For anyone who has been here before knows, I love nail polish and beauty products. The big problem is finding the time to really play around with colors and brands like I used to. I found a great website, Julep, that gives tons of great options that can be sent right to your door! They also have a beauty blog right on their site with how-to’s and tips for all things beauty! I highly recommend checking them out, they write about everything from an appreciation to Jackie O (seriously, a style queen) to tips on how to store your nail polish collection.
Last nights episode of How I Met Your Mother finally, FINALLY, had Robin and Barney’s wedding. I have to say I will miss this show when it ends next week, it has grown on me a lot over the years. It’s really turned into a thought-provoking show sometimes and this last season has just piled on the contemplative thinking. From last weeks truth about growing out of the friends you have in your youth to this week. There was a part in particular that really stood out to me-wedding vows.

If you can go back and re-write your wedding vows, what would you really want to say? [Read more…]
Life with a two year old has its ups and downs. They become more independent, which is both a blessing and a curse depending on how you look at it. They are more verbal and can tell you what they want easier-again, blessing and a curse. But the appetite of a toddler is a fight you need a will of steel to win.
Spring is finally making an appearance! I see buds on trees, so I wanted to get in a warm frame of mind and make a fruity drink! Thanks to a huge case of pregnancy nesting syndrome, I finally cleared off enough counter space in my kitchen to dig out the blender I got for a wedding gift three years ago! This was delicious and really filled me up! [Read more…]

I am pregnant with my second child and I found out recently that we are expecting another boy! My husband, older son and myself are thrilled. The baby is healthy and has a name, we have all boy themed stuff already so the prep work is minimal and I just love the thought of having two boys close in age growing up together. My husband and I decided a long time ago that two children was going to be our magic number so we are happy to have our unit complete.
Then the commentary began. [Read more…]
