiest season of all! That crazy song had it all wrong…parties for hosting, marshmallows for roasting and caroling out in the snow? No thank you. I’ll take pumpkin carving, cider sipping, leaf jumping, corn mazing any day of the week, hands down. And one of our absolute favorite traditions to do each year […]
Do you pack your kids’ lunches? It can feel hard to pack a healthy lunch every day. I’m a new school mom ,first year with a Kindergartner, and though we’ll let our daughter eat school lunch sometimes, I’m not overly impressed with the school lunch choices and how not-so-healthy the options seem to be, but […]
For a couple of years now I’ve been hearing friends talk about a pizza farm in Wisconsin selling made-to-order pies that are so good they were making the drive weekly just to get a little slice of heaven. A pizza farm? Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? We decided to check one out and see what the […]
We had the best time at our Moms Night Out at Pinstripes sponsored by Park Nicollet Women’s Center and Ascendancy Research! Our title sponsors were fantastic! Representatives from Park Nicollet Women’s Center were on site. They’ve recently recreated their center for women’s health that you have to check out – it’s now open at the Methodist Hospital campus in […]
Princess Mary Brynn You never know about them. How they’ll act at any given moment. Depends on which way the wind blows. She was so excited that Nana was coming over to take pictures of the princess dress she’d made. Her mom even put Lips on her. But when Nana came to the door the wind shifted […]
Toddlers. They’re adorable, they’re hilarious, and living with them is unlike any other roommate you’ll ever have. They make us laugh, they make us cry, they make us go crazy, and make us feel like the luckiest people on earth. One thing’s for sure: there’s never a dull moment when you’re a parent of a […]
Every night, I chew a baby asprin, swallow a few other pills/vitamins, then grab an ice pack, a princess band-aid (because that’s the only kind we have) and head to the couch. My husband gets a Lovenox shot and points to a spot on my belly – I ice, we wait, then it’s time for […]
It’s amazing to me how much room those tiny, little pieces of clothing our babies wear take up. While my son’s nursery closet started out nice and organized, with specified bins and drawers for each piece of clothing, and even closet clothing dividers, he has grown so fast in the past year that my carefully constructed organizational […]
I have two little bitty children. I work from home, where the itty bitty children and perhaps the UPS man are the only ones who see me. I also have deep dark circles under my eyes and want to look somewhat not deathly exhausted if we need to go to the store, etc. […]
Do you ever feel like you just want to get away? Maybe take a little break from the routine and have something to look forward to? Does planning a big trip seem too cumbersome and time consuming, not to mention expensive and not in the budget these days? If you answered yes to any of […]
