New year, new you, and an update to the work wardrobe. The key to building a great work wardrobe is to start with the basics, a pair of black pants and a pair of non-black pants lol. I used khaki in the sample below. Next, you add a staple white cotton dress shirt and a light blue dress shirt or something with small pinstripes, and from there you add on. Your dress shirts serve as 2 options because you…Continue

Your children's toys are dirty, especially this time of year when the cold and flu germs are passed around like wild fire. Once the flu or heaven forbid the stomach flu has hit your house, you will want to disinfect your house, especially the germ filled toys. We try to clean the toys 2-3 times a year and when sicknesses hit our household, if you are considering a daycare they should be using some of these methods daily. Follow these tips on how to clean toys!

What's in Alice's bag you ask? Well, which one? She carries like 5. Her new favorite game is loading
up as MANY purses as she can carry and pretending to go bye-bye. We call it the Bye-Bye Game. It can entertain her and us for a while.…Continue

I follow Emilie @Pluckymomo and she recently posted about receiving a note from a friend "just because". Because of this awesome act, one of her resolutions for 2013 was 52 No Reason Notes.
Of course this got me to thinking about how much I would love to receive mail just because and I would love to…Continue

Define what's necessary. Say no the rest.
I have spent the past 4 days working on goals, meditation, and reflection.
First, I made a few minor changes to my home-management binder. My old binder literally…

I have always been a bit socially awkward. Not weird, just unpolished. I often stick my foot in my mouth or I blurt out things without thinking. Basically I have no filter. Oh and I have a very strange laugh when I'm nervous.
Since losing an infant, this problem has grown worse. Now I make others feel awkward too. It is not intentional.
My conversations with a stranger now go like this:
"Nice to meet you. What do you do?"
Me: "I'm a…

It’s not uncommon for little girls to want to wear make-up and to play at being grown-up by putting on high-heeled shoes and insisting on helping with the supermarket shopping while wearing a Disney princess dress. My girls always did this.…Continue

I can’t tell you how great it feels to be home with Tiara. We finally got released from the hospital on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and when we drove up to the house, I could see from the driveway that something was posted on our front door. ”What the heck is that?” I thought to myself. Once I approached the door while helping Tiara inside, I saw this amazing sign hanging…Continue

Because Tiara is improving so much the doctors wanted to move her out of the ICU and put her on the “floor” today. For those of you who aren’t frequent fliers of the hospitals, yes that is what the nurses actually call kids like TT, “the floor” doesn’t mean literally on the germ ridden ground but the next level beneath ICU. If you aren’t in the ICU that means you aren’t that sick in the medical world. You may feel and look like crap but people aren’t worried you are going to die during their…Continue

Good news! Tiara is off the bipap and is on a regular oxygen mask. She thinks she is all better so my whole purpose in life has been to stop her from tearing off her leads, pulse ox, and oxygen mask all day! The nurse just asked me if I felt like I was playing a role in Groundhog Day? Apparently I am not the only one who noticed I spent my whole day putting the pulse ox on every time TT took it off, which was every 30 seconds.
My parents brought Trinity to visit and while I was…Continue

It’s 7am on December 31, 2012 and once again I find myself sitting in the ICU at CHOC watching Tiara sleep. In my last post I mentioned everyone was getting sick so I was taking a mini vacation from blogging because I sensed I was going to be spending most of my time taking care of my sick kids. I hate when my Mommy intuition tells me stuff I don’t want to hear.
So Trinity got a bad virus and of course Tiara and I both caught it. Thursday morning, Tiara and I both went to the walk in…Continue

Because I have decided to take a small vacation until January 1, I thought it would be fun to feature my 15 most visited posts from this year.
Truth be told, Trinity got sick on Christmas, and is even sicker today. Bailey had a bad night and we had to rush him to the vet this morning, but he seems OK now and Tiara and I have suddenly developed…Continue

Back in the days when I was young, single and living in the city, my life revolved around…well…me. I wasn’t accountable for anyone else – and my long term plans reflected that. Once I met Ricky, that started to change. When we started planning for a family, we started really planning for our family’s future, which was a much bigger – and scarier – undertaking than I ever thought it would be. Now that we have a little one in our life, I realize how important it is for…Continue

When I was little, I remember laying on the ground and staring up at the clouds. I lived in Kansas and was 4 or 5 at the time. I used to love laying on the ground in our front yard staring up at the incredibly blue Kansas sky. I would make up stories about the clouds I saw, turning them into magical flowers, a woman in a fancy dress or a simple smiley face.
I remember staring up at the sky one day and deciding that I would remember ever detail of my life. I was frustrated because…Continue
