The number of bookmarks saved on my laptop has gotten pretty out of control lately, so I thought it was time for a little clean-up.  While going through the list, I realized that a lot of what I bookmarked is definitely worth sharing with you. Enjoy!  10 Healthiest Frozen Foods You Can Buy at Trader Joe’s As much as I love Trader Joe’s, it is a big misconception that everything you’ll find there is healthy.  They don’t stock the store with foods that contain high fructose corn syrup and other nasty ingredients, but...

Friday favorites (10/24)

Happy Friday! It has been a busy week here with the kids, and I’ve been behind on reading blogs and blogging myself.  I should be back on track next week, but despite the chaos, I still have a five favorites to talk about today. Let’s get to it! Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Candle from Bath & Body Works We are crazy about the scent of this candle in my household.  MT likes it so much that I went to Bath & Body Works on Wednesday to totally stock up on the candles, plug-in, and hand wash before they are all gone for the season....

Things I didn’t share Friday (10/10)

Things I didn’t share Friday (10/10)

(I originally planned to do a Friday Favorites in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but I am going to devote another post to the subject on Monday.  Look out for it!)   It has been ages since I’ve done a Things I Didn’t Share Friday post, but I do have a random list of things to write about that didn’t seem to fit anywhere else.  So…here it goes!     1.  Have you seen this video where a baby elephant falls and his or her parents come to the rescue?  I didn’t know whether to cry or cheer at...

Friday Favorites (9/12)

Happy Friday! Before I get into my weekly favorites, I just want to thank everyone for the sweet comments and feedback on my spin-off mommy blog.  Your kind words always mean so much, and as I said, I am really excited about this new little venture. And here are those favorites…   Guava Goddess Kombucha Just when I thought that I’ve tried nearly every flavor of GT’s Kombucha, I realized that I never had the Guava Goddess.  Horrifying, I know. Anyway, I picked it up at Target this week, and I think it might be my new...

Things I didn’t share Friday (8/8)

Happy Friday! I had enough things in mind this week to include in my Friday Favorites, but I figured that I’d switch things up a bit and do a Things I Didn’t Share post just like old times (“old” meaning two months ago in this case).     1.  I had quite the scare yesterday afternoon when Michael started choking on a cracker.  He was gasping for air, and his face started to turn colors. The entire ordeal probably only lasted about 5 seconds, but it seemed like an eternity,  MT and I both took a CPR class...

5 reasons to unplug from your electronic devices

5 reasons to unplug from your electronic devices

I’m going to sound like a little old lady today, but I remember a time when I couldn’t be reached 24/7, when I didn’t see constant updates about the health condition of my former Kindergarten classmate’s cat, and when I didn’t receive breaking news on the relationship status of a girl who I maybe sat near once in a study hall a decade ago. Yep. Somehow I muddled through and lived to talk about it. Believe it or not, the memories that I have of my childhood (where owning a monster-sized computer that only allowed...
