Tweet I just put my little crumb snatchers on the bus for the first day of school.  There were no tears.  In fact, they jumped out of the car and sprinted towards the doors of the bus.  Go figure.  My husband and I looked around at the other parents giving last minute pep talks, holding back tears and waving as the bus pulled off.  My kids did

Tweet After my boys graduated from those thick board books, we purchased tons of books with paper pages.  BAD mistake.  My boys would rip AT LEAST 3 pages per day and let’s face it, books are not cheap!  So this is what I started doing that not only SAVED me money, but also increased my boys’ library at a faster rate.

Pretty Mommies Skincare - Our Newest Product Line
June 21 2012, 0 Comments


Pregnancy mask, oily skin, freak acne breakouts, I had it all when I was pregnant with my little ones. Even now my skin gets a bit oily and I sometimes get funky little breakouts, so I am very critical when it comes to skincare products. Recently new skincare company Pretty Mommies contacted me about reviewing their products I have to admit, I was hesitant at first. I mean what makes them so different from the other brands that are out on the market, ALL formulated for and marketed towards pre [...]

House Plants, the New Shower Gift
June 01 2012, 0 Comments


While looking for new and interesting baby shower gifts, I recently came across a brand new company called Green Your Air. Their baby shower gifts are basically PLANTS! NASA has provided research that shows that plants can naturally filter dangerous chemicals that are found in your home. That "new smell" that emanates off of your baby's new crib, mattress and other furniture could be very harmful. And because many new homes are made with man-made materials and are sealed to be more energy ef [...]

I Found a Skin Care Line That Honestly Works - GIVEAWAY
May 22 2012, 40 Comments


I have been on a lifelong quest to find a regimen that works for my busy lifestyle. My experimentation has lead me from Clinique, BeautiControl, Clarisonic to Neutrogena, Olay...the list is endless. Like you, I have received little packet-sized samples of skin care products, but there is barely enough of a sample for one to realize a clear result. That is until I attended the Face 2 Face Event. Christina from Therapon gave each attendee a FULL skin care kit to try so that we could adequately [...]

Mother's Day Gifts From Small Children
May 08 2012, 0 Comments


Every year I rush around trying to purchase Mother's Day gifts for not just my mother, but my mother-in-law, and two grandmothers. I hand the gifts to my two boys to present to our "mothers", but I realized last year, there is a huge disconnect. My boys would love the opportunity to contribute to that celebration of the women who have given us so much support. So this Mother's Day is our chance to do just that. This year, I decided to have my boys "create" their gifts. About a month ago, [...]

Stonyfield Greek Yogurt FOR KIDS!!!
May 01 2012, 0 Comments


Since I have started on my healthy kick, my newest love is greek yogurt. First introduced to my by a worldly co-worker, I opened it up and thought, "there is no way I am eating this chunky stuff". I mean it looked like cottage cheese. That was enough for me to throw it away. But when I was looking for additional sources of protein, I found the greek yogurt has TWICE the amount of protein than regular yogurt, so I made the switch. As with most moms, whenever I sit down to eat something [...]

In January of this year I was on a show called, "The Revolution". They wanted to show a typical family and how our "convenient" lifestyle impacts the earth. The show connected me with Annie Leonard from YouTube viral video sensation, "Story of Stuff". Annie gave me some great ways to reduce. Here is the followup podcast interview: What simple changes can you make to impact the environment?

BULLY
April 13 2012, 0 Comments


When you are a mother of little ones, the moment they are out from under your cover and introduced into the world, you worry. You want them to be safe, cared for and guarded, but you know that no one is going to do it to the same high level of caution as you the parent. Then introduce school...my eldest son is in Kindergarten and has ALREADY complained of some child bullying him. So when I was given the opportunity to preview the movie "Bully", I had to go. "They punch me in the [...]
