The Motherhood Work-Life Swing Dance

My least favorite part of flying with children isn’t waiting in line to drop my bags, or wrangling my shoes and laptop into bins and a stroller through the conveyor belt with a baby in my arms. I can tolerate a fussy baby and an...


Photo Therapy

I would think that based on this blog, you would know a few things about me: I love my children and my family, I can't resist a good adventure, and I have a hobby of taking and sharing photos. Lots of photos. Growing up, I was...


No Coincidences

This is a quick addendum to my previous post regarding my benefit in May for Cookies for Cancer. If you are a frequent visitor here, you've probably noticed that I don't have any ads on my site. I tore them all down when I realized that...



Today is a big day. I'm thrilled and over-the-moon excited to announce the launch of my new website, Two Sides One Story. I've joined forces with Josh Becker of DadStreet to create a blog that will take a gander into the lives of both mommy bloggers...


Hangin’ with the Wimpy Kids

One of the most amazing parts of being involved in social media right now is the opportunities to meet and talk with people that are living their dreams. I'll never tire of the stories I hear from these individuals...


Social Media: My First Panel

Nickelodeon All Access Cruise Pt Deux

Days 4-7 After spending the first three days on the boat, we were all ready to be on land and put our toes in the sand. We started off our morning as usual, but I made sure to tuck a couple extra boxes of Cheerio's in...


Wherein Patti Stanger Makes Me Blush

Last week I was invited (along with a few other bloggers) to interview Patti Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker, who teamed up with Cottonelle to chat with us about her Valentine's Day tips and tricks and what makes relationships last. She spoke a little about her...


Bethenny Frankel, Pampers and MGC

This past week, Bethenny Frankel was in town to promote and share Pamper's new incentive program, "Gifts to Grow". Bloggers and other media representatives were invited to get pampered with facials, massages and mani-pedis while chatting with Frankel. I was home and shuffling through various doctors...


Winterizing my Wardrobe with Nate Berkus

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to appear in a Nate Berkus show segment with Dannielle Kyrillos called "Instant Wardrobe Updates". The producer called me the week before and asked me to arrive at the CBS studios in very specific attire: Cardigan and shell...


Accidentally Extraordinary

If I knew then what I know now, nothing would be the same. I like it that way. About eighteen months ago, my life changed in just about every way possible. I was a second time new mother, and learned that we would be moving across...
