What People are Tweeting About People Like Us

So, last month I was in New York because I was asked to attend the Tribeca Film Festival to see a special screening of Marvel's The Avengers. While I was there, I also had the opportunity to see People Like Us and The Odd Life of Timothy Green. I know, exciting, right? After I watch a movie, I always tweet out something about it.  Whether I liked … [Read more...]

My First TV Appearance

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to be a guest on the BetterTV show as a mommy expert. When I received the invite from VTech, my initial thought was "heck no." Not because I didn't want to or that it wasn't an amazing opportunity, but because I'm so incredibly shy. But, I did it. I couldn't pass up such an amazing opportunity because I knew … [Read more...]

The Craziness of the Holiday Season

I'm pretty sure you've noticed an increase of activity here at Simply Being Mommy.  I'm trying to keep my posts down to one a day, but with the busy holiday season, I'm finding that even more difficult than normal.  I try my hardest to make sure everything that I bring to you is relevant, timely and something you feel is of value. In addition to … [Read more...]

A Time of Reflection and Growth

Over the last few years I've noticed that I haven't always been one to show loving kindness to those closest to me.  The ones that matter the most, are the ones who get treated the worst. I haven't always been like this and I know there is no excuse and no one to blame but myself.  In fact, I take full responsibility for my actions.  I can't … [Read more...]

Memories from Disneyland

Do you take pictures of signs with your name?  Call me silly, but I take pictures of anything that has either my name, the hubby's name or any of the children's names on it. Here are two with my name from Disneyland. I know, it's an awkward habit but I think it would make for a cool name collage one day. … [Read more...]

My New Ride | GMC Acadia Denali

The hubby and I decided it was time for a new vehicle, so this past Saturday we went car shopping.  Did I mention how much I HATE car shopping?  No, well I HATE car shopping!  The whole salesman blowing smoke up your behind trying to sell you more car than you need... but regardless, we came home with this. It is so much different than my last … [Read more...]

How Do You Find Balance?

Have you ever just screamed out loud "I can't do this anymore!"?  I have, more than I'd like to admit.   It's not because I have a hard life.  Compared to others, I'd say I have it pretty easy.  My husband and I both have jobs, our bills are paid, we have clothes on our backs and food on the table.  The children are happy and thriving and my … [Read more...]

Why Do You Really Cook?

That was the question Louise and I were asked while in San Diego for BlogHer. Hillshire Farm had a booth set up and they wanted to know what gave us motivation to cook.  If you know me at all, you know that I'm a really shy person.  Not only am I shy, I get terrified and it's like my mind shuts down.  So, getting anything to come out of my mouth … [Read more...]
