The Fresh Diet

March 14, 2012

Last month I was contacted by The Fresh Diet people and invited to eat all of their food. Or some of their food, I’m not really good on the fine print. The idea would be that I would try the food for a week and then share my experience on my blog. Since there’s nothing […]

How I Host The Big Game Party

January 25, 2012

I am not a Big Game person by choice.  And not even by marriage. Yeah, my husband likes to watch a game occasionally, but our house has never been Game Central until our son was born and grew up to boy, I mean, man, the remote control. Now I’m living baseball and football seasons in […]

Bake Sale

September 16, 2011

Last night, when most normal people were watching Project Runway (is it me, or is Heidi unnecessarily bitchy?) I was baking blueberry muffins with my daughter. Because their class is having Friday bake sales now. To raise money for a class trip. We baked and baked and the muffins looked gorgeous. Like model muffins. It’s […]

July 18, 2011

As a mother and a blogger sometimes it feels as though there are not enough hours in the day to squeeze in everything that I need to get done. No sooner have I caught up on The Real Housewives and deciphered the latest Twitter drama, visited my favorite blogs and prepared the next day’s post […]

In the Kitchen

July 14, 2011

The post that you are about to read was generously sponsored by American Home Shield. Perhaps you can see why. _____________________________________ The other day, I decided to bake a potato. For dinner. For the children. For nourishment. The only stumbling block was that I didn’t actually know how to bake a potato. So because I […]

Citizen’s Arrest

July 11, 2011

The other day I was doing some research about citizen’s arrests. Did you know, for example, that in most states if a felony is committed in your presence you should feel free to take the alleged felon into custody. Unless he kills you first. But I’m sure it’s a relief that you don’t have to […]
