Thank God for the beach, beer and Dorito fingers!!!

Ahhhh!!  Vaca finally arrived for the family!  It took us a week's worth of cleaning and packing, two days of driving, numerous stops and a mass of emotional breakdowns but we made it!!  Funny thing is - our closest beach is only 3 1/2 hours away yet we choose to trek 9 plus hours to our favorite FL beach :)  Yep, we're a little nuts but it is sooooo worth it.  We love everything about being at the beach - we are beach people.  We are not the ones with the cabanas, and chairs…

Blog Tour: Hop On The Breaking Momma Train

The day we welcomed our twin baby girls into the world I took a moment later in the day to play around on my phone (obviously) and scan my email. (No, giving birth doesn't take away the desire to play with your smart phone... Especially when you have so many new pictures to go through and admire!) Anyway, I was…

Amazing Rescue: Dog Waited Alone A Whole Year After His Owner Died (VIDEO)

Woody before he was rescued

When Woody's owner died, the family members sold the house, leaving the poor little dog outside to fend for himself. He ended up living all alone under a nearby shed for a whole year, waiting patiently for his owner to return. Meanwhile, Woody survived on food and water provided by some neighbors, as they looked for someone to save…

Hitting That 3 Month Mark

On a serious note...where the hell has time gone??? I am baffled by how fast Aubrey's post-op period has been going go us all. Maybe because it is summer time, and we have been staying pretty busy...or I am just getting that much older where time is flying past.



Either way...We are here, three months out just about from the day of hell. I say that with as much enthusiasm as I can, but even though the procedure has been miraculous...it was a day from hell for us all. However, I can… Continue

No Place Like Home

This past weekend my husband and I traveled back to my roots. The place I will always call home no matter how long I have been away. There is just something about your roots that can never be replaced. You grow up going through high school counting the days until you are out. Only to grow up, and figure out it really wasn't that bad after all.



The last time I stepped foot in that town that I once called home was just about seven years ago, but it has been 10 years…

It May Not Be Easy...

Once again I am always taken back by someone else's journey, and struggle. My family and I have been blessed enough to meet some wonderful families along Aubrey's journey. Some of us share the same stories, and some of us are affected by something completely different. But there is one thing no matter what that we all have in common...



OUR FIGHT

When a child has a different chosen path of life, we as parents, grandparents, caretakers…

2 Months Post-Op

Here we are....two months out from Aubrey's brain surgery. It seriously feels like it was just yesterday. One of the most common questions I am asked by people is "Do you think you made the right choice?" Well...here is my answer to that question.



As of right now I know we made the right choice for Aubrey. There is not a doubt in out mind that we made the choice to save Aubrey's life. She was just one bad seizure away from really hurting herself, if not having that dreadful outcome… Continue

Have You Seen Aubrey

We around just about 2 months out since Aubrey's brain surgery, and everything seizure related is going great! I will not say anymore, because as stated before I don't want to jinx anything.



Aubrey is still very happy, and sometimes her usual self. But, then there are most days where I really do feel she is just walking around and not even on this planet. There could be a number of different factors that go into this behavior, and trying to narrow down which one it is would take… Continue

Running is funning, and Funning is running

As most of you know the Men's World Cup is going on for soccer, and if you don't know then you are hiding under a rock somewhere. I understand a lot of people are not into it, and that is okay. I truly believe if you understood the game inside, and out then you would LOVE the sport!



Now...in my opinion Men's soccer tends to be a little bit over dramatic when it comes to them falling down. MY OPINION. But, I also understand that you sometimes want to over dramatize…

20 Things Parenthood Has Taught Me

Being a parent as most of us know has it's great moments, and then those moments where you just want to run and hide. If you are a stay-at-home mother...you most likely have a lot of those moments throughout the day. NO matter how many times you lock a door behind you to go to the bathroom...those little hands will reach under the door for you. They're always WATCHING!



So after six years of being a parent I have learned some things. I am more than sure as time goes on I will learn… Continue

Those Awkward Stares

Let me start this off by saying that I was never a perfect child growing up when it came to quietly judging, or staring at people in similar situations that I find myself now in DAILY.



With that being said...I am learning to SOMETIMES quietly deal with the awkward stares I get from people in public when it comes to Aubrey. It is really hard...I mean REALLY. The New Yorker in me wants to come out sometimes, and just put people in their place for staring at my…

The Baby IDEA

When you were a little girl how many kids did you plan on having?? Or maybe you were like me and didn't want any kids...or maybe you wanted 8 kids, or maybe 20. Either way...you played with baby dolls or barbies at some point. Pushing them around in their stroller, feeding them fake food on a plastic spoon. Holding them while feeding them their milk bottle. Which I'm still confused how they would put "fake milk" in those bottles and it would never mold or spoil.



You…

6 Weeks Post Op

Time is flying by! It feels like yesterday I was sitting down making a list of things to remember to bring down to Miami so that Aubrey would be as comfortable as possible during this difficult time. Basically I brought every toy that she loved, and then some.



Now 6 weeks later...she is a thriving, ambitious, and crazier than ever 6 year old. She has her moments like any other child, but we are continuing to watch her progress in all different areas.



Yesterday we travels… Continue

Who Am I Kidding??

Okay, how many of you parents that stay at home with your kids get asked the question "Are you enjoying being home with your children?? How do you answer that?? I mean, that is a trick question I personally think. Of course I used to answer with a big absolutely!! I wouldn't trade it for the world!"  Now I am just honest, and tell them "It depends on the day, and which child didn't take a nap." Honest, right??



There have been PLENTY of times I have sat here and though to myself "well… Continue
