A New Home!

Hi everyone! When I started this blog, I was copying my cousin who was keeping us all updated on her family in Arizona.  I thought it would be fun to blog here and there, show off some pictures of the kiddos and blog about my weight loss adventure. It became so much more than that. … Continue reading

The Perfect Football Birthday Party

The Perfect Football Birthday Party

For weeks I have been trying to plan the perfect 10th birthday party for my son (or Booby Boo, as you all know him now).  I’ve been stressed out, baking like a maniac, planning, writing lists, making invitations.  My son does not get a big birthday party every year so I wanted this one to … Continue reading

Happy 10th Birthday, Booby Boo!!

Happy 10th Birthday, Booby Boo!!

10 years ago, at this time, I was lying in a hospital bed preparing for a c-section.  I was relieved and scared.  So so scared. 10 years ago I became a Mommy to a beautiful baby boy.  I couldn’t even imagine how smart he would have turned out.  How sweet and sensitive.  How funny. Happy … Continue reading

“Little Kicks” or I Dance Like Elaine

Dear blog friends, My husband says I can’t dance. He thinks I resemble this: You’ve seen this episode of Seinfeld, right?

September 11, 2001

I’ve been reading and watching everything I can on 9-11 today.  I do every year.  I share my thoughts and my remembrances with my kids and try to get them to understand just how that day changed the world forever. Of course, the most asked question today has been:  Do you remember what you were … Continue reading

There’s No Place Like The Neighborhood

There’s No Place Like The Neighborhood

Applebee’s holds a soft spot in my heart. It all started by an impromptu visit during a Mardi Gras parade more than 10 years ago.  The restaurant wasn’t busy and we sat next to a window where we could see the floats go by.  Our waiter was Jimmy.  Wait – I know what you are … Continue reading
