Product Review: Clark’s Bendables

When I was a little girl, my uncle bought me a pair of Clark’s shoes. To say I loved these shoes would be putting it mildly. They were black suede loafers with a slight heel (maybe an inch and a half or so). I remember feeling so sophisticated and grown […]

Small Talk Six Things I Can’t Believe I Say…

Oh. My. Gosh. Six things that I say that I don’t want my children to repeat? Yikes! I don’t even want to type them for fear they may read them. Kidding. Mom doesn’t have a potty mouth, but she does have some spectacular expressions: 1. “Freakin’ A, dude!” (can be […]

Where is Mitrice Richardson?

Another black woman has gone missing and, as usual, the case is receiving very little media coverage despite the unusual circumstances surrounding the woman’s disappearance. Mitrice Richardson, 24, was reportedly intoxicated and unable to pay her $89 bill at Geoffrey’s restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on Thursday, 17 […]

Free Coffee from Starbucks…..Mmmmmm

I love coffee. And not just any coffee. I love Starbucks coffee (big mistake closing the store in Dallas – just throwing that out there). I really love the Espresso Truffle. Drool. Now that the store in Dallas has closed (hint) I have to drive out to Wilkes-Barre whenever I […]

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…

I remember when I used to pull the petals off flowers and hope that I ended with “he loves me.” If I didn’t, I knew the problem – he was an idiot who would come to rue the day he ever let me go. The problem was never me. Yes, […]

I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but sometime after my 32nd birthday I became lactose intolerant. For a heavy milk drinker, this was devastating (afterall, milk does do a body good). After many unsuccessful attempts at eating dairy I finally gave up and accepted that my days of eating […]

Kabul 24 tells the story of eight Westerners and their sixteen Muslim co-workers and their three-month long imprisonment by the Taliban in Afghanistan. For three months in 2001, the twenty-four members of Shelter Now International (SNI) are held hostage in the days leading up to the September 11th attacks. This […]

Lunch Note Promise

I’m a sappy mom. I admit it. I mean, I talk a good game but when it comes down to it I’m a softie when it comes to my babies. I cry when I look at their baby pictures. I have a small, disgusting, collection of cracked baby teeth in […]

Store Review: I Went Clubbin’ at Sam’s

Last week, I blogged that my husband and I finally purchased memberships to Sam’s Club and that I was looking forward to seeing if membership really does have its privileges…. Entering Sam’s is like entering a whole new dimension where time and space cease to exist. It is literally a […]
