Is that a polo on my animal crackers?!?
|

From the outside, I may not look preppy. But I am totally preppy at heart. While I haven’t donned a polo shirt since forced to for a family Christmas card in 2006, my heart races a little when I pass the tiny Ralph Lauren’s at Macy’s. So color me surprised when whilst luxuriating in Target…

I came across this blog called The Cupcake Activist recently. This is a girl after my own heart. To say she enjoys cupcakes would probably be an understatement. If you look at her blog, you will see that she has visited a ton of shops and taken the time to review a bunch of them…

Work it Out

Right now my four month old is on his stomach on the floor crying and waiting for me to come and turn him back over. Now you see, I originally laid him on his back. He turned himself over, therefore, in my opinion, he should be able to return to the way he started, no?…

Stuck on You

For some reason I knew that I wanted to use this title for this post, yet now I can’t get the cheesy Lionel Richie lyrics out of my head. I apologize in advance if seeing this post invokes those same memories for you. I realize I talk a lot about my kids on this blog…
