Fresh & Easy Marinara Sauce

This weekend, after a frustrating week at home with the kids, I needed an escape. A friend asked if I would like to spend an evening with her and another mutual friend. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance! After much discussion, the three of us decided to go out for dinner at a local Italian restaurant. As we waited to place our orders, the three of us talked about how we were all picky eaters. We learned, though, how we were each picky in different ways. One person didn’t like sauces, and another didn’t like certain vegetables. Me,

My Love Affair with Stand-Up Comedy

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.  Years ago, as a teenager at a time when my parents briefly had cable, I found myself bored and clicking through the channels looking for something to watch after everyone else had gone to bed. I stumbled on a program with a woman telling jokes to an audience. As I watched, I became captivated and amused. Soon, I was laughing out loud, and I had a woman

Mondays suck! They just do. It’s not because I can’t sleep in. My kids won’t let us sleep in on the weekend either. (Oh, and anyone who claims that once you become a parent you’ll turn into a morning parent is WRONG! That or they are deluded. Seriously deluded.) No, Mondays just feel crappy. You know you have to do things that you can avoid on the weekend, like pay bills or clean or kick your kids to the curb on time to wait on a school bus that is always late.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some bright

Monday is here, loud and proud! Of course, my girls decided that they wanted to get up extra early this morning, 5:45. Ugh! I’ve crawled into this day with as much energy as I can muster (which isn’t a lot since the baby kept me up late). Thank goodness I get to share my list of fantastically funny Facebook posts to make today a bit brighter! With it being “Back to School” time across the country, Mondays have gotten that much harder. Now we have to get ourselves ready and our kids out the door to school. Ginny, my oldest,

Confessions of a Potty Training Failure (& Giveaway)

Confessions of a Potty Training Failure (& Giveaway)

Disclosure: I am doing this review in exchange for a one-year subscription of the KidloLand Nursery Rhymes App. I love being honest about all my reviews so all opinions really are my own! I’m a failure. I can put up beautiful pictures of my kids on Facebook and show happy moments, but it hides the truth. I suck! Well, more specifically, I suck at potty training my children. It all started when I tried to potty train my oldest, Ginny. She was two and therefore ready to start learning how to use the potty, or so I thought. Ginny did

Another Monday? That must mean another week of hysterically funny Facebook posts from yours truly. Well, I didn’t write them all, others did, but you’ve got the idea.  I normally include my funny posts in this round-up, but not this week. I just wasn’t that funny, or my kids weren’t. We spent hours with each other in the minivan, and they are driving me up the wall. This year is the first time where I’m ready to ship them all off to school. Of course, I only have one old enough to attend school full-time.  Between impromptu road trips to

It has been a busy week in my world. My three-year-old FINALLY decided she might start potty training. Of course, a few days later, we had to go on a last minute trip to South Dakota. Now all that progress is on hold. (I hate to say lost, but let’s just say she’s not acting interested anymore. Fun times!) Then, the Olympics started! I love the Olympics. I can’t get enough! Naturally, my schedule now includes massive watching of TV (well, when we get back home from South Dakota). One of the highlights to scrolling through Facebook is finding a post

It’s hard for me to believe that it is the end of July. I swear it still feels like June. The calendar, though, makes it clear that the end of summer break is near. Now I find myself getting my oldest ready to start Kindergarten (how can that be??) while trying to convince my middle daughter to potty train (she’s very stubborn) so she can start preschool in a couple of weeks.  I’m glad that I can escape the madness and laugh at funny Facebook posts. Laughter is the best medicine after all. Besides, sometimes it’s nice to know I’m

Odd Things About Me

I’m a sucker. I’m a sucker for every little survey or quiz found on Facebook. Resist? Never. Resistance is futile (yes, I’m a geek). I want to know who should be my best friends for life and where I should live for the rest of my life.These are all-important, life-altering decisions! It helps to have an unbiased source in my decision-making. I’m positive that my favorite color and my favorite animal will tell me if I can survive the zombie apocalypse.   In the last couple of days, I’ve seen friends posting answers to a list of questions. I tried

It’s been pure craziness for the last 24 hours (or so) in my house. I heard that lice made life hell for parents, but I had no idea until now. I’m still not done laundering EVERYTHING. Wow!  Between the lice and the Republican National Convention, it’s been an interesting week. I love that I can escape the madness on Facebook though. Finding the funny can be hard in tough times, but, usually, someone on Facebook is able to make me laugh. Okay, lots of someones. (Is that a word? I doubt it.) Thank goodness! I hope these funny Facebook posts bring
