Who Needs a Fast Family Recipe? Everybody!

If your household is like mine…we try to make dinner close to every night. Between the cost of eating out, the unhealthy food choices you can make when dinner isn’t prepared, and the fact that you’ve got leftovers for lunch the next day…it just makes sense. But we’re a two-working-parent household. It’s either got to

The Christmas Rush

Yeah, so the holidays. I was just looking at the binder I use at work to keep everything organized…it’s still on October. These last two months have been a blur. Between Holiday Wish, a 4th birthday party, Christmas to do lists and unwelcomed visits from the stomach flu and croup…it’s been

Lanette’s Blog: The Day That Might Have Been

So it came and went and . . . I’m OK.  I knew I would be, but the date just sort of lingered out there, dangling in front of my face, and I had no desire to grab it.  The day I was supposed to bring our third baby home,

Customer Service is Key

If you’ve never used Etsy.com for just about anything your heart desires – you’re missing out.  I’ve used it for almost every invitation for anything I’ve ever hosted.  So it was no different when I began to plan my son Everett’s 4th birthday.  He asked for Minions, so Minions he will have!  I worked

A Heart Warming Story for Your Day

My husband Marc has been traveling for work.  As you well know, doing bedtime alone with multiple kiddos is comparable to juggling seven balls, three bowling pins and a chainsaw.  It’s been fun to say the least.  But last night, Marc didn’t have a work dinner so he was able to Facetime with

Parenting is Tough to Plan

Whoa – time is flying by!  I apologize for turning into quite the slacker with updating my blog.  Roman turned one year old and Everett had his first day of Pre-school all in one week.  Now that I’ve had time to chew on this and fully digest it, my brain

Where Did the Year Go?

The fact that a year has gone by since I got to hold and kiss my sweet Roman for the first time is mind-blowing. Life with two kids under three began with the realization that I needed to cut myself some slack. If you're headed down this path, or right
