Charleston, SC: The Road Trip Edition


I’m a big proponent of the Girl’s Weekend. It’s a necessary part of life. Whether it’s getting away from work stress, parenting stress, life stress, sometimes you just need to grab a girlfriend, hop in the car and GO.

Mom’s Nite Out – What Every Mother Needs

Last night was a first since Miss E was born.  I got dressed in something other than a nursing tank and yoga pants.  I put on make-up and I WENT OUT.  The Raleigh Convention and Visitor’s Bureau was totally awesome and worked with Molly Gold to put together this years Mom’s Nite Out celebration. Triangle… [Read More]
