Summertime Sadness

May 27, 2020

In a given year, there countless milestones that we celebrate. There’s the obvious personal ones like birthdays and anniversaries but then there are the more generic ones that comprise the year. Especially when you have kids, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day take on celebrations that are probably very different than they were sans kids. But each time there’s a […]

Light Up Your Life

June 21, 2016

I recently had the chance to review a product. A candle. What’s so special about a candle? I certainly wasn’t going to say no at the chance of potentially liking a product but I pondered how I was going to evaluate a candle when I wasn’t passionate about candles either way. It’s not that I don’t LIKE candles. Rather, I […]

Slam dunk!!!

April 19, 2020

In honor of Michael Jordan’s documentary of the Bulls in the late 90s, I’d call this dinner a slam dunk! For one, everything was cooked in one baking dish. It included protein and carbs in one. Lastly, everyone ate it! Slam dunk! Hope it works in your house!   Print Dump and Bake Chicken Parmesan Author: happygoluckyblog.com Recipe type: Entree Prep time:  […]

Doing it for the kids

May 13, 2020

As parents, the majority of our focus is on our children and their well-being. Or is it? Is this what we convince ourselves as we allow ourselves wine for dealing with our children? Or is this what we say as we rationalize allowing our kids screen time past what we know is the appropriate amount? Is it possible that despite […]

Scared Straight

April 28, 2020

My roller coaster of emotions has now taken me to scared.  I’m scared.  Yesterday I was on a call discussing the re-opening of our business and I started to get very scared.  After all these weeks of confinement, the thought of being around other people is scary.  The thought of being within 6 feet of another human that isn’t in […]

Sadness seeps in…

April 17, 2020

I feel sad. I’ve worked very hard over the last five weeks to focus on the positivity of every day. But today I just feel sad. I feel sad that the 2019-2020 school year is ending like this. I feel sad because Friday normally gives me such an elation for the weekend ahead and now there’s really nothing to be […]

Educating the Youth of America

April 9, 2020

Patience is a virtue. A virtue I’m lacking. So day one of e-learning when all three children were shouting questions and concerns was enough to send me in a downward spiral. There’s a perfectly good reason my children go to school to have people WAY more qualified teach them essential skills. As the days have gone on, we’ve settled into […]

Quarantine Living

March 25, 2020

There’s something about the direction my family has been going in over the last few months specifically, maybe year or so if I’m being honest with myself. Our life has seemed to get faster. There are more activities than I’m comfortable with, there are more distractions than ever before and there is never enough time in any given day! Monday […]

Dear Gabby

June 26, 2018

8 years ago today you entered the world at expedited speeds. It’s been a complete whirlwind ever since. Whether you’re flipping around the house or dancing and singing, you provide an energy that makes our lives together even better. In a boy’s world, you are my shining girl light. You are always my little buddy – getting manicures together, helping […]

Dear Drew

June 12, 2018

How is it possible that my first born baby is double digits? I’ve been a mom for a whole decade? Impossible. For as hard as that may be to wrap my head around, it’s almost even more difficult to remember a life without my precious baby boy. As this day has been looming, I’ve gone back and looked at videos […]

Five? How did that happen?

December 20, 2017

I blinked and my bonus baby turned five. This time I was going to pay more attention. This time around I was going to celebrate every milestone because this was my last time. Low and behold five years flew by and I feel like I blinked and my baby is no longer a baby. To my dearest Noah, your life […]

My Guiding Light

August 7, 2017

This blog really heated up for me as a vehicle of venting and expressing my trials and tribulations with my children when I “retired.” Since re-entering the workforce, I have yet to blog. I have meant to blog, I have thought about blogging. However, I have not found the time which translates to priority to blog since I have taken […]
