So You’re Adopting {A few things you should know}

Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in Adoption, Be Informed | 0 comments

So you’ve decided to adopt! Congratulations! Will you do me a favor? Can we pretend we’re sitting across from each other in a coffee shop, hands wrapped around warm drinks, chatting for just a bit? There are a few things I would like to share. Let’s also pretend that you actually asked for my opinion. I am not an expert on all...

How to lock your iPhone Screen (so your kid can play and she won’t accidentally text your boss)

Posted by on Feb 24, 2014 in App Love, Be Informed, Be Inspired, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

I let my kids play with my phone. Not all the time, but there are definitely moments when it comes in handy….like when your 1-year-old is about to have a tantrum in the middle of that cute brunch place….or while waiting in line at the DMV….or when you’re boarding a two-hour flight home at 7am after an...

It has been interesting to really dig into a product and figure out how it works and what makes it special. So I thought I would share my final conclusions….what...

At Midnight.

I forget about the drama that ensued first thing in the morning about what you want to wear. I don’t remember that you spilled pulverized corn flakes all over the couch. I acquire amnesia regarding the incessant begging for “just one more show.” I am blind to the fact that you drug more sticks and leaves that...

Listening to the Messages Our Kids Send Us.

Posted by on Jan 17, 2014 in Adoption, Be Informed, Looking Home | 1 comment

We talk about adoption in our house.  Of course we do. Georgia asks me weekly when we’re going to adopt a brother.  And it MUST be a brother. Georgia asks me to tell her how excited I was when her birthparents told us their baby was a girl the first time we met them.  She’ll say, “Yep.  I was a girl. And you and daddy wanted a...

An Open Calendar…

Posted by on Jan 8, 2014 in Be Informed, Featured Posts, Looking Home | 0 comments

I love January.  The crisp snow, the piercing cold, the new year – they ring in a sort of freshness to the year, a clean start.  I’m a huge ‘new beginnings’ kind of person, but I also love to linger around the new year in remembrance of things that have already passed.  January 4, the day I write this,...

Filtration…is My Friend: #PureAirBlog and my Miele Marin

Posted by on Dec 10, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Looking Home, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 0 comments

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post. It has been almost three months since I started using my Miele Marin, and I’m still loving it…for many different reasons. It’s convenient, efficient, and all-around awesome. But one of the key points of my Miele training back in September was that their vacuums “create a cleaner...

What are your kids doing over Thanksgiving? Free Birds & Chuck E. Cheese?

Posted by on Nov 27, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 0 comments

When my kids and I have some time together, we will often sit down for a “family meeting” where I ask them what they want to do. The two things that always make the list are Chuck E. Cheese and watching a kids movie. Without fail. No existential educational activities, just pure silly fun. We were able to combine the two with the...
