This very second, I’m typing on my MacBook Pro while my son listens to a Pixar book on the iPad and my daughter sleeps to the sound of white noise on an iPhone. I’m absolutely confident in saying that I would not be enjoying this blogging career had Steve Jobs not been on this planet. […]
Remember my desk? I love that workspace dearly, but we had a small issue with the painting. Not that we don’t love that painting; in fact, it is my very favorite painting in the house by far. It’s just that the painting used to hang above our bed, and even though we tried many other […]
Two “rules” I try to follow when shopping for clothes are: 1) Buy clothes you’ll wear on a Tuesday afternoon, not a Saturday night — few people lead Saturday-night lives. I originally read this on Susan’s website, and it jumped right off the page at me. I am SO guilty of buying for Saturday night! […]

I stumbled upon this little gem last week. Buttons as earring holders. Buttons as EARRING HOLDERS! Am I the last to know about this genius idea? If you are afflicted with the Can’t Keep A Pair Of Earrings Together Disorder, you must employ this quick and easy remedy. No more fishing around for a lone […]
Take a look around your room. Peek in your closet. Does a certain color rule the roost? Green has long been my favorite color, but I’ve definitely noticed a trend over the past decade. Most of my big ticket, beads-of-sweat-forming-on-the-brow-as-I-pull-out-my-wallet purchases have been in the bright grassy green shade that I love so much. Color […]
Hey, frustrated people of the world! Is your iPhone battery sucking wind lately? Do you wake up, unplug your fully-charged iPhone from the charger, only to have it dead as a doornail by 3pm? Are you nodding your heads out there? Can I share a tip or two? Great! You see, I spent some time […]
I adore Joslyn’s blog. Whether I’m searching for inspiration or adding a few things to my must-have list, I can always count on her impeccable eye and stellar taste. And if THAT wasn’t enough, many of her posts focusing on parenting make me want to yell “ME TOOOOOOO” at the top of my lungs because […]
I’m not much of a daytime TV gal, so I’d be embellishing if I told you that I watched Oprah regularly. I don’t. However, I admire her endlessly. Last year, right around the time the Babies movie was released, I saw that Oprah was doing a segment about the movie on her show. I set […]
Hi, all. I’m finding it a little hard to jump back into this website, but I think I just need to do it. How about I announce the winner of the Apple & Bee Giveaway? Baby steps, you see. The winner of the darling envelope makeup bag is #60, Amy! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! […]
I started a new writing job in January. (It’s my dream job! I love it so much! Website isn’t launching until this summer! Annoyingly vague!) I’ve designated one full, uninterrupted, nanny-to-the-rescue day a week to writing and filming videos for the job, and so far, it’s been great. However, as I was approaching a deadline […]
I have never laughed so hard in my life. BUY THIS BOOK. NOW.
The Tassimo T20 and our slightly miffed French press looking on… When the folks at Tassimo contacted me about sending one of their T20 Brewers my way, I jumped on the chance. Here’s why: 1. I love coffee. (A half cup to full cup at most.) 2. D loves coffee. (Two cups, please.) 3. I […]
Wito loves the movie Cars. Yes, we all know this…I sound like a broken record over here in regards to that movie, but the boy is obsessed. (And the obsession has lasted for over two years. At least he’s consistent!) We’ve been collecting the Cars diecast cars for a couple of years now, and not […]
I’m not sure if I ever professed my love for Diapers.com, but we buy all of our diapers, wipes and basically all things baby at the site. (I’ve even found cute clothes!) I’ve never been a crowd person, so ordering from a website keeps me from having to deal with the Hell That is Target […]
