This Week, Choose Joy

Are you having the most hectic week of your entire year? 50 weeks culminating to this? No wonder we celebrate the new year! But in the midst of the crazy we always have a choice about how we respond. I know it’s a tough balance between super mom and super-chill mom. I’ve tried  to make …

Shopping and Saving This Christmas

I’ve got this love hate thing going on with Christmas shopping. I love getting a good deal, but I don’t want to feel like I spent my whole season hunting for the lowest prices. But on the contrary, it’s against my nature to just buy what I need and disregard that it may go on …

My Mini Guide to Black Friday

Before the turkey is even cold, people will be out shopping for Black Friday (Thursday?) deals. We can all agree that we don’t like the infringing on the Thanksgiving holiday. But some may also agree that the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping is so much fun! I’d be lying if I said I haven’t …

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 …
