What’s Your Favorite Flavor?

Tomorrow morning, I’ll officially be a “cookie mom.”  You know, the crazy ladies dragging their little girls around selling those addicting little round morsels of joy???  For those of you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m speaking of the ever-popular Girl Scout Cookies. That’s right, folks.  Cookie Season officially kicks off tomorrow. And, glutten-for-punishmentContinue reading “What’s Your Favorite Flavor?”

Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen

Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth. I call that a success. People often ask if they get along well. And I always answer with “Eh.” Their personalitiesContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen”

(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom

Today’s prompt for (Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday is: Write about the woman who has had the greatest impact on your life. This didn’t take more than a few seconds for me to know exactly who I’d write about- my Mom. We’d both freely admit that we don’t always agree about everything- far from it.Continue reading “(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom”

Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike

From my Five-Minute Journal, today’s quote was from Albert Einstein: Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.  Although this morning was the first time I’d heard this quote, I think it’s been something that I’ve always subconsciously tried to use in my life when things are a challenge. Continue reading “Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike”

Mommy Review Monday: Five-Minute Journal 

A few days back I posted about my new journey using The Five-Minute Journal and said I’d let you all know how it’s gone for 5 days- and now it’s been more than that but I decided to wait to post on Mommy Review Monday. I did make it the solid 5 days that it challenged me toContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Five-Minute Journal “

New Journey with the Five-Minute Journal 

I’m starting a new journey with the Five-Minute Journal. I’m nerdishly excited about it as I’m always looking for good self-improvement methods. This jumped out at me after listening to a pod cast (I hate that I can’t remember which one) with the authors/creators of the journal. They recognized a need- people need to remember theContinue reading “New Journey with the Five-Minute Journal “

Wellness Wednesday: Working Out with 8fit

Another confession- I have motivational challenges getting up and working out. I can’t figure out why because after I work out, I always feel great for the rest of the day. Whatever it is, I overcame it this morning and worked out.  Since I started working out again I’ve been alternating between running (maybe itContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Working Out with 8fit”
