Our weekend getaway

We went out of town this weekend to Lake Tahoe, CA with my husband’s family and I wanted to be able to write about the wonderful time we had and the importance of weekend getaways.  Unfortunately, that’s not what I will be writing about. More

The Unplanned Future

In one of my classes I had to complete a life plan about my ideal life. Not really sure the significance of the assignment to the class but it was nice to daydream. I had never really thought about my ideal life before the assignment. After I completed the exercise I started wondering what my husbands’ ideal life would be. Would it be the same as mine since we often think alike? Or would it be completely different? More

My Daughter’s New Game

 

My little monster and I now have a new game that we play called “Pants around the Ankles” Sounds fun doesn’t it? Here’s how we it goes: More

My Rant About Nap Time

My little monster never (rarely) takes a nap for me.  She loves her mommy so much that she doesn’t want to close her eyes at all when I am around.  Nevermind the fact that I enjoy quiet time and I can accomplish a lot more when she is down for nap.  No, she parties hard when mommy’s around. More

Mom Needs Help

I need help. Not a sentence that most moms would say (out loud, to others). We like to believe that we can do it all by ourselves. Reality check…we can’t and we shouldn’t have to. More

Got Lemons? Make Cake

On Christmas a friend gave me a bag of lemons.  I put them in a bowl on the counter and have been staring at them ever since.  Today, I figured out what I was going to do with them – make zesty lemon pound cake! So, I got out the recipe, the ingredients, and suited up my helpers. 

As we were making the cake I started to think about all of the other “lemons” that life can give to moms and how we can deal with these sour problems to turn them into delicious cake instead.  More

Organize Your Brain

I started the last semester of my undergrad degree this week which means that my life is back to being not just busy, but hectic. As I look at all of the upcoming homework assignments for the next four months I go through a major panic attack. How am I going to do all of this homework, plus take care of my family, plus work, plus everything else I need/want to do?

I’m Praying for Snow

I live in Reno, Nevada which is usually cold in the winter and we get occasional snow storms. For the last three days however it has been beautiful with a record breaking high of 67°F. The sun has been out and we can play outside. No jackets, snow boots, or layers of clothes to stay warm.

Downtown Reno

But, I’m praying for snow. More

I’m addicted to my iPhone

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to my iPhone. I can’t leave the house without it. I am always on it. I love it. Sometimes I think my husband regrets the day he said I should get an iPhone. The list of reasons why, as a busy mom, I love my iPhone include:

Don’t do this to your friends

Driving home from school one night last week I got a text from my husband “Don’t freak out, child is cleaning a big mess.”  “Okay” I respond, trying to figure out what happened but not brave enough to ask. I do some mental preparations as I continue my drive home telling myself that it will be okay, it can’t be that bad. Then I walk in the door.
