Mommy Wars are a Real Thing


Clan Wars. Civil Wars. Gang Wars. World Wars. There are so many types of wars. But until you’ve become one yourself, you may not be aware of the most overwhelming… The Mommy Wars. At least with the other types of wars, you KNOW your enemy.  You can be prepared for the attack – the knife […]

Giant Triple Chocolate Chunk and Citrus Cookies


What a mouthful, right? Truly, and in every sense of the word.  A MOUTHFUL. You may have noticed on Twitter and Facebook that I have been any and everywhere this summer.  In reality, I’ve been home maybe 10 full days since the start of the summer.  I’m not complaining, mind you – I really enjoy […]

Running the Mudderella


“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mudderella. I received complimentary admission to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” About one year ago, I started a new diet and exercise program. If you know me at all, you’ll know that giving […]

Winston Salem, NC…A Travel Gem


I am about to admit to you something that makes me SAD. I have lived less than 2 hours away from Winston Salem, NC my entire life.  Forever.  For months and months, I made the 1 hour, 48 minute drive twice a week, down to my doctor, in hopes of getting pregnant, finally. Twice a […]

Blogger Bash 2015 #BBNYC


A couple of weeks ago, I attended my first Blogger Bash in New York City. I am a blogger. I go to conferences. I KNOW conferences. But Blogger Bash was such a uniquely different experience for me.  Unlike the foodie conferences I am used to, Blogger Bash was full of toys and parties and dresses […]

Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


That kind of sounds like a stutter, doesn’t it? Chocolate Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. Why the double Chocolate? Well, that’s because I have Chocolate Mint. Did you know there is such a thing? There is! It’s mint, it has a brownish tinge to the edges, and it smells and tastes vaguely of cocoa. Strangest thing, […]

Frozen Chocolate Coffee Mousse


Sometimes you just want to be a little fancy. I get that. I want to be fancy sometimes too. Instead of cupcakes, I’ll bake mini-cakes in fluted liners (still a cupcake, but so stylish); Instead of a big pie, I’ll make mini tarts and gussy them up. And instead of mousse in a bowl, I’ll […]

Canadian Lentils…at Blogger Bash


Last week I attended the Blogger Bash in New York City. As an AMBASSADOR. My first foray into the mom/lifestyle blogging event, and I was lucky enough to be chosen not only as a VIP, but as an AMBASSADOR.  This roll came with lots of wonderful opportunities, some behind-the-scenes adventures, some great meals, some NEW […]

#UniteMonday or Mom of the Year Award Goes Not to ME


As parents, we all do things we give ourselves grief over. At least I THINK we all do. I know I do. Instead of feeling guilty about it, I’m joining the Sisterhood of Motherhood and celebrating #UniteMonday. Every Monday follow the hashtag #UniteMonday on Twitter and Facebook and share any of your rules you bent […]
