Motherly Advice from Post Grains Cereal Survey

Information I am about to share comes from the Post Great Grains Cereal Survey that was conducted by Wakefield Research among 1,000 nationally representative women ages 40+, between January 24th and January 31st, 2014, using an email invitation and an online survey. There are very few survey results that hit my inbox and make me say, “yes I must share that”. The line that grabbed me with the survey completed by Post Grains Cereal was this; 1 in 3 women believe the most important lesson about womanhood a mother can give is “Don’t let a man dictate your decisions,” followed […]

This Story Upsets me to my Core – Blogger & Eldest Child Killed by Estranged Husband #support #endviolence

As with any law or rule in this world, Justice isn’t always served as fully as it should. The one area that falls into this “gets addressed when too late” is domestic violence. Domestic Violence can be both or either Physical and Emotional. The sad news is that the court systems and authorities have their hands tied when it comes to domestic violence for both physical and especially emotional abuse. The sad reality is that many die each year at the hands of a supposed loved one, estranged ex whether it be estranged husband or wife …. it happens often. […]

Making Time for Adult Time is an Important Part of a Love Life

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. Another option is to allow family to take your child or children overnight, this allows for the wife or girlfriend in the relationship to slip into one of their […]

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 […]

Getting Stylish While Helping Others with Shabby Apple

Shabby Apple is more than just another place to buy a dress, skirt, blouse or casual wear, they actually give back to charities that benefit both women and children.  Up until a year ago, you would have never caught me in a dress, that’s because I haven’t worked in any offices that required dresses since high school. My love of dresses started up again this past year and so when introduced to Shabby Apple, I just had to try on their Da Vinci dress.  Shabby Apple was created by women for women and their mission is to bring dresses back […]

Dove Self-Esteem Weekend Oct 22 – 24 #Dovedifference

I am so excited to be a part of the first ever Dove Self-Steem Weekend which is this coming weekend October 22 through October 24, 2010.  Dove is asking you to take part in this weekend and one question is “What did you wish you’d known at 13?”. As a mother of an eight year old daughter I am often found making sure that I encourage her to feel her best, be her best and know that she is awesome no matter what television or magazines  say a female should look like or be. One thing I wish I had […]

Supportive Bloggers and Friendship

I notice as I am going around the blogosphere that many people start getting bigger with their blogs and stop helping others for free. When we all first start blogging we want to learn knowledge, share that knowledge and help each other succeed.  Ultimately some people want to make money in addition to blogging and so I can understand charging for your time, but really think about it; when you started blogging did you not have a few bloggers who had been blogging for a long time and were able to help you out for free? I know I had […]
