Holiday Gift Ideas

It’s the middle of November (shhh, I know it’s closer to the end. Ears covered – LA LA LA!) and I’ve purchased one present and one stocking stuffer. I’m starting to get a little anxious as I usually am much more organized around this time of year. My holiday cards aren’t even ordered  yet, which says a lot. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t have ideas. So instead of doing a little online shopping today, I’m going to share with you my thoughts on a few gifts for your […]

Our Netflix Family Favorites

Our Netflix Family Favorites

We have been Netflix subscribers for almost a year and a half. It’s been awesome. Everyone in the family has something to watch. On Saturday mornings, my almost six year old is always the first one up. He’s allowed to go watch TV (any approved show he wants) until his three year old sister wakes up. Then he has to switch to a show that’s appropriate for both of them. His favorites (which admittedly make me want to cringe just a little) are: Pokemon Power Rangers  The Ultimate Spiderman My […]

Reality bites and other words of wisdom

THIS...this is way better than dealing with feline medical issues.

Dudes. Seriously? I just got back from an AH-mazing weekend. We’re talking wine, good food, coffee, cuddlling, cold weather and a little adventure. It was BEYOND needed. We got home late Sunday afternoon. The kiddos rushed into our arms and we had a big ol’ family snuggle fest. Again, totally amazing. Then Monday happened. What the deuce? It’s like reality decided to bitch slap me, point and laugh. I spent most of the morning doing the normal catch-up from being out of work. Then I had the brilliant idea to update […]

Go BOLD and be okay with discomfort {checking off a life list item}

November 10, 2014
Go Bold #CamryBold

I’m not much of a risk taker. I don’t particularly like not being in control. But a lot of life requires risk and stepping out of your comfort zone. I know this and have spent a good chunk of time learning to embrace the fear and jump anyway. So when Southeast Toyota asked to check something BOLD off my life list to help introduce the BOLD new 2015 Toyota Camry, I immediately said yes with no hesitation. Jason and I were headed to the mountains anyway to celebrate our ten […]

Big Hero 6 movie review - A Parenting Production

We have literally been waiting for this movie for months. Ever since the first sneak peek at a preview came out in early summer, my son has been asking when we can go see Big Hero 6. Well Wednesday was the night. We hit up our local theater for the advanced screening. Official Synopsis: Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls […]
