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)

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...

Weekend recap (Lazy 5 Ranch)

Weekend recap (Lazy 5 Ranch)

It has been scorching hot in Charlotte lately.  If I don’t get the kids out for a stroll by 8 am, I can just forget the whole idea because walking any time after 10 in the morning is just too uncomfortable, sticky, humid, and gross.  In fact, I’ve taken up doing laps around the mall lately- a great air-conditioned alternative to walking outdoors! Anyway, MT and I wanted to do something fun with Michael over the weekend, but it was too steamy to go to the zoo (my first choice), and he hasn’t been digging the pool (just a...

Things I didn’t share Friday (4/25)

  1.  I had all of the intentions in the world to do lots of posts this week, but as you may have noticed, that didn’t happen.  Addie has been super cuddly and likes to be held a lot- which is awesome- but it also makes it a bit difficult to get much done during the day.    When she is napping, I like to spend some one-on-one time with Michael, so again, I am not getting much blogging accomplished.  I’ll settle into a rhythm soon though, but until then, my posting schedule might be limited to just 2 days a week.  I...
