As you know, I love vacations. Hate the packing, always forget a toothbrush, my razor, and my favorite tank. So I look uncute and stubbly. I digress. I usually like going away with just my family. I have never been into group trips. I am always scared of the other families’ dynamics. Would they match with mine? Would their vacation rules mesh with ours?
I have also heard horror stories about good friends going away together, then coming back enemies.
But this Labor Day weekend … Continue Reading »
It’s happened sooner than I expected. I mean, I know it’s coming by December, and not ending until around April, but I was a little surprised for it now. Thank goodness I am always prepared. Scott came home today with the well known, “I am not feeling that great, I think I have a cold, “I am going to lay down.”
Now I hope by now you know by now that I am not a cold bitch, but I can’t express to you enough … Continue Reading »
First let me just say that no one is happier than me that you are engaged. I have struggled with you through the years. I was cheering for you and Vince Vaughn, and I have even gone so low as to say, “I don’t think Brad’s kids are that cute!” So I am really vested in this engagement and really want you and Justin to work out. I thought about getting you a great salad bowl from William Sonoma, but I felt my marital advice … Continue Reading »
When your kids have been away all summer, sometimes the parent may fantasize about them. Like, I wish they were here. We have so much fun together! I can’t wait for the activity and noise again. Then they come home, and at dinner, her oldest says, “When I have kids, I am not going to spoil them like you guys have spoiled me.” I would have more character if I weren’t spoiled.”
Now if you have read any of my previous … Continue Reading »
As promised, I have a few recommended items that might make your medicine cabinet a more lean mean fighting machine. Your makeup counter, organized and beautiful.
My problem, as you can gather from yesterday’s post, Is There A Quick Fix?, is that I am constantly trying a new product, a new lipstick, a new blush.
I guess because I have committed to one man for the rest of my life, I need … Continue Reading »
I have had a hard time sleeping. Waking up at about 4am every morning. I quietly go into my son Jack’s empty room and turn on the TV. And let me tell you, there is a wealth of information on TV at that time.
Did you know that Cindy Crawford is part of an incredible discovery of a magic melon that will stop aging?
Jane Seymour still has long hair, and too has discovered the secret to perfect skin. I found out … Continue Reading »
Now even though I live in Florida, and the only seasons we have are Hot and Not So Hot, I still enjoy the idea that everyone is supposed to shop a few things for Fall. I am realistic about my lifestyle, stick to purchasing mostly staples, and try to stay away from too many trends. If I do go trendy, I will usually buy those items in Forever 21. It’s a great store, they are always on trend, and I don’t have to spend a lot of money on items I know I won’t wear next year, like a peplum … Continue Reading »
Not really a post today. Just funny. Well, I think it’s funny. So as you know, kids are at camp. It has been so long that I am starting to feel a little bad about it. We are entering our last week. One more week of pictures, one more week of running to the mailbox. One more week of napping at 4:45 in the afternoon cause I can. I am actually forcing myself to nap, because once my kids get home I don’t want … Continue Reading »
