Stay at Home Mom

RIP Old Me

October 12, 2012

I have joined the world of people way too involved with all the many details that comprise my children’s lives, I have become a person who defines herself based on her children, and I am at the point when people ask about me I reply with details about my kids. I’m a stay at home mom through and through. For […]

This past weekend away was enjoyable in a way I never expected, never really even hoped for, and almost feel guilty about. I agree with all those sentiments that were passed along – it’s important to have adult time away from your children, yadda yadda. The carefree-ness I had over the weekend made me feel almost negligent. The relaxed feeling […]

I’m soooooo outta here!!!!

September 28, 2012

This is the first in a LONG time, and I’m afraid last for quite some time, of adult only vacations that Adam and I will be taking. We are heading out to a friends’ wedding in Memphis, TN. We will be sans kiddos from late Thursday night (last night) until early Monday morning. What does one do without kids for […]

Thank Goodness!

September 11, 2012

Maybe you can tell because I’ve hinted to it, I’ve danced around it or I’ve indirectly said it but my mom is AMAZING! She’s not amazing in that everyone has an amazing mom sorta way, she’s amazing because of so many things words really couldn’t properly ever grasp it so I’m not going to waste your time with a laundry […]

Mommy’s Retreat

September 6, 2012

I have one blissful retreat during the day. It has taken awhile for me to get to the place where I can have this break. But everyday I enjoy it so much. It sustains me. Our day consists of a rather hectic morning, dash to school, gym, dash back to school, crazy lunchtime and then free play until nap and […]

On the road again…

August 29, 2012

Thursday we leave for vaca #2 of August. This is a shorter getaway filled with kid activities 24/7…also known as my modern dream vacation. It used to be that all I wanted was a beach and a few cocktails for a vacation. Nowadays my dream vacations have transformed to Disney World and Wisconsin Dells. The concept of going to restaurants […]

What a difference a year makes! (The summer edition)

August 7, 2012

I can’t help but reflect back to where I was a year ago. After the long, hard decision to quit my job and stay home, I had made it through July (my first month as a stay at home mom). And although I was getting into a groove, most of my contacts were not going to be around in the […]

CEO of the house

July 20, 2012

I think my husband likes a woman in power. Of course I am the woman in power of our house, but he has been talking a lot about Marissa Mayer. Marissa was recently named the CEO of Yahoo. Two interesting points about her is that she is only 37 and she is pregnant with her first child due in October. […]

Foo Fighters Meet Yoga

July 12, 2012

Today in yoga the teacher played a Foo Fighters song that I have always loved (Everlong) but an acoustic version that really made me think… “if everything could ever feel this real forever if anything could be this good again” Now bear in mind these words penetrated my mind after a grueling workout very close to the point of cool […]

The Eternal Debate Continued!

July 11, 2012

I have a friend who works full time. She has a nanny who is amazing and does everything! She does all the cooking, the cleaning, the laundry, the errands, getting the kids’ bags situated and lunches packed, etc. And as a result, my friend gets to come home and be fun. That’s her main responsibility once she walks in the […]
