The Newest Soccer Mom on the Block

I officially became a Soccer Mom last week! Do you think I need a minivan now, or will my SUV suffice? I'm pretty sure it has room for soccer balls, a portable chair that I still need to buy and a cooler that I may or may not fill with wine. I've been wanting to … Continue reading The Newest Soccer Mom on the Block

Endometriosis Awareness Week: When Your Cramps Are More Than Just Cramps

Endometriosis Awareness Week 2019 runs March 3 - March 9, and unfortunately it's a disease I'm all too aware of. I was diagnosed in my mid-30s, after visiting a fertility specialist when our efforts to start a family weren't working. Infertility is one of the possible side effects of endometriosis. I was just relieved that after … Continue reading Endometriosis Awareness Week: When Your Cramps Are More Than Just Cramps

A New Uncarbonated Life on Topamax

When the doctor put me on Topamax as a migraine preventative, he asked me if I drank Diet Coke, and then mentioned some people said it made it taste funny. Diet Coke has always tasted funny to me, so I didn't think anything of it. What he failed to mention was that it wasn't just … Continue reading A New Uncarbonated Life on Topamax

Getting Older- I Could Tell By Your Hands

I've always been a little self-concious of my hands. Even when I was younger, they appeared a little on the "older" side with visible veins and light wrinkles around the knuckles. When I was modeling I was always critical of how they appeared in photos. One time I was at a bar and a guy … Continue reading Getting Older- I Could Tell By Your Hands

The Day the Grinch was Caught in Action

As I snuck down the stairs with a big red sack (it was an old Target bag, the giant size) thinking nobody would notice, I made it as far as three steps before lights started flashing, a loud helicopter noise began and sirens went off. My son appeared out of nowhere going "Hey! What's in … Continue reading The Day the Grinch was Caught in Action

Merry Christmas to Me: A Nice Clean House

It's SO nice to have a clean house. And it's not that we are terribly "dirty," but it's a good sized house with a dog, two cats and three-year-old so it gets to the point every so often where I just feel like I can't keep up with the bathrooms and the dust and the … Continue reading Merry Christmas to Me: A Nice Clean House

My Experience with EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy

The other night during a storm the lights went out and I was suddenly plunged into darkness. I calmly reached for my phone, turned on the light and went looking for the flashlight. This is a stark contrast to how I used to react to the dark, and the change is all due to one … Continue reading My Experience with EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy

Pregnancy Made My Hair Go Insane

I had heard that pregnancy can give you lush, full hair, and that afterwards it will fall out and return to normal. That wasn't exactly my experience. I got the lush and full part. My hair got thicker than normal, but after my son was born, it stayed thick! But not just thick - it … Continue reading Pregnancy Made My Hair Go Insane

*This post is sponsored by Owl Cam, all opinions are my own* The holidays are a big season for gifts, giving and unfortunately thieves looking to relieve you of a little holiday cheer by breaking into your car.

Yard to Table, Why I love Having a Garden

I planted my very first garden when I was six, in the Florida sand in the little area between our townhouse and the next. I planted peas and was excited to see them grow and produce pods. I was so excited to actually grow my own food that I popped those few peas out of the … Continue reading Yard to Table, Why I love Having a Garden
