Why Didn't I Think of That?

Today the girls and I took a field trip to our local Barnes and Noble. I didn’t come up with this idea. Our online school combined a “book fair” (buy a book and the school gets a cut) with other literary activities, like a read-aloud, bookmark making, and a scavenger hunt....more

Recap | Mommy & Me: A Young Naturalista Beauty Event

On Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 I co-hosted Mommy & Me: A Young Naturalista Beauty Event with La'Nisha of Curly Divas. It was such an amazing event. I had so much fun with the little girls and they were so funny. I always forget how opinionated kids can be.

Day 5: Celebrating Friends

Today on Day 5 of my Celebrating Thanks Project, we are celebrating Friends. Friends is such a great topic to discuss, because I have been blessed with so many in my life. Friends from my childhood, college, colleagues that I have met along the way, and of course, all my new mommy blogger friends! My friends are my circle of life. They give me such joy, stress, and happiness all at the same time, that it is hard to put into words the many thanks I have for them. People always make fun of me when I say I have lots of best friends. But this is my philosophy....more

Day 4: Celebrate and Be Thankful for Family

Welcome back my friends! Today is Day 4 of my 28 Days of Celebrating Thanks project, and today we are being thankful for Family. What does family mean to you? For some, family is blood, and others it's the amazing friends that they have met through their lifetime. I have such a great mix of those, and can't start to even name all those amazing people in my life. But today, lets talk about my blood family. Those are the people, that have never failed me, and can't imagine what my life would be if I didn't have the kind of relationship with them that I do....more
