A Tale of Two Resorts: Disney’s Grand Floridian & Wyndham Lake Buena Vista

Tweet Last month, my girls and I had the opportunity to take a road trip down to Orlando, FL for my annual TravelingMom retreat. We really enjoyed the time together both on the road and at the parks – especially since the girls are older now and much more self-sufficient. For three nights, we had […]

Just one night…

Tweet At least that’s what I figured a couple of months ago when I agreed to head to New York City this week for a blog event that the Ragu ‘Moms the Word on Dinner’ Ambassadors were invited to in the middle of September. School would have already been in session for a couple of […]

Wordless Wednesday #199 – A thousand feet up!

Tweet On Saturday, I was in Chicago for the Midwest Moms Media Brands and Bloggers Summit put on by my friend MJ Tam at Chicagonista. It was an amazing day full of catching up with friends, meeting new bloggers, learning how to better partner with companies and brands, and networking with the many brand representatives […]

Still on Arizona time…

Tweet It’s been over a week since Becca and I got home from Arizona and I think we’ve settled back into the normal routine of ‘home’ pretty well. At least mostly – with one exception. My internal clock seems to still be operating 3 hours behind… This isn’t a complete surprise to me – even […]

As much as I love to travel (and I do!), it’s nice to be home too

Tweet Wow, I never thought I’d say this, but I’m ready for a weekend just to relax at home! I feel like these past few weeks have been all go-go-go, with very little down time. Even the time that I’ve been here at home has been full of stuff that’s needed to get done. Which […]

Mommy & Becca time

Tweet It’s odd – although I spend more time alone with Becca than either of the other girls nowadays, I really don’t know if I’d call much of it ‘quality time’. We have our usual routine and quite often it involves me trying to get things done online or around the house and Becca having […]

(Not Very) Wordless Wednesday #191 – Gleek Retreat via Instagram

Tweet Have I mentioned how much I love the Instagram iPhone app*?? It’s so easy to get and share pictures and you can edit them right there on your phone using their presets very quickly and easily. I had a lot of fun taking and sharing photos over the weekend at Gleek Retreat, and even […]

Missing out

Tweet Don’t you always feel like you’re being pulled in different directions? I wear so many hats – wife, mom, blogger, friend, person… And it doesn’t always seem like there’s enough time in the day to do everything that I know I should be doing for all of them. Back when I worked full-time, I […]
