Photo Cards or Traditional Cards?

One of the most fun things I used to do every holiday season was head to Barnes and Noble (or wherever) and pick out holiday cards to send to friends and family. More often than not we choose "Holiday Greetings" instead of "Merry Christmas" since ...

Angelina Jolie Says Motherhood Changes the Way You Look

Does Angelina Jolie look any different to you? She does to me. To the untrained (i.e., non-parental) eye, Jolie may look simply a little older than she used to--and, well, she is. But, my husband has suggested in the past, and I agree with him comp...

When "placenta brain" attacks

Braving the voting lines with your kids

What to do with old concert T-shirts

When I was a teenager, I spent a lot of time listening to music, and perhaps even more money on t-shirts from the concerts I attended. I've kept them faithfully over the years. In fact, they've traveled from Kentucky to New York several times and h...

The best Father's Day presents are FREE!

Lately it seems a lot of pressure has been placed on getting presents for each other for pretty much every holiday that comes around in a year. I don't know if it's the economy, the effect of its sluggishness on me, or some sort of pregnancy hormone ...

Mr. Howard seems to think so! After reading this snippet on IMDB, I'm starting to think so too! Actor Terrence Howard, known best perhaps for those gorgeous eyes, has admitted to threatening to kill his daughter's boyfriend. The Iron Man (and, my...

Is your house a mess?

Well, whether you care to admit it or not, mine is. It seems that no matter what I--or my fabulous husband, who picks up a good 50% of the household duties--do the place is still a total disaster. And I live in a one-bedroom apartment; it's not lik...

Giving thanks where thanks are due

To my husband's eternal frustration, I am a 'glass half empty' kind of girl. Despite my efforts at change, I tend to see the negative side of things first. I appreciate the benefit of looking at the bright side, it just doesn't come naturally to me. ...
