Happy Thursday! Today is a school day. Mornings that there is school, are crazy busy. The girls get up at 7 and we have to be getting in the vehicle by 8. I get up really early on school mornings. If I don’t wake up completely before I start rushing the kids along. So while I wait for them to wake up:
How many times have you tripped over a little body while trying to cook a meal for your family? Instead of calmly chopping up vegetables, sauteing onions, butterflying chicken breast and doing it all perfectly timing everything to be done at the same time you are tripping over little cuties, moving them out of the way and trying to keep them entertained elsewhere.

With three kids, I have a lot of shopping to do and I’d like to still have some money leftover when Christmas has come.

I was cleaning my kitchen table the other day and I found something that made me smile. Before you jump to any conclusions let me explain.
I home schooled my three older children from kindergarten to 6th grade. Every morning we would sit at the kitchen table and do our lessons.
Our home school days are long gone but the memories linger. While cleaning the table I found numbers and math problems carved into the table top. I imagine the kids pressed too hard with their pencils on the soft pine table top.
This find made me smile. It made my heart smile.
My oldest daughter was born prematurely. She was born before medical science was prepared for preemie. There were no preemie clothes, diapers, socks, or hats. She was a pioneer of sorts. Read the rest of this entry →
Hello ladies, thank you for having me today. On my blog Glamista Home, I talk about transforming your world from boring to glam. When I say that, I mean how you can add a little glitter and glam here and there to feel better about yourself. You can create a beautiful way of life with only a few tweaks.
Ladies, we are fabulous! We take care of everyone around us: our partners, our children, parents, our co-workers and pets, but the one person we typically forget is ourselves. How great could it be if we took some time out of the day to spend on us, ourselves, our well-being. Put some mascara on, paint our nails, relax with a cup of tea and a good book. As much as we want to do that, at times we simply don’t have the right place to just let loose.
I think with just a few tweaks here and there, your bedroom could become a glam place where you could relax and recharge! Here are some tips how you can easily make-over your bedroom to a peaceful retreat. Today, I would like to share with you two options. First, will be very easy and inexpensive way to transform your bedroom to a more fabulous and pleasant retreat. The second option will be a little more expensive. However, both will make a huge difference in the way the rooms will look and feel.
