To Ve’ or Not to Ve’

To Ve’ or Not to Ve’

I am a meat eater. There’s nothing better in this world than a medium-rare rib eye. My mouth waters just thinking about slicing into that tender, juicy, pink meat. Delightful. Yet I’m thinking of becoming a vegetarian for the month of January. I asked my hubbie, “What do you think?” “I think that’s my worst … Continue reading

December Health and Fitness Challenge Week 3

For the month of December I’ve taken on AtlantaMomOfThree’s  Health and Fitness Challenge. She challenged us to set an exercise goal for the month and to report how we did on Mondays.

Love My Neighbor

Love My Neighbor

“Waaaahhhhhh!” I hear my daughter screaming at the top her lungs. I swoop in for the rescue. She’s just learned to walk, and her unsteady legs caused her trip and scrape her face on the brick wall of our porch.

For the month of December I’ve taken on AtlantaMomOfThree’s  Health and Fitness Challenge. She challenged us to set an exercise goal for the month and to report how we did on Mondays.

I was plagued with the guilt of decision making. Should I stay or should I go? My women’s bible study was having a social last night, a cookie swap for a time to get to know each other. I really wanted to go because I’m new to the group and wanted to hang out with … Continue reading

Viva La Resistance

Viva La Resistance

Babies are asleep. I’ve got my workout clothes on and just unwrapped my brand new Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD. Place the video in the DVD player. Hit play. Menu pops up. The menu shows the work out as the second option. I need the remote to select it.  You think they would put all … Continue reading

Top 5 Toys for One Year Olds

Two little girls are bumping on the floor. Both are quick and like to explore. Who will be one as swift as a fox? Who will be the first to climb in the box? Two baby girls are bumping, pushing, and striving to be the one who scrambles into the empty diaper box first. Baby … Continue reading

Gurgles of Joy

Gurgles of Joy

Life is precious. I’m seated on the floor between my twin girls as they giggle and gurgle with joy to themselves while exploring the living room floor. A little one glances over her shoulder every few minutes to confirm I’m still seated. They remain content so long as I’m with them. I tend to complain … Continue reading
