For this week's VlogTalk, I decided to pick a prompt to discuss some parenting mistakes I've made. Thankfully, I'm only seven+ months into this parenting thing, so I haven't made any HUGE mistakes [yet!]. In the video below, I discuss some of my rookie mom mistakes including troubles with bottle … Continue Reading..
I have been doing this blogging thing for a month and I have to say, I am having so much fun. Putting yourself out there isn’t always easy, but with every comment on here or in real life, I am inspired to keep going and keep learning about this unique space. I have a lot of people to thank for … Continue Reading..
I am not a fashionista by any means, but since becoming a mom, I’ve had to become much more practical about the clothing and accessories I purchase. Gone are the days of buying anything that requires dry cleaning, ironing (mom or not, who has time for that?!) or can’t just be thrown in the wash … Continue Reading..
I once wrote a sad post about my grandma. She suffers from dementia and it’s awful to witness. But as sad as that is, I am blessed to have another living grandma, my mom’s mother, who is still alive. And well. Like, reallllly well. I chose Mama Kat’s prompt to write 10 things about one of my … Continue Reading..
I'm not entirely sure if it's legal to link-up to Wordful Wednesday with a short video clip. However, my point & shoot camera is slowly dying and I haven't shot too many pics on my new iPhone as of yet...so I'm compromising. This near 30-second clip is one of my most proud "mom moments" to … Continue Reading..
One of this week's VlogTalk prompts was to tell the story behind your child's name. For sake of Internet safety, I've been calling my daughter Little K. That will not change. But, for the sake of the prompt, I will share what her name is. Aren't you lucky?! (And I am feeling much better than last … Continue Reading..
My husband and I joke all the time about what we want our baby to be when she grows up. Granted, she’s only seven months, but we both already think she should go into the medical field. It seems like there are always great opportunities and tons of flexibility for when it’s time to settle down … Continue Reading..
From the time I knew I wanted kids, I knew I wanted to breastfeed. Maybe because I’m part hippie and love that it’s “natural” and all. But really, I just grew-up thinking that’s just what you do when you have a baby (my mom has always been a breastfeeding advocate, which has surely shaped this … Continue Reading..
Before my days at my first steady job, I babysat a lot of neighborhood munchkins. Each weekend babysitting job between the ages of 12 and 15, I’d spend a little of my hard earned money and save a little. I was saving up for one thing I dreamt about since turning 12: my first car. I secretly hoped … Continue Reading..
The past week hasn't been the best for me. Last Wednesday, I thought I had come down with a cold that kicked my butt. All I wanted to do was sleep...something that isn't easy with a 7-month old. Finally, upon going to the doctor, it was determined I have sinusitis and allergies, which are flaring up … Continue Reading..
It's a special day because I'm posting my first vlog. But don't judge me...I have been under the weather for a few days, so I don't look or sound my best, but I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to "meet" some fellow ladies in the blogosphere for the VlogTalk meme. I figured I'd just roll … Continue Reading..
Today I'm taking the day off to nurse a sinus infection, but feel free to visit my dear friend Jackie at her metro Detroit money saving blog, Free Is My Life to check out a guest post I wrote highlighting 10 easy ways I've learned to save money since staying home. I'll be back tomorrow...in … Continue Reading..
