• A Relaxed Weekend

    I am beat guys. I need a breather. The end of school is a real energy suck, am I right? This Monday also marked 9 months since I lost my brother. 9 months! I am trying to wrap my head around that. Heading into Summer is very bittersweet. We are so excited for a break at the beach but Summer was my time with my brother. We spent every weekend together. Seriously, every weekend. It is going to be a difficult adjustment for all of us; I am going to cut myself some slack as I navigate this new path. Soooo on that note…. you get a greatest hits post.…

Athleta High Neck Tie Back Tankini– Bathing Suits are hard……

  • Cutting The Cord…

    Cable. Do you still have it? This seems to be a constant conversation on the local moms’ message boards around here and even came up the other night at a dinner out with friends. It is just so expensive. Do we really need it? Do you really watch all those channels? The answer is no. The NY Times just recently had an article¬†referencing how much of an energy draw those cable DVR boxes are. Seriously, they suck more energy than one can imagine. In 2011 it was reported that “a single DVR unit chewed through as much as 275 kilowatt-hours per year, more than half as much as some Energy…
