  • Conferences And The Other Dilemmas They Bring!
    Tweet I love planning for conferences. I love being alone on a flight. I love being able to shut the bathroom door in a hotel room (and if I am sharing a room I figure my room mate appreciates that too). I love making myself pretty (well as pretty as I know how to make myself look). I love eating adult food and sipping wine. I love hugging my bloggy buddies IRL (in real...

  • Let’s Not Forget About Haiti!
    Tweet This week fellow Heart For Haiti Ambassador Sarah and I were on a talk show with Ananda from Digital Sisterhood to talk about about the Heart For Haiti campaign (you can listen to the podcast below) . Sarah is an amazing person, who in spite of not being impacted directly by similar tragedies has her heart and head in the right place. It really gives me hope that...

  • Travels Bring Sweet Memories No-One Can Take Away!
    Tweet I love travel. Did I say love? I meant love, love, love – with a capital L travel. If I had oodles of money it would NOT sit in a bank (I can see hubby already getting antsy reading that) but spent on travel. The guys over at Traveling Mom gave me the opportunity to watch the new upcoming Open Season 3 movie and mull over my thoughts on family travel. What’s...

  • Win A BuddyCam Starter Pack (Webcam, Earbuds and more)!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Mandala! Do you love Skype? If you did you would. There are so many tales I could share with you about Skype. Like when my sisters in SouthAfrica saw their nieces for the first time over Skype. Or the time my friend celebrated her kids birthday over Skype. While technology is often thought of in cold non-social terms the very purpose...

  • So You Know That Kiddo Who Had Her Cast Removed Last Friday?
    Tweet Yes, the same 3 year old kid that sported that cast for 3 weeks – all during Christmas and New Years. I was counting down the days to the cast being removed so that I could at least put on a winter jacket that would fit, after already forgoing any events that may stress the situation – bye-bye sledding. I even moved our New Year’s stay at The...

  • What’s The Tooth Fairy’s Going Rate?
    Tweet I did not care for learning anything about the Tooth Fairy – we had no concept of this growing up and somehow in my head my kids seemed to young to be losing their baby teeth. Then during breakfast on Sunday (I think) she mentioned her tooth was loose (a little more excitedly than I preferred). I panicked. Did her glass cup hit on her tooth? Hubby was trying...

  • Getting Back To Reading Magazines! – Win A NOOKColor!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Jennifer J. Magazines! I used to read them. Really I did. In fact I used to subscribe to several and then spent countless hours again on ones that I did not subscribe to reading in the Barnes And Noble café area. Then a kid came along and another and the scenario changed. Sure there were magazines, but it was basically those “free”...
