20 Things To Do When The Kids Say…I’m Bored!

How many times a day do you here…“Mom, I’m bored”. I probably here it a million and one times.  It’s either my oldest who is tired of sitting in front of the TV all day, or it’s my youngest because the oldest doesn’t wanna play with him right then. Crazy thing is, they both have countless toys or activities to do. There’s multiple sports they could go outside to play. They have a park literally in our cult de sac. Yet… Neither of them have anything to do… Say what!? Back in my day (I say that like I’m super old or […]

Boy, Does Summer Break Change When You Are A Mom

Remember when summer break meant spending all day everyday with friends, hanging out by the pool, staying up late, hitting the beach, going on road trips, vacations with just friends? Boy…does all that change when you become a mom. Now summer break entail: Play dates and talking to moms you have nothing in common with.  Planning kid birthday parties (yes, they are fun but tend to be more stressful than planning your own birthday…why?) Instead of lounging by the pool, you are the lifeguard on duty. Instead of just being “the girls” it’s now…the girls and a million kids.  Instead […]

Money Saving Tip – Your Online Buying Guide

Buying online can be super scary sometimes.  Sometimes you are sent the wrong thing, or it just doesn’t fit how you want it; and lets not even get into the returning process… BUT it’s one of the easiest ways to save money. Plus, it’s been the number one way my family has been saving money recently. I’ll be honest…I disliked online shopping for fear that I would be sent the wrong thing. Also, I’ll be honest again…I’ve only had that happen once and it was an eBay order. Most people on eBay though are pretty good at accepting returns especially if it’s […]

Hello Friends! It’s Taco Tuesday!

Hi Friends! Happy Taco Tuesday! I hope you are having a fab day 🙂 As of late…I’ve been a little absent from my blog. Not that you probably have noticed because there are more important things in life to attend to…like tacos! The reason for my absence is quite simple…life. Nothing outrageous or horrendously wrong has happened. Except if you count a skin infection as horrendously wrong then I guess so. Don’t worry. Everyone is fine, and it wasn’t me with the infection, or the kids. Which by the way…it’s healing nicely. I’ve just been my normal worry wart self, […]

Phone Call? What Phone Call?

Okay…I seriously can’t be the only one out there right that doesn’t like talking on the phone, right? I mean, I have been putting off calling an old friend who sent me her number and said “call me”. She even has some important information and I STILL haven’t called her. It’s been like 5 days now… I used to love talking on the phone until… I became a mother. True story. After I became a mother, I cringe every time the phone rings and most of the time, I just ignore it. Doesn’t matter who it is… I’m pretty sure […]

How To Deal When Your Kids Are Being Assholes

It’s not just a phase. Kid’s are just assholes. If I had a dollar for every time someone has told me “it’s just a phase” about my children or when I have said the same thing to my friends to reassure them…I’d be rich! I’m pretty sure the majority of that money would be coming from that voice inside my own head, saying “don’t worry, it’s just a phase, they’ll grow out of it and be the best of friends”, “don’t worry, it’s just a phase, her attitude will fade soon enough”, “don’t worry it’s just a phase, he’ll learn […]

Let’s Agree To Disagree

Here’s something that I have never understood. Why do women (mainly mom’s) think that it’s okay to judge each other based on how they parent their children. Just because I parent my child differently than you, doesn’t mean that I am unfit or don’t know what I’m doing. Motherhood didn’t come with an instructional manual and we’re all figuring it out the same way. By trial and error. Nobody parents the same way. We might have similarities in what we do, but it’s never the exact same. Some mom’s decide to breastfeed, others decide to bottle feed. Some use the […]

Mother Knows Best

Afternoon my beautiful peeps! I woke up this morning with a pep in my step and set out to accomplish many things this morning…well… ….nothing has really gotten done…at all… Apparently my brain is going a few hundred miles an hour right now and I just can’t concentrate on one thing…I’m thinking about many things right now… …laundry, Christmas & Christmas presents, decorations for a pre-teen girl’s room, mothering advice, hustling, laundry, all the places in the house that needs attention for cleaning and organizing, how I want to organize all those places, interior decoration, projects, sleep, Jax and how […]

I’m Back!

Hey everyone! It’s been awhile! I’ve been super busy over here and slowly losing my mind in the process. Kidding…at least I think so… I spent the entire weekend and the days before Thanksgiving making my front living room go from this… (which is part of my Project: Get Life Together movement)   To this… I really need to find something to put on that wall, so I can take down the kids artwork. I used to homeschool Wes before he started Kindergarten, and that’s where we hung everything. Even though the kids (mostly Wes) have taken over the front […]

Um…She’s Like…So Unpopular…

Happy Saturday Evening peeps! I’m going to be honest…I haven’t changed out of my PJ’s today… …. And it was glorious! I even slept till 9:30am which was even MORE glamorous. I haven’t been able to sleep in…in…I don’t even know how long. …also…I didn’t do anything all day either! Okay…that’s a little bit of an understatement…I did go get burritos! And they were oh so yummy! Story time! As I’m sitting in this drive-thru line…which is actually taken forever…I’m just minding my own business right? Just hanging out in the my mom truck – jamming out, having the performance […]
