Because I Said So: Not Always The Right Response To Kids


Life of a Mom

About once a month my boys will spend the night at my mother-in-law’s house.  They absolutely love it.  Who doesn’t like staying with Grandma?  Grandmothers always let you get away with everything and give you everything you want.

How I Survived Being Stuck In The House With My Kids


Life of a Mom

A 3-day weekend turned into a mini vacation.  This sounds like a good thing, right?  Not having to go to work for 5 straight days.  Only working Thursday and Friday then back to the weekend.  Not having to use any PTO.  This would be a good thing if…I wasn’t stuck in the house with my […]

Bucket Lists: Forgotten Dreams of a Mom


Life of a Mom, Life of a Wife, Life of Leigh

The dreaded ice breaker.  All corporate meetings are started with what someone thought would be a great idea to get the audience engaged.  However, it almost always turns into an opportunity to make everyone feel even more awkward than they already do.  There I was, awkward and racking my brain on what my answer would […]

Cheap Date Night Ideas


Life of a Wife

We love to eat and try new restaurants.  It’s kind of our thing.  And when we go out, we get appetizers (plural), drinks and then our main course.  Then, we typically go to an ice cream spot nearby.  Our dinners get expensive.  Good food is worth it.  But, the way our budget is setup, we […]

Life of a Mom, Life of a Professional

“Mommy, why do you have to work all the time?” I was both proud and heartbroken at the same time.  There I was sitting on the couch, laptop open and typing away.  Both boys were fed and bathed.  It was long before bedtime and most of my mommy chores were done.  I thought I was […]
