T’was the Morning After Christmas

T’was the morning after Christmas…. and what should you do? The answer is easy! Jump in your car and head to the nearest Walgreens, CVS, Target etc and look for the health and beauty gift section. Just like wrapping paper, decorations, and holiday candy, anything packaged as a holiday gift set will be half off or more, the day after Christmas. If you have loved ones who are in need of cologne sets, perfume sets or shower gel sets, definitely use the morning of December …

Gift Giving Guide for Kids who Need Nothing

Tis the season for giving, but let’s not go overboard, especially for kids (like mine) who have more than enough.  You wouldn’t know it if you visited my house, but I consider myself to be a minimalist. I believe everything has a place and countertops are meant to be free of clutter. I’m also a lover of experiences and memories rather than things. However, I’m outnumbered 5 to 1 in my house and they all like things. And while I don’t like all the things, …

Trick-Or-Treating Traditions

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love Halloween? I told the other #hustlemoms I’d write something this month so I’ve been thinking about what to write about and how I felt about Halloween for a few weeks now. If you had to guess, whether or not I’d be into Halloween, what would you say? If you guessed “she’s not that into it”, you’re right.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike Halloween, nor do I have a problem with anyone …

A Merry, Merry Tradition

I love traditions. And in the craziness of schedules and the hustle and bustle I think it is more important than ever to make them. Having something wonderful to look back on as my three get older is so important to me. What are the little things? What are the things we did every year that will bring a smile to their faces when they are older? I think about these things and try to make sure there are moments they will hold on to. …

Leave A Shoe By the Door

For the first time in my life, I did not leave one of my shoes by the front door before I went to bed on December 5. I was out of town for work and as soon as I added our week-long work event to my calendar, I saw the conflict with the annual entry I have at 8 p.m. on December 5 to “Leave Shoes Out For St Nick” and my heart sank a little. No no no. I am not a crazy person. …

Paper Chains, Mashed Potatoes, Ricky Bobby and Road Trips

Would you hate me if I said Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday? It is. I’m not a grinch, I’m not an ass. I’m a realist. I do not like Thanksgiving food, period. I do not eat turkey. I have no interest in stuffing or cranberries or pumpkin pie or any of these traditional Thanksgiving, fall foods. The best I could hope for as a kid is that someone would have mashed potatoes that weren’t doused in butter and had absolutely no gravy on them. …

First Generation Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

My children are being raised in a household with two working parents, I was raised by two working parents, as was my mother and to my knowledge her mother before her.  Regardless of the obstacle of time – we are all culinarily inclined. We can make a mean roast, soup, stew, chop, steak and a slew of vegetables to ride alongside (pardon me as I pat myself on the back). Despite our culinary prowess, at some point in our family tree making mashed potatoes fell …

My Un-Birthday Birthday

Today is Thursday and I celebrated my birthday on Monday. As wonderful as my day was, something has been bothering me since my day of ‘whatever I want’. I bought myself breakfast, walked down to the lake with my pink raft, sunscreen, and a mini-cooler full of beers. I lathered up in the annoying white substance that protects me from becoming a lobster and popped open a beer. I congratulated myself on remembering to bring a bottle opener and raised my beer for an invisible …
