Taking care of the kids, lending a hand with the PTA, juggling work commitments, grabbing groceries, and driving carpool.  Add in homework, endless laundry, Dentist Appointments and even Doggy obedience school.  Everything seems urgent, all of it must be done now!  What ends up falling at the wayside?  The good old fashioned date night!  Reality […]

Join Us For The #RandomActsOfPizza Twitter Party!


It’s Thursday afternoon and I’ve spent my day running around like a super crazy person!  I still have 20 things on my “must do” list and there are at least 7 others I’m sure I’ve forgotten.  As the clock sneaks up to 5pm, I know one thing I’ve let slip through my fingers; I have […]

T-Rex Restaurant! WW


A flashback to the T-REX Restaurant in Downtown Disney World.  Why now?  Partly because I have been advising close friends this would be a great spot for an engaging and exciting meal while at Disney, mostly because I can’t wait to head back to Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference in 28 […]

Lazy Monday Meme!


This weekend was full of Dance Competitions and National Cheer Events.  A whirlwind of activity that left me somewhere between a buzzing state of caffeine bliss and utter exhaustion.  (and I was only in charge of make-up, picture taking and driving)  So instead of spending my Sunday evening trying to put down into words how […]

Discovering A Hidden Gem


Every once in a while I stumble across a place that I want to shout about from the rooftops (but maybe not too loudly so it doesn’t get too crowded?).  The kind of place that is so special you can’t believe you haven’t heard about it before, can’t fathom why you haven’t been before, or why […]

On Sleepless Nights, Lukewarm Coffee And Finding Joy


When it’s cold and grey out.  When the kids have nagging coughs, and new complaints about teachers and homework.  When there are endless carpools and a ridiculous number of obligations to attend to, and my insomnia is back, it’s not always easy to feel joyful.  Actually, it’s all to easy to slip into a state […]
