Hollywood and Beverly Hills, Here I Come

That's right, folks! This Friday, this shy Texas girl is leaving my quite country living and flying out west to California to meet some other amazing mommy bloggers for the Red Carpet Premiere of Gnomeo & Juliet. Um, to be honest...I'm totally freaking out.  It's bad enough that I'm fashionably challenged, but I'm going to be face-to-face … [Read more...]

Help for the Fashion Challenged

So, I've been stressing the last couple of weeks wondering what the heck I'm going to wear around LA and Beverly Hills!  Remember y'all. … [Read more...]

Please Vote for My Hillshire Farm Sandwich + Help Me Donate 5K to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation

Do you remember last month when I went to Chicago to the Sara Lee Kitchens?  Well, I can now spill the beans about my trip and how much I need your help.

I created a super simple … [Read more...]

Bringing in the New Year

Since becoming a parent, my New Year celebrations aren't what they used to be.  This year our band, 413, played at a local church, where they served fingers foods and then we headed home.  Nothing too exciting, no fireworks, just family and music. I will say that we enjoyed some quick, delicious food though! Remember my review of the Tyson … [Read more...]

What is a Mommy to do?

I'm really having a hard time lately, being away from my children.  I've always been a stay-at-home mom until just recently and it's starting to break my heart to leave them every morning.  I know they are in capable hands, in fact, our sitter just loves the boys and they absolutely love her.  I know she is doing an excellent job but in my heart, … [Read more...]
