Z is for Zoo

Two weeks straight, I pulled the magnet letter Z off the fridge. I held it up and exclaimed “Z is for Zoo! We are going to the zoo!” Yea, we went to the zoo. I learned a lot on this family outing. This trip started last year as I had a heated debate with my husband about wanting to take the baby to the Halloween zoo event. This year, there was no debate. We booked the hotel room and woke up early on a Saturday morning. After eating breakfast, we returned to the hotel and I dressed the…

Lock it Up

Why does one need a stockpile?  Well if you're a prepper, you're preparing for the apocolypse.  If you're an extreme couponer, your stockpile is your badge of honor. But, if you're a regular, everyday person like me, you're trying to keep food in the house in order to eat it or save it for a rainy day.  For example, I know that my rainy day is coming in January.  Money will be tight because I'm losing a huge source of income.  Things will pick up again in February,…

I've Been Bad

There's nothing that can throw you off your routine more than moving to an entirely new state. It certainly has a way of turning your life upside down. Traveling across the country has put my weight loss and fitness into a tail spin and I've managed to gain 10 pounds from all the stress.  Ugh!



So I've mentioned that I'm an Army Wife and my husband has finally come home from Korea. My kids and I are so happy to have him home with us, but it wreaks havoc on my…

Today I had lunch with a few friends after bible study. To clarify, I didn’t make it to bible study because my 2 year old decided that 5 AM is a completely appropriate time to start our day. And then he crashed for a morning nap around 8:30. So we just met up for the “social” side of the morning.

As I was leaving, one of my friends told me that I look good, she couldn’t tell I was pregnant. And inside I was like, “Score! I’m effectively dressing my prego bod!”

Because, you…

Beautiful

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Period.

There is no getting around that. Five people can look at the same thing and you will get 5 different reactions.

I have always considered myself a fairly attractive female. I know my strengths and weaknesses. I've never suffered from self esteem issues all though Taylor Dayne a singer/song writer in the late 80's and early 90's ("tell it to my heart") had me trying all sorts of lipsticks and rollers because I was…

Blogging Tips: Why I Became a Freelance Blogger

If you didn’t already know this, I write for a living. Well, back that up. I consult for a living. And a big part of that is freelance blogging.

But this isn’t want I’ve always done. I have a strong background in marketing and finance, writing, public speaking and just generally running businesses.

Deciding to do what I do for a living wasn’t an easy jump. It took years of back and forth, being afraid of fully making that leap, dipping my toe in the water, walking…
