When Blogging Becomes Stressful

I started a blog as a release, a way to get my anxieties about motherhood out and share my story, and hopefully connect with other moms going through the same thing. I didn't start a blog to make money or make a new job for myself. To be honest, I wasn't looking for a new … Continue reading When Blogging Becomes Stressful

From DragonCon to MommyCon

Since 2005, this time of year has meant one thing, and one thing only: DRAGONCON! From the first moment I stepped foot into the amazing costume/cosplay/fandom/craziness that is DragonCon, I felt at home. I remember checking into my hotel and immediately running up to my room to change into one of the many costumes I … Continue reading From DragonCon to MommyCon

Slowing Down with Rituals TryaBox from Tryazon

We do little things every day, automatically, without thinking about them. As a mom with very little time to stop and think about anything, I sometimes exist in a constant mom brain buzz just "getting things done" and moving on to my next task. So when applying for this Rituals TryaBox from Tryazon, I wrote … Continue reading Slowing Down with Rituals TryaBox from Tryazon

Bring the Noise – Using Sound Machines for Sleep

I never tried a sound machine until after my son was born. To be honest, I thought "white noise" was a little creepy after seeing the horror movie with the same name. I got over my apprehension after discovering all the different types of white noise beyond the spooky static in the movie. From crashing … Continue reading Bring the Noise – Using Sound Machines for Sleep

A Little Hello from Ireland

I've been in Ireland for a week now and haven't had a chance to update the blog once!

My Week in Review- Star Cookies Part 2, Fireworks, Spider-Man Ice Cream, a Clean Room and a Visit to Lululemon

This week was all weird due to the holiday on Wednesday. It's felt like the weekend all week long! It was an eventful week with a memorable visit to the Lululemon store, a second attempt to make decent looking star cookies and all the Fourth of July festivities happening.

Lululemon Made Me Feel Like a Million Bucks

Last week in a fit of frustration with a pair of floppy leggings, I published an article titled "Lululemon Makes Me Feel Fat." What happened next completely changed my opinion of the Lululemon brand and was a shining example of what has become a rarity these days- stellar customer service. Within hours of publishing the … Continue reading Lululemon Made Me Feel Like a Million Bucks

Celebrating MY Independence – A Daycare Story

I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled funny little stories to confess I totally broke down and cried several times last week and I've just had it. This stay-at-home-mom is waving the white flag. I had tears streaming down my face and ear-piercing screams in the background as I typed "childcare" into the search engine over the weekend. … Continue reading Celebrating MY Independence – A Daycare Story
