Just Call Me Cleopatra

October 30, 2012

This wonderful thing happens to me living in this beautiful climate…come fall everything gets dry. My knuckles start cracking, my legs start itching and my hair gets frizzy. I have dedicated my life to fighting frizz, some days more successfully than others. It probably doesn’t help matters that I have a love affair with my flat iron. Regardless, my hair […]

We speak the same language!

June 22, 2012

I love that Drew is a boy’s boy. I love that he has passions…obsessions for sports. I love that he is who he is. But there are times that I’m so glad I have a daughter too. Gabby and I speak an unspoken common language. I get her and her interests in a way that I absolutely don’t with Drew. […]

Can a back yard party be just a back yard party? Ask Nana!

June 7, 2012

It’s not like I’m the first person to ever throw a party. It’s even less likely that I’m the first person to throw a birthday party at their house. But I may win the most crazy one while doing so. I’ve already been baking for weeks. The requirement being that everything must be “Gabby friendly.” Fortunately in the world of […]

Code Pink Emergency

May 15, 2012

Houston we have a problem! There is no doubt that Drew is a boy’s boy. He has no interests that are even slightly unisex. It’s sports 24/7, he pretty much has zero interest in girls or girls’ activities (with one minor girl exception) and he seems to relate to the male parties in our family WAY more than the female […]

You Go GF!!

May 3, 2012

Did you hear the news? It’s incredible really. She did it! People joked that she has spent as long as 72 months being pregnant, and Jessica Simpson FINALLY had her baby. I am just as guilty as anyone. I criticized her…physique. Jessica Simpson became known for her sultry beauty. Once glamorized as Daisy in the Dukes of Hazard (most known […]

Diva Style

January 13, 2012

Those of us who haven’t reached celebrity status remind ourselves that even celebrities are human. They put one leg in their pants at a time. Sure they are designer $500 pants but they are just like us. There are sections of gossip magazines showing celebrities being just like us. They go grocery shopping, take their kids to the park, and […]

I’m not going to apologize for my desire to buy trash magazines and catch up on celebrity gossip. I realize it’s not the most intellectually stimulating reading material. I also realize that it’s not like I’m busy working on my PhD and I’m normally a more intellectual person. I’m just gonna say, it’s what I like so take it or […]

We have boy overload in our house. I have not been quiet about the obsession with baseball here. Well, fortunately for everyone, we have nicely transitioned to football. It’s sports city here about 90% of the time with a few super heroes thrown in and the occasionally fixer up tool situation. One thing that is definitely lacking is girly time. […]

You are perfect just the way you are!

July 18, 2011

I recently starting thinking about what it takes to raise a well-adjusted girl, on the heels of celebrating Gabby’s new found love for food. Boys have their challenges, don’t get me wrong, but everyone knows that raising girls comes with an emotional hormonal roller coaster where mothers frequently can’t do anything right. I was reading an article this morning… […]

Bring on the carpools!

June 22, 2011

We have recently added to our family. With my job ending, I’m losing some perks of my job including my company car. As Adam and I planned how our family is going to weather this change, we started discussing what vehicle should replace my current one. A couple of months ago I got rear-ended and my rental car was a […]
