Hey Hey Hey! | Sum It Up Sunday

I’m just a girl, sitting in front of her computer, avoiding the 1,000,000 things I *should* be doing to prepare for the next week. Hi, guys. So Sum It Up Sunday is happening because writing for 30 minutes will help me justify putting off #allthelaundry for 30 more minutes. I’ll be honest: it’s been sitting […]

Funny 4th of July Monday Memes

My fellow Americans, The 4th of July is right around the corner. Some of us are already kicking off the festivities with early celebrations. (Guilty!). It’s the day we celebrate living in the land of the free and the home of the brave. With lots of food. Lots of family and friends. And booze. And […]

Wonder Woman’s Lasso Of Truth at Six Flags America

Earlier this week my family was invited to be some of the first in the DC area to check out the new Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth at Six Flags America. The kids ditched school, I dressed Lucy up in a Wonder Woman costume, and off we went for a day in the park! Since […]

The Kids Are Growing Up | Mom Monday

I’ll start this off by saying I’m so not that mom. I’ve never denied that my kids are growing up. I’m not the one who says, “They grow so fast!” or “I blinked my eyes and they are so big!” That’s not me. I acknowledge physical & emotional growth and the fact that the kids are […]

The Art of the Road Trip Pit Stop

While our president might be talking about the Art of the Deal, I’m talking about things that are much more important to parents. The Art of the Road Trip Pit Stop. I love a good road trip, and frankly, it’s probably the main reason I like summer vacations. When the kids are out of school […]

Give the Gift of Cheerios

This post is sponsored by Cheerios at Walmart. Thanks for allowing me to share the gift of Cheerios. I know I’ve told you this before, but I’m an awful gift giver. This is just not one of my natural talents and pretty much everyone who knows me will agree: I suck. I will take any […]

I’m A Wallflower Mom | Mom Monday

I had one of those super weird uncomfortable situations last Friday night. My Wallflower Mom-ness was in full force as I took my kids to the school carnival, hating every second of it. Despite being “social” online, actual real life situations are a whole other ballgame for me. It probably doesn’t make a lot of […]

Cash Me On The Couch, HowBowDah?

For Mother’s Day: I’m gonna be right here on the couch. All. Day. Long. Howbowdah? Everyone’s day probably looks different. Mine is going to be super lazy and boring and awesome just hanging out with the family & watching Parks and Rec. I got home last night after spending two weeks with a variety of […]

Road Trips With Teens & Tweens: Six Tips Parents Need

Like it or not, the summer road trip season is just around the corner. I’m in the ‘like it’ category! My kids? Maybe not so much. Road trips with teens and tweens can be challenging. But hey, that’s (literally) how this family rolls! For my family of six, the most economical way to get around […]

Tips To Survive the Work From Home Summer | Mom Monday

Working from home has some problems. For example, my commute is the worst. It takes, like, 14-seconds to walk down the stairs to my office. And the dress code is horrible. I mean, clothing required. Any clothing. Geesh, way to get all picky, kids! Okay, I can’t even go on with a straight face. There […]
