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 […]

It’s Gonna Be May | Mondayish Memes

It’s gonna be May… in a few days. And it’s not quite Monday. This memes post is already total rubbish, right? Right. But I’m sharing my favorite It’s Gonna Be May memes anyway. Because: JT. Hellloooo… Do I need to explain? Maybe I do.  Apparently some folks were clueless to what all the memes meant this […]

Real Talk, Real Results | 28-Days of Olay

This post is sponsored by Oil of Olay and Walmart through Acorn Influence. I participated in the 28-Days of Olay skin study. Opinions and results are all my own.  Women, let’s have some real talk here. We all have our “thing” that we aren’t happy with when it comes to our appearance. You might not […]

DisneyBounding For Dapper Day at Walt Disney World

While this is primarily a lifestyle blog with a focus on running and general fitness, once in a while I like to dip into fashion. Friends of mine: you can stop laughing now. It’s true; I have no sense of style.  Like, at all. But Pinterest is the BOMB.  And it doesn’t hurt to have […]

Uncommon Gifts From UncommonGoods

My husband is the best gift giver ever. Every gift I’ve ever received has been thoughtful and meaningful and wonderful. His love language is definitely one that includes showing how important I am by giving me something I’d never pick for myself. He’s a pretty good guy. Me on the other hand, well… ahh… I’m […]

Spring Break in Washington DC | Mom Monday

My kids have been off for Spring Break for three and a half days. And we’ve spent most of their Spring Break in Washington DC. And I’m an exhausted, weary, in bed by 8 pm bone tired momma over here. I’m not complaining, though. No, really. And if you know me, you know that’s a […]

Chores For Kids of All Ages | Mom Monday

Mom’ing is hard, isn’t it? Unfortunately, this blog post isn’t going to change that. Even one that gives a list of chores for kids of all ages. No blog post on the internet is going to tell you how to do it just right.  Mistakes occur. Regrets happen. Apologies are given. Goodness knows I’m giving my […]
