It’s crazy to think about, but Will is going to be turning 1 next week!  I can’t believe it! It’s with mixed emotions that I am celebrating his first birthday.  I actually think I am having just as hard of a time with this as I did with Christmas.  I actually started talking about his approaching birthday in therapy about a month ago!  I’ve been “dreading” it since then! It is so incredibly … Continue reading

Earth Hour 2014 Participant

Did you participate in Earth Hour this year?  I did!!! If you’re not familiar with Earth Hour, I talk about in this post, click here to read all about it! Anyways, as I was saying, I participated in Earth Hour this year.  From 8:30pm to 9:30pm, I turned off all the lights and lit some candles!  I was actually also working on my laptop at that time, so I unplugged it.  I’m not really sure if that was helpful or not though! 🙂 It was kinda fun!  And different!  I almost felt like I was in the “olden days” when … Continue reading

How to Join Earth Hour 2014

Just last week, I was reminding my mom to throw something, maybe a glass jar, into the recycling bin. She said, “You know, you’ve always been that way.” I asked, “What way?” thinking it was about something bad. She replied, “Into recycling and saving the earth.  I remember telling my co-workers about things you were doing when you were just a little girl.” Oh… Yeah, it’s true.  I have always been passionate about the environment.  When I was a little girl, maybe 7 years old, my friends and I had a “Save the Earth” club.  We would pick up trash … Continue reading

Kale and Fruit Smoothie!

I am far from a perfect mom.  VERY far!  I make mistakes ALL. THE. TIME. I’ve yelled at my kids when my patience is short.  I let them watch cartoons, A LOT of cartoons, when I’m having a bad day.  I do not keep the house immaculate.  I don’t really know how to discipline them.  They are not always under my constant supervision, sometimes I sneak away to check my email, Facebook, or Pinterest.  And I do not always feed them the healthiest, organic, non-processed food. But I try my hardest to be a GOOD mom.  Not perfect, but GOOD. … Continue reading

Mind, Body, and Soul

Mind. Body. Soul. We hear about those all the time, right?  Some, like the quote from B.K.S. Iyengar below, might say that these 3 concepts make up our entire lives.  And that a balance between them is needed to feel fulfilled and happy in life. In other words, you can’t only focus on one aspect, you need to pay attention to all three… Well, that kind of makes sense to me, although I’m not 100% sold on this theory…  I guess I’m not really sure of anything anymore… Obviously in my cuh-razy situation, I’m dealing with A LOT, and I … Continue reading

Let’s Get This Party Started Right!
