I’m sitting here in the middle of the rainforest in Uganda writing this. I’ll talk more about the adventure of actually getting here but first we need to discuss white water rafting because I just did it and I was not prepared!
As some of you know, I’ve been working with Joel Lambert on a new project that focuses on adventure travel from two very different perspectives. We selected Uganda as our first destination, gorilla trekking, but what I didn’t … Keep Reading!!!
Hey everyone, popping on here again to discuss what we’re doing.
We’re clearly very excited about Halloween… or maybe it’s just me….
We have been all over the California coast these past couple of months. The boys have perfected their boogie boarding skills. As for me, I’m just lucky I can keep up.

Some people love wine. I definitely appreciate it, but I’ve always been more of a beer girl. That’s why I was so excited when we went to Bend, Oregon last summer.
(I’m a little devastated that I lost all my photos on my phone from that trip… alas, only Instagram images are left. )
Bend is a small town that has sort of become our Beer capital at the moment…
…or maybe I should say micro-brew capital?
Anyway, this little … Keep Reading!!!
Aly Brothers is a single mother of two beautiful boys.
Aly is also like most parents and became completely overwhelmed by her childrens’ unexpected (but totally normal), defiant behavior at the grocery store the other day.
However, unlike the majority of us who just try to get over it quietly and privately, Aly decided to share this real moment with others.
Her caption on Facebook expressed the difficulties she sometimes faces while raising two children:
“This is motherhood.
No … Keep Reading!!!
Leave it to the internet to try to shit on something positive.
You may have heard that Alicia Keys announced that she was completely over makeup back in May, but I don’t think anyone realized how serious she was until she followed through with a completely bare face at the VMAs.
Check her out-
And that isn’t even “no makeup, makeup” – she’s got a totally bare face.
Oh Alicia, I wouldn’t wear makeup if I were you either.… Keep Reading!!!
Model Carol Trentini is making news this week for gracing the cover the September issue of Vogue Brazil while breastfeeding her baby.
In the gorgeous images, shot by photographer Zee Nunes, Trenton was captured at seven months pregnant and two months postpartum for the photo series.
The model was extremely appreciative of the magazine’s willingness to put a breastfeeding mother on its cover.
The importance of sensory play was first introduced to me when one of my children was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). In fact, SPD is so common that I’m sure I have it, and there is a good chance you or someone you know does too However, today we’re talking about sensory play which benefits everyone, not just those with SPD.
Sensory play is a crucial part of development for small children but is often overlooked. That is why … Keep Reading!!!
Hey everyone! Sorry for these sporadic updates. I’ll get more consistent, I promise.
I have been so busy that I haven’t had a lot of time to spend at the computer and when I finally sit down to write something, I’ve been overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin.
But… I’ll try right now.
Also, excuse the typos or grammatical errors here…. I’ll never get this out if I don’t just write it and send it off immediately!

There are occasions in life where certain reactions are expected of us. It’s as much promoted in fiction as it is by society. On our birthdays, we are meant to be a mixture of happy at the attention with a tinge of misery over our ageing. A wedding is a joyous occasion, in the lead up to which the bride is expected to turn into a control freak.
By far the most expectation-heavy time of our lives, however, is when … Keep Reading!!!
Summer is here, and it’s time to grill, and as everyone knows, hamburgers rule the dinner hour when they are cooked correctly. Here are a few tips on how to make your burgers the best around.
It’s All About the Meat
The perfect burger starts with the perfect meat. Some burger connoisseurs suggest grinding your own meat, allowing you to mix different cuts and different animal proteins to create the perfect mix of flavors and fat content. For those that … Keep Reading!!!
Fergie recently released her much-anticipated new video featuring several celebrity moms. The hit song and video have gone viral, but the tongue-and-cheek visuals have enraged many people on the internet (surprise, surprise).
When I first heard the song and saw the video it was clear to me that it was created to be intentionally ridiculous, to the point where I found it to be obviously poking fun at a derogatory word/acronym. This was even more apparent when Fergie released a … Keep Reading!!!
Recently, I announced over social media that I am looking for ethical companies to promote. The reason is simple enough: I am sick of sweat shops and I want to support small, ethical businesses. However, I have found it difficult to find affordable clothing, accessories, and household products that are ethically created.
During my initial search I found that these companies do exist, but they are just exhausting to find. That is why I want to provide a resource that … Keep Reading!!!
