Acting a Fool

Last night I had the interesting experience of attending a “Laughter Yoga Party”.  Have you ever heard of this?  It’s a bunch of people you’ve never met, standing around acting goofy and laughing at each other.  It’s so weird.  I seriously felt like I was on Romper Room.  Seeing a bunch of fully-grown adults act…

Product Review! Allie’s Highlighter

I went and bought the L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter that Allie recommended in her post; Backyard Barbeque Beauty, and here’s my review! Normally I use MAC’s Studio Finish concealer, which is described on their website as being “discreetly opaque”.  I’d agree with that, so I’ve become accustomed to that type of thing. This highlighter is…

Celebrating a Beautiful Little Person’s Birth

We recently threw a birthday party for Brooke.  This is my second attempt at a kid birthday party since becoming a mother 5 years ago.  My first attempt was when Brooke was 1. Every new mom is pretty much obligated to throw a first birthday party for their first child.  Some decide to continue to…

I’ve been majorly MIA, mentally for weeks now.  I love this little blog and it’s hard when I’m so busy that I can’t give it tons of attention.  It’s not that I’m too busy, really, it’s that when I’m really busy at work, I’m not doing lots of cool DIY and cooking projects, so I…

Let’s Talk Business – Hell Week

I feel like it’s such a cliche to say, but this week was so freaking busy!!!!  I’m reeling from it, and it’s not even over yet.  Working as a freelancer is wonderful, but one of the things a person needs to be prepared for is the inconsistency of it. I have about 5 steady clients. …

Meal Planning – Kid Food!

035

Today is my Brookie’s 5th birthday!  Most people would say 5 years flew by, but I think it felt like 5 years.  Brooke is a beautiful fairy sprite, and I am completely head over heels in love with her.  She came into this world and completely turned mine upside down.  Being her mom has taught…
