Finding The Happy?

This week we celebrated “International Happiness Day“.  A day where everyone is invited to join the movement to create a happier world.  Did we though?  Did you?  I sure didn’t.  For me, this past Monday was a big old grumpy blur.  In reality it was just another manic Monday and I don’t think I did […]

The Marriage Saver

A fact I’ve learned to deal with over the years. My Hubby snores. Like big loud truck rumbling through the Lincoln Tunnel kind of snoring. When a man can wake himself up with his own snoring, he is an Olympian of snoring. My man is the Gold Medal Olympian of snoring. So how have I […]

Tracking Family Time Like A Boss With Project Smart Furniture

When was the last time you spent some quality time with your family?  Did you have to think about it?  I can admit that I certainly did.  So when was the last time my entire crew was together?  Perhaps it was dinner on Sunday night.  Oh wait, we all took the dog for a walk […]

What Your Wives Are Talking About

Do you want to know why your wife looks so tired?  Why her fuse is so short and why she is kind of “stomp-ey” when you get home from work?  It’s not really that big a mystery. Nope, not rocket science.  And truthfully, it’s not even your fault. It’s just the reality of the crush […]

How To Be A Criminal In The Suburbs

Keeping it real; my confession from the suburbs this week: My Hubby had been away for the better part of the week. I’m not ashamed to admit this has made me a little extra tired, perhaps a tad more frazzled than usual, I definitely had a shorter fuse. My hat is off to the Mama’s […]

Coffee Talk

  This week I didn’t get out to have a fabulous lunch with my girlfriends.  There were no fancy dinners.  No “date” nights.  Not even a coffee date.  This week…I did exactly nothing for me.  I drove the kids from A to B.  I worked.  I cleaned up the same messes I always do.  I […]

New Year~ New Dreams ~ No Resolutions?

2016 has come to a close.  As with all families, we’ve had some blessed moments, some good days and some bad.  We’ve had moments that have taken our breath away.  A few tears and lots of laughter.  2016 has been an epic a year and I’m happy for every moment.   All those combined ups […]

Powering Smiles and Imagination with Duracell ~ Furby Connect Giveaway!

My every day is filled with but one wish for my children.  That they are healthy and happy.  It doesn’t seem like a grand wish, but it truly is everything. My Husband would tell you “Happy Wife, happy life.”  and I’d say a Mother is only as happy as her saddest child.  As Mother’s we […]

Has Anyone Seen The Girl Next Door?

Not long ago I was invited to a girls weekend up at a cottage. No Men. No Kids. Just wine, and food and girly stuff. Sounds great right? Well perfectly wonderful until you figure out you, well you ….are a bit lost. A couple of days before I was supposed to leave for this blissful […]
