Earlier this week I finally got around to configuring my iGoogle page. If you haven’t set one up yet, you should do it. I like that I can have several important (to me) things on one page and I especially love that it has a To Do list right there. I’m constantly wanting to jot down reminders to myself and I either can’t find a pen or if I do, I end up losing the little slip of paper to a pocket abyss or the paper/receipt monster that lives in our house.

The winner of the Tummy 2 Tummy Babywearing Instructional DVD is #18 – Deb – Mom of 3 Girls! Congratulations Deb! I hope you enjoy it and can pass it along to others when you are finished with it. :) For those of you who didn’t win, the good news is that Sharon Pickersgill (the creator of Tummy 2 Tummy) has said she’d be happy to offer up another DVD for a second contest in a few months.

What kind of statement is that to make in front of my kids?” Yes, it’s true that I am frustrated with my hairRead More →

It was a short weekend around here since Jody was working out in CA last week and didn’t get back home ’til late in the afternoon on Saturday. I felt like I needed another day to recuperate from his absence, but c’est la vie. The mommy show must go on. Before he went on his trip, he left “I love you” notes scattered around the house. They were waiting for us to discover when we woke up that morning and we continued to find them while he was gone. On the coffee table, Julian’s changing pad, the front window, Ava’s carseat, tucked in a cerealRead More →

Notice anything different around here? :) What do you think? I’m very pleased with my new bloggy home. Heather at Girly Blog Designz did an awesome job. Thanks to all of you who made suggestions for my blog slogan too. In the end, I decided to combine two that were suggested to me. :)
