Let’s Give this Dress Idea a Try

I happened upon a rack at Ocean State Job Lot that held a bunch of cute dresses. Usually, as a woman with wide hips, it’s difficult for me to find a dress that suits my body type. I picked out two dresses, each I felt may end up looking odd on a girl with curves, but I actually adore this first dress I wore. Never mind my double chin, most of us who have given birth or not end up with one as we get older. I have learned to embrace this double chin even if I do hope it […]

Shopping for my Tween Daughter

The time has come, that time when your child no longer accepts and adores your clothing selections for her. Yes, I firmly believe it happens to all of us. We all have been at that stage where the clothing choices our parents made for us would make us cringe and argue the fact that we are now too old to have our Mommy or Daddy buy us clothing.

Adult time is an extremely important part of having a long term serious relationship, how else can two people continue to learn each other, enjoy time together and talk about something other than juggling children and what’s for dinner? Movie night is an easy way to get some alone time while the children sleep but when children are young they  may not sleep at a time that allows for movie night.

Owning a Home Means More Responsibility of Pest Control

I remember when I was renting places that I was never really in charge of ensuring that pests stayed clear of my property, after all it is the landlords responsibility to pay for any pest control services. As a new home owner, pest control is something that we will be in charge of and responsible for should unwanted pests arrive on our doorstep. In our home, I am the one scared of moths and he is the one scared of spiders. It works out great, we laugh at each other over these things. I feel like the big bad woman […]

Another Case of the Sillies, This time it’s the Tweens Turn

When these two girls get together they are super goofy. Of course they are both in those tween years which means hormones can be off and moods up and down. I am okay with that, after all I am female and can completely understand while assisting in deterring too much of a major melt down. I am a calm parent, usually. I also encourage my kids as well as my boyfriend’s kids to be their own self. Speak up for what they are feeling and remember that around me, you can say anything as long as you are respectfully sighting […]
