That One Time We Were In a Coffee Commercial

Some people get 15 minutes of fame; I got 15 seconds. Next time Youtube or Facebook stops you with a catchy little ad for Vitacup coffee, you might see me and my family. Earlier this month, through a series of fortunate events, my family was asked to be in a commercial. The basic information given …

What I’ve Learned From My Jeans

Since the cool weather has finally hit here, it was time to put away summer strappy shoes and sun dresses for the season. But when I approached my closet it threatened to swallow me whole if I didn’t clean up. My overwhelming amount of jeans were staring me in the face and I admit, there …

My Review of Fit Vine Wine

Well nobody could give me a personal review on Fit Vine wine, so I HAD to go buy some to see for myself. I knew that Whole Foods carried it, so hanging onto Amazon’s promise that the prices would be lower now, I found my $15 bottle of wine. Hmmm. That’s a little more than …

How do I choose bravery over fear?

I’ve been thinking a lot about fear lately. How the older I get the more things that instill fear in me. In my early 20’s I snorkeled in deep water and LOVED it. Loved being surrounded by water and sea creatures that could only be seen up close because of the swim I’d made. Now, …

Who Doesn’t Love an 80’s Movie?

The other night I was flipping through channels and I came across the last 15 minutes of Sixteen Candles– the best part! You know, when Jake finds his girlfriend with the geek, then waits for Samantha outside her sister’s wedding. That part ruined me for any guy that would later cross my path. Oh Jake …

Seasons in Life

Since I recently wrote about missing the baby and toddler years and being so busy with our schedule, I began reminding myself of how blessed I really am. I do this when I get on my pity pot about something. I whine and complain and then a little voice gives me this annoying pep talk …

Another Season of Busy

Anyone else feeling the crazies set in of school and after-school activities beginning? Oh sure. I could be a sane mother who lets their kid participate in just one activity at a time. But oh no, I said yes to four dance classes and soccer for both kids. My neighbor is letting her son play …

First Day of School Feelings

I’m feeling all the feelings this morning as the kids go back to school. We were all ready for today. Summer freedom was turning to boredom, turning to let’s all bicker with each other instead. This family needed some space. Great summer memories and time together but looking forward to a change. Now the house …
