Product Review: Kashi TLC Chewy Trail Mix Granola Bar

At the beginning of the month I started an exercise program in an effort to lose a little weight. As part of that program, I’m always on the look out for healthy snacks that I can munch on during the day ~ gotta stay away from the candy bars and […]

Mom, What’s for Dinner?

That’s the first thing my kids ask me when they walk through the door at the end of a long school day. Sometimes they even ask me that question as I’m driving them to the bus stop in the morning. I used to just mutter something along the lines of […]

I’m Rocking the Red Pump

Flashback Fridays

It’s funny that I stumbled across this post this morning because I was just talking to the kids about my dad earlier this week. My dad was wonderful! I know every girl thinks her dad is the best, but my dad really was. When we were little my dad and […]

Truthful Tuesdays

Inspired by my friend, The (Un)Experienced Mom, I decided to answer the question posed at Confessions from a Working Mom for Truthful Tuesday: “Have you ever lost something….And come out a winner?” Many years ago, I was a Corporal and my husband was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. He […]
