When that first smudge of a bump starts to show, you get excited. And, you see those signs that say “reserved for expectant moms” parking spot.  Yes, I’m pregnant (this is hypothetical. No, I’m not really pregnant…confusing, right?). Now I don’t have to walk the parking lot into the store. Woot. Wait. There are no […]

Buried under kids in the pool

Atlanta to Houston (well, suburbs to suburbs) should take approximately 13 hours. It took us 14 on the way there and 15 on the return. We debated splitting it up into two drives (leaving after dinner and driving a couple hours, and stopping at a hotel) and decided against it. Our kids don’t sleep in […]

Yo, I was allowed the privilege to send myself some flowers from The Bouqs. And, it was so painlessly easy and inexpensive that I ordered some more for my mother-in-law for her birthday.

Our girls have some of the best imaginations. So much so sometimes that I get confused if they are talking to me or not. “Mommy?” “Yes, dear.” “No, not really ‘mommy’, mommy, pretend mommy.” Right.

We did it! We flew across the country from Atlanta to Los Angeles to go to Disneyland with 4 kids (ages 7, 5, 2 and 3 months). No, we aren’t crazy. Yes, we lived to tell about it! I’d go so far as to say we had a great time, too. Making memories! We got […]
