I am a clock-watcher. A planner to the core, I spend a great deal of my time each day planning out my day, and the days to come. In fact, in addition to my iPhone calendar, I use a good ol’ fashioned paper calendar, too, with each week broken down into hour-by-hour scheduling so that […]

I was recently at a conference in Las Vegas for “internet geeks” and the topic was networking – as in with people, not computers. Chad Hymas was the keynote speaker. I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for motivational speakers. Maybe it’s because, as my husband says, I see most things through rose-tinted glasses. Or, I just […]
(Almost) nine years ago, I stood in my closet staring at a sea of clothing that no longer fit me. I was days away from returning to work after having my first baby. Returning to work and taking my son to daycare left me full of anxiety and I felt horrible about my post baby […]
Recently a news story came out about parents who were taking their first flight with their infant daughter Madeline. Assuming the flight would be terrible for those around them, they packed goody bags filled with candy and ear plugs and an apology note. While I don’t know how little Madeline handled the plane, the goody […]
It’s January, and the holiday hangover is in full swing. I am hanging on to my resolutions by my fingernails and I am having a day of feeling like I am running full speed into brick walls. Don’t even ask me if that printer works, I am not tech support on top of everything else! […]
I’m going to ruffle a few feathers here. It’s Girl Scout Cookie season, and no, it doesn’t get me nostalgic of the cookie sales of my youth. It actually gets me all riled up. First of all, I have a big problem with organizations using junk food as a way to raise funds. What kind […]
Today is my 10 year anniversary. TEN YEARS people! This milestone seemed like forever away when I first got married, and now I’m here. I’m 28 years old, have 4 beautiful children, and a dang sexy husband. Life is good. There are so many things I’ve learned along the way about marriage. Whether you’re old […]
I’ve been drowning in a sea of spit-up. I’m a second time mother – this spit-up thing was something that I felt like I was well prepared for. What I wasn’t prepared for was a battle of pride – and so far, the spit-up is winning. I’ve been called many things, but the one that […]
I can’t tell you the number of times people ask me if I have children, I respond yes – that I have three – and people literally gasp. I’ve heard all sorts of responses, including “Wow, you must be really busy!” and “Haven’t you figured out where babies come from yet?” The truth is, after […]
Remember the days when you were trying to conceive your children and missing our period was a momentous occasion and running to the drugstore to buy a stick to pee on was beyond exciting and waiting to see the result was the most exhilarating two minutes of your life and finally seeing the positive result […]
I’m sort of a curmudgeon when it comes to New Year’s resolutions. I know I’m not going to quit eating sugar, or that I’ll hit the gym five days a week just because January 1st rolled around, so I’m philosophically opposed to resolutions. They’re a clear setup for failure. Over the years I’ve tried to […]
When I was a teenager I barrel raced competitively. This meant crisscrossing the state for something like 30 weekends a year. Most of those trips were spent sitting next to my dad in the front seat of our Ford F250, pulling a horse trailer containing my beloved Tru and Blackjack, Quarter Horse geldings that I […]
