Hi, my name is Tales From the Motherland, and I'm addicted to reality. Please don't call me out for using the classic "meeting" hello; trust me, there will be plenty of opportunities to judge here. Those of you who are clever enough, or who have the…Continue

I remember the morning that I took the pregnancy test on September 26, 2010, just a few days after my husband’s birthday. The pregnancy test turned positive right away. We had been trying for a long time to have a baby and we were finally blessed with the news that we were expecting. At the time, the timing didn’t seem perfect but things always have a way of working out.…Continue

Well, I may have COMPLETELY lost my mind because lately I've been dreaming about babies and puppies. And I might need an intervention. Click over to my blog to see why: "…Continue

Maybe I just don't get it. Maybe I'm not seeing something that everyone else is seeing. But I just do not understand this hi-lo trend thats going on right now.
For starters, the peplum tops and the hi-lo tops make people who aren't 90 lbs look pregnant. It doesn't matter how cute you think you look, you are most definitely 8 months showing.
This is one bandwagon I refuse to jump on. What happened to the really good, cute maxi dresses for Summer? (Remember we don't have…

First, let's discuss my guns.
I've worked for weeks on these wings and they are finally getting where I want them. Perfect timing since I have a trip to Savannah next weekend and maxi dresses are in my future.
I posted this pic last…

To say that this weekend was absolutely amazing would be an understatement. I can't even put together words to summarize how it was.
Naturally there are pictures to be shown and things to share so let's just start there.
I wonder how many hours it will take to get this post up and running with pictures. I sure hope it isn't another 24 hours. *eye roll at Blogger*
I think it's time for some funnies on this lovely Wednesday morning.…

I apologize now, before you read any further, for this post. I don't apologize for who it offends, because it will, and well I just don't really care.
Have you ever had one of those days where you can make a mental list…

Lately, my son has had many questions regarding death, which is normal for his age. Here is a conversation we had the other day.
Max: Mom, when I am an adult will you be dead?
Mom: No, I will be alive. I'm an adult and my mom is alive.
Max: How about when I'm…Continue

It’s no secret that I have had issues with kindergarten homework. Last fall, I got scolded by the teacher for not making my daughter follow directions and color.
(You can read the sordid details here.)
But it’s May now and my 6-year-old daughter and I have found our groove when it comes to kindergarten…Continue

Pork is the culinary name for meat from the domestic pig and is one of the most commonly consumed meats worldwide, with evidence of pig husbandry dating back to 5000 BC.
Since the animals are now bred to be lean, the meat is higher in protein and about 30 percent lower in calories, saturated fat and cholesterol than the pork produced in the 1970's.
With so many lean cuts of pork to…Continue

If you’ve ever read anything about weight loss, or seen any diet commercial, you are familiar with the concept of portion control. Yes, it’s all about serving size. You’ve heard, as I have, that restaurants are killing us with giant portions, that protein servings should be the size of your palm, that it isn’t what you’re eating, it’s the amount you’re consuming that’s matters.
Over the past several months, as I’ve been striving to lose weight and get healthier, I’ve…Continue

Our society seems to have this one size fits all mentality right now. And if you don't conform to those standards be prepared to be scorned. And moms, we tend to be a hot target lately.
Let's be honest, most of the time those scornful looks are coming from other women. It's human nature to judge and I know I have done my fair share of judging as much as I try to keep an open mind. But what I find amusing is no matter which way on the spectrum you go someone out there thinks…Continue

Following on from my hilarious blog yesterday about my ‘bucket list’ and death I thought that today I would talk about retirement, not from blogging you understand but from employment.
I had no plans to write about this, it’s just that I heard a debate on the radio earlier, so I thought that I would see how other people felt about it. The actual topic of the debate was ‘does retirement cause death’? This was enough to catch my attention, so I gleefully carried on listening so that I…Continue
