We don't have an "art collection" per say in our home but I do love to decorate with what I consider meaningful pieces. That is to say my walls and mantels are covered with the masterpieces my kids have created… Continue

I love listening to new music but am a little bit picky about the styles and sounds I really enjoy. Unless I am at a party or in a club, I want music with great lyrics, a catchy tune and most importantly, something I can sing along with. Basically, I can listen to a new song a couple of times and if it isn't stuck in my head afterwards, I probably won't… Continue

Last night, I got the opportunity to see a prescreening of The Help. I heard so many people say the book was great, so I was really looking forward to the movie. Here is the synopsis: …

When I had my daughter 5 years ago, her birth sent me into a whirlwind of emotions. I was overjoyed, but also scared, anxious, nervous and exhausted (ok, I know that exhaustion is not an emotion, but for a new mother, it might as well be). At times, I was just bewildered with everything going on around me. For the first few months, I was so overwhelmed with everything being new, and wanting to capture everything and make sure everything was done right, that often, I didn’t realize that if I… Continue

Naming a child usually takes a lot of thought and can even be a little stressful. I often hear disagreements between the parents and most can't decide with out some sort of debate. I know from experience that baby names can even effect friends and family when you don't consider what a name means to them. (Isn't it a little funny that we allow a name to say… Continue

What steps have you taken to be prepared? If your answer is "none" then you may want to take some time and get a plan together! Since we moved here, I felt quite comfortable in our Northern California neighborhood. Strangely, I hadn't lost any sleep knowing that earthquakes happen often here and that a "big one" is overdue and could hit any day. All that changed when my family woke up to a tsunami warning as a… Continue

For this week's list, I picked some great LED gadgets because I always get comments about how cool the faucet LED is that we have in our kids' bathroom. So I will start with that...
#1) The Faucet LED is great for a couple of reasons. The kids get excited to wash their hands so we rarely have to convince them. The second is that the water turns red when it gets hot. This came in very… Continue

I love the holidays and have already started looking for fun geeky stuff for my DH, a few other family members and friends. ( I am surrounded by them!) I am a huge fan of ThinkGeek.com and saw these on their site today. Just had to share...
Hehehe...look at the handles! They call them "Chop Sabers" of… Continue

The kids and I went to have lunch with the hubs and while we were sitting outside of his office, Luke (4yrs) saw something that I thought was really cool! He said "Mommy, those letters make an arrow." I looked for a little while before I realized what he meant...then I took this pic.
Do you see it? I cracked up that he found it without anyone pointing it out. I love when my kids… Continue

Forgetting is normal. It happens to us all from time to time. Being unmotivated happens because not everything we have to do is fun and exciting. If you find yourself in need of a little reminder or a little shove in the right direction, then here is an interesting new solution called NagReminders! This is a service that promises to help… Continue

Something I really need to do a better job of is using coupons. I am really good at keeping the ones I want to use and never taking them out of my purse or entering them at checkout! I hear how much people are saving by doing something SO simple and I can't believe I haven't paid more attention to it! Maybe I need a little peer pressure to make me get into coupon mode...LOL
Here are the places I found and wanted to share.
You can find great deals from my friend Maura's site… Continue

The History of Samhain
Samhain marks the beginning of Winter and the end of Summer in the British calendar. It is the time of the Pagan New Year celebration as the bountiful growing season ends and Winter begins. The days are getting shorter and colder as the earth moves further from the sun. Cattle and sheep are brought in from pasture to spend the winter in the… Continue

I did not know what I was getting into the other night when my geek husband said "Oh, we have to see this! I heard about it from a co worker." "The Cove" was playing on Planet Green so we recorded it and watched it.
As it began, I thought it would be a great documentary on the beauty and intelligence of dolphins and was locked in and ready to learn. It starts by telling you the story of "Flipper" the television show and what a wonderful… Continue

We can all agree that being a parent is the most important job we will ever have but it is also hard work! Those little miracles we brought in to the world take oodles of time and attention and they deserve the best we can offer them! When I had my two kids, I was far from family and my husband was working close to 80hours a week. We were exhausted and needed not only a break, but some time for just the… Continue
